Yes, web server outage!

by on Tuesday, April 15, 2014, under News

Yup, we have had a major outage over the last few days. We’ve worked with Art of War Central for years, but they dropped off the planet a little while ago, unknown to us, apparently leaving bills unpaid. The company that actually owned the servers had suspended their account and it has taken a few days to unravel the mess left behind. But here we are – frustrated, but the websites are back up and running. And not before time – we’ve got plenty of news coming at you over the next week or so!

Rising Storm $25,000 “Banzai” Community Mapping Contest Announced!

by on Wednesday, July 10, 2013, under News

Tripwire Interactive are proud to announce the “Banzai” Community Map Making Competition for Rising Storm. Rising Storm is racking up our highest review scores ever and PC Gamer recently named Rising Storm number 12 in it’s list of the 25 best shooters of all time. In light of this success we decided to continue Tripwire Interactive’s tradition of supporting our modding community with a mapping competition for Rising Storm. Last year’s contest for Red Orchestra 2 produced an amazing selection of new community-made maps, so we are expecting great things from the Rising Storm mapping contest. Of course, to add some incentive, we are looking at cash and prizes totaling in excess of $25,000 – the Grand Prize is a full $10,000 in cash.

The contest starts NOW and will run with just a single judging. There will be an initial checkpoint (Checkpoint Alpha) on 3 Sep 2013, where you can submit your maps for some formal feedback from the judges. The final submission (Checkpoint Beta) is due 5 Nov 2013.

The full details for the competition, including rules and entry forms are available on the contest web page: The final details of the prizes will be published soon. You don’t need to submit your entry for the contest until later – but you most probably need to start working on it! Also, keep an eye on the Rising Storm Steam Workshop page for all of the new custom maps coming out:
