January/February

Then-current SRB2 version: v2.0.4

Brothers Blade and CoatRack, who joined the SRB2 development team on the evening the contest began, managed to together win every division in this contest. This made Spherallic (whom Blade collaborated with on Sunkist Falls Zone) the only entrant with a golden user title; he would later join the development team as well. Sunkist Falls Zone was added to the official CTF rotation in v2.1 as Molten Fissure Zone. Eggmansion Zone Act 1 was a remake of a level from the March/April 2009 OLDC. Despite a positive reception, CoatRack was ultimately dissatisfied with the level and remade it again for inclusion in his level pack Chaos Domain. Buzzards Bay Zone has a faulty nodesbuild; it will crash the game unless it is run through a nodebuilder first.

March/April

Then-current SRB2 version: v2.0.4

The Match and CTF divisions of this contest were considered to be rather weak. Complete Chaos Zone was whipped together in just 60 minutes, but was still considered better than most of the other entries. Sloped Domain Zone received a moderately high score and missed the first place of the Match division by only 0.09 points despite not having a thok barrier, which at the time was required to keep players from walking outside the level boundaries. Clockwork Towers Zone was added to the official CTF rotation in v2.1. Egg Hall Zone is the only Circuit level submitted by Blade that did not win its division, although it was still positively received.

May/June

Then-current SRB2 version: v2.0.6

The outcome of the CTF division in this contest was quite close for a long period of time, with three of the maps having very similar averages and receiving highly contrasting votes. The Race division was even closer, and the outcome was constantly being changed by last-minute votes. Tidal Cave Zone eventually won by a margin of 0.07 points. The Single Player division was considered to be mediocre, although none of the maps received exceptionally low scores. Diamond Blizzard Zone and Radiant Cavern Zone were added to the official Match and CTF rotation in v2.1, respectively.

July/August

Then-current SRB2 version: v2.0.6

The official results for this contest were given 12 days after the voting deadline, due to FuriousFox's unavailability and a week-long downtime of srb2.org. The Single Player and Match winners were the first stages since the release of v2.0 to have an average score above 8. Blade won the Single Player division with a completely remade version of Sapphire Coast Zone Act 1, which had won the Single Player division of the November/December 2007 contest. The Race division consisted solely of rush jobs.

Three submissions were not allowed to the contest. One author did not provide a working link to their map and the other two maps were unplayable due to lack of proper player starts.

  • Golden Palace Zone by Internet Explorer - 5.79
  • Emerald Lake Zone Act 1 by glaber - 4.10

September/October

Then-current SRB2 version: v2.0.6

This contest had very few entries, most of which received low scores. However, the only well-received map, Northern Desert Zone, received a very high score. Because of the low turnout, the voting period was postponed by a week, although not many more maps were submitted in the meantime. Several submissions were rejected for the contest, either because they were unplayable or very bad joke maps. This left Stupid Circuit Zone, also a joke map, as the only entry in the Race division and it therefore automatically won despite its low score.

Single Player division

Frosty Floe Zone.
  • Rainy Jungle Zone by A Cat - 2.35
  • Medivo Zone Act 1 by glaber - 2.50
  • Frosty Floe Zone by Brawl - 3.75

  • MAPM2 - Digital Forest Zone by Metal Fighter - 5.14

Capture the Flag division

  • MAPF1 - Frosted Meadows Zone by NitrousBunny - 4.38
  • MAPF2 - Dead Canyon Zone Act 1 by A Cat - 1.30
  • MAPF3 - Heinous Hidehole Zone by RedEnchilada - 5.75

Circuit division

Stupid Circuit Zone.
  • MAPR1 - Stupid Circuit Zone by Neo Chaotikal - 3.00

November/December

Then-current SRB2 version: v2.0.6

Although this contest was considered an improvement of the previous one, the Single Player and Circuit divisions still had a large percentage of weak maps. The low number of votes in Match and CTF resulted in very close decisions in those divisions. Orange Stream Zone only has 7 Match Starts, so loading the map with more than 7 players will crash the game. Celestial Sanctuary Zone was added to the official Match rotation in v2.1.

While the contest was running, FuriousFox spontaneously left the community without further notice and was unable to be contacted. No official results were declared until Mystic eventually stepped in, over a month after the voting deadline. Almost all late votes were excluded, and to address the lengthy delay and other issues with the OLDC, several substantial rules changes were put into effect for the next contest.

Single Player division

Twilight Isles Zone.
  • Icicle Warehouse Zone Act 1 by glaber - 3.00
  • Flooded Mine Zone Act 1 by Spongecar - 1.75
  • Twilight Isles Zone by Thompson - 7.53

Match division

Setting Sands Zone.
  • MAPM1 - Setting Sands Zone by ZarroTsu - 7.40
  • MAPM2 - Celestial Sanctuary Zone by Mystic - 7.00
  • MAPM3 - Quick Cliffs Zone by Scizor300 - 6.00
  • MAPM4 - Orange Stream Zone by Brawl - 3.33

Capture the Flag division

Seaside Strike Zone.
  • MAPF1 - Castle CTF Zone by Teleporter 412 - 1.37
  • MAPF2 - Water Hall Zone by Kuba11 - 5.00
  • MAPF3 - Seaside Strike Zone by RedEnchilada - 6.00
