Beginning with this year's contests, the following rules changes took effect:

  • The voting period was extended from one week to two.
  • As a result of the above, all votes that are late to be submitted will be excluded, without exception.
  • Single Player levels must now be placed on MAP01, or otherwise load directly into the level upon starting a new game using a MAINCFG setting.
  • Voters must now vote on all maps in any given division, in order to thwart the problem of skewed results. If a voter fails to score all the maps in a division before the deadline, all their votes in that division will be excluded.

Levels in gray are rule-breaking levels and have been disqualified.

January/February

After FuriousFox's disappearance, Mystic took over as the OLDC maintainer, with Prime 2.0 serving as backup, and the rules changes above were instituted. Both the Race and Match division were considered to be of bad quality. As a result, Rush Flower Zone, which was started from scratch only two hours before the deadline and entered at the last minute, won the Match division. Two unplayable maps were included by accident: Grassy Cliffs crashes on load (unless when loaded with SRB2DB), and Misty Mire Zone has broken flag return behavior which makes it impossible to score more than one point.

March/April

Due to initial low interest, this contest was comprised largely of rush jobs, joke maps and generally sub-par entries. Only four out of twelve maps received an above-average score, resulting in an all-time low contest average of 3.92. The Single Player division in particular was considered to be of extremely low quality, with both maps receiving scores below 2. This makes Lakeside Hill Zone the lowest-scoring division winner ever. Egg Hanger[sic] Zone was added to the official Match rotation in 2.1 as Orbital Hangar Zone.

May/June

This contest was generally agreed to be of high quality, especially in the Single Player and CTF divisions. The Single Player division featured three maps with averages above 7, and all of the CTF entries scored higher than 5. However, the Match division was fairly weak, with all maps scoring below 5 and the winner being a joke map.

Three maps were disqualified after the voting began. White Mountain Zone lacks an exit sector and cannot be cleared, Waterway Ruin Zone broke the aforementioned rule of not loading upon starting a new game, and Aries City Zone was submitted with an incorrect gametype in its header (Co-op only).

July/August

This contest is generally considered to be one of the best contests ever. The Single Player division was exceptionally strong, with all maps scoring above 6. Sonic Dumbventure - Volume 1: Donkey Kracken's Disasterous Quest[sic] received the highest score ever given to a Single Player entry and the highest score given to any 2.0 map. While the Match and CTF divisions were not considered quite as strong, they each included one highly-rated map that scored above 8.

The Race division had only one entry, which secured Fawfulfan, who had entered every division, an automatic victory. Two entries in the Match division, Rush Jungle Zone and Storm Stronghold Zone, had the unusually high number of three and four collaborators, respectively. Storm Stronghold Zone won its division, resulting in six contest winners for only four divisions.

  • Red House Zone by Ice - 6.04
  • Pipe Towers Zone by Fawfulfan - 8.19

September/October

Despite a weak turnout, all divisions but CTF in this contest had at least one very well received map. Uninspired Name Zone was submitted in an unfinished state at the last minute; among other defects, it can crash the game due to a lack of Match Starts for spectators. The Map With No Name proved rather controversial due to its reverse gravity gimmick, with votes spanning 0 to 7. obnoioxies mym litltle pnony refenrence znone[sic], which was entered as a deliberately awful joke map, fell only one vote shy of scoring 0.00, and prompted a rules change to ban intentionally bad entries henceforth.

Single Player division

  • Mario Land 1-1 by Simsmagic - 4.25
  • Chemical Facility Zone Act 1 by CoatRack - 8.30

November/December

Before this contest started, Mystic announced that the Circuit division would be discontinued afterwards, which prompted the unusually high number of 10 Circuit entries. However, most of these maps were considered to be of poor quality and dragged the contest down as a whole. The three other divisions, with few entries each, were all won by ZarroTsu.
