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

January/February

Then-current SRB2 version: v2.1.14

This contest's Match division had only one entry, securing its author an automatic win. In addition, the only two entries to the CTF division tied, leading to the first winning tie since May/June 2012.

The winner of the Single Player division, Quickman 2, was a total conversion mod designed to mimic the gameplay of MegaMari, a Touhou fangame based on Mega Man gameplay designs. The map was considered a dramatic improvement over its predecessor, being easier and more feature-complete, but was still criticized for a few difficulty issues. Shaped Mountainside Zone Act 1 was disqualified for not loading immediately when starting a new game. Regardless, those who reviewed it criticized it for having a difficult-to-navigate layout, and for making amateur mistakes such as placing score monitors directly in the map.

July/August

Then-current SRB2 version: v2.1.14

When voting started for this contest, it was announced the multiplayer divisions were cancelled for future contests until further notice, as the multiplayer divisions of the most recent contests were considered to be subpar. However, the OLDC received little attention following this, so the OLDC was placed on hiatus again until further notice due to a lack of entries, making this the last OLDC for v2.1. Sacred Woodland Zone was a remake of a level submitted to the May/June 2014 OLDC. While it again only ranked in the middle of the division, it was generally considered an improvement over its predecessor.
