Ah, 2018. What a year! Some new mods got released, many speedrunners got to show their stuff in MBP WRR3, and level creators around the globe had created more than 130 custom levels! 2018 will sure be a year to remember. But that begs the question. Which custom level made this year was the best? It's time to pick up on an old tradition and vote on which level is the Level of the Year!


Here's a Google Form with the candidates: goo.gl/forms/dVEurV8ItW7E4qAA2

Right now we are voting for our nominees. That means that after this voting session, there will be another round to vote between the top five levels of this round.

Before you submit your vote, please play the levels in the selection. Attempt to avoid bias and choose levels you think are genuinely fun to play. Most importantly, please identify who you are in the form. This is to prevent double votes, trolls, etc.


Don't see a specific level in the list? It may be from one of the following reasons.

We don't accept meme levels. They're good for a quick laugh or two, however the quality of professionalism from actual levels is quite low. For this reason, we decided to remove all meme levels from the selection (also so we can have a shorter, easier list to read). This includes some absolutely legendary levels such as Black Diamond (Abridged), Blue Zenith V2, and, unfortunately, super duper duper there and back again. Perhaps we'll have one day where we celebrate all meme levels but that won't be today.

Custom levels made by, as well as votes from, banned users are automatically rejected from the selection. It's simple. This is a community vote. You're not part of the community, you or your levels are not part of the vote. From the top of my head, the only person who has made levels in 2018 and falls under this category is probably PowerJohn, so, if he's reading this uhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh maybe don't get banned...?

Or, it could just be that I have missed it. Yeah, despite the forum's accessibility, it's rather difficult to track the locations of some custom levels. Hopefully, HiGuy's CLA site will fix that once it give us the ability to submit our own custom levels. So if you see a custom level that has been made in 2018 but isn't on this list, please let me know.


Currently there's no deadline. Feel free to ask me any questions you have. Other than that, happy voting and may the best level win!

Time for the results!

I would like to give a big thanks for everyone who took their time to vote. I hope that everyone here did their best in attempting to submit fair, unbiased ratings for the listed levels. Here are the scores for the top 20 levels, ordered from lowest to greatest and rounded to three decimal places.


20. Wrap Zone by hPerks - (1 + 3 + 3 + 3 + 3 + 4 + 4 + 4 + 4 + 4 + 4 + 4 + 5 + 5 + 5) / 15 = 3.733

18. Bubblegum Blitz by Endy - (2 + 2 + 3 + 4 + 4 + 4 + 4 + 4 + 4 + 4 + 4 + 5 + 5) / 13 = 3.769

17. Firing Upwards by RandomityGuy - (2 + 3 + 3 + 4 + 4 + 4 + 4 + 4 + 5 + 5) / 10 = 3.8

16. Specific Gravity by hPerks - (2 + 3 + 3 + 3 + 3 + 4 + 5 + 5 + 5 + 5) / 10 = 3.8

15. Collector's Cube by MikeSan - (3 + 3 + 3 + 3 + 3 + 4 + 4 + 4 + 5 + 5 + 5) / 11 = 3.818

6. Frost Ravine by Nockess - (3 + 3 + 3 + 3 + 3 + 4 + 4 + 5 + 5 + 5 + 5 + 5 + 5) / 13 = 4.076


And here are the top 5 levels!

1. Four Seasons Circuit by Kurt - (3 + 3 + 4 + 4 + 4 + 4 + 5 + 5 + 5 + 5 + 5 + 5 + 5 + 5) / 14 = 4.428



Phew! There! That's all of them! But the competition isn't over yet! These five levels serve as our nominees for the final vote. We must do another vote so we can truly decide which one deserves the title of "Level of the Year 2018" ...once and for all!
