 Unlike previous map contests the MotF contest is not a one-off - a new contest with a new challenge is posted every fortnight, as the name suggests.

 The second was in MotF 56 where [[offtopic:​Kaiphranos]] and [[offtopic:​Iserlohn]] both received 36 votes. Again they were given the option of map duel or fight to the death (in this case a hot air balloon rifle duel), and the former was chosen following Krall'​s apparent discovery that making people fight to the death is illegal.
