Alongside these celebration packages, we announced the 10th Anniversary Creative Competitions last week that includes track, car, and video creation contests. The winners of the contests will have their submissions presented at our celebratory LAN streaming event [aka LANniversary] on December 14, 2013. We invite you all to participate and celebrate the TrackMania community.

The Past 10 Years

Over the past 10 years, the TrackMania community has grown and evolved in many ways. Sites like Mania Exchange, Mania Park, and countless others host creation contests, competitions, and weekly events. They are also host to a hugemungous database of track creations, car models, and videos that represent just the tip of the iceberg of community creativity. The recently added Steam workshop has also been a great source of creative designs for a new audience of players. All of these have helped TrackMania grow in different and new ways over the past 10 years.

ingame-10years-video-comp

It is rare that a game lasts 10 years in this industry. Think about it, 10 years ago Ben Affleck was celebrating the success of acting in Gigli, YouTube definitely wasn’t a thing, and Matrix Revolutions unfortunately was a thing.  It is because of the members of the TrackMania and ManiaPlanet community that keep this game thriving.

Community members like forum moderator and passionate track creator, eyebo, has been a TrackMania-c since 2006. Another ManiaPlanet moderator, tcq, has been highly involved in competitions since 2004. Mikey, a passionate community member has hosted a very popular server called Madhouse for years.  Xymph and Slig have done amazing things for Dedimania. Peteypablo7 has been an extremely passionate leader on TrackMania Exchange. These community members and thousands of others have been built into the fabric of the TrackMania family.

Thank you all from the bottom of our fuel injected hearts. We hope you join us for the next 10 years.
