Think we could get an offical announcment on the TFP steam page about phase 2? Maybe a "Come and test the maps" dedicated day/time? We have been playin them for awhile, but only in teams of 4 - 6, cause noone wants to try and populate the server :P

Ah yeah, that might be a good idea. Also due to horribleness we've prematurely removed cp_bathroom and replaced it with cp_toystore.

Not on topic perhaps, but not sure where I SHOULD post this.

Requesting that db heights be removed from the map rotation.


The newer version is an absolute piece of shit. BLU is guaranteed to win every single round provided they have at least ONE team member with half a brain. RED is guaranteed to spend every map struggling to keep sentries up when any good place one COULD be built has been completely removed.

The older version was nice. Slightly leaning toward RED, but easily winnable by both teams.

This new version is an absolute mockery in all forms. Never before have I seen a payload that was actually TOO linear to DEFEND.

Or at least revert it to the old version. The new one is horrible. Doesn't even look like Dustbowl anymore.

On another note, didn't Halfacre used to be on the servers, or I just imagining it?

The changes to the first stage are minimal. that I didn't mind so much.
It goes downhill from there. Rapidly.
Third stage bears no resemblance at all save for the areas directly by spawn. The third stage is arguably the worst, and is almost PURELY linear. I'd been trying to use the default cloak for once, and....needless to say, this is the ONLY Payload map I've ever found without a single place for a spy to hide that's even in VIEW of the entrance. I wound up literally crouching behind a crate hoping I wouldn't be seen, right by spawn.
(Sadly, I wasn't. o_o )
