Why all the gimmicks?
The goal is to try to make more class combinations viable. Taking the weight off of the Engineer's shoulders can open the door for more dynamic class combinations. However, the Engineer is still viable for retaking otherwise lost areas. Flip and I playtested extensively, trying different combinations of bots and player lineups to ensure a balanced play experience (with some obvious exceptions).
For anyone interested in gd_summer. Read about its development!
This document is more focused on the gimmicks and wave design than the level design. But Hey, if you have time to kill. Give it a read!
