    yo guys, I had 2 ideas for some here they are.

    1. a market place area with no game-mode for trading, little stalls or booth. Go around and look for trades, some areas for combat to pass the time. Something like Mario kart, neo Tokyo, or harbl hotel. mite b cool, or mabye useless (or gimmicky) but it sounds fun to me.

    2. a 5 cp map where 90% percent of it is under water, with little pockets of air. seems like it could turn out being cool.

    any comments or ideas would be appreciated.

    An idle map designed for trading with strangers would actually be kinda novel. But just saying an idle map might have benefits makes my skin crawl.

    An under water map would be unbalanced and probably terrible to play. Snipers wouldn't be able to shoot and pyros would be useless.

    Not to mention, in an underwater map, Demoman weapons would move exceedingly slow and stop short often.

    I understand the balance issues but still it seems like it would be interesting.

    A map mostly underwater would be so slow to play. I don't think it would be enjoyed.
