    regardless, i still am voting for loc's map, because it's still fun to play.
    the concept is solid, the execution is pretty decent too. the issue with thebridge isn't gamebreaking, and whilst the new layout looks superior, i don't think that the maps overall enjoyment factor would be dramatically changed by it.

    edit: also to shed some light on how the versions prob got mixed up, i think it's because it takes a while for the server to update or something after you upload a map here. i had the same problem with mine when i uploaded a test version, found something broken, and re-uploaded with the same name. when it got uploaded to the tf2 servers thuogh the old broken version was the one that ended up there.

    in future, if you have only 10 or less minutes left, make a new submission when you upload + change the name of the map to be extra certain.

    regarding the map pack, i think most (if not all) people testing on the tf2maps servers have been DLing direct from in the game, as the maps aren't that huge, and it's simply just more convenient to let tf2 DL and place the map in the maps directory for you.

    it was a lot easier to get through them when no one had played any yet. i got most of my feedbacking out of the 1st couple of days. now the maps are getting slightly polarised between the few that 1 or 2 ppl have yet to play and the few that people want to play again becaus ethey enjoyed them.
    (although granted, i've still got another 5-6 i've yet to play myself)

    also, maybe some of the lists people have given are "pending other maps that i like more" and they haven't played everything single map themselves

    Yeah, the first day when they were just doing them in the order they were submitted I played almost half of them. Now it's gotten all mixed up, and people are making requests. It's gotten very confusing.

    we should have a number of fixed events where we play 6 of the maps per event or something... maybe?

    We're using the wrong thread, YM, Ezekel :p

    Why don't we make a thread where everyone can list the maps they haven't played yet or want to play. Then we can make mapping events based on the least played maps.

    this is still contest discussion, and since frozen nuked the prelim thread I'd say this is as good a place as any.

    5 more hours of TF2, totally drained. but on the bright side, only 4 maps left to play!
    Ritz, Trotim, Prestige and Tomhoen. though I'm told Ritz' is broken so it wont be played :/

    Will be up for playing again tomorrow evening, just like this evening

    Ritz isn't broken, but (Sorry about this ritz) the spawns are very open and INCREDIBLY campable.... if the spawns were adjusted the map would be better. maybe you are thinking about Randaalfs map?

    If you need someone to code up a static webpage, I can help with that.

    If you don't look real close, the scribbles look sorta like arabic or some such mid-eastern language. :p
