    So I noticed that most of the classes kinda have their own maps based off their backgrounds. The Demoman has Degroot Keep, The Medic has Rottenburg, ect. I was thinking of map ideas that would fit the other classes and I started with Scout. Scout loves baseball and I thought that the map theme that would fit scout best would be Baseball. But how do you make a Baseball tf2 map? I thought up a bunch of ideas but one of them I really liked. I don't know if this would be possible or if it would even be good but I thought that you could have 4 capture points just like baseball and if you manage to capture the first point, a briefcase will appear and a player must run the rest of the capture points (you wouldn't have to wait to capture the other 3 points, just touch and run). the defending team must track down and kill off the running team or diffuse their first capture attempts (kinda like getting a foul ball i guess?) let me know what you think, If this idea is ridiculous or could be improved? Thanks :)

    Definitely shouldn't take place on a baseball field, wayyyyy to open.

    It's perfectly possible to do - it's basically attack/defend CTF with a few changes - but I'd advise against setting the map in a baseball field.

    Gamemode idea might be good but baseball field as a map would be way too open

    I don't think the classes consciously have maps made for them. In fact I can't think of any others.

    The concept for this map is amazing, the gamemode is very unique and would definelty be one for the history books. But dont set the entire map in a baseball field, maybe a small open field for the intel or final cap.

    I think some of the farm-themed maps could be set in Texas, where I assume the Engineer hangs his hardhat (based on his very Texan accent), though I suppose he could as easily be from Oklahoma or New Mexico


    edit: Also, cool idea for a map. I would be interested in playing that if it was successful.

    Perhaps have a small amount of the map in the infield of the diamond, with the bleachers and outfield off limits, and have the rest in the locker-rooms/other inner rooms of the stadium?

    What about actually making it in a baseball field but... MEDIEVAL MODE!
    please don't

    Jokes aside, I'd like to see this gamemode become a thing

    Engineer is from texas, says so on the wiki. Also, only texans know how to say Dag Nabit Digit Dabit Dagit like he does.

    So what is the "ect"? I can't think of any official maps that go with the Pyro, Soldier, Heavy, Sniper (somebody made a decent map based on "Meet the Sniper"'s backgrounds a long time ago, but that's all that comes to mind), or Spy.

    Spy was 2fort, solider was granary, sniper i could argue dustbowl or thunder mountain, no heavy or pyro map though.

    Spy would arguably be Doublecross, since (1) that's what spies do and (2) the MtS board is in it.

    Just because the "Meet the" videos are set there? That's pretty loose.

    none of those maps were made with the characters in mind.

    a baseball stadium could make a totally legitimate map, just make the map take place inside of the stands and around the concession area/locker room area with the baseball field itself just background and skybox elements

    that being said, the idea seems needlessly complicated for a normal game of tf2, could be funny as some sort of custom gamemode with all scouts though
