    Original idea by Muddy. Huge thanks to BigfootBeto and everyone else who contributed to the maplist!


    Every map starts from somewhere. Iterative design gave Official and Featured maps their polish. All your favorite maps used to be terrible!

    I've scoured the internet to find a total of 57 early versions of Official and Featured maps.

    That's a ton! We couldn't possibly get through them all in the span of a Gameday. So I've devised a solution.


    --> Vote for what maps should be played here! <--
    We'll play 5 Official maps and 5 Featured maps over the course of this Gameday. View the in-progress voting results here.




    Here's the full map pack download.


    When:
    Saturday 16th of December @ 4pm GMT - 11am EST (Calculate other timezones here)

    Where:
    TF2Maps US Server

    This is awesome!

    Will we be alternating between Featured and Official maps, or will we do all of one category before the other?

    I think we'll be doing the Official maps first, and then the Featured maps afterwards. I still haven't made my mind up, though.

    After voting closes tonight, I'll finalize the playtest order, and post a download containing only the maps we'll be playing.

    Another important note:

    Anyone is welcome to pick up this concept for a Gameday in the future. Remember that these maps have been gathered for such an event.

    Great idea! Would love to see the Alphas of Banana Bay or even Valve Maps like Upward or 2fort as alphas.

    Alphas for Banana Bays is available! The map used to be named Keystone. A2 is in the provided map pack, and A3 can be downloaded from this map page.
