It's been an incredible 2 years! This site has been a great place to discuss mapping and level design in general, and I'm grateful to all the mods and community members who've supported it so that I can in turn use it! I've made many many friends through tf2m, people I'll probably play with for many years to come. I wish you all luck in your endeavors til I return, have fun and pump out those contest maps! You all know who you are! I'm leaving for 4 months to study abroad, and as I had to work very hard to fund it I have sworn off most diversions like mapping to focus on the experience. I'll be retiring from mapping for at least that period and probably longer. The latest contest has really shown off how much our community members have grown over time, and although I started the contest off in mock confidence I am now really confident that we'll see a number of very pretty, well balanced and fun maps that will really outshine my own! However I must submit what I was able to get done, so check out my thread http://forums.tf2maps.net/showthread.php?p=136636 for the version of Wildfire I have just now submitted to the contest judges. Keep up the good work guys! Wish I could have contributed more in the past few months... So that's about it, <3 you all and hopefully I'll be able to check in once in awhile to see what's up I leave in 10 hours for the orient~~~~ Peace!
