    Haha! Boo! Gotcha! You thought there wouldn't be an April Fools' event? Too bad! There is! And now you are the April Fool! Next Saturday, a week from the publishing of this hastily-written cry for help from the dank recesses of the Staff Cave I've found myself in, you too can take part in the April Fools' Gameday!

    [​IMG]

    The April Fools' Gameday will host a slew of the greatest goofs and gags of the mapping community - chosen by you, the mapping community! For up to six hours of uninterrupted gameplay, players can join both the US and EU servers to take part in the event. Both servers will be running through the map selection, the only difference will be the staff hosting the events and the ping you choose to endure!

    [​IMG]

    TF2Maps.net US Server - Dallas, Texas, United States - 66.150.214.251:27015
    TF2Maps.net EU Server - Frankfurt, Germany - 31.186.251.51:27015
    1PM CDT - Convert to your timezone here.

    In a Private Message to @Void, submit the map you wish to see in the gameday. The map you submit does not need to be your own. Staff will determine which maps will make the cut to fit in the allotted time, or if any edits need to be made due to technical difficulties. Due to the nature of the servers running the gameday, Mann vs. Machine maps will not be accepted.

    You have until 10am CDT on April Fools' Day, 4 hours before the event, to submit your map.

    You can now download the pack ahead of time to make things easier for you!

    1. Just because it's April Fools' Day, it does not mean you get to act like an April Fool. Any poor behavior or malicious intentions will be dealt with swiftly. We're all here to have fun, and if anyone makes anyone else feel anything other than welcome and comfortable, they will face the regular consequences upheld by the server rules.

    2. Don't abuse the RTV system with the intent of getting to a map you submitted faster. All maps will be treated equally, even if they're joke maps. A pre-screening of the maps will confirm whether or not there are any technical difficulties to prevent RTV'ing for such issues.

    3. Please keep maps with heavy visual effects such as flashing lights to a minimum. While we can accept a few, we don't want to make them a large part of the event. We hope to involve as many players as we can, and making sure we don't harm any players with epilepsy or similar afflictions is a top priority. Again, the pre-screening will come in to play here to make sure any warnings for maps that have these effects are clear and concise.

    4. Similarly, please make sure your maps are tasteful jokes. Offensive maps for the sake of being offensive will not be accepted, even if it contains a minute amount of offensive content. This is merely a safety concern to make sure everyone has fun.

    5. Obey the hosts of the event. Staff will be hosting the event on both servers, and if you have VIP privileges, please do not override any commands the hosts set.

    6. Have fun. Or else.

    If you have any other questions, don't be afraid to ask!

    I haven't even played Overwatch, don't @ me about the bastardization of the imagery.

    Are the seemingly-OW-like pictures part of the joke?

    Alright. Is it a standalone reference, not a part of anything? Or am I being paranoid-ish?

    Sure, why not. It'll all come down to what is chosen for the allotted time in the end.

    Reference?

    I'm more concerned about the fact the intel appears to have been replaced with a truck.

    Do we carry that, or drive it?

    What's the issue? Don't you carry your truck to work like everybody else?
