    Just saw this on there tonight and I'm sure some of you already know about it but I hope they fix it soon because an evil engi can ruin things for you team in a hurry.

    Near the middle right next to the CP is a small room with chikenwire fence. Obviously it doesn't appear that a nobuild was put in there and engi's build the teleporter exits in there and if you take it you get locked in. Of course everybody on the team takes it and gets stuck and we all have to "kill" in the console but by that time, the other team already has a huge advantage.

    The chicken wire is a displacement, and you can walk pass it from the backside, where you are "trapped"

    It's kinda old, And you do not need to do kill, just walk against it and you will like be pushed back, just do jump-crouch-w and that kinda stuff and you'll soon be through :p

    Arena? How the heck is the engy going to get both ends of the teleport up before everyone has run away and half of them have died? ...who will be around to teleport?

    Same in koth_sawmill, it's easy for an Engineer to build up a nest, but its even easier for a Pyro to edge it and destroy everything in there. It's not a huge deal and will get fixed eventually.
