    What are the maps in the back of the Soldier and Demo update pages?
    Looks to me like Aerospace, and HAARP, but Im not sure. Any ideas/people who know?

    You're all wrong, valve have two maps coming this update (of their own) and only one community one.

    Also. they don't use community maps for their own backgrounds.

    Interesting, Youme, since your so well informed, could you tell us which community map they are adding?

    OR is that a trade secret :p

    Well, if you look at their previous updates, you can confirm what Youme is saying is true.

    It looked so much like Cashworks to me at first, but I'll take an original alpine map any day.

    Looking forward to seeing what's up.

    I'm hoping for another official snow map. A snow payload. Or a snow 5 CP.

    I would like to see a new style of map, along with a new game mode, or take off on a game mode.

    If you notice to the left of the Soldiers background, there is a speaker thingy that appears to be half inside the rock...c'mon Valve. If that is a community map, you should look around what map you think it is and try and spot that speaker.

    Also any Red Dwarf fans here? Note the Arnold Judas (Rimmer) in the demoman update

    Well if you also look at previous updates, you'll find that maps like pipeline were delayed. So for all we know the maps "coming" out could be in quite some time from now...

    Oh god, I love Red Dwarf!
    "I AM NOT the lowest rank on this ship! The Mice are"
    "They all say to me: 'YES MR LISTER SIR!' "

    EDIT: And to youme, Valve does use community maps in their backround: http://www.teamfortress.com/sniper_vs_spy/english.htm
    You should know since it is even your map!

    That wasn't even a 'proper' page. They threw that in after the update was released.

    Weren't they going to add the winners of that contest as official maps or am I sadly mistaken?

    Where did you get this idea from?

    (assuming you're talking about the ctf vs plr comp)
    No maps are going official as a result of the competition.

    Thats the last time I ask my friend nugs about the tf2 blog updates. Though that would have been a good idea on valves part. Let people vote for the next new maps.
