billiards_b5 Billiards Beta 5 This is the fifth public beta of Billiards, the new sports map for Team Fortress 2! It's a new twist on team ball-oriented game play. This is an actual game of billiards. Each team must shoot, hit, or blast their color's balls into the pockets before the other team does the same. Don't fall into the pockets! Also, be cautious of the 8-ball... it looks a bit menacing... __________________________________________________________ NEW In Beta 5! Change Log: - Sniper rifle now actually removed for good. - Graphical alterations of the glass in the light fixture. Now looks better. - Dynamic visual scoring system.
