    Please Read:
    Some of the earlier versions of this map are Icarus's archived .bsps and are therefore not packed and so will conflict with any version you still have lying around your /maps/ folder from back in the day. I noted on the maps which may have this issue, if you have any of said versions floating around please send them my way and I'l use that instead and eliminate as many of the unpacked ones as possible.

    TF2Maps.net Official Server: 70.42.74.31:27015

    Most of us here have been in many a cp_petrol endurance test, now we're having one with all the different versions combined! Only going to play one round in each version so dont winge when we switch maps before you get to attack or defend,

    Aha! At last, my habit of hanging on to outdated versions of community maps is vindicated!

    ...Sort of. I have A4 and A7, no idea if they're the packed ones or not. Where shall I send them?

    It's been a long time since I last played TF2. I suppose I'll drop in for the entire event as well.

    I don't know if I'm man enough though.

    About 3 months ago I cleaned out my maps folder of old alpha maps that I wouldn't need again.

    I deleted probably 15 versions of Petrol.

    None of the ones I have left are the ones you need.

    It's called the Recycle Bin. If you cleared that out, you're silly.

    It started pretty good, almost full. Then for the record by cp_petrol_a10 there were 10/24 players left on the server, right now on cp_petrol_a14 there are 2/24. Yeah after around 50% of the fun event done everyone left. Only 12 more maps to go!

    No offense but it was predictable this event wouldn't stay alive for the full duration. Plus you can still "have fun" while testing maps as well you know?

    Alright then, if you say so, geez

    Point is the event wasn't very successful, which isn't totally your fault, but still it'd help to think about why and keep it in mind for next time

    I can certainly think of worse uses of our server during "downtime". Still pretty disappointing considering how long our last Petrol endurance event thing dragged on for.

    From this I'm getting the impression that people are just getting tired of Petrol by this point and whoever's supposed to be finishing it now should just get on that already.

    There were no prizes. There have to be prizes.

    I'm sure it can't have helped that you were stopping to download a new map every ten minutes without actually getting a new map to break up the gameplay.

    That's what the zip file was for.

    Yeah, but people without the zip file, don't have the zip file.
