    Well a territory control map, like Hydro, but instead of 4 areas (or 6 if you count the edges), it would be much bigger grid, like 16 areas big in a grid. This wouldn't run on my comp, so the areas would have to be smaller than normal.

    Each area would be by a different mapper, in collaboration with the mapper who own the nearby areas. If that would be too massive, then a 9 square would be cool or a normal 4 square but with a competition with several entries and the best 4 are edited and put on.

    8 cp limit hardcoded into TF2.

    It will mess up the tc_ mechanism (i've toyed with this when making multi round arena)

    I'd like to see a multi-staged LINEAR cp map, could be interesting.

    Someone needs to pop an email to VALVe to ask for support for more CPs in a map. Because this sounds like an awesome idea.

    Unless its one of those pesky engine limitations.

    I don't think it's a engine limitation, more like optimization server-side

    Technically, it could be done manually with a fake CP system made out of logic entities rather than the TF2 gametype ones.

    yep, you could use 8 CP per stage if you would want.
