    cp_birdwatch - 5cp map with strong verticality

    This map uses the 5CP gamemode. The (lightly) birdhouse-inspired geometry features high verticality and deep flanks.

    Unorthodox features of note:
    • Badlands-style forward resupply
    • Non-standard round timer settings
    I have played TF2 for thousands of hours, and fiddled with .bsp map editors for at least another thousand. That being said, this is the first map I've ever taken to playtesting in TF2.

    I promise I'll try to address some of the sightlines in the next update;
    I haven't seen them be as relevant in testing/gameplay as other problems.
