    Hi, maybe you know that there is a map called cp_cloak in TF2, nobody knows why Valve made this ''joke'' map, but now im asking, its stupid this gamemode?

    I mean, this is a new gamemode that is exclusive in this map, its like koth you only need to capture the control point for win, the control point takes more time to cap, will be possible make a playble map with this gamemode?

    (Admin note: Changed thread name to something a bit more appropriate of its purpose)

    The gamemode isn't that great honestly. It'll either have really short rounds or games that drag on for way too long. It'd be no great loss if we all ignored it.

    As far as we the tf2 community knows, this map is an inner test map Valve accidentaly released with the steampipe update, alongside background001 (or a map with a similar name). They both were never meant to be played, and are a mistake Valve never bothered to fix.

    People have tried it. It's not great. It's not an "official" gamemode any more than item_test so don't do it.

    As far as I know cp_cloak was created to test some new technologies and etc. It also has a leak which I am sure is another part of the test.

    Well, ultimately it's up to you if you want to try it, but don't be surprised when literally nobody likes it

    it literally only existed to test cloak mechanics, the gamemode is not designed for fun and would in fact be Very Very Not Fun
