    So, i was thinking, they have bball, baseball, dodgeball, volleyball, and soccer maps, why not a football map?

    Idea for map: 2 teams try to get the football (which is currently the intelligence, i am trying to get a football model instead) to the opponents side of the field.

    Setting: NFL Stadium, between the Dodgers (even though they are a baseball team) and the Giants. (If you do not get this, go to a different website. now.)

    Melee only.
    You can only choose between scout and heavy (Maybe medic, haven't decided yet.)


    So. yeah, i know, its a gimicky map, so what? it still should be fun :D

    Opinions?

    Even in gimmicky maps, stick to tf2 textures...

    Otherwise, probably to easy to score, I'd have no idea, don't really play maps like this much

    Silly Americans calling a game where you 99,99% of the time use your hands football, and then a game where you only use your feet when the ball is in play for soccer. Pffft...

    You can use both player on each team yea? Scout vs Heavy sound easy for the scout, at least when they get the ball.

    Restricting players to scout or heavy is silly. heavy hasnt got the movement, and at melee only wont be able to do anything to a picked up flag.

    otherwise though, everyone will go sniper since it's just a field

    Yep. my thoughts exactly
    and both teams would have the ability to be either scout, heavy, or medic, so it would still be pretty balanced.

    My ORIGINAL thought was just having heavies, and have a hat mod so all of them get the football helmets XD but i figured the game would run too slow (And what about the people who don't like playing heavy.)

    As for the textures....They were just the closest i could find atm for the football field. Ill probly make my own later on.

    So, Should i change the teams to RED/BLU or leave it as dodgers vs giants?

    Provided it's melee only, snipers shouldn't be a problem. I like the idea of class restrictions, but I think taking it further so that only one or two classes can take the football (definitely not scout) would be a good addition to the gametype.

    When Yam released ctf_rugby, we got a huge problem with Scout and sniper, the first were ending the game too fast, the second were completly dominating the field. Class restrict is necessary, but it's a shame to limit only too scout and heavy, the map played well with a (restricted) full class team and maintaining a defense perimeter with two inge near the goal line is so much more fun than just rushing the line with scout.

    its not really football-like, but how about a bulletproof glass that starts through the middle of the map so both teams have a minute or so to set up a defense. (With engineers available of course, maybe demomen, soldiers, spy's...pretty much all but sniper) This would make the map last longer, while letting people enjoy more classes.
