    Well it is pretty damn lame to do MORE community maps just before the weekend, i wanted a meet, a new weapon, or OFFICIAL maps. Not that egypt looks bad or anything, just sorta not what people were expecting i guess.

    Wacky Races should have been the community map IMO.

    I'm not against community maps or anything, I think that this is epic fail. I was hoping for a Meet the... vid or something else.

    I'll be honest, you people REALLY overreacted. I mean, come on.

    Overreaction is the right word...

    I still think this update was bad, but not because of cp_egypt (ok, maybe a little? I dunno).

    The main reason I'm incredibly disappointed is that this means that the next two updates are likely to be the Force-A-Nature and the new mode...which means no Meet the Team video. That makes me sad.

    TBH most of the finished maps here aren't any better gameplay-wise than egypt...although I do enjoy a couple of the payload contest maps, but I guess they were all too new or unfinished to be included in this update.

    +1 for wacky racers :)

    So I'm guessing valve bought the art used in egypt so it will be accessible from hammer?

    Correction: One or two people overreacted, then one or two people overreacted to the overreactions, and the rest of us were trying to have a deeper conversation about the update between the cries of the more vocal minority.

    I don't really understand all the dissapointment. Egypt has a great style, looks very Tf2-ish, and those who say it doesn't look like it, it's because they can only see TF2 in deserts.

    Come one, what would have happened if they included an alpine community map before the Heavy update what would have people said?

    Also what about goldrush? is the most unbalanced map ever and is one of the most played atm (i personaly love it).

    Erm... I played Egypt on CSS, I think it was made for CSS... the map looks very (VERY) much alike.
    I think that CSS is CSS and TF2 is TF2.

    Valve got stunned by the environmental impact of the map, not because it was fun to play.

    They pay their artists way too much and save loads of $$ buying textures from custom mappers :)

    I dont like Egypt, I played it once, never played it again. Im not sure why. But this is a real dissapointment if you ask me. And I know valve only included this in their update because they want to have a new style/theme thats it.

    Also you can already download all the models and textures from interloopers. Not a big deal.

    I'm disappointed because 2 slots of the scout update are community maps. I wanted official maps or a new weapon or a "meet the" video before I waited 2 days for more info. I know this site is all about community maps, but if I posted this on the steam forums no-one would listen because there is like over 9000 people there.

    Most of you guys should stop bitching about stuff like this.

    1. It's free.
    2. If you don't like the map make a better one before you say it sucks. Certainly because you are here to map yourself and give positive input, oh and what heyo just pulled off is something I don't see much mappers here do.

    And for the love of god these 4chan things in the chat better stay at 4chan because lately the chat has been full of this crap.

    Shmitz also has a very good point about the community maps getting an update. This is very interesting and hopefull!
