    by David "GrimGriz" Wells

    Description
    Dust Tribute is a 3 CP map where BLU must bomb the CP's by using "smart bombs" (that look remarkably like intel from CTF maps). The bombs are located in the pickup trucks outside BLU spawn (but within their spawn area).

    In order to bomb the CPs, BLU must capture the control points and can only do so when their bomb carrier is on the point. Bombs do not return to the pickup trucks, so the BLU team is encouraged to protect their bomb carrier.

    Why are you using the stock locked icons?

    Because I always find myself hauling ass to squeeze in as many of the things I want to as I can before the gameday deadline. The map will probably change a couple more times before I get a fresh overview for the icons...I'll probably do custom blu-owned locked at that point.

    So...after watching the sourceTV replay of a11...wow. Way to be constructive fellas. The first round made me think the map was impossible for blue. The second round just proved it's all about the teams.

    Now, I know a lot of you don't like the map. Well, I have some bad news. I'm going to finish it, even if it's just a prettied up version of what you just played. So...if you could give some advice to make it more playable rather than just spouting memes...that'd be great.

    To the nice people: I'm thinking of ditching the cave to B from blue spawn. That will give just the standard dust entrances, which I originally worried were too bottlenecky...but based on spectating the demos, blue has a pretty hard time of sticking together with so many routes to choose from... and I'm thinking narrowing that down to 2 might help blue function better.

    I'm also thinking of cutting blu's initial spawn time down and reducing the cap rewards slightly...so that they start spawning faster, but end up spawning at the same rate as now.

    I have no clue what to do with point C...so any ideas would be appreciated.
