    Everyone loves remote control toys. But the problem with most of them is, unless you manage to remote control one directly down someone's throat, they're pretty useless as weapons. But what if we were to tell you that we fixed that obvious design flaw?

    I knew it!

    Some noticable icons:

    looks as if the engy will play his guitar as a taunt and a sniping sentry?

    Probably no range limit on the wrangler-sentry so you can snipe people yourself.

    I wondered when someone was going to make an assault-ish map that relies on going upwards. Never thought it'd be Valve, though, and I especially never thought they'd call it that. I guess all the good names really have been used up by custom mappers.

    Also, I see what that special kill icon was for, now.

    I love the picture of 2fort from TFC. xD

    Something tells me, however, that a wranglered sentry with a second engi behind it spanking it back to full hp would be difficult to take down.

    Spies. This thing is immensely spy "friendly." Stab the one controlling it, sap the sentry, stab the guy healing it. I do not think it'll be too much of a problem.

    This will only be the fourth official PL map (fifth counting Pipeline).

    Well, except with the Wrangler, an Engie could have a sentry fire at a disguised spy.

    I rather like (love) PL maps. :S

    It's sort of assumed that the one controlling the sentry is dead at that point (because the spy sneaked behind him and killed him, as that's what spies do. :p)

    You just have to kill the engy controlling it and it'll be easy to take down...

    Taking a sentry out with a engi nearby takes skill, taking a sentry out with an engi and defenders nearby takes even more skill. Taking a sentry and an engi out with a second engi and sentry, let alone additional defenders takes even more skill.

    I'm not saying it's impossible... But it will deffinately be interesting.

    I don't think it'll be too bad. Once the engie is dead that was controlling the sentry, it's out of commission for a few seconds anyway, which is plenty for offense or the offending spy to kill the sentry or any person attempting to defend it.

    But the walls are so empty, and the skybox looks like the good old sky_tf_004 one or whatever it's called... Oh well, Payload maps are always awesome so it shouldnt be a problem :p
