    Submission Rules:
    Please use this format for submitting maps:

    Code:
    Map name: (provide the full filename, e.g. cp_example_a1)
    Author(s):
    Download: (TF2M or Dropbox downloads preferred)
    Notes: (Optional)
    
    • Your map must be fully playable.
    • Filename must be entirely in lowercase.
      • 'cp_example_a1', not 'CP_Example_A1' - capital letters break Linux servers.
    • Please repack your map before uploading.
      • I don't want to download a bunch of 50mb maps and neither does anybody else. I will also turn down Alpha maps that exceed 50mb regardless of if they're repacked or not.
    • One map per author.
    • MvM, Surf, Trade, MGE, etc. are not permitted.
      • Custom gamemodes are fine as long as they are "standard," i.e. they could be added to a server rotation without any special setup required.

    I reserve the right to reject any maps based on these rules.


    Other notes:
    • The test will be about 1 hour and 30 minutes, but may be longer or shorter depending on how many maps there are. This is up in the air, really.
    • By default, CP, PL and TC maps will be played for 30 minutes, Arena for 15 minutes, and every other gamemode will get 20 minutes.
    • I will skip maps when I think that they have gotten an adequate amount of testing to get through maps quicker. Maps with big issues like scaling and sightlines will get less playtime, as those kinds of issues take less time to diagnose.
    • It is not required for you to attend the gameday if you submit a map.
    If you have any questions, feel free to PM me on the forums or on Steam.

    Oh god finally!
    cp_strongboard_a1
    https://tf2maps.net/downloads/cp_strongboard.2886/
    This is a single stage AD map
    note: I will most likely not be in the gameday itself. I'll try to participate.
    IMPORTANT: If players have something to say, please encourage them to say it so that I can hear their true impressions. Also, if they have any questions about the map, please let them ask as if I am there. I might be able to learn something from the true impressions they get. In short: tell the players to pretend as if I am in the server just listening.

    ...I'll allow it. People on slower connections will take a while to join and the first round ends up having a smaller number of players, so it's in everyone's best interest to make alphas small in filesize.

    That version has already been played twice, and I think you know what's wrong with the map, so I didn't see much point in putting it in the test. Running it again could maybe provide more nuanced insight into problems with the map, but those will be irrelevant in any version where those more significant issues have been addressed.

    I hope that doesn't come off as mean; I just think it's legitimately in your best interest that you work on the issues you know about right now instead of looking for more feedback.

    The version was played only once, and I recently just remade mid, and I want some feedback on mid to determine what to change about it...

    Your post lists the map as _a9, which is the last version we tested. In the future, mark the appropriate version so I know that there's a new one.
