    Event Rules and Information (link)

    If there's something specific you want feedback on in your map, write so a line below the rest of your submission, and I'll try to announce it just before the round starts. (Eg: Do the respawn times feel fair?)

    For each gameday that I run, myself and some friends will run through the gameday maps afterwards and discuss the map on a mumble recording, eventually summarizing the discussion up in a ~5 minute piece. I'll then take that recording and put relevant background video from the gameday behind it, and put up on the tf2maps.net youtube page. The videos go up generally by the following Tuesday after the gameday. They are just meant for additional perspectives and feedback to help you get a better sense of how your map plays, so you can adjust things as needed. I'm doing this because if I were making a map and someone did this for me I would probably appreciate it. ;)

    I'd like all kinds of feedback - nitpicking or not - preferably in the thread because the feedback pages for all my maps are still broken somehow

    Not sure what I aim to find out with this test. People seemed to like the broken first version we played a few weeks ago (I've never been fast enough getting these posts out); I guess I just want to be sure they still think that now that it works the way it was supposed to.

    Yeah, gameday is full Nerdbot, but I can put your map and everyone else who didn't get into the 2 hours on afterwards to play.

    Also, gameday map pack uploaded.

    Remember that these videos are just perspectives of the maps. You should have an idea of how you want your map to play before any testing occurs, and if these perspectives go against your own then take them on board, listen to them, but you don't have to follow them exactly. I mention because many many people complain that feedback is awful at leading their map in any specific direction when it isn't really supposed to anyway. Also, the raw audio files from our discussions are in the descriptions, if you really want those.

    I won't be running a gameday this Saturday since I need time to work on my own maps, and we all should test more of the 2SS part 1 entries (which I will host an event for instead). If you need a map tested you can message an admin in the steam chat, and eventually it will get tested (generally that day).

    I'm sure we'll be playing plenty of maps Saturday, but I was wondering if you could squeeze my entry in at the beginning? Assuming the event will start at 5pm EST. Or just play my map some other time. I get off work at 5pm and it's the first Saturday I've been off that early in awhile, so I'd like to take advantage of the time to play maps that aren't mine because I might not have a lot of other time to judge the entries.
