    dustbowl's main problem is that it's so focused on choke points that it's difficult for blue team to advance to the second point without using an uber on any other stage than the first.

    Dustbowls main problem is that it's a TFC map and not a TF2 map.

    If you want to make a good remake of it, i suggest you take any and all creative liberties required to fix the layout, rather than making a faithful version of the map with a new coat of paint.

    Yeah TFC had grenades for every class making dealing with defenders a lot easier.

    so corners in the map were used more for offense?

    Since defenses like sentries could be dealt with easier, areas where made better for defenders by having a lot of choke points. TF2 doesn't have grenades causing defenders to be able to hold the choke points much better than before.

    so I suspect simply making corridors bigger would solve the problem to some degree

    Why not just make a new original map

    Because I lack creativity and diversity of thought.

    Or I just like the idea of remaking a map.

    You know, I've been kind of having thoughts about making a Halloween Dustbowl for this year. Especially since I've made previous design changes to a version I ported to another gamemode last year. But I guess I'll have to pick another map now.

    Also Dustbowl was more built in mind of casual/pubbing rather than 6s or highlander.
