    Aight folks, here's the new setup. I've been reading through the comments and suggestions in this thread; http://forums.tf2maps.net/showthread.php?t=5362 So here is what we're going to try this time;

    Map Submission Structure (in this order):
    Map Name (ex. ctf_mycoolmap_b2 )
    Link to map download
    *downloads from TF2maps.net preferred but not required.
    Optional: Link to discussion thread.
    Optional: Available time + time zone. Use sparingly, only if you're really pressed for time this weekend.

    Submission Rules:
    -Please submit all maps by 4 PM CST on Friday
    -Try to include the .bz2 as well. It's not required, but would be a big help.
    -The map must be playable. By this I mean working caps & doors, proper clipping etc. The purpose of gameday is to help authors refine their designs, not catch newbie bugs. It's not hard to figure out if your cps are working or not; we have tutorials, a main forum, and the Steam chat.
    -The default time for maps will be 30min. If you think that whatever you're trying to test for the map can be figured out in less time, then you probly don't need a play test just yet.
    -45min. will available upon request for maps in the final stages.
    -Ingame test time will be subject to admin discretion. If players can critique the whole map in 5min. b/c it's too small/imbalanced/etc., then it's over.

    Gameday Structure:
    The maps will be Saturday/Sunday morning and afternoon, as before. If there's only a few entries (not likely), the maps will go for both days, w/ the cycle reversed on Sunday. Given our usual number of entries, the maps will first be split across the days. You will have 1 day, not both. Even the most stalwart and well-meaning of us get tired/bored eventually. In the case where the number of maps exceeds 4.5 hours in 1 day, we'll be using multiple servers. When this happens, our various partners and affiliates can provide some warm bodies as needed, so we shouldn't be stuck w/ 2 servers of 10 people each. *An official TF2M European server will be available soon.*

    Event will begin at:

    Central European: 6:00PM
    UK: 5:00PM
    Eastern: 12:00PM
    Central: 11:00AM
    Mountain: 10:00AM
    Western: 9:00AM


    Event will take place at:
    US TF2Maps.net #1 8.6.3.232:27015
    Saturday February 28

    Yeah, I just noticed how far away we are from 2/28. I'm guessing the Friday you're talking about is the 27the and not tomorrow I-D?

    This gameday is going to take place in a week from now, so it seems logical that Friday means the coming Friday, not yesterday.

    I will be unavailable on Sunday, so if this can go sometime Saturday that'd be wonderful. Otherwise I think Mangy will be around.

    This is the final Blue defense round only, containing significant changes to the boat. I'm looking for feedback on whether the changes improve the gameplay of the round and bring it more on par with Red's final defense round.
