    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

    Saturday, U.S. TF2Maps #1 8.6.3.232:27015

    Times are listed in Central Standard


    Sunday, U.S. TF2Maps #1 8.6.3.232:27015

    Times are listed in Central Standard

    I think everyone prefers Saturday, and if I don't get a Saturday slot because I didn't state the obvious, I'll be mildly irritated. (of course, that's my usual state :) )
