    Why not just submit to an impromptu or site gameday when there are tons of people willing to play? Also, bots won't give you very good information on what you should change layout-wise.

    that was mainly a warning to players so they know
    also it helps to know how bots act on a map so i can make them not be annoying to my players

    i also dont know how to submit to impromptus

    What you just shared here is an IP address from a private, closed network. No one outside your home network can access this.

    You could technically port forward your local server to allow others to join, but it's a complex process and performance depends on your own hardware and the quality of your internet connection. I strongly suggest submitting your map to one of our testing events instead.

    Es no bueno, the server isn't responding for me. Must not have worked.

    I'm not the OP, but I'm new to mapping and was wondering about this.

    I'm trying to get my map tested, and apparently gamedays are the best way to do this, but is there any set schedule for them? They seem to be pretty few and far between...

    Gamedays happen a couple times a week, usually at weekends. A thread will go up a couple days in advance to submit maps to.
    Impromptus happen ~daily. There's a bot in the steam group chat that maps can be submitted to and when an impromptu happens it'll play the maps listed on the bot.

    Here's a thread explaining how to get maps tested, including gamedays. If you have any questions, you can PM me so as not to derail OP's thread.

    This is true, but if you hop on chat and submit your maps (through the bot) them we will impromptu test your map (imp) at some point. Most of the time there will be an imp every one or two days.
