    i know about demos but i would like to be on the map myself to truly get what needs to be changed!
    so is there a way i can know when my map will be tested?


    p.s. go see my new map!https://tf2maps.net/downloads/power-feud.2616/

    Do you mean when impromptu tests will happen? Unfortunately, they are impromptu, so you can't tell when they will happen. If you keep Steam open, you'll get a notification when one starts though!

    Join when you get the imp announcement, if your map is on the bot it should be played.
    Or hang around in the chat :)

    If you are unwilling or unable to wait around in chat for Impromptu tests, Gamedays are a great alternative. There's usually one or so a week, and signing up can get you a specific time slot when your map will be played. Threads for gamedays are usually posted a day before they happen, and the map list/time slot allocations are usually posted a couple hours before the gameday is scheduled to begin (If I recall correctly; I haven't signed up for one in a while).
