    I'll just leave this here.

    KoTH map - the key idea is giving all 9 classes opportunities to have fun, and working a lot with the most beautiful feature of TF2: height differences.

    Map name may or may not be subject to change.

    Thanks to 42Pandas for useful feedback.

    This time I have absolutely no excuse not to participate - might as well get started straight away.

    The map features moving platforms, fat italian plumbers and a big boss fight towards the end with a giant mutant turtle.

    That dropdown is going to make capping the point the least fun thing in the world. There's no risk/reward for staying up there, just reward

    He's probably middle age, and hardly a ninja.


    Yeah, I'm a bit concerned that it might be a bit too powerful, except the fact that you're very exposed to snipers in that position. I will definitely pay attention to how it plays out, and probably do some tweaks to add some risk to the reward.

    Alright, playtesting has been successful and I will now proceed with detailing and finishing up the last balance issues.
