    So, we don't really make enough maps anymore to justify having two map test gamedays, so I'm thinkin about starting a bi-weekly event where we play through older maps that were enjoyable, but never really get played anymore.

    Popularity check~

    Feel free to throw out map suggestions too, just try to refrain from excessively gimmicky stuff. Stuff like pl_rainbowroad is acceptable, 2fort upside down isn't. (also koth is fine too, but I'd probably limit it, since we're swamped with koth maps right now and it's getting tiring really fast)

    list of stuff so far:
    premuda
    wiretap
    vector
    photic
    wildfire

    ALSO THE THREAD TITLE IS A JOKE

    Maybe.

    But I'd like Corrode in there if this becomes a thing.

    I'm fed up of koth as well and sick of seeing maps that don't contribute anything new to the tf2 experience but I answered no because I still think it is possible to come up with a relevant koth map that's worthwhile to play (even if I know very few mappers will make the most of this opportunity)

    Just to clarify, the thread title is a joke.

    I support this idea.

    I don't remember too many old maps from the good ol' days but we should at least play cp_glacier and cp_furnace.

    Additionally, even though the title is a joke, I don't think koth maps are too much of a problem but I sure think people should start making other things. Would be nice to see some different ideas once in awhile.

    Do the old maps need to be in at least beta for this rotation?

    Also some suggestions:
    PL_Angkor
    pl_clifftop

    I would like to nominate dom_canalzone, cp_standin and, of course, cp_frozen (which I'm seriously thinking of adopting).

    having missed the "good old days" completely thanks to only discovering tf2 in 2012, i'd be down for this.

    *quietly scraps koth map ideas*

    Related to playing custom maps that haven't been seen in awhile, I would love to play a random entry from the art pass contest every so often.

    So many amazing submissions that never got playtime once youme's and 3dnj's version went official.

    splitcap was such a cool idea but then the site rollback erased it and its author from existance
