    Egypt doesn't fit the description.

    I'd say it sounds like a swamp more than a jungle.

    ITT we learn that L4D2 is actually Team Fortress 3.

    I knew it had nothing to do with Valve and that it would most certainly not be Egypt-related, I was just joking! I'm sorry if that didn't seem obvious enough.

    Seconded.

    Also, in related news, can I make an account for the Sniper to advertise my map?

    It's fine that they're advertising the map with the soldier. I mean it's not breaking any rules or anything.

    But once I see this map I am automatically going to hate it out of spite. Spite for being like the snotty rich-kid at school that thinks he's the shit. You know what rich kid? I'm not excited that you stepped into the room. Stop telling me about it.

    edit: wow I've got some hate today.

    Can't help but laugh at half the comments here.

    I'd think it was obvious! D: Apparantly it's not!

    I agree with spud and muffin man. This kind of secretive, elitist attitude does no good for the community, it only ignites bitching.

    lol I don't think this is some kind of horrible thing destroying the community. I just think it's kind of dumb.

    EDIT:

    This entire thread is fail. I rant for awhile below, but I re-read the edited post. LEAVE THE SOLDIER ACCOUNT alone.

    EDIT EDIT: Oh and you lost a customer.

    Spud and Muffinman are right...

    First off, The Soldier is Valve's domain. IFF a TF2Maps.net account member has been posting under that moniker without Valve's support then that really needs to stop. There are a lot of assumptions made when a post is made under that account, so I wouldn't go there. Some assumptions include OFFICIAL custom models, textures, and a new map.

    If that's the case then AWESOME and I can't wait!

    If this is a 100% community thing then there really isn't an excellent track record (sorry there really isn't) that would warrant a secretive Valve-like announcement.

    The only reason that this set off my suspicions is the fact that the advert has "TF2Maps.net" as a division of the TF Industries. If it's really the inside of a whale then please... this tileset isn't really a new "environment" It's a new theme map.

    I thought the "TF2Maps.net" bit in very light text was sort of a giveaway it wasn't something being passed on from Valve... [Deleted]

    Edit: Ah, it's one result, and it's a different thread than this one which I already saw... Hrm. Shouldn't there be two results for "Posts by this user"? Meh.

    Spud, Schmoe, and Muffinman are all being total bitches.

    COME ON, whatever it is, it's free, and if they managed to convince boojum to use the soldier (Boojum runs the soldier after all! NOT VALVE.), then it's not going to be anything bad.

    Besides, you guys are just being whiny bitches, as if you don't get this attention or some shit. Trust me, this thing is worth the wait :D

    That may be true. But it's such an easy target to make fun of, no matter how good it ends up being.

    "Do you know how cool my map is? It's so cool. Look at this teaser for it. My map will ridiculously cool. Ask me how cool it is - it's so fucking cool."

    Do you guys seriously think we'd use the class users to post just a single guy's map?

    Seriously guys, get a clue... This is bigger than just a single map, or even two, or three. we've been working on it for some time and its something that will be big.

    /dispels concerns its just one lucky tosser having his map bigged up.

    Edit: incase i didn't make myself clear

    THIS IS NOT ONE SINGLE MAP! STOP BEING RETARDS

    Of course I'm a total bitch. I'm just trying to tell you how I feel about this "I'm so important" type of announcements, so I expect people to disagree and to be angry with me.

    EDIT: Ninja'd.

    EDIT: Okay, Youme, if you say so that's less of a problem for me. The problem is, it wasn't very clear, so it was very easy to assume that someone with access to the Soldier account just wanted some attention for their map/other project. I'm going to shut up until I have some other reason to complain/be excited.
