    I run the pick-ups over at teamfortress2fort.com and we're always looking for that next great comp map! We play an average of about 3 PUGs a day, so we got the people and the time, and best of all the exp. (we were the 1st PUGs to play resonance, yukon, and follower)

    What we are looking for:
    6v6 comp style 5CP maps ex. Granary, Well etc

    6v6 Gravelpit A/D Style (all we have is gpit)

    SINGLE STAGE PAYLOAD MAPS! Every night we play 9v9 or 10v10 Highlanders (1 of each class) on a payload map. Right now our rotation is pretty limited (badwater, halfacre, stovepipe, cashworks, swiftwater etc) so hopefully this motivates some mapmakers to finish those pl maps!

    What you get:
    6v6 playtest with a STV and/or can hang in Vent with us
    9v9/10v10 Highlander pl_map testing with above

    PM me or add on steam: b_myne

    Let me repeat, we will test 6v6 comp style maps, and single stage payload maps for Highlanders. Some argue 32 or 24 is a better way to test a map, I'll leave that for you to decide, but if you want a tight group that has tons of maptesting exp, hit us up.

    Yes, I would do a flythrough first to see if there was any obvious imbalances or something of that nature but yes we do take alphas.

    I used to spend almost all of my time hanging around the TF2F servers and forums, and I've got to attest to the quality of the players over there. If you want your maps to be tested by some of the most skilled players out there, pubbies or comp, you definitely couldn't do much better than the TF2F.

    I built icefield to be a 6v6 capable ctf map. It has football-esque mechanics instead of the normal boring variant. I may be interested in having you guys test it if you're willing to try something different.

    We did and the spawn seemed much too long. Also there was too many small exits when you attack C. It was very easy to have the whole defense stand on C and just spam all the tiny/chokey/spammy exits. Overall everyone liked it besides those issues. If they were fixed it easily beats G-pit, but we're waiting for b3

    Have you guys tried cp_silvertrail? It's a gp-styled map with alpine theme. I had it played by another PUG group and they seemed to like it. You can find a link to the thread in my sig.

    Will you guys be able to test all the new plr and push ctf maps because it is looking like regular gameday is not going to be enough.

    I would be amazed for you guys to have a quick run through on my map, pl_nuclear_a3 (soon to be updated).
    However it is only very early alpha and thus hasn't had much testing as of yet so ic an easily understand if its not applicable.

    I'd love to get cp_mudbath tested in competitive 6v6. It's a regular push/linear CP map.

    However, some warnings:
    - It's alpha with dev textures.
    - It was NOT built with competitive play in mind. What I'd want to get out of this test is any tips from your pros on how it would be more fun for them

    So, it's up to you whether it's too early.
