    there are 4 CPs laid out in a square, all unlock (they can never lock)... capping a point and holding it will give one point every 30 seconds... the objective is to be the first team with 100 points... (that is basically a DOM map)... additionally in the very center of the map is an intelligence which either team can cap, it is capped by taking it to any friendly controlled CP, doing so rewards 5 points...

    basically since this is a hybrid map the question is what, if any, tag to put on it.

    Its a domination map with a twist to me. So i think its best to have dom_ in front of it. Its definitely not a ctf map and combining the 2 in 1 name is unrecommended. same as for having no tag.

    Hybrid doesnt allways need a new tag. Just like with circular payload which just uses the normal pl_ tag. cp_ also has multiple modes possible (linear, single stage A/D, multistage A/D). Just keep it to dom_ as its basicly a domination map.

    Well, if you want to get anyone at all to play it, go with CP, CTF, PL or TC. More people will search for CP in-game rather than DOM if they're looking for a random map to play. Obviously, since you're using Control Points here, use CP.

    If you absolutely have to do anything else, go for DOM, to keep it simple and descriptive.

    yeah it was inspired by EOTS. I thought the gametype would be fun in TF2. Is there a problem with that ? lol

    after all CTF is essensially taken from other games... Capture the Flag was apparently first featured in an FPS by rise of the triad. should CTF be looked down upon because it isn't original to TF2 and was taken from Rise of the triad?

    I voted for dom_boulder, but mrmuffinman is correct, I think, in saying that people will likely skip over dom_ maps since they don't know what that means. Simply saying CP might be preferrable.

    Every idea in history was copied from someone else.

    I know I just wasn't sure if you were hating on me since this is something that Wow did...

    Sorry, I read that post in a real hurry last time, so I didn't actually catch the intelligence part. :p

    But either way, seems like the the focus is on Control Points, so I still think it should use the CP name.
