    I'm not entirely sure how that fits the TF2 theme better than the other one. Also, because of the spacing and elevations, it reads as "T2F".

    I would suggest trying to come up with something more iconic and "flat" (rather than layered), such as the Red bomb or the Blue wrench logos.

    I was just copying the old logo but trying to make it look better, the old one had the same text "T2F" But I could try and make a completely new one, I know what you mean but I can't really be bothered right now, it's 10:08 PM.

    Ah, I see. I had thought you were referring to this. I don't recall seeing the one with the two mallets before. Yours at least has more appropriate font and shading.

    Yours is much better than the old one. But yeah, I agree that it shouldn't read T2F, even if the old one did.

    Why doesn't the first one fit? I think it does. TF2 font, TF2 logo and a couple of Hammers... fits very well in my eyes.

    It's the wrong style of logo design for the eras represented in TF2.

    I agree, great effort but it's not that good to fit the TF2 theme.

    It also looks very photoshoppy. (bevel and emboss, well, = NOOOOOOB)

    Ya know, I've been thinking about the Steam group quite a bit lately. 'TF2 Mappers' has long been dead and gone. We are the TF2Maps.net community now. I think the only time anything gets updated or posted there is for Gamedays. Unfortunately, there is no way to change the name of the group. The alternative would be to simply create a new TF2M Steam group. While I think this would be highly beneficial, the move would be kindof a nightmare. Still, I think this is something we should really consider.

    Ok, I'm going to make a new one based of the old one, that will fit the TF2 theme and will read "TF2"

    Making the logo read "TF2Maps.net" instead of "TF2 Mappers" would be a good idea in my mind.

    Actually, you're right there. I take back my statement, it's not awesome enough until it has the "correct" name. :p

    It's quite unsaturated, that's all i have to say really. It is good though.
