    So it's late at night and i've got a TRULY awful idea for a map.

    It involves the standard RED defends, BLU attacks CP idea, with a twist. The deck is stacked heavily in RED's favor, and BLU is at a severe tactical disadvantage. The catch is that BLU respawns very very quickly (like 2 or 3 seconds), and has easy access to ammo and health supplies. RED on the other hand has very little at their disposal, and their respawn times are either HUUUUUGE (like 30 seconds or more), or I'm thinking no respawn at all for RED. (so it'll be like RED's playing on an Arena server while BLU's playing on a fast respawn server)

    Thoughts? (other than it's exceptionally bad, of which I'm well aware)

    no one likes being cannon fodder

    and that sounds pretty much like what blue will be in this case. It might work theoretically, but either team should be equally fun to play as imo

    people already complain about 18 second spawntimes and you want to make them wait 30? :p

    it'd be interesting as an experiment but i doubt it'd be successful

    Yeah I like it better when someone kills me with a well placed shot rather than the map screwing me over.

    I assume it also involves pipeball?

    There's too many "gotcha's" in tf2 for this to work. Line up one rocket, and if its a random crit you could kill off half the red team. What about spies? Blu just all go suicide spy, what happens then?

    My first thought was that it sounds like MvM where you can actually play as the attacking team.

    I think it is called kamikaze when it is done for the purpose of gaining a strategic advantage.

    heh.

    Red must bowl down the blue team to defeat them.

    What if it was sort of like the old jailbreak mod, and people on one team that were killed on the "slow-spawning" team were captured instead and had to be freed?

    Wish I could remember the name of the CTF map that did something like that.
