    We would like to give the PLR maps for the contest another chance to be playtested. We can run a playtest Wednesday, July 29 at 8 pm Pacific on TF2newbs.com Payload Rotation server.

    If you attend, your map will be given priority to test. If you'd like your map tested, please post in this thread so I can be sure I have it uploaded to the server. We'll get through as many as we can in 1-2 hours.

    Thanks!

    It'd be great if Eureka Dunes could get some testing:

    Thanks for offering the testing opportunity!

    The best list of all the maps is probably the one I have on my forum: http://gaming.calculatedchaos.com/phpBB3/viewtopic.php?f=19&t=2311

    I will be updating the list tomarow morning and putting it in alphabetical order. Provided I havn't missed any that have had an initial public release, the current list should be acurate as far as list of maps go. I havn't updated version numbers since last Monday so those might be a little off until tomarow.

    If you could playtest my map [ame=http://forums.tf2maps.net/showthread.php?t=7620]PLR Nightfall[/ame] I would greatly appreciate it. I won't be able to attend though due to timezone differences. :(

    IP is 69.12.37.14:27015

    This is some quick info I grabbed during this event

    innez
    nice and quick
    ammo near the the pl "destination" on one point far to large
    deathpit bad
    offence engie is a well supported concept
    mostly 4 ratings
    people seemed to love this map

    animus
    long
    blue team exceptionally spawn-campable
    mostly 2 ratings
    would be better as a one sided payload map
    generally speaking people did not seem to be having alot of fun
    the area around the top exit of the red spawn, is highly campable once the cart advances to that area

    eureka
    more health
    1st round took a long time to reach conclusion
    carts stick in the middle area in 2nd round, maybe restore the paths that extend along the top?
    stalemated in the middle until map change (2nd round)
    mostly 2 ratings


    nightfall
    mostly 3 ratings
    nothing really standout, as in, nothing bad, nothing fantastic
    played well
    perhaps too many un used routes

    if anyone is not clear of the areas im refering too I can grab some screenshots, just ask

    and Ive got to say...shameful that as far as I could tell I was the only tf2maps person that showed :p

    I thought this went really well. Mr. AlBobo did come, but like he mentioned I didn't see any others. Probably my fault since I forgot to post the IP until the event started. We are happy to test custom maps almost any time though! You can PM me and I can put you in touch with the right people (I'm in charge of the payload, but I know the right people for the others too :D)

    Payload server: 69.12.37.14:27015 and group with event announcements: http://steamcommunity.com/groups/PayloadPimps (has about 350 people so it's never hard to fill up the 24 person server :))
    Custom server (non-payload): 69.12.37.16:27015

    Octo (the server/group owner) is really cool and laid back and willing to put on people's maps if they need to test or do anything like that, you can always post in the forums and someone will get back to you right away usually. tf2newbs.com/forum

    Anyways, we playtested for about 3 hours, so i think this one was a success. Maps we tested:
    inez
    nightfall
    eureka
    thunderhead
    animus
    highwind

    I'll be posting feedback on the individual threads if I can find them. And I can run another one another time. Just PM me. :)
