    Pogger - A tweek to the CTF formula set in a watery gravel mine.

    In this CTF map, picking up the intel closes off one of the escape routes (as long as the intel is being held). This map takes a bit of inspiration from ctf_chin with the usage of a one-way dropdown.

    I made the A1 of this map over the course of several streams on my YouTube channel. Thanks to everyone who stopped by and gave their input on the map during that time.

    Special thanks to Konclan/Afro Melon for the blue variant to the red 2fort metal fence.

    Ah, the streams. Or, as I called them, Paper tries to map while people shitpost in chatâ„¢.

    Anyways, I decided to load up this map, and mess around with some bots. After three rounds, a not-so-good pattern emerged. The intel always went down the short route. There simply wasn't enough time to set up a level three before a heavy jumpscared me.

    So, yeah. The under-track passageway. The short route. I wanted to figure out how fast it was.

    No FaN jumps, no boost, just Scout.

    Turns out, running from intel to pad took just six seconds to get to. Keep in mind, there was a red heavy there, too, about to wreck me to pieces. Overall, I suggest you make the "Short route" a bit longer or more defendable.

    That's all. Otherwise, the map looks and plays amazingly well for being made on a stream.

    After some feedback, I tweaked the sewer/dropdown building as follows:

    -Replaced stairs into/out of sewer with another chin-style dropdown
    -Added doors to sewer cap closest to intel that close when intel is picked up and only re-open on cap or on intel return.

    These aren't the best solutions to the problem they're trying to solve, but I haven't seen how the map has actually played yet, so we'll see how it goes.

    Changelog:
    -Fixed broken doors (hopefully)
    -Moved doors that closed on intel pickup to deeper inside the sewer so that the dropdown into sewer can be used to reach the intel spawn even while the intel is being held
    -Added func_respawnflag to inside aforementioned doors to prevent exploits, as well as making them also open when the intel is dropped (ie, doors will now only be closed if the intel is actively being held by a player)
    -Adjusted dropdowns such that they can be peeked open if need be
    -Reduced pack sizes near intel spawn
    -Added large doorframe to replace high decorative bridges at mid to make it a little more difficult to take the flag through to mid
    -Added window balcony thing between aforementioned structure and intel valley bridge to grant attackers an angle on sentries near the intel (this can also potentially be used by defenders to inhibit stealing the intel)
    -Added tiny func_nobuild directly on top of where intel spawns (may be changed later)
    -Added some lights + other minor geometry changes

    Forgot screenshots, will take them on A3

    Also, forgot to mention in A8, I hid a pogchamp on each side of the map.
    That is all.
