I'll come up with a catchier title later. So this is an idea I entertained chat with a while ago, and continued to do so periodically while I continually forgot to make an actual bloody thread about it. The idea is that we run a event where we play the very first-released versions of maps that were later bought by Valve, or are otherwise very popular in the community (such as in competitive TF2). Besides being a bit of fun, I also figured it'd show new mappers that these incredible, beautiful, ambitious projects didn't start as such - a lot of them kinda sucked, actually - and in turn encourage them to not give up on a project just because it had a few rocky tests. (That's something I could've learned earlier...) NOTE: I'd like to keep it solely to a1's (and a0's if you like), but I'll allow newer versions if it's an absolute necessity (if the first version has broken spawns/objectives etc) So, who would be interested in taking part in this? And veteran map makers, would you be willing to put a map forward? EDIT: Serious maps only. I know Mario Kart and cp_orange are popular, but... no. EDIT 2: Here are the maps we've got so far: Spoiler arena_suijin_a1 cp_byre_72_a1 cp_borneo_a1 cp_crash_72_a1 (aka the original cp_glassworks_a1) cp_furnace_a1 cp_sunshine_a1 pl_corrode_a1 pl_frontier_a1 pl_pier_a1/a2 pl_volcanic_a0 plr_nightfall_a1 tc_strata_a1 As you can see there's quite a few, so this'll most likely be split into multiple events.
