    As some of you may know, I've been making PL Dawn's Vigil since the Winter 72 Hour Jam this year. I've had quite a bit of testing on it (both inside and outside of TF2Maps), including lately some competitive testing. I'm now nearing the stage where I'm happy with the layout and want to start detailing the map.

    The other day when I was in the steam chat it was suggested that I rename the map so that it only has one word in the name. So my question is should I rename my map, and if so, what name?

    Some background information for those of you who don't know: the final point is in an observatory on top of a mountain.

    Thanks,

    More than one successful map has had a two-word name (Badwater Basin, Mountain Lab, Gravel Pit). For me personally, I think "Dawn's Vigil" is an incredibly unique and memorable name, while "Vigil", "Vigilance", and "Vigilant" all sound really generic and unmemorable.

    Well if it's an observatory watching over the rest of the map, you should definitely rename it to pl_overwatch

    Honestly I remembered the name "Dawns Vigil" before I had even played the map. I took one look at the map thread, and I hadn't forgotten the name. It has a nice ring to it, and it's pretty unique.

    imo its kind of an unweildy name and a shorter one would be more appropriate

    Dawn's Vigil sounds like the title of a poem that an overachieving 8th grader would write. It just sounds pretentious. If it's going to be set at dawn, just call it pl_dawn.
