    Now that the contest is over, it's time to update the standard cycle. Here is your chance to suggest what you think would be good. Currently (as of yesterday when I finally got sick of the plr/ctf) these are the maps running.

    cp_furnace_b4
    cp_glacier_rc
    cp_steel
    cp_yukon_final
    ctf_haarp_b2
    ctf_vector_c3
    pl_cashworks_rc2
    pl_frontier
    pl_hoodoo_final
    plr_panic_b1


    Meridian will be going in, but at the moment the newest version wasn't on both servers. Remember that we want high-quality nearing-completion maps (that's why I didn't put Nightfall in).

    Say everything you'd like to see even if someone has mentioned it already. You can suggest removals/updates of maps I have listed too.

    edit: newcycle
    ctf_haarp_b2
    cp_furnace_b4
    plr_panic_b2
    cp_yukon_final
    ctf_vector_b3
    pl_cashworks_rc2
    cp_glacier_rc6
    koth_lighthouse_rc5
    ctf_system_rc1
    pl_waste_v2
    tc_meridian_rc3

    Swap out frontier for something newer and better optimized~ There could be more variety in the selection, get some koth in there, or some unconventional ctf; also glacier is now at rc2

    I nominate system or backpier

    Get pl_waste or ctf_haarp on there, or something. Mix it up a bit.

    Eh? What are you talking about. This is for our regular rotation for PLAYING, not for testing.
    Ew, arena.
    Since Nine is redoing Stovepipe I would be hesitant to add it.

    I'm not too sure about Hoodoo. It's already played to death on other servers.

    Cashworks really doesn't play well FPS wise for me.

    I'd suggest Freight, System and Lighthouse (KOTH), as potential replacements for the below:

    cp_steel
    pl_cashworks_rc2
    pl_frontier
    pl_hoodoo_final

    As I think these few have been played to death. I've definately played far too much Steel and Hoodoo.

    I would suggest Offblast... because I haven't actually played it properly before, but it's arena, and nobody likes arena. Though if you could have a 10 minute kickabout on it, it would be cool.

    As my final replacement, I suggest http://www.fpsbanana.com/maps/119087 (Goldrock Gulch) - really fun 5 CP map by Fishbus, just released.

    It's annoying and horrible to play and valve didn't like it much so they made koth which is better because you respawn and don't spend 80% of the time watching 2 engineers duke it out with their pro sentry skills.

    What is this goldrock_gulch map? I saw it on fpsbanana and Icarus actually commented on it.

    Personally I've always liked cp_gydan - definitely a unique custom map.

    ive never really had a fun game on gydan, so its not a map i like...
    though i second the koth_lighthouse nomination, just give it a 15min timelimit

    and you should leave frontier, just because its one of the most recognized custom maps, and that is always useful

    Its always kinda annoying that most of the maps I like don't make it past alpha <_<

    Gydan is way too cramped and spammy in my opinion.
