    Valve has an incredibly weird opinion of what's a bug apparently.

    That Dustbowl exit as a ninja teleporter spot was a serious meta boon. The risk is low to leave an exit in there, but without the correct skill, timing, and team co-operation, the reward isn't even that great. But if BLU doesn't check for whatever reason, and you can distract them at 3B for long enough to build up inside and move the sentries outside, the effort and patience get rewarded with re-establishing a strong chokepoint.

    It's not like the Egypt or Gorge moonbases where only an explosive jumper could get up there; on Dustbowl you can send them plus Scouts to conk the teleporter as soon as the chokepoint is broken, and the cramped space means it's not easy to hold once BLU is in. You can even dispenser jump to get the rest of the BLU team in there if it's really a problem.
    • Thanks Thanks x 1

    Bug? No. Design flaw they want to fix? Sure I'll take that.

    It's like mini-sentries gaining health during construction. It wasn't a bug, but they called it a bug as if there'd be less irritation over changing it.

    They didn't stop you from building in that corridor, nor from establishing that popular sentry spot. The only change was to stop you from putting a teleporter (or any building) right at the spawn door that you could still use while inside spawn.
