    Today in chat, we* had a discussion about:

    The Team Fortress 2 Maps Olympics!

    In celebration of the recently-ended London 2012 Olympics, we figured it'd be pretty sweet if we hosted our own Olympics. It's a great way to promote alternative playstyles to games, and make some pretty cool custom maps in the process.

    If you'd like to help, just ask! We're still coming up with ideas for games, prizes, coverage, etc. Also remember that this isn't just TF2! This is open to any game, although keep in mind that some games wouldn't work all that well.

    Here's a list of some of the events we came up with:
    • Huntsman Archery
    • Demoman jump
    • Gunslinger jump
    • Soldier basketball (ctf_baller)
    • Intel relay race
    • Scout jump course (w/ FaN)
    • Soldier jump course
    • Arma II/Just Cause 2 cross-country
    • ANYTHING in Garrysmod

    Anyways, just discuss this so we can flesh this out into a more definitive thing. There are no stupid ideas**!

    *Me and anyone in chat who happened to agree at the time
    **Debatable

    It would be interesting if you could design a map where each class of a highlander team performs an event. Winning an event will add points for your team. after all events are complete the team with the most points wins and gets to kill their opponents :D

    Edit: Would probably require a plugin too

    I was actually being as serious as possible with the 6 hour contest.

    A great time limit, with only little chance of getting bored under-ways (Which is how I failed to enter the last 3 major contests)
