    We were discussing this in chat today so I made a poll.

    I like process the best because it plays well in pubs and competitive and it's detailing is super simple and my little brain doesnt get confused very often. I'm not a huge fan of 2nd because I find the spire ugly and underwhelming and it has a weird shape and just annoys me so much. Process last is my favorite last in the game and mid is solid. In a lot of ways, process is just a tweaked version of many points in other 5cps (well last, badlands 2nd i guess, granary mid), but overall i think it's just more consistently fun in every area and i dont think ill ever be against playing this map at any time in my entire life.

    Badlands is close but it's last can annoy me a lot. If it's last was slightly better, it would probably win because of how awesome mid and 2nd are. theres something really superbly designed about mid and 2nd, its always interesting fighting basically anywhere in these areas.

    Gullywash is also very good, but I dislike being anywhere on mid but the midpoint itself. I really enjoy fighting around 2nd, it's almost as fun as badlands. the dual cap thing is kind of lame but i dont think it will work better than how it does on 2nd. major points for inventiveness with lasts backroute too, totally cool.

    Granary is fun in pubs, except for mid, which is super boring. It's just flat land with boring routes and unless you are playing a competitive class, it's no fun. I do enjoy attacking 2nd and last a lot in pubs. I wish last was easier to push out of, though. competitively, i hate the abundance of right angles on every axis.

    For some reason, snakewater wasn't on the wiki so WOOPS, it's not in the poll. I haven't had much opportunity to play snake recently. I've never had a great deal of fun on anywhere but 2nd though. the rest (mid and last) just seem so big and im always fighting in a giant open, empty area. unless im soldier and then theres cool stuff to jump on like the tower on last and the stuff on top of middle.

    I've never liked Badlands, it's one of the worst maps for pub play. So blatantly made for only Scout/Soldier that playing Pyro/Heavy/Engineer is basically impossible. Last caps too quickly and 2nd is hard to reach so defenders can never push out once it gets there. Severe lack of health and ammo packs on the entire map

    I voted Fastlane mostly because I've always made the best memories there. Is like the Turbine of 5CP maps, real simple but still works and has distinct flanks that are all used. Honorable mention Freight but its 2nd is almost unplayably narrow

    Why are glassworks and sluice in the poll? Neither are official, and sluice looks heavily unfinished.

    Granary, Croissant, and Process are my favorite 5cp maps. Honorable mentions include Harbor, 5Gorge, and Freight's 2nd point. Foundry smells.

    As odd as it seems, the only one that I play regularly is 5gorge. I just think it's fun to play on, maybe it's not the best per se, but I really enjoy it as a map.

    badlands and granary because i got familiar with them before i even understood that the three stages of dustbowl actually arent separate maps

    foundry for nice theme

    process for being cool

    no care for the rest

    I have played only 7 of those more than once. I don't have strong feelings towards any of those maps. In fact, I don't think I have any positive feelings towards this game mode in general. Can't even remember the last time I played a 5cp map :/

    I actually used to play Warpath a lot. I thought it had some fun parts to it. :)

    5gorge is my favorite 5cp because if the teams are even slightly balanced, the game can last a half hour or more. Sometimes you think you are going to win and then the enemy captures 2 points back in a row and suddenly you have to protect last point. I love when tf2 is unpredictable. 5gorge always keeps me on my toes.

    Also, its the first map I ever played on, and I'd have to guess that I've spent about 400 hours on it in total.

    Who keeps voting Coldfront? I mean, it's not a bad map - and detailing wise it's a masterclass in theme - but for me it was always just an average 5cp map. Better than Fastlane and Well, but not nearly as great as Process or Badlands or Granary. So whose voted Coldfront?

    I forgot 5Gorge existed... probably the 5CP I see played the absolute least. What's so great about it? Honest question

    I voted Yukon because I love how it looks; no idea how it plays, haven't done pub tf2 in ages
