    But Turbine is one of the best CTF maps! It's not very easy to turtle which is why I personally find it enjoyable.

    I probably would've gone for Impact over Turbine, but I can see it. It's like the anti-2fort.

    I wonder, though, if they're going to be a new, "final" version, since I thought the last version of Turbine was a b3, and the last time I looked at Fastlane, it needed some optimization.

    EDIT: Okay, it wasn't a beta, it was v3. Granted, that was eight months ago...

    Yep, turbine needs teamplay and doesn't support turtling. I personally like it. :D

    I really don't like turbine's central area, and how incredibly easy it is to lock a team into their base. All the base exits should not be on the same wall with minimal cover for players coming out. I often find myself sticky-camping one of the exits because of all the times I thought "I'm not going to do that, that's cheap", and five minutes later the other team was doing it to my base.

    On the other hand, it is definitely one of the better CTF maps, and I fully support Valve choosing a CTF map for this.

    I like turbine quite a bit myself. I've played quite a bit on it, I do think there's a final vers out.
    Good layout and teamplay required, fun for all classes.
    I'm glad this made it over Mach4, I think it's a better map overall.

    I like fastlane but it seems unbalanced somehow. I've played it quite a bit to and it seems like Red wins at least 85% of the time. I think red starts on higher ground, at least other players have said that. I've played on red and blu and the outcome always seems the same. Usually it's red 4+ times in a row. Once you get backed into last point it can be really hard to escape. I like Badlands better but this can be a fun map too and pretty well done.

    Anyway, congrats to both of those mappers, I'm sure they are quite stocked by that outcome. I wonder when different maps will be added, next update?

    I think ctf_turbine doesn't deserve to be official, not a good layout and the arquitecture is very simple.

    Turbine is fine, i dont mind about the looks. If map looks good its just plus but it shouldnt be big part of judging if map could be official or not.

    Personally im glad that Valve seems to put layout first and looks second.

    I'm suprised and a little dissapointed turbine is being sent out officially, it's already got such a good covering of the comunity it doesn't need it.
    Its a good map and all but It just not really good enough compared with some of the other options out there

    Yep, i gotta agree that there might have been better maps. Maybe Valve thinks that those maps are not ready yet?

    In my opinion Turbine is quite simple and it really felt finished right from the first game. That does not happen too often with unofficial maps.

    Turbine definitely could have used some visual polish before being sent out. There's not enough story to its theme.

    turbine is a frickin box with more boxes inside it. Its a horrible map. If valve releases the same version that is V3 I wont be playing it.

    We are just all jealous because our maps didn't make it ^^

    So map with everything you got, spam every forum like vile promotes his maps and it works (and his maps look/play good but diffrent) and cross your fingers.

    Yeah, I would bet anything mach, impact, or stag would have gotten in if they hadn't been ports from other authors.

    Maybe they will "jazz up" the maps before release?
