    The next day in the classless update brings us King of the hill and some new hidden pages.

    To simplify everything:

    1. We're getting A new game mode
    2. we're getting a new snow theme
    3. we're getting Koth_viaduct
    4. we're getting 2 new remakes of arena maps
    5. and Icarus (Yes I fixed that, now you all have to delete your post's about how I needed to fix this.) will have to edit koth_waste

    Classless? So far, this update is shaping up to be quite classy...

    Ah more game modes for us to work with! :D There are plenty of koth maps already out there. Not just icarus' waste. That viaduct looks cool. But new snow theme you say? Where?

    EDIT: Cancel that. It really does look quite snowy. xD

    Edit 2: Any new hidden pages popped up?

    It will be a nice change of pace to get new content like this where half the team isn't playing the same class.

    Didn't you see? in the screen shots it takes place in the snow (while it's snowing).

    Besides the new snow theme not looking all too great (Color pallete is a bit odd), this is shaping up well. Though Nucelus as a KOTH? Hmm... just doesn't bode well with me. Badlands KOTH would be awesome!

    The snow theme looks less cool than the new sawmill theme (from screenshots at least), but it looks better than the current custom snow maps.

    No offense guys, just being honest here.:O

    But cool, KOTH. I was pretty skeptical about Valve leaping onto it, but it's not a bad decision. KOTH maps have been more fun than arena maps for me.

    Nucleus koth makes more sense to me than lumberyard koth - at least nucleus is relatively focused around the centre, while lumberyard is all over the place.

    Are you serious? Just compare, say, cp_glacier's screenshots with Viaduct's. Valve's snow theme looks like the alpine theme with everything green made white, really.

    This may also be because they posted three screenshots of the spawn, though :/

    I never really understood how their updates work...do they tell you what they are releasing and then release it after all the "Days" have been uncovered?

    Glacier has some things I like a lot, like the many snow overlays for the buildings, but overall it doesn't look as solid as those Viaduct screenshots. I mean, Viaduct just pops off the screen really nicely like all of Valve's new themes.

    Interesting how the blog announcement had "and some classic community maps" in it before, but it's been removed.

    I'm calling Aerospace as one of 'em.

    There's community maps in the update, but I seriously doubt Aerospace.

    Hahaha, while everyone's looking at the new page, take a quick look back at the old one! (see if you notice a difference!) >.<

    Hint: Scroll to the bottom.
