    After some time using almost no custom maps we are going to start adding some customs to rotation from time to time.

    This made me wonder. Should we include all official maps? What about those maps that have two versions? (Well and Sawmill come to mind). How many maps is way too many maps?

    Thanks for your time!

    You usually don't want doubles of older maps and stuff. I personally think steel is okay, but a TON of people dislike playing on it, so that might be an option to remove, and sourcemod for a reason or another always nominates it first. >_>

    I recommend maps like cp_freight_final and cp_follower, they are competitive maps and they are quite a lot of fun. Look into other maps of course, but those two maps are balanced and add a lot of flavor to a server. Make sure to include a fast download for your server so people don't rage quit for the download. :D

    Sorry, this is a dead thread. I just looked at the date. My fault. :(

    Wow someone replied at last!

    After some time I think than the best rotation includes

    CTF Turbine
    (Other CTF map like Doublecross or 2Fort. Not as good but just one CTF map is not enough)

    CP Badlands
    CP Granary
    CP Yukon
    CP Well
    CP Freight
    CP Gullywash
    CP Fastlane
    CP Resonance

    (All Valve 5CP maps + 3 Comp 5CP maps, the most played)

    Follower is not in ebcause it's a remake of Badlands and Granary and it's slot could be used for another map.

    AD Gorge
    AD Gravelpit
    AD HAARP
    AD Avantiville
    AD Glacier

    (Those are IMHO the best AD maps around. Avantiville is not as good as the others but it's fun and is being improved a lot. An Avanti remake is also welcomed any day.)

    In the end I would add Dustbowl here to fill up the server and Steel depends on the taste of the users playing. It's popular in my current server but it seems that's rare.

    PL Badwater Basin
    PL Cashworks
    PL Swiftwater

    Those 3 PL maps are the most varied and do not rely on chokepoints as much as Hoodoo or Gold Rush. All the classes are viable while the spam classes get very strong in those other two maps.

    KOTH Viaduct
    KOTH Harvest
    KOTH Nucleus
    KOTH Sawmill
    KOTH Waste

    KOTH is very popular and all those maps are very varied and provide a gameplay different to any other maps including other KOTH.

    PLR Nightfall
    PLR Panic

    Best PLR maps out there IMHO. I was going to add another but 3 seem too much.

    TC Meridian

    Unfortunatedly this file is HUUUGGEEE and can kill servers. Many people want to play it though so if the community is strong I would throw this in.

    So, what do you think?

    You have a forums or at least a steam group right? Post links to all the map downloads and tell people to make sure to get Meridian especially before it pops up on the server.

    Those are all good maps. You should be set. :)

    Play a little bit less of the bigger maps cause people don't like DLing as much.
