    Meme machine, kaboom, and variousartists are definitely my top 3.

    What order? I have no idea.

    I personally really liked AF_rapture, but there were so many people working on it that it's quality was pretty expected. It also isn't "jokey" like other april fools map, it's just a really solid and fun map to play (mann_shaft is a good example of the heart of a "joke map", imo)

    I still think rapture is more fit for a serious map; I see it as something that could be developed further and possibly be added to the game in some sort of future update.

    Mann shaft seemed a bit too generic to me, like it was trying to be too many things at once. I liked the three I picked because they took an idea and ran with it.

    To me, Meme Machine is a perfect example of an April Fools map, and Presidents is a perfect example of a good April Fools map.

    Can't wait for the videos to come, I've been looking at a few of the maps submitted and they're great.

    My current top four maps:

    1. dom_presidents
    2. pd_meme_machine
    3. koth_variousartists
    4. cp_floorislava

    So far they're the only maps that have genuinely made me laugh

    EDIT: Also pls_payloadspam gets an honourable mention 'cos although it wasn't funny, the gamemode was cool and I wanna see more of it

    I know it wont count towards the contest, but I updated my entry (koth_working_class) to B2, and while people are still in the 'foolish' mood, would people be up for giving it a few test plays?

    At the end of the day, no matter how well it fairs in the contest, I still want to put my map out there so it can be enjoyed in the future.

    I really enjoy the concept but thought I lot could be improved... I would be interested in seeing what you changed!

    Sorry @14bit but I'm going to have to disqualify re_terminal due to a bug that causes a lot of players to crash from the game. I didn't personally, but the map practically wipes the server whenever it's up and cannot be tested properly. Always a bummer for something like that to happen. :/

    To everyone else, I've tested all the maps now and just need to sit down and write up/ compile the results!

    edit: wait no I missed one, crap

    I'm actually not sure if I saw any maps from previous years at all this month, besides chiron's update.

    Also, vids when?

    We have this up currently. But it might be a bit out of date now. EU/ US servers are still running them in rotation through the weekend, though!

    As always, I will try to get as many recordings/videos of this year's joke maps as possible. But it will take some time as I format them in 1080p, 60 fps via the source recorder and exporting the demo via the startmovie command from the console commands.

    If there is a particular version you want me to showcase or if you want your map skipped altogether, please let me know in a PM. Someone requested me to use a specific version of their map, and I want to present everyone else the same opportunity.

    Well if you have any recordings of koth_working_class_b2 then use that, but b1 was the version I entered into the contest.
