    Event Rules and Information (link)

    If there's something specific you want feedback on in your map, write so a line below the rest of your submission, and I'll try to announce it sometime during the round. (Eg: Do the respawn times feel fair?)

    I'll keep playing maps past the end of the gameday as long as I feel like playing TF2 (usually at least 3 more maps from the end). If there is another VIP / Admin on then they can take my place as host, if they are available to do so. Also since we're currently looking at arena_suijin_rc2 as a potential showcase piece, I'm going to add that map immediately after the gameday.

    I am looking for general feedback on the overall layout of the map and, simply put, whether or not it is any fun to play on.

    The rocket at the third chokepoint, however, I am beginning to have second thoughts about. I'm worried it might be too tacky, so I'm thinking of replacing it with a smokestack made from detail brushes. I'm also thinking of closing off the door I placed a large "exit" sign above at checkpoint three if it proves to create too many problems with snipers. That's all I have for specific things, but if anyone finds anything specific about the map, good or bad, please feel free to share it. But, the biggest thing I'm looking for is if anyone had fun playing the map, please let me know what parts of it were or were not fun.

    Sadly, I don't know if I'll be able to attend the gameday itself, I think I'll have to work then.

    EDIT: I have thought of one more thing. I'd like to know if the final chokepoint is balanced or if it's to much in favor of one particular team.

    Updated tupor to a4a. Nothing critical, just a few optimization tweaks. We can play either a4 or a4a, but I suspect a4a will run better.

    BTW does your server support replays? If I could record some replays to look over and see what happened that would be great.

    Every match will be completely recorded as a demo that you can fly around in and watch multiple times. You'll be able to download it after the gameday from here: http://feedback.tf2maps.net/
