    Whenever you think that the layout is solid, no gaping sightlines, each class can have fun and has a counter in the map, it flows well, etc.. that is the best time to start detailing and calling it b1.
    I do not know what BX is for, or if its used for anything, but RC is the final product. When the layout is at its prime, and all the detail kinks have been worked out.
    RC means that, hey this map is done, valve look at it.

    Beta is for when you believe the layout is finalized and you will start the artpass. You can still make major changes if you want to at this point but I'd recommend waiting until you think the layout's done to go to beta.

    Watch this video tho.

    Please, quality over speed, you can always repurpose it if it isnt finished in time for Mayann.

    (If you really want to get it in a community update, then you'll be happy to know there'll be more after Mayann)

    Community updates don't mean anything until Valve grabs onto one. There's more than just two community projects a year and even if you finish a map for the project there's no guarantee that the project will even get picked up as an update.

    If I were you I'd stop trying so hard to get a map in the game and just chill a little.

    There's no evidence that Mayann is going official.
