    I like how the standard of control points these days is to slap a roof on top with a couple holes in it.

    I'm not saying it's a bad choice, it opens up a lot of play options and fits well in TF2. But it is turning into a bit of a cliche. :)

    It'd interesting how that stuff builds up steam over time. In 2007 every CP was wide open with a few vertical components around the edges (aka granary). My in-brain timeline of maps is a bit unreliable but somewhere around the time Harvest or Coldfront hit the game, the evolution started. Now even Valve does it.

    That's a fair point. That's one of the reasons I decided to make the bridge an arch to change things up a bit. I'm looking forward to seeing how this works gameplay wise.

    Or, perhaps, a non-bridge point?

    no way man making a CP that isn't a straight up bridge, spire, house, bridgehouse, housespire, spirebridge, bridgespirehouse, or granarymidclone takes time and creativity and maybe a couple sketches, nobody's got that

    (badlands last clones not mentioned since they only work where they work)

    I read "...sawhouselaser..." as "whorehouselaser." What's wrong with me.
