    Since our server is actually reliable again (fingers crossed), I figure we could do for a change of pace. These are event ideas I see as very possible considering time, effort, etc. I just need to know how appealing they are to all of you :)

    Tournament: Both intra-TF2M and TF2M vs. Colt. Lot of possibility here; random assignments, pre-made teams, admin v. admin, admins v. everybody ;)

    In game dissection of Valve maps: Chatting about details, technique, and why Valve did things the way they did.

    Strategy Talk: Also in game, just flying around the stock maps discussing tips, methods of attack, and so forth.

    And lastly, we might consider asking Valve themselves to do a mapping chat w/ us. Pretty big long shot I know, but it would be totally epic if we can. Assuming I get the inner workings of SourceTV figured out, we could broadcast and record the event. Actually, I guess we can do that w/ any event, lol. I forget who suggested it, but a field trip to Valve hq probly won't happen any time soon :( I think trying to arrange a mapping chat/interview w/ them is the next best thing.

    So does any of this sound like something you would try?

    I'd love to chat with the Valve team most of all of those things listed. Even better would be to chat with them while playing top maps from our community and see what they have to say on them...

    Funny Youme, I thought you might enjoy a little competition :p But to each his own. Getting some Valve guys to play and comment on our maps would be like the greatest thing ever in the history of stuff :D I suppose it's no less likely than arranging a mapping discussion w/ them.

    Same as youme, though I kind of like the 2nd. You could also try and get successful mappers to explain why they designed/detailed the way they did.

    the 1st might be fun if its casual
    i find absolutely 0 enjoyment wandering around a map and talking about it so the 2nd and 3rd fail in my opinion

    and the last...meh...maybe

    If we can request a round or two with any of them, it would be awesome if it pulls through.

    heh...well...i don't like to give definite answers regardless...

    also...it might be nice to occasionally switch gameday to sunday, ive missed the past 2 gamedays due to the apparent need to have things always be scheduled for saturday around noon... (in real life not the gamedays) and im going to miss this one as well <_<

    I wouldn't mind an inter-site mapping competition, TF2 vs Colts, moderated by Youme or something. Maybe a coordinated Uber competition after the payload one is done?
