    What are your favorite multiplayer maps?
    choose one "official" map, made by a company, and one "custom" map, made by a mapper.

    I would say that Dustbowl or badwater is my favorite official multiplayer map, (I don't play many other online games besides TF2), and I Steel is probably my favorite custom map. I tend to care more about the gameplay than the visuals, which is why I didn't really care as much as most of the TF2 community about Badwater's "lack of detail" when it was released. I still love that map, because it is always very fun to play, especially considering valve implemented some really cool gameplay that most mappers try for but mostly fail at (large open spaces-beginning and end, verticality- middle)

    my favorite map was cp_siege...but that sadly has ceased to be updated and it remains an alpha :(

    favorite stock map would probably be dustbowl, though I like most attack and defend maps

    Favorite valve map... i go with Goldrush, it was a blast when it came out, the map have a nice balance between teams, and good spots for almost any class. i just love it

    For community map, i used to play some map called Cp_science alot, dunno if there are servers still using it.

    Stock: pl_badwater - the only map that feels like its perfectly balanced in any situation
    Custom: pl_frontier - best fix against the major payload problem 99% of the maps have.

    Also, note that im a IR player. That also is a reason for these decissions.

    And to give some more info, the worst 3 valve maps to me are (for customs i dont know them as there are too many bad maps of them):
    ctf_2fort - the most chanceless ctf battles you can find. Dont expect a team to break 5 lines of defence (bridge, lower entrance, courtyard, spawn, intel) to just pickup the intel and get instantly killed by stickys. At least turbine has 3 lines that are short after each other (center, the routes to the intel, the intel itself) and dont have a spawn that is placed between the lines of defence.
    pl_goldrush - pl_stalemate would be a better name, only normal respawn times work with the map and to wait 20 seconds is too much to wait, if i like to wait i would go arena or css. That map realy needs some improvements that at least allow the red team to spawn faster without giving blue a disadvantage with it. Only stage 3 of it is nice
    cp_granary - the arena version of that map is fine but the cp version is boring as each battle allways feels the same. Well at least has a bit of randomness and more routes or otherwise that map would be the same as granary.

    q3dm6 is the greatest map ever made. No matter how many times i play it i don't think i'll ever get bored of it. It's relatively small and intuitive to get around and the height differences and mix of open and narrow passages keep it interesting.

    for me, it's tc_hydro and I would say best custom as asylum on a zombie server since there are so many different tatics you can use and it's a new setting for tf2.

    (the upcoming) pvk_arena and pvk_cathedral has some of the most awesome special effects ever in their sudden death modes. The various traps and secret rooms in pvk_temple is also hilarious when you're all crowded together smashing each other for the grail. cathedral isn't the most interesting gamplay-wise though, not arena either.

    In TF2 I'll have to say cp_gravelpit. Oh oh oh, and Heyo's arena_harvest!

    I really liked Well, CTF or CP. A favorite custom is probably Aerospace.

    Yeah, Hydro is a pretty cool map. Too bad it always ends in stealmate... :(

    Custom: Tie between Frontier and Cashworks. Seriously, those are awesome maps.
