Talk about the mapping scene. I feel like supporting new maps gets brushed off a lot.

NoNoeWayTalk about the mapping scene. I feel like supporting new maps gets brushed off a lot.

People don't have the mental fortitude to test a new map for more than a season which is nowhere near enough time to develop what would be close to the final meta. Established final meta maps are more fun to play because the map itself makes the game less chaotic / more methodical. Nobody has the foresight here to predict which map has the most potential so they keep switching them out in hopes that they'll get a better feeling of potential from the next new season map. Clearcut and bagel are less susceptible to this because koth as a gamemode has less depth and less total meta that needs to be figured out.

Would be interested in their thoughts on the teams that had the most potential in the ESEA LAN days to become a top-2/top-3 team, but did not manage to do so.

Looking forward to it. Hit me up if you need a guest. I believe Slin and I are friends on Steam.

This may not sound very retrospective, but I'd like to hear you discuss the advent of the shortened round timer in a historical context. It must have periodically come up and been rejected over the life time of the competitive scene, so what's your guys' opinion on it? Why wasn't it tried out before? What do you think it would have been like if there had been say a four-minute round timer at all the big international LANs of the past? Do you think the round reset would have come into play a lot because the big LANs always seemed to slow the game down since everyone wanted to win so badly, or would the presence of the shorter round timer simply have forced the teams to play the game at a different pace in those LAN games?

Actually crazy that the second point never got revamped. It was so easy to repush people would feed 3 for sacs.

Wild_Rumpuswould love to hear about what people thought of and adapted to major changes like sticky nerf, medic scout speed, crossbow changes, gunboats etc

And sort of adding on to this, just generally how players adapted to changing metas. Nowadays things are stagnant for the most part and “figured out”, but we definitely play different tf2 than what happened back in the day. I’m curious about the ideas that brought us to this point
