propaganda was nice because doors were really open so you could opt for more dry fights/teamfights as opposed to choosing to stalemate cuz you couldn't enter through a choke on other maps
For some reason, everyone complained about that even though id catch the same people complain about people opting to stalemate too much on other maps. the map effectively decreases the amount of stalemating that occurs, but people really really did not like that they couldn't hold chokes close.
during the new map cup, kalinka/logjam were played with prop but not selected. I like reckoner but it's a pretty big process/gully clone.
