TsarbucksHow was koth_coalplant? Didnt play coalplant enough to give a proper opinion.
edit: also, whatever happened to the Norway medic causing casters to sub?
Norways demo stopped answering fishyard when they were going to the airport (maybe). He is alive and well though. Just lan dodged the last second. - Setlet
Just to add on Coalplant: From what I've heard it's not as big of a sniper map as viaduct, which is a big plus. I'm not sure whether it has the fundamental flaws like viaduct (defending the point is the losing play). The map in Demoman's perspective looked really hard, without any good positions to hold from and no good traps from what I saw.
We played in it vs Sweden in a scrim where they had a worse lineup so it really didn't give a lot insight for me. The match vs Norway wasn't really anything, however for practice's sake we tried to always hold from our own high ground/sniper deck, which was really problematic for me as the underground passage seemed like a very easy way to flank me. I think I could have died on many occasions if the DM was there. Maybe if I watched some NA demos (hehe puns) I could see how it should be really played, or at least the most efficient way at this moment.
I don't think it will be added to any ETF2L seasons, as from what I've seen it's not really popular in NA either. It kinda worked for this lan as any koth map would save much more time than a 5 cp map (no 30 minute games, no golden caps). Actually, koth_warmtic was originally in the map pool alongside Coalplant which would have replaced Snakewater. This attempt from Heny was denied by pretty much every player from the tournament :)
