#13 tf2 invasion maps potential?? in Map Discussion

I'm kind of curious if there is any interest in a legit pro version of probed. Silly gimmicks removed, turned to day time, probably a couple other tweaks. Not sure if the layout is worth it? I sort of feel like the shape of it might amplify the shooting-from-the-right-side imbalanced nature of mirrored maps.

Any thoughts? Is it worth the effort?

itszedinb4 a pro version of probed called bed

That or koth_casualbed was the plan if I ever did it. :)

#35 We need to encourage TF2 map makers! in Map Discussion

I know you guys are focusing on 6s here, but just wanted to throw my hat in as the creator of Glassworks.

I did everything I could to have it tested as thoroughly as possible. I did high level, extensive testing for about a year before it's debut in UGC this past season. I poked and prodded as much as I could just before the season started to get as many eyes on the map as I could.

Then as soon as it's week came up, suddenly all the people who hadn't cared to look at the map yet started paying attention and taking issues with it. It was dead silence until just before their matches, and suddenly the map was to blame for their losses and half the league seemed to have problems with it. The commonly thrown around notion was to scrap the map because it would always be "terrible."

I'm not saying it's perfect, it has room for improvement, I got some valid feedback that I plan to implement, but after two years of development on the map, getting it dismissed on a passing glance is frustrating. The actual legit issues could've been found had more players bothered to look at new and upcoming maps and taken time to provide feedback to them. It's hard for mappers to see their map the way the players do because they have been so close to it for so long. If you want solid maps, the feedback loop has to happen.

#76 cp_glassworks (5cp) in Map Discussion
TwiggyIt's perhaps a dumb question, but why do you say the map is specifically made for highlander? From what I see it could be a great 6s map too, i'm interested in your design choices and why you think it's more HL focused.

Mostly meaning I've focused heavily on testing in Highlander during it's development. And since I made the first layout of it, I kept highlander in mind (one of each class, amount of people on the map at once.) I still haven't sat down and watched a 6s match for feedback, but I've watched a ton of Highlander.

It could potentially work in 6s, but I've gotten mixed reviews back from people who have tried it.

Just a reminder that this map has changed since the start of this UGC HL season, especially around last, so make sure your teams check it out before your match!

You can find the changelog video comparing the previous version to the latest above.

The dismissive response to the Source 2 question was really weird, not sure why it was handled that way.

I'm not familiar with the term dedicated choke, could you be more specific about which route that is?
