I hope so too, but they don't usually appear until right before Xmas.

I am working on a list of maps as a Christmas rotation.

If you have any suggestions for a regular map over the Christmas and new year period, then post the names below. :)

Great news.
Looking forward to frags in the snow with some seasonal tunes playing in the background.
It couldn't get more traditional and Christmassy than that. :D

A few maps spring to mind that I haven't seen for a while

dolls
crookcounty
westwwood

also a snowy version of dust2

Yea you have to start off with dustmas_v2 and also that cs_xmas map :)

Maybe an idea to have alltalk on for the christmas period and not just limited to ukcs4. And hopefully a christmas fun night :)

Oh yes. This is way more exciting than waiting for some old beardy bloke in red coat to drop by with a sack load of c$^p you don't want or need.

There will be a medley of christmas maps on tomoro @ 19:00 onwards from server 2 perhaps a few haloween maps thrown in for good measure too.

There will also be one same time and same server on the 21st Dec!

I remember having seen a good mix of common and Christmas-maps on rotation in 2009. Which was a pleasant time :D . It was not only for the actual Christmas time (Dez. 24-26th) but also for the Weeks in advance. If there was a x_mas map on, there where 1 or 2 x_mas maps to chose from in the voting, mostly on #1. That was nice to have the x_mas spirit for an advanced period of 2 or 3 maps.

So far this year i've seen cs_xmas, xmas_j2eve and all the other modified common maps like de_dust etc.
That's a welcome change in context to Christmas time but in my opinion not often enough.
Steff u said u still got the list of maps u used last year would be fine if u bring them on.

There might not be xmas_lodge in it which we had 2 years ago, is it :?:

xmas_lodge is a de_map with both bomb sides in sight a 2 storey house and, of course, a radio that plays Wonderful Christmas Time
by Paul MC cartney. It might goes on your wick after a while but it's a nice atmosphere when you plant the bomb.
How ever the most important thing about xmas_lodge is that it got an outdoor area with much snow and a nice decorated building to storm in.

The de_losttemple winter version is amazing too.

Epic winter map Blaze!


Actually I'm not to well up in on what server the above called maps appear regularly these day's but it would be fine to see some of them more regularly on ether #1 or #2. The possibility to choose a further x_mas related map while one is on would be amazing :D

xmas_lodge should be on rotation on server 1 and 2.

de_survivor_css had some fps issues for some players but I will look into it asap.


de_losttemple winter version will attempt to get onto rotation also.

We still have 5 xmas maps reserved for an xmas event this wednesday after the event they will be added to rotation aswell.
