Name the map!

Postby pissed on Tue Mar 25, 2014 9:01 pm

Hi all,

I played a quite fun map ages ago, and can't remember its name, maybe you could help.

It was a capture the flag map, most of it was indoors. But the real twist was, enemy intel was located next to your spawn, and you had to carry it to the enemy spawn.

Any ideas?

Thank you.

Hmm, I've played ctf_haarp before and I remember that I liked it, but I don't think if it's the map I'm talking about. Any other ideas?

I remember it and I am sure our chief map monkey dose. I will try and catch him later on.

No it wasn't ctf_hallofdeath, but that was a fun map as well :)

Thanks for the help guys, I went through my downloaded maps and figured that it was ctf_converge_b3. Apparently there was 1 intel and it spawned at the middle, sorry about the wrong info.

It was a small and fun map, so server #2 might look into it.

There are a few maps similar to this, there is indeed one where you need to pick up the intel in one base and fight it through to the other and each team gets their own intel, can't remember the name though.

What we have found in the past is that anything with odd game mechanics tends to confuse people, by the time they have worked out what to do, the map never really settles down to play, if you know what I mean?

We can certainly give it another punt though.

ctf_backwards_b1 is a "reverse CTF" map (http://tf2.gamebanana.com/maps/66532). Doesn't look like it's indoors though.

Along similar lines is fb_subway_b6 (http://tf2.gamebanana.com/maps/72268), but that's a "One flag CTF" map.

Yup, I know exactly what you mean. People just don't know what to do when they first play this. But if you think about it, the first time you played cp_steel was probably a similar experience, all chaos, everybody lost in the map. So it might be fun to give it a few tries, it might catch on like steel did.

Steel is definitely an acquired taste, the Marmite of TF2. I've played on some gaming communities where it's a server-emptier and others where you couldn't prise people off it with dynamite and a crowbar. I suppose it appeals to the laterally-minded shooters out there :D
