where did pl_thundermountain go?

Postby what would jesus do? on Thu Jul 14, 2011 11:24 am

I haven't seen it in months, and when I check it on ukcs stats it says i'm still number 3 on that map, which suggests to me that nothing has changed/it hasn't been played on ukcs for a long time.
I've already asked a few admins and they didn't know that it was gone, and I'm here to raise public awareness about this issue! Is it just a mistake or was it removed on purpose?

i'd like it back. thank you.

Is Hell some custom map?

I haven't played that yet.

But I do like Thunder Mountain. Bring that back.

I like thundermountain more than upward. But meh - lots of personal preference, as usual.

Hmmm... perhaps it received too many negative ratings?

We had no option but to remove it after it consistently caused large amounts of players to leave the server, sorry.

Phew, wouldn't have thought that it's recieved that negatively. Well, understandable choice, still sad for me (and some others, it seems). =)

Thundermountain was one of my favourite maps, especially the 2nd and 3rd stage. Certainly better than the likes of Hoodoo and Mill. Could you at least try putting it back on #8 for a week or so to gather feedback?

And from my anecdotal experience, I've never seen it clear servers until about 1AM, when everyone's going to sleep. And that was months ago. #8 is pretty much full all the time now.

Yet pl_floodgates remains? That map can empty a server at 7pm, let alone in the middle of the night.

How about reincluding it for a limited time and see how the current playerbase reacts to it?
I think it's worth another shot. please.

Yeah, I'm another for love of Thundermountain.

I don't know why it receives the hate it does, but we have Hightower on #1 and I can't believe that's got more positive reviews than Thundermountain.

finally played this on #1, and although i think it seems like an ok map, it is just not suited to 32 man. neither team got past first stage because there's far too many, infact its just non stop, side/high/low routes that are easy for the defending team to exploit and just spam away. i can see why wwjd likes this map as there's tons of hiding places to go decloak/select class/revolver spam from as a spy.
like i said, i thought the map was ok, just at the same time its completely frustrating for pub play. you would need a well co-ordinated team, which really is kind of rare in pub play, to win on attack. either that, or constantly lemming the cart, which is also kind of rare on pub play. sorry, but, i personally dont think its suitable for UKCS. this is comming from a payload fan too. :(

edit: i will also add that it is better than some other maps on rotation, as some have also mentioned. maybe a map purge would be wise.

I've taken the liberty of deleting all maps on the TF2 servers. Thanks for the suggestion! :D

why would you delete all the maps?

purge - to rid of whatever is impure or undesirable; cleanse; purify.

just saying :wink:

Well according to these eerie tomes I have which emanate strangely compelling glows, the only proper way to purge something is with fire and blood.

I'm not allowed in the data centre any more.

Well, custom maps can potentially be considered impure ;)
