    Hey.

    So I've started to donate for just 1 month at the moment to see how it goes. One of the problems I have with the Payload Maps is the the lack of maps. They seem to revolve around Badwater, Upward, and Barnblitz Pro 6.

    I recommend removing regular Barnblitz and keeping Barnblitz Pro 6 as the primary map for it. It holds off that choke-point on regular Barnblitz. I also recommend removing Enclosure as well, and maybe even Thundermountain.

    I would LOVE to see the following maps added. I've played these maps on other servers, and I think it'll increase more engagement and lead to more donations:

    Cashworks Pro/Final 1: https://tf2maps.net/downloads/cashworks.42/

    Badwater Pro v9 (moves up spawn areas and reduces choke points): https://tf2maps.net/downloads/pl_badwater_pro.962/

    Shoreleave: https://tf2maps.net/downloads/shoreleave.1369/

    HooDoo Final: It used to be on the rotation, but since Goldrush isn't crashing, lets give this a shot again?

    Deadwood: https://gamebanana.com/maps/110045

    Pier: https://tf2maps.net/threads/pier.17691/

    Metropolis: https://tf2maps.net/threads/metropolis.15481/ PLEASE BRING THIS ONE BACK. LIZARD WAS BEING SNARKY WHEN HE SAID IT KILLS THE SERVER.

    pl_enclosure is garbage, I agree it should probably be removed.

    pl_hoodoo, I can't remember exactly why it was removed but it was similar to pl_goldrush in that it's very narrow and not very optimised for 32 players.

    I can't comment on the others right now.

    Maps do seem to have gotten a bit stale. I agree we need some new map rotations.

    +1 to all of that except removing thundermountain. Enclosure is meh, so I really could go either way with that.

    The problem with these maps is that they are already many years old and never got popular.

    Many people didn't like metropolis or hoodoo.

    Pier and Cashworks are far from hated, they are great maps and quite a change, is it not possible to just give it a try?

    Metropolis is my favorite map. I will play it any time.

    It might not be everyone's cup of tea, but then, that's what the voting is for, right?

    Steam:

    You really need to garner a lot of support if you wish for pier or any of the other maps to be added. With Valve consistently halting the growth of community servers, we can't gamble with map pools unless there's a backbone behind them. Changes we make may satisfy some but the same can be said for unsatisfying others so it's not something we can just do. It's been over a month since this post was made and we're not even on a second page with posts, let alone vouchers so you're going to need to change that if you wish for change from us.

    +1 to all but metropolis, agree that this needs more vouchers to get these maps added.

    If I recall correctly Metropolis was added in sometime ago. It was emptying out the server and had to be removed because of it

    I don't think age of a map or quickplay issues will effect the server at all.

    There are about 10 maps now, some of them old, some people will refuse to play. So what's the issue with adding new maps?

    Any payload server out there has Metropolis, Cashworks, Pier, etc... and they are great maps.

    Sure you'll always find the person who despises the map, but should they dictate what gets played?

    Currently there is a lengthy wait at night to get in, so popularity isn't a big issue at the moment.

    If anything kills this server, it will be the competition level snipers ruining the gameplay for everyone (that's another issue, another thread).

    Having hoodoo or Metropolis or any other very popular map won't ruin the server.
