Didn't read the entire thread but maps should not be removed because 'people dislike it' or 'it is overplayed' because that is subjective to the individual player. Maps should be removed based on the criteria of

1.) Is it buggy or resource heavy?
2.) Are there spots that people can get to that will make the game unfair in some way?

Another big factor that should be looked at is the "balance" of the map. There's just so many maps that are in such high favor of the players (ex. 2fort_desk, crevice). When the mercs seem to win 80%+ of the time, I think there's probably an issue there.

 

Also when maps are just too big in general, and stalemate a lot, megaman and pumpkin farm would apply here. Pumpkin farm for example, has a huge basement that's basically a maze down there, and a player can go down there and probably be ignored the entire map until they're the last person.

SPEAKING OF MAPS.

 

Funbox needs good deathrun maps.

 

Most people on funbox dont enjoy deathrun due to the fact that most of the maps arent very good or exciting. To solve this, we can add new deathrun maps that people on 24 hour deathrun servers run that are usually chosen and played.

These are just a few of the really good deathrun maps the funbox server fails to offer. Sorry about the links, I cant copy and paste links into here for some reason so I typed them all by hand. All of these are found on gamebanana obviously lol. But I would honestly LOVE to see some of these cool deathrun maps get added just to spice things up a bit you know? Deathrun is boring and hated by most people, its actually a common practice to troll the entire vsp funbox server by nominating a ton of bad deathrun maps lol.

 

On the topic of vsp maps however I dont find any of the maps super silly besides the ones with broken spots that have already been named. Dunes comes to mind anyway. But I wouldnt mind adding some newer maps to add spice to the server, its just I really want these deathrun maps added in so we can give funbox some actual good deathruns besides saftery first, office, horrors, and sawmill. This would also help remove some of the bad deathrun maps like cubed, slay, dust and the others I cant remember. 

Sorry for my bad grammar in all my post but just wanted to throw this somewhere, hopefully important people will read it.

 

Also if anyone knows if there is a better place to post this please tell me, I almost put this in the boss suggestion thread because the maps are almost as important as the mechanics themsevles.

This. I am a person who likes to play death run time to time and vsh. And this is the main problem about funbox, the dr maps are to bland, and there only a few of them when compared to the vsh maps.

 

On that maps whyyyy.exe link, cryptnecrodancer supermario64 are ok. Bank, 4halls, and psykopat are great DR maps and I would like these to be added in with a few others. wintervalley is an ok map, but the map is long and the rounds tends to last too long on it.

 

Another map i would like to see it draconain http://tf2.gamebanana.com/maps/167382, its a good classic death run map, nothing too big or small.

These maps will be added. But first, could someone test them to make sure that they work? As in examples on other servers or putting them on a test server. We can do that, but it will take a bit before that's available. It would speed the process up if anyone can make sure that the deathrun maps actually work and don't crash on startup or the like.

Me and my friend stardust have both played these deathrun maps and just to make sure they work we took the extra step to run them through console and see if they break and they are fine and all of them are passable by sniper (besides winter valley). 

Here are three deathrun servers that run these maps.

retroservers.tf #2 WO2 (104.153.109.14:27015

skial (104.153.106.182:27015)

DISC.com community (74.91.119.154:27014)

Keep in mind we can find more deathrun maps if people want them, me and stardust just picked the most popular and played ones on these servers. Thanks for adding them, its always great to get new maps!
