THIS MAP SUCKS! big surprise there i just blew up your mind. This map is terribly designed and so unfun and unfair on offense, defense has a LITTLE bit more of a easy time.

If the defence has ONE demoman on it, they win there is nothing offense can do about it.
Everyclass on offence loses, every class on defence except demo cannot defend any objective for the life of them.

This map is terrible and is only beaten by wutvile. This is the Halloween Dustbowl but i would rather play on Dustbowl because i actually kind of enjoy it unlike this peice of crap!

ICS learn for god's sake how to make a decent map please because all your maps are trash in their own unique way!

I don't even bother with the contracts for this map because it is a chore to play, this is the worst halloween map ever made by far.

One of, if not the worst map in the entire game

Am I wrong or does this map have a red herring flank route that just spits you out into the same sightline that the rest of the team is pushing already? I don't remember which stage it was on but rerouting that path to somewhere actually useful would make that point a lot more enjoyable to push imo.

its like dustbowl, extremely easy to cap right after the first point if scouts just rush, and very easy to defend last on all of the maps, a single sentry has sight lines over the entire point and there so many door ways you can just sticky spam so easily and spam pills down making it a nightmare to push. i do like the window and one way door that leads to last on one of the maps tho, the map needs more of those counter angles you can push.

Especially the very vocal minority gets frustrated, when they have to grind kills for points and so on. And play the map again few times just to complete that contract. Instead, they should be just playing the game and having fun. Learning the map instead of getting those fast enough quick desperate kills from running one death to another without any strategy.

I'm sure whatever I do this map wont be pleasing to everyone. If dustbowl is your cup of tea, this propably hits close but if thats not what you like, then this map wont be one to like either. Its not exactly easy to create a map and if it would be, everyone would do it. Might want to give a go at it?

I've fixed bugs and issues with it last year and will continue to do so.

That is simply not true. I always comment on my maps when I see fit. If there is no constructive feedback, then there is no point replying. That doesnt mean I dont read comments and follow up stuff related to this map. I've played this map extensively last halloween and also this year. I have seen what people said. I've seen videos, read up posts, comments. I listened and watched.

A lot of people are just playing the map for having fun and being happy with it. Some seem to play this map only because of contracts and they cant be more than happy to be done with it. Thats fine, but also those same people complain after playing less than one game on it.

Like the map looks fine aesthetically speaking for sure, in fact that's what people seemed to be complimenting primarily back when you first made it. Though now, when it's actually in and playable and the majority of comments are people complaining about it being too one sided and then you hop in the comments trying to argue that people were complaining about the opposite thing last year (which is just objectively not true) and how it's "working as intended" it really just makes you seem like you've got your fingers in your ears trying to ignore what people are saying. Or your head firmly inside of your colon

Maybe this'll get the point across more than me just saying "This map is the reason I'm glad Halloween only comes once a year" instead.

Bruh if you go through the comments on this, no one has complained about it being too hard to cap as blu. Never mind your whole argument about "muh team skill" kinda falls apart when you take into account that this is gonna get played pretty much exclusively on valve pubs for a month or two out of the year by entities that are stuck halfway through evolution and barely know what a keyboard is.

i think your map is just not very well made.
