I like it a lot.

Most games depend on having a firm grip on the mid ground. If your team can dominate it for a short time, engineers have some time to build, then things get really interesting. A lot can be said for this map, but I think it's a great one because you always feel frantic, and are pretty much forced to work as a team in a way few maps require.

As an engineer this map can be very difficult if you want to build mid field. It's not easy keeping your gear up unless there are a few other engineers building with you. If you are the only engineer I find it best to build a sentry somewhere, and as soon as the enemy takes it down, rebuild in another spot, and keep on rotating. Even just having a level 1 in some corner will go under most people's radar and kill up to 5-7 people in large games before they catch on. Dispensers are also critically important since there are only 2 health packs outside the rd/blu bases, both of which are already in high demand.

The bad news is that once the sun goes down, you will only find this map active on 1 or 2 instant respawn servers, which of course will ruin any game. I have NO IDEA why anyone would want to play an instant respawn map.

I really do like this map. Its good because its a map that can be dominated by any class. The vents/tunnels are great for quick escapes and the middle ground is easy to retake even if there are multiple sentries.

At least 1 of the simiancage severs (based in the UK but US players can get decent pings) have it on a rotation, and is voted on alot. Spawn times are close to original aswell, so it makes for a good overall game.

Although 2fort is not bad on TF2F's servers. They limit engineer and sniper to 1, and its no-crits.

I hate Turbine. People usually just deathmatch on it and don't go for the flag. The middle room can be locked down too easily with elevated sentries. It's lame.

You can ignite people through the floors of the catwalks with the flamethrower. Just jump and shoot.

It's my favorite CTF map. We usually have good games on it at Jiggly's.

they are fairly easy to bring down if you have 2 not-dumb soldiers. The problem is finding another not-dumb on most pubs.

If you find the correct severs, every map is fun. 2fort is probably my least favourite, but I still play it, otherwise you're not trying to change the game from a deathmatch to a proper ctf game.

i used to play at jiggly's daily, but they seem to have converted all their servers to that gayass sourcecraft mod. ive found one server without SC, but no one ever plays on it

plug-ins of any time annoy the piss out of me.

i'd so much rather just play a normal game instead of hearign "quake" sounds and having "humiliation" notices and somehting telling me how many points i got for some kill

The servers I play on always have good games going on any map. It all falls apart on Turbine every time.

There's a download filter thing in the options somewhere that lets you turn off sound files from the server.

Same

If there is one thing I wish Valve would do, it would be to have an option to search based on "clean servers" for all their games.

Every time I want to play CSS after a few months of not playing, it takes a while to build up a good favorite server list that isn't bogged down with all of these stupid plug ins.

This map is great in match play. I don't really pub these days. Mach_4 is a lot of fun too.
