A blog dedicated to posting information that people don't usually read on Steam. Also whatever artwork we draw up.

Are you sick and tired of playing on maps you know nothing about?
Then be sick no more! We've come up with a way to help fix your confusion without making you jump through a million hoops.
Join the server and play on a map you don't know too well or just havenn't seen before? Simply type in !mapguide and voila, your motd box will open and direct you to a guide of the map you're currently playing on!
So far, we're testing this feature on Chocolate only, and don't have many guides up yet. We currently have a guide up for the recently added 'cp_zinkentite_valley' located below!
Would you like to help write a guide or some strategies you found for a map? Contact Rowdy!
Thanks to Ozzzy for inspireing this idea! For that, he gets player of the week!
[2/26/2012 3:38:04 PM] Rowdy: Ozzzy has just given me a glorious idea [2/26/2012 3:38:47 PM] Rowdy: Let's say you're in the server [2/26/2012 3:39:02 PM] Rowdy: and we go to a map that you've never played before, immediately people are confused right? [2/26/2012 3:39:09 PM] Rowdy: Because they don't get the idea, the setup, etc [2/26/2012 3:39:32 PM] Rowdy: So why not make a command to pull up a simplified guide of the current map? [2/26/2012 3:39:49 PM] Rowdy: Use the serverhop plugin in conjunction, since the website knows what map a server is playing [2/26/2012 3:40:24 PM] Rowdy: That way, they can just use like, !mapinfo, and it pulls up a page with a picture of the map layout, along with some useful information
