Requests/feedback for the one-day Sunday tournaments so far have been:

1) Make them start later (now 20:00 CEST instead of 19:00)
2) This map-picking is confusing/wrong/bad (generally complained about before playing, seems okay in practise)
3) Where is dm6? <- most common so far

DM6 is the number one map people want back in, but there isn't really a clear-cut candidate for another map to be removed. I'd prefer to add this and another map to the pool and have 7 maps to choose from. Our options are:

1) Don't add a 7th map. Have map-pool of 6 and if deciding map is required, either agree on a map, or coin-toss to decide
2) Add skull - most well-known of kenya maps, but a lot of conflicting versions out there until all servers updated.
3) Add travelert6 - probably the kenya map i see people playing for fun the most often. Not tested in competition yet, there was meant to be an alternative version but I believe it hasn't been completed, and no void means it lost a lot of character.
4) Add monsoon#td - people who tried it seem to feel positively about it, but not many turned up on Sunday. Not on most servers yet.
5) Add another kenya map - spinev2, doomed, ravageqwb8, shifter, ...

Keen to get thoughts on this - I'd like to update the map-pool for the tournament after next (so the one on 1st October). Don't want things to be too kenya for one-day tournaments though, people should really be able to just turn up and play.

Maybe rotate a different DMx map out every week for a kenya.

Eg:
Week 4 :dm4, dm6, aero, ztndm3, spinev2.
Week 5: dm2, dm6,aero, ztndm3, monsoon
Week6: dm2, dm4, aero, ztndm3, skull
etc.etc.

From most people I know, aerowalk and ztndm3 seem to be generally agreed to be good maps. But the DMx maps tend to be quite divisive, most of them seem to have a 50/50 love/hate when you ask around. What I propose keeps the pool fresh but also means that if your favorite DM map is gone its only for 1 week ...so no need for tears lol.

Is exile the map title or the .bsp file name, as I don't think I've ever actually seen it before? Do you have a link?

Exileb1r6 is the name on the qw2.irc.ax servers atleast. I know there was a few betas out there, but I enjoyed that one.

Found it and had a wee bounce around it. Yeah, seems like a nice map. Would certainly second it if it was ever considered for a tourney.

I love that map. Kinda weird that no one else seem to notice it. It's in my opinion way better then bravado.
Also it's really fun to 2on2 on

hm, seems like I somehow missed it. Actually yes, seems very cool.
