Sitting here and wishing the map battles came back won't make them come back, we need to pull our socks up and start one up ourselves.

I think people just stopped caring. People will be like YEAH MAP BATTLE and come 2 weeks later when it's almost over, everyone asks for extensions, no one has entered anything, and it's all just a waste.

People have either become too busy, unmotivated, moved on, or a combination of those.

This is exactly why they stopped

I'm certain that if valve added something new to the half-life series the whole hl2 mapping community would get a breath of fresh life. It's just become to niche as of late and valve's silence has done nothing to help the modding community.

Map Battles used to be so great. I demand someone restore former glories immediately.

I have a feeling the SDK won't be fun to use until Episode 3 is out. That's assuming Valve has some super secret big plan for the SDK upon EP3's release, though.

Can we start our own battles? It looks like the only person starting them is squishy.

Just make a thread and do one, whoever is running them is evidently useless at it! Make it a good theme and I'll enter.

I was thinking something small. I think the inside of a sunken ship might be pretty cool. Could be fun to play with the lighting and stuff. Just one vanity shot.

Okay how about this as a fucking awesome idea, 3 people come up with their favourite map battle theme and we mush it all into one most awesome map battle ever. First one is sunken ship, under the facking water.

EDIT: Is underwater possible to make look good? I can't even remember.

EDITEDIT: Had a play and it doesn't look great.

No-one can proof anyone wrong, I'm sure someone will try to prove you wrong THOUGH.

I would enter if it was a good theme, and that would make you enter source-maps to try and beat me and that's enough people for the most awesome map battle of all time.

Underwater would be all about particles and lighting and animated reflection decals and junk. But I guess that's pretty in depth because you'd need some custom content. What about we get three pictures of buildings of different styles and people can pick one.
