    When will these be packaged on BU to download? It seems like a lot less work then downloading them all individually.

    We have no plans right now to package them. The only way we have access to these files is to do the same thing anyone else would have to do - wait in line at FilePlanet.

    To be fair, this really should be a category.:) Also, DM and CTF fans should already have all of the DM-CTF maps from the other downloads, except DM-Cydian and this was in the CBP3.

    'Good' gameplay would be sort of subjective though.
    There would be more people whining about the results :gonk:

    They already do.
    They're called "Best DM-CTF map & Best WAR-vCTF map" categories.

    Granted gameplay isn't the only factor judged in these categories but it does weigh in heavily.

    ^ This

    Atleast people would bother to create maps that played well instead of just looking good.

    Why?
    So the same people who win in the "best map" categories can also win another prize in "best gameplay" also?
    Because that's what would happen.

    No it wouldn't. HOLP maps haven't won any 1st places. Yet have provided by far the best gameplay for CTF and DM gametypes. They get played in competitive games where as CBP maps don't.

    Some people don't care what a game looks like they just want it to play well..

    Some of the CBP maps have great gameplay people just aren't as likely to download 100+ meg maps :p

    Personally I think allot more work goes into making a map look great, and in getting the atmosphere right than with layout and gameplay, So it's fair that MSUC awards that. They take gameplay into account while judging anyway.
    It can't be all about the gameplay :gonk:
