Please note: cp_reckoner_rc2, cp_granary_pro_rc8 and koth_product_rc8 are custom maps. If you don't already have these installed, please click the links above to download them, and then move them to your ..\Team Fortress 2\tf\download\maps directory. Alternatively, all three maps have been bundled into a map pack for your convenience.

The following aliases may be useful for changing maps to the correct version. Add these lines to your autoexec.cfg file, and simply type the name of the map in your console to change to it as long as you have the correct rcon password.

Code:
alias badlands "rcon changelevel cp_badlands"
alias bagel "rcon changelevel koth_bagel_rc2a"
alias process "rcon changelevel cp_process_final"
alias sunshine "rcon changelevel cp_sunshine"
alias snakewater "rcon changelevel cp_snakewater_final1"
alias product "rcon changelevel koth_product_rc8"
alias viaduct "rcon changelevel koth_product_rc8"
alias granary "rcon changelevel cp_granary_pro_rc8"
alias gullywash "rcon changelevel cp_gullywash_final1"

MAP CHANGES SINCE LAST SEASON

Granary: Updated from rc4 to rc8. There is a new Garage.
Reckoner: Updated from rc1 to rc2.

New versions of the maps have been pushed to the ozfortress servers. The old version of Reckoner has been removed to prevent confusion and incorrect use of maps.

REASONING FOR MAP CHOICES

Deciding the map pool is a difficult decision every season, but this season was especially challenging due to multiple factors. We feel the map pool has been stagnating and with genuine competition from new and existing maps, deciding on the Season 19 map pool was discussed at great length. It has long been an unwritten but understood rule that there is an ‘experimental’ map in each season’s rotation, a map that isn’t as established in the metagame and is often still being updated. However coming into Season 19 we were faced by a tricky situation, with an established map of Granary undergoing a significant change in its RC8 release. This change was certainly more pronounced than those in the RC2 release of Reckoner, which since season 16 has been the experimental map and has undergone multiple changes over 3 seasons.

We believe it is our obligation to support the work of map makers by playing and giving feedback to their maps as they evolve by playing the latest available versions. While neither Granary nor Reckoner can truly be considered experimental at this point as they are both relatively ingrained in the metagame, both continue to go through regular updates and revisions that will affect how they are played. For these reasons, despite it being well received in both the first Midsummer Night’s Cup and the ozfortress poll, we have elected not to introduce Bagel in Season 19, instead opting to play the newest versions of Reckoner and Granary.

While neither of these maps are truly experimental, neither are fully established either especially given their latest revisions. For this reason, we encourage and actively invite discussion and feedback on these maps via the ozfortress discord so that the map pool to be the best it can be for the community, and any future changes to the map pool can well informed and based on community feedback and reasoning.
