Team Fortress 2 Update Tomorrow

Valve announces a free Team Fortress 2 update is coming tomorrow via Steam as a Valentine's Day gift to all owners of the multiplayer shooter. The patch notes are here, and here's the press release:

Free Team Fortress 2 Update Coming Thursday

Tomorrow at 11 am PST all PC versions of Team Fortress 2, the class-based multiplayer action game named PC Game of the Year by Gamespy.com, will receive its largest update since the product was first made available on October 10, 2007, as part of Valve's best-selling Orange Box compilation.

The free update includes global optimizations for networking, graphics, and player statistics, plus improvements to Source TV for tournament viewing.

In addition, three of the currently available maps (Dustbowl, Granary, CTF_Well) have been iterated for enhanced performance and gameplay.

The release is headlined by the introduction of "Badlands," a new map that pushes control-point gameplay onto vertical landscapes.

Available free to all Team Fortress 2 PC gamers around the world automatically via Steam, there are too many features and improvements included in this update to list here. To view the full release notes and/or find out more about Team Fortress 2, please visit www.steamgames.com.

Yeah, so I don't care if you think 2 fort is boring. I think the rest of the maps are boring and 2_Fort is actually designed simple enough to be strategic... sometimes. That's why I was asking if anyone knows any TF2 maps that are simple CTF maps like 2_Fort.

I used to play the original TF when it came out for Quake. I have the fondest memories of multiplayer Quake than I do of any multiplayer game...ever. CTF with the grappling hook was amazing. But I wasn't trying to be nerdy and compare. oh well - TF2 could be good they just need better CTF maps. Where can I get em?
