    Along with these, the following 17 maps will be removed from the rotation:

    Duplicates:
    Canadian Fort
    Kill Creek IV

    Least rated:
    Platforms I
    Moria V
    Molten
    Aquafus V
    Castle Cavern IV
    Divinity's Reach V
    Beaver Creek I
    Slate
    Treeline I
    Tibetan Seclusion I
    Futuristic City
    Ravine Ruins
    Modern Diversity
    Airlock I
    Castle Village I

    For this map wave, we let a format called Spotlight Saturday run before the ingame testing phase, in which the map builders got direct feedback from the community and improved their submissions. The three Spotlight Saturdays hosted contained all submitted maps since May 16th, 2018 up until the event, excluding only one map which we deemed not ready yet to be tested ingame. All maps set in Spotlight Saturdays - including a few ones we forgot and those submitted until to May 5th, 2019 - were subsequently part of the ingame player voting phase. Players could cast their vote on every map ingame and on a Google Form that was linked in a forum thread. Ingame and forum votes were weighted at a 66:33 proportion, as last wave was. The percentage cutoffs (65% for both originals and variations) were decided by how many originals and variations would make it in.

    As for the removed maps, map ratings between March 22nd and May 24th, 2019 were compiled and the lowermost 15 maps removed. Two additional low rated maps were removed, as this wave introduces a variation of them. Due to community request, we added a section to the forum voting sheet to state if you liked the proposed variation more than the respective map that was currently in rotation. We compiled those results as well but found it hard to merge with the regular votes, as they should be a priority. In general it coincided well with the map votes, though.

    If all of this was too much, you can have a direct look at the numbers in this Google Table. Furthermore, a trailer for the map wave was posted yesterday showcasing the upcoming maps, which was created by our CTF mod @wintergreen3. If you're feeling fancy and have a spare two minutes, have a look at it here!

    We hope you enjoy the new additions!

    Happy capturing,
    The CTF staff team :flag:

    Is there a way we can view comments on maps in the voting form?

    Will Spotlight Saturdays be continuing? It was a great way for the map makers to get timely feedback on maps, and refreshing to see different maps as well.

    And even then, it still had enough votes to be kept in the rotation. It'd still be in the rotation if it weren't for the reworks. Rip :V

    Absolutely devastated to hear the 200+ hours I worked on my map earned one of the worst ratings on the votes. This hurts. Alot.

    I've added a new tab in the Google Sheet with the community responses to every tested map. :thumbsup:

    @cityscaper Sorry to hear that, don't let it get to you too much though. Many people had their maps fail before a successful map made it in. Keep on editing and improving. :sun:

    If something like the Map Selector idea I mentioned here in the forums earlier this year were in place, then none of these maps would need to forever enter a forgotten grave...BUT each time a "voted out" map is seen again, the regulars would know that it reappeared for one of two reasons: either an authorized account (such as a MOD's) loaded the map manually, or whoever used their Map Selector to choose the voted out map has contributed to Brawl to earn the item that allowed them to load that map. :grin:
