Has anybody seen or played in any murderball style maps in TF2? I remember this quite fondly from the TFC days, but for some reason it never really seemed to catch on with the community. I always thought it really fun, and wish that it could get a TF2 makeover.

For those of you who don't remember or haven't seen it, here's a really good page that has lots of screens and descriptions of the map/play style itself: Murderball @ TFC

If anybody can attest to it being alive and well, please let me know!

Sorry for the close vote. I read this the first time, and got a very wrong impression of what was being asked. I'd take it back if I could. – Jeffrey Aug 12 '10 at 12:14
What was unclear? I can edit if it would help. – espais Aug 12 '10 at 12:17
I just got the impression that you've been playing murderball in TF2 as well as TFC - and just wanted a reaction from other people about it. I think your wording is probably fine - it's just early in the morning for me. – Jeffrey Aug 12 '10 at 12:21
Cant honestly say I've seen any TF2 maps, though I'm with you in that I miss the TFC maps that did exist. I'm not sure how balanced it would be with the current weapon/game mechanics however, compared to the original TFC setup. – TheQ Aug 12 '10 at 19:43
i would imagine that it could be balanced properly...i would imagine that the rooms would once again be sentry nests and covered in sticky bombs...personally i think it'd be fun hmm, maybe i should go fire up a map maker – espais Aug 13 '10 at 8:34

I personally haven't seen any servers hosting Murderball, but then again I've never really looked. Have you ever been to FPSBANANA? They have some maps under TF2 Misc/Other tagged as Murderball. Maybe you could start there and see if any ported over the functionality into a map. Otherwise try this Google search which returned some TF2 Murderball servers.

Yes, there is a Murderball for TF2: Murderball 2010! :) I have a 24/7 dedicated server running te latest version (mapname: murderball_2010_[version]. No capture points like other remakes, but a real soccerball you have to grab and hold to score team points.

@Messiah: do you have active players on your server? – espais Sep 28 '10 at 7:58
