To: the author of ff_congestus && FF developers

So I was giving FF a shot, as most old-timers are, and couldn't help but stumble across a map titled ff_congestus.

I just want to say congrats on the absolute sick port of Congestus. I'm honored that someone would even port my map, let alone do it with skill and ability. Very cool. Looks great - much better than the original and probably better than anything I could do.

Hard to think that it was 6 years ago when I made that map. I was still in high school!

Anyways, this is a tribute to a community that has been around and been a part of my life since I was a teenager. Seriously, how cool is it to not play any fortress game for almost two years and come back and see this?

Congrats Clover on the great map, whoever you are.

Congrats also to the FF developers, your efforts are heartfelt and the result has been a new fortress addiction for me for the last week. Here's to hoping it sticks!

This is the kind of person we need. A great mapper, and a great player too I'm sure! Advertise to any clanmates and get em playing too, our community will slowly grow.

Ya, I too have to thank the original map maker for such an ass kicking map like congestus.

My all time favorite map in TFC, countless hours played on it.

And a shout out to shadow who ported it, I've finally got to play it, and that map is rockin. I don't know what everyone else's favorite little change was, but mine was those battlement windows being opened up on each side, so you can conc in and out of them, without having to try and conc through a window

Cheers,
Hammock

Thank you for both making the original Congestus(which I absolutely LOVE!!! And pulled off a nasty spy trick on.....much to the chagrin of my (then) clan...) AND for not having a cow over someone re-making it without your permission!!! Major Kudo's to you for an inventive, fun, and damned addictive map! I hope to see you on a server sometime, either on my team, or the other.

Hey, I did get his permission a while ago, after him discovering me making it without his permission.

Of course, (addressing danger now) I included you in all the credits! I'm glad you approve of the remake, I tried my best!

Thank you for making that wonderful map. I've spent many nights on both Axl's TFC and Impulse TFC, with those oldies, playing that map. Once again, thank you for making that possible.

Thank you thank you thank you! This map is, probably, my favorite map to both pub and league in.
