Best Arena Server in TF2 History - No crits, limited spectators, 18 slots

Located in Chicago and therefore good for anyone in North America.

I am the actual server owner and operator so I can answer and address any complaints or suggestions you have.

We use mapchooser instead of a set rotation. Maps appearing on the polls are
arena_badlands
arena_granary
arena_lighthouse
arena_lumberyard
arena_offblast
arena_ravine
arena_sunder
arena_well

Basically we test custom maps extensively before putting them on the polls. Custom maps have to be playable by all classes with the potential of success without blatant overpowering at the same time before they go on the polls. We have a plethora of other custom maps as well accessible via rock the vote. If you want to download the custom maps, you can do so in game from fast hosting or from my hosting directly right now, www.firesargent.com/tf/maps/

Summary of server
- 9v9 when full, usually between 2v2 and 7v7 though
- All talk is on to allow trash talk / friendly banter like in all LL servers. IT DOES NOT PREVENT STRATEGY NO MATTER WHAT MISCONCEPTIONS YOU HAVE.
- We have a lot of mods so anyone spamming HLSS or more importantly, "ghosting" - speccing while dead to tell their alive teammates what to do - is not cool and will be dealt with. But the horror stories you hear about admin abuse on servers totally doesn't happen here. Any more.
- I've heard the skill level of the server is among the best for 24/7 arena servers. I can't truly confirm/deny but I will say I rack up kills ridiculously easily on Q Arena and not so much here.

So yeah come play since we kick ass.

oh, the comment about Q Arena was when it was 12v12. I heard it's smaller now, haven't played it since the change so I dunno if the level of play changed too.

Nothing like eGO. On average, it's probably the most skilled 'pub' I've played in.

Hilarious times have been had in there.

But some people are asses, though.

Q Arena is back up to 24 players, but they are having issues with the full teams plugin.
