    For those of you who enjoy playing Mann vs Machine mode, there is a new batch of community maps that take the game to a new level! Because these maps are not official, you can play for free.



    There are a total of 6 maps in this collection, each featuring 6 or 7 waves, for a total of 41 waves. If you complete every wave of every map, you get a genuine badge! These maps are really well made but also really challenging too. Seriously, the difficulty goes up to 11 here.

    Bad news and good news. The bad news is that these servers are not integrated by Valve into the game so finding an open game is really hard right now. You can see the list of servers here http://98.114.174.78:27000/TitaniumTank/Servers Joining now is a matter of refreshing and hoping you find an open slot. Be prepared to wait a long time. This also means that (at least for now) joining as a group is not possible. There has been mentions of reserved servers for groups of VVIPs but I wouldn't get my hopes up on getting access any time soon.

    The good news is that these servers automatically keep track of your progress for each individual wave. You can join and leave as you want and you don't have to play the entire 6 or 7 wave missions all in one game. The other good news is that the makers have removed the April 1 deadline for getting the completion badge. The servers will be up as long as people are still playing on them. Valve has said there might be temporary trouble in getting badges to everyone who finishes, but it should be fixed on the next update.

    Who knows, maybe Valve will makes these maps official and breathe some new life into what has been a very very stale MvM scene!

    I'd be curious what it would take to convert our fun server instance to something like this... Personally, I don't think I've ever connected to that with more than a half dozen people over the months. Not only might this be more useful, it might be a good outreach to the community. And we could probably reserve slots or something for members, too, which would eliminate that wait.

    This looks awesome! Haven't really touched MvM in years. Poor mode hasn't been touched in years.

    Would love to play it, but it would probably be a nightmare to complete solo queuing in the servers.

    If we could someone queue together as a group I'd be in! Together we could probably power through the missions in an evening.

    Edit: phrasing. Ugh, been butchering my words.

    A few others have asked the map makers about donating servers to ease overcrowding. Unfortunately they are not comfortable doing it because because of the information sharing required and the fact that Valve is giving out the completion badge.

    Looks like our only chance (right now) to play it as a group is joining the long time for a reserved server spot, or playing really early or late.

    So is there anyway we can set up our own server?

    I’ve play d on our server in mvm mode several years ago. Not sure if it’s possible or not today. Interesting note, gameme stats counted when we were playing and I believe we received some backlash from the stat jockeys. If we still have the comp server maybe we could get Gary to look into it.
