    It's great to see Netpants keeping the community alive. Are there a whole lot of old Convoy players prowling around here? Good times.

    Hopefully, we'll have more good times in the future!

    Ah Convoy... sadly it's become more of a server-clearing map lately. It used to be DoubleConvoyFort until the server emptied every time it came up.

    I'm here. Always here forever. Doesn't matter what groups Fragment off of each other, I'm bound to be in one of them.

    Convoy was good times. Every time I tried to go back after FFN started up though I just didn't feel like it anymore. Sad times.

    well the problem with the convoy we had and why people left was due to the fact there were broken textures everywhere and it lagged out the map, would love to see it back if we could get a fix for it

    That isn't an issue anymore as I can't recall seeing any broken textures in v2... but it's TERRIBLE performance-wise. I usually get 50+FPS on most TF2 maps, convoy I get 25-30 tops, and that makes it feel really laggy.

    There's also a lot of "entity" traffic, here's one of my old screenshots from FFN:

    I'm game for running a convoy server if we have enough interest and can get an optimized/fixed version.

    I think the reason Convoy emptied the server was because randoms didn't want to download a custom map. That said, I'd love a 24/7 Convoy.

    As for the topic at hand, I joined shortly after the split, so I'm old, but not old old.

    I really love Convoy as well... it's one of my favorites maps, and I'm actually sad FFN never had one from the start.

    Well it made sense at the time. "That's fug's thing." And there's really only room for one actual convoy server. If you mix anything else in the rotation it's not the same to the people attracted to it and most who like other ctf maps don't like convoy. It's like DC, it has a certain crowd who want to just stay there the whole time.

    And to people talking about the FFN servers with Convoy, he meant Fug's 24/7. DC was pretty much to FFN what Convoy is to Fug and was to Old Fug.

    I remember the first time I saw LJ was in game. I was yelling at him for playing engie and building in the dirt while I had to hold the intel alone.
    * AG was serious Convoy engie.

    It feels like a sin, but I never really liked Convoy. Maybe it was because I didn't play it too much.
