I'll make it short: It is hard (for me) to find players for melee custom maps. I think we have a lot of great maps, and I want to play on them. Also, I think it might be difficult fo mappers to find someone to play there maps, to get feedback.
The Solution: The "MeleeMapTesting" Chatchannel. Meet other players who are interested in melee maps beyond standard ladder maps.
I'll be there as often as possible. =)
