My only complaint about this gamemode is the fortnite dome. I understand the reason for having it, but I feel like it can get more annoying then helpfully at times. I know removing it is probably not an option, but what if the dome moves slower toward the center of the map?
Some maps already had center of dome moved to a more reasonable spot, usually at lower floor flat area everyone tends to be at, without having any walkable space above center of dome. Mind telling which maps could have center somewhere else?

Is there a place to look at all the map names? I dont remeber each one exactly.

While we are talking about the dome, can we change its color, make it a little more opaque or otherwise increase its visibility? Maybe I'm alone with this problem but I am colorblind and can barely see that stupid dome if the map is too bright

IMO one hale either should be reworked or just removed: Demopan.
I have nothing serious against this hale. He is just bland.

We already have four Demoman hales and Demopan is the only one that doesn't have anything unique about him to bring to the table. He is just a demoknight with super jump and an extended charge that gives him crits even though he can already 1-2 shot every class without it.

It's still more balanced than his old rage where he blinds everyone with trade request spam, but there isn't really anything aside from super jump that separates him from your average demoknight
Totally not late to this reply.

I made 2 VSH pull requests, allowing to jump during charge and instakill charge bash, hopefully that helps the rage a bit more, but i get a feeling sentry will still be a problem.

already mentioned this in a mutual discord with you but yeah, a fleshed out version of this idea would be adding a prefix that stops the shield from breaking just making it act like a normal shield instead of protecting you from one hit whilst you have the clad equipped making "demoknight tf2" a thing in vsh (although demoknight is already diet scout atm).

I had an idea recently as a way to rework the Winstreak system. As of now it's very grindy and almost impossible (unless for great players) to go above 8+ WS. The winstreak system is really more of a chore, you fail once, you go back at the bottom.
So i thought of this:

- Winstreak system removed
- Add a new challenge coin (like the DB challenge one) where you CHOOSE your challenge, which will each give a badge (to replace the WS ones). You can choose :
- To remove a certain chunk of your HP (3 types of difficulties, for example easy : 10% Medium : 25% Hard : 40%
- A no rage mode
(Will add more if i think of new stuff)

I also think the coin should be less expensive than the DB challenge one as it would have more use. I think having it as a coin makes it so you actually choose what you want to challenge yourself with rather than "oh i'll save my WS until i get a map where i can actually win". I spent 3 months saving my 8 WS because of that.

I believe there were old murmurs about someone wanting a universal challenge coin, but it was tossed due to handicapping the team as a whole, but this seems like it could be reasonable
