Map Overview
Watergate overview.png
El mapa esta ambientado en una fábrica de cervezas y los edificios que lo rodean durante una invasión alienígena. Mientras los alienígenas atacan nuestros mercenarios se refugian en los bares durante el apocalipsis mundial hasta que, con la ayuda de la ciencia, ¡descubren que los alienígenas no disfrutan de beber cerveza! Ellos han desarrollado un plan de acción y están listos para ponerlo en marcha..
— Descripción en la Workshop de Steam

Watergate es un mapa creado por la comunidad ambientado en un pueblo costero durante una invasión alienígena y cuenta con un modo de juego exclusivo para el mapa llamado Aniquilación.

Watergate ganó el segundo lugar en el 11vo Gran Concurso de Mapas del 2014 realizado por TF2Maps.net, titulado "Mercs vs Aliens".

Jugabilidad

La meta de cada equipo es recolectar cerveza que los enemigos asesinados dejan caer al morir y depositar dichos items en un OVNI que se encuentra en el centro del mapa para emborracharlo y anotar puntos. Al morir, cada jugador deja caer una cerveza mas todas las cervezas que haya recolectado(las que se muestran sobre su cabeza y en su respectiva HUD), las cuales pueden ser recogidas por los jugadores de ambos equipos. El jugador con mas cervezas en cada equipo (a excepción de los Spy) ademas se vuelve "lider", lo que le permite regenerar salúd y munición para si mismo y los que le rodeen (con la misma capacidad que un Dispenser de nivel 1) al mismo tiempo que les asigna un contorno visible a traves de las paredes que puede ser visto por ambos equipos. Las cervezas caeran al suelo si un jugador intenta llevarlas a un resupply area, pero pueden ser abandonadas manualmente presionando el botón para dejar caer objetos (Tecla predeterminada: Tecla+L).

Para anotar, los jugadores deben depositar las cervezas recolectadas en un OVNI ubicado en el centro del mapa, el cual aparece cada 52 segundos y se mueve lentamente alrededor del area con un rayo tractór, antes de moverse hacia el límite del mapa para retirarse despues de que hayan transcurrido 34 segundos. Mientras esten bajo los efectos del rayo del OVNI, los jugadores pueden moverse libremente como si estuvieran nadando en el agua y las cervezas que hayan recolectado seran depositadas gradualmente en el OVNI para ser añadidas al puntaje de sus respectivos equipos. Los jugadores pueden ademas impedir que los jugadores del equipo rival depositen sus cervezas y anoten entrando en el rayo del OVNI.

Al agregar mas y mas cervezas en el OVNI, se volvera mas y mas ebrio, tambaleandose visiblemente cada vez mas mientras mas alto sea el puntaje de cada equipo. Una vez que uno de los equipos alcanza la meta para ganar una partida(el numero de puntos necesario para ganar es proporcional al numero de jugadores al inicio de la ronda) se alejara volando erráticamente hasta chocar con la nave nodriza que se encuentra a la distancia, destruyendola y marcando la victoria para ese equipo.

Locations

Alleys

  • Open Alley: The team oriented alleys are open areas with multiple different paths to take. From the catwalk is the path to one of the gatehouses. Underneath the catwalk is the path to the interior corridors. Straight ahead is the canal.
  • Dropoff: The path to the canal drop down to the bottom floor. To the side is a catwalk into one of the gatehouses that can be accessed by jumping from the trashbags.
  • Central Corridors: Through a small storage room is a small corridor that connects to the central catwalks, the rooftop bar, and a dropoff into one of the cellars.
  • Gatehouse: The gatehouses overlook the UFO spawn with windows that can serve as vantage points. On the second floor are medium health & ammo kits.

Basements

  • Cellars: The team oriented cellars lead to the canal, either from the outside structures, or the central sewer.
  • Sewers: Down the stairs is a sewer path that leads to the canal. Down in the path is a small health and ammo kit.

Central Canal

  • Dilapidated Boat: In the center of the canal is a stationary boat containing a max health kit.
  • Central Sewer: The central sewer has a catwalk that leads to the overhead catwalks. On the catwalk is a lone medium ammo kit.
  • Rooftop Bar: The rooftop bar overlooks the whole canal and connects to the team oriented sides. The bar contains two small ammo kits and one small health kit.
  • Overhead Catwalks: Underneath the bar are catwalks overlooking the map. In the center is a medium health kit.
  • UFO: The UFO spawns periodically at the end of the canal near the gatehouses. It slowly flies over the canal and stops at the rooftop bar before flying out of the map. While it is flying overhead it's tractor beam will activate. When inside the tractor beam, players can fly into the air is if they were swimming.

Historial de Cambios

rc4 (september 8th, 2015):
  • Clouds around mothership
  • Remade assorted map models
  • Raised sand in sewer and added small healthpack
  • Optimised collision mesh of the boat to be less arbitrary
  • Put teleporter-nobuilds on previously trappable surfaces

rc3 (august 27th, 2015):

  • New mothership model with associated particle effects!
  • Optimised areaportal locations (portal rendering)
  • Optimised occluder locations (prop rendering)
  • Added LODs & fades to props (poly rendering)
  • Made the UFO timer more obvious of its purpose
  • Fixed crash relating to low model quality
  • Fixed players getting stuck at the top of the UFO beam

rc2 (july 17th, 2015):

  • A barricade has been added to the dropdown inbetween the crane and window buildings.
  • The UFO has been given a neutral outline when it appears in the area which helps with goal recognition.
  • We've spruced up the spawn with some juice.. and beer taps, and better chalkboard textures.
  • Bright light added to attract attention to the tower route.
  • A small fence has been added onto the raised spawn battlements to block a potentially powerful sightline to the spawn room door.
  • The middle bridge has been widened a bit.
  • The crane building upper floor has been given more light so you can see the silhouettes of Snipers easier.
  • Patch added under healthpack.
  • Patch added under healthpack, critical changes these.

b10 (july 3rd, 2015):

  • We've changed the UFO beam water trigger from the halloween Jarate condition to a plugin-based "you're now in water" mechanic, which allows Pyro flames and sounds to be played in the beam uninterrupted while still allowing good player movement.
  • We've spruced up the bottom sewer to mid connectors with better detail.
  • More detail to the insides of the crane buildings also.
  • Cool new map image and text for the chalkboard and the loading screen!
  • We've given some more light contrast around important locations on Red side to make it easier to notice these places and to make the area less boring to look at.
  • We've fixed a bug that allowed players to contest beer deposits while being below the tower platform. We've also re-added the gentle-fall trigger_push from the UFO beam arriving at the tower.
  • The speed of the UFO flying past the map has been reduced from 100 hu/s to 70 hu/s, making it last about 11 extra seconds in the map. This makes it easier to hop into the beam if you notice its entry late, or to catch up to it as it scrolls past the map.
  • Steps have been added to these middle side platforms.
  • Getting onto the boat has become easier: it's been lowered into the sand, the animation has become static (it used to sway), and there are boxes with ladders (all clipped nicely) leading onto the platform.
  • There's a new bottle pickup model and collision mesh (old collision mesh was butts so it sometimes didn't work when it should have).
  • And we've added some more details to spawn!

Errores

  • Occasionally when loading the map, certain roof textures and the beer symbol on the HUD will not load.
  • Beer pickups do not become invisible when Spies are cloaked.
  • Beer pickups cannot be collected if a player is equipped with the Rocket Jumper or Sticky Jumper.

Curiosidades

  • The map was inspired by the 2012 video game Dishonored, in particular the Draper's Ward portion from the Brigmore Witches downloadable content.[2]
  • There are several references to Dishonored and Les Misérables.
    • Various Whale Bone Charms and the Lacking Moral Fiber Mask can be found hidden in a box in the corner of the central sewer drain.
    • Another Whale Bone Charm can be found perched on the top of the demolished wall on the uppermost floor of the brewery.
    • Whale Bone charms can also be found on the slanted roofs near the main RED and BLU spawn entrances
    • Wall graffiti "DOOM BE UPON US" and "THE END IS NIGH" resembles those found in Dishonored.
    • The number "24601" can be found printed on the wall next to a barrel underneath the staircase by the secondary RED spawn entrance.
  • The dilapidated boat's name is the King Mary as opposed to the Queen Mary.
  • An Ap-Sap can be found while noclipping into the crates by BLU's secondary spawn entrance. It will speak voicelines when hit.
  • In each team's spawn is a passed out Demoman. Next to him is a beer spill that if stepped on will cause the player to slip forward, similar to the banana peel from Mannhattan.
  • The voice that announces progress and which team is in the UFO's beam was made using the voice WillFromAfar from the site Acapela group.com.
