So we want to bring Team Fortress to AvP2. It shouldn't be too difficult, all of the weapons we need are already in AvP2, and configuring armor and run speeds and whatnot isn't too hard. What we need, however, is input on how this should go down, and modders to make the more difficult things happen, like possibly adding new weapons and more importantly, new GAME MODES, like Capture the Flag or Assault, things that teams do that aren't Team Deathmatch. However, this is AvP2 Fortress, so everything should have an AvP2 twist to it. Like Preds and Aliens on the teams realistically, but not whorishly. No Predator rocket-launcher guys, for example, but a Predator as the Spy, a class that's supposed to cloak and primarily use a knife anyway. -- SMID
We went on with implementing lobbies for our maps and added a warning.

If you remember one of our earlier discussions, we decided to went on and implement lobbies for our map. The two main benefits we were aiming were getting rid of spawn killing, and adding a delay between player death and respawn in the map (thus making death a penalty). Initially we changed only "Resin Pit" and "Crusader". Since the concept proved good, Windebieste took all the maps he made and decided to add the feature in.
For now just 'Facing Fortresses' joins the club of maps that have a lobby. All maps will follow this direction though. For all AvP2TF testers, I have a warning/advice for you.
This type of warning, when your own flag is not in your base, was a MUST IMPLEMENT feature for quite some time. We finally added it, with a little bonus: when the flag is returned to your base, you and your team also hear an audio notification. This way, if your team has the enemy flag, the flag carrier will now that now it's a god time to exit its hideout and score a capture.
Last, but not least: our skin contest has just 11 days to go! Don't forget to send in your submissions of Tamiko skins before 1st of September to win one of the two Iron Grip: Warlord serial numbers that we have as prizes!
