I second this.

 

Site UI does allow selecting any map — "Please do not host troll maps." — Ok.

I'm starting to think hosting a "unpopular map" for HL is a no-go. Unless it's a map used by a league for a questionable reason, it will just take up the only HL space possible and prevent another lobby with a more common map starting. Might as well make this a donators-only feature and not count it toward the daily limit at this point. And even then people would prefer the second choice to be badwater or upward. 

 

I'm not opposed to hosting unpopular maps, but the community can get very conservative when it comes to these things. I'd love if there was more room allowed for experimentation, alas, even hosting a cp_edifice lobby would probably just be no one joining and a swarm of messages saying "close this and open badwater" despite the fact the map having potential

 

I guess HL is dying is the problem, and until we can get the format back to living conditions, it's probably best to leave the unpopular maps to 6v6 where map creators tend to get quite creative
