cp_well - is it dead?

In my 1.5 years of playing this game now, I've only been playing the map cp_well, at most, 5 times. Since the introduction of the quickplay feature, never. I usually end up on Badlands (and sometimes, when I'm lucky, on Freight).

Is it just me being paranoid, or is this map indeed marked as "Oh god, abandon it and pretend it never existed" by Valve, like tc_hydro?

One could argue that I shouldn't use quickplay, but unfortunately whenever I try to look for such a server manually, I'm only getting 200+ ping servers, which I quite frankly can't play on.

So I wonder what's going on here, because I'm rather disappointed to only get Badlands as 5CP servers.

(Interesting side fact, I still get a ctf_well server from time to time.)

cp_well really has not aged well. It screams 2007 (opening gates, bad use of vertical space, annoying map design). Nothing better than running into the wires on middle point or not being able to go through the battlement windows

Yeah, it's one of the worst 5cp maps is why. Better than the CTF variant, but not really worth playing anymore thanks to much better alternatives existing.

cp_well is played semi-often, I believe it's ctf_well and arena in general that have been abandoned.

Well is up there on my favorite maps with Harvest and Granary. Too bad It's never played.

Aww, that's a damn shame. It'd be really interesting to me. After all, Dustbowl is still played everywhere, yet people consider it to be a wild spamfest and therefore also dead.

The only servers I ever see run well maps are randomizer servers.

It's funny how randomizer actually makes well matches MORE balanced.

My regular community features around 6 or so servers that run all Stock maps in rotation.
