    Agree with everybody else. Stage 2-2 is horribly unbalanced towards red and blue loses almost every time in that stage.

    Played this map for the first time the other day and it is massively imbalanced, the map quite simply has too many choke points, at some points you can't even get the cart moving when you have 3 ubers. Map looks incredible. Plays terrible.

    Whatever man, fpsb's servers are default spawn 24 slot, and 32 slot with class restrictions. even on 24 slot, normal spawn, servers, people call the second stage the 'Blu Loses' stage. every single time second stage comes up, it seems like you need 3 staggered ubers to win and i already said they were default spawn, so I don't know why you are even bringing up instant spawn in the first place. engies build up in that crows nest behind the point to the left at second stage red spawn, and that can be hard to take out. red's spawn door is too close to the point. hoodoo has the lowest blu win rate out of all the pl maps We all know egypt is a horrible for blue team, and blu wins less on hoodoo that they do on egypt.

    Posted by Skitt George has a point, Noobberry. This map looks fairly incredible, but unfortunately the balance is so off that Blu only win roughly 20% of the time, according to Valves stats. (http://steampowered.com/status/tf2/tf2_stats.php)
    Hoodoo is balanced for 24 man, unmodded servers. (I have multiple sets of statistics from servers where balance is 50/50) but valve's stats are influenced by instant respawn servers, where I doubt blue would ever win without some kind of miracle. Please if you want to play hoodoo, don't play on instant respawn servers.

    The map favors red like a sonofabitch second points are nearly impossible, especially on the second stage. Looks great and all that, but the red v blue balance is terrible. Cool cart model and whatnot, but the balance issues overshadow everything else. People have started to call the second stage the 'BLU LOSES STAGE' This is normal spawn 32 slot, and 24 slot.
