Do people want a 'rats' map for CSGO?

A Forum Thread for Counter-Strike: Global Offensive

So, I've just booted up Hammer for the first time in years. 
The last time I worked on something was a standard de_map was 2013 and I didn't get very far. 

This time I stumbled upon the news that you can now scale props, and as a former rats-map-enthusiast, I got quite excited. 
I've already started 2 projects: A garage-type rats map and a Backyard-type rats map, but before putting all my time into it (no promises) I wanted to see if there was actually an audience for it, so:  Do people actually want rats-maps for CS:GO? 

I can tell you so far that they look beautiful with scaled up props. 

Thanks in advance for any responds.

    Rat maps are not that popular anymore, but a few people still play them and enjoy them.
    I would enjoy a new rat map to be honest, I kinda miss them.

    Thanks for the resposes so far! 

    It's nice to hear that some are still interested. I get that they are not as popular these days, propably especially since CS:GO has gone so competitive. 

    I doubt a rats map will ever make it on to the competetive playlists, but that doesn't mean it's not worth making one. 

    I will keep working on the backyeard-type rats-map for now, and maybe create a WiP, so people can follow/criticize/help and so on. 

    I'm a little rusty, and have very little experience with maps for CS:GO, though I've made a lot for CS:S... It's always good to have more perpsectives on your work.

    I'd personally love to see one, but I don't really play CS:GO that often.

    Yep, except that rats map are not so popular as they used to be. But I'd love to see a map out of it.

    Actually, has the popularity of rats maps really decreased, or just through the introduction of new people to CSGO (who want to play competitive), the percentage of people who play, not the real count that has fallen? Most probably. Because I see no reason rats gameplay to go extinct, its quite fun.

    So its still popular, just "dilluted".
