Not sure where to post this but I figured I'd throw this out here, already told a few of you guys but there are two specific maps that are very useful for certain classes to train on.
For people playing:
Soldier, Scout, Demo, Sniper
Find a server running:
This map allows you to do 1v1's against whatever class you want on certain areas of certain maps. It is EXTREMELY useful, and will really help you perform better if you get better at these.

For people playing:
Spy, Pyro, Heavy, Medic, Engineer (these ones less as much but can still practice here)
Download and play this server by yourself:

This map allows you a certain type of training, but sadly you have to cater it to what you feel you're weak on. Spy can practice trick stabs and Pyro can practice blowbacks are both huge benefits, while the rest can just practice killing I suppose. Most of all though is this is a great map to practice Air Strafing if you guys don't know how to yet, I'd be glad to help :D.

I would strongly suggest everyone check out at least one of these maps if not both, because they really help ease the learning curve of competitive gaming.

Yeah Walt and I have been playing on the MGE servers, great practice to warm you up or to train your classes. It helps me so much as soldier since I can barely airshot at the moment.

Also air strafing is something all of us should know. I am sure a few people like myself know how to do it from CSS or other games, but when pyros spam airblast or soldiers or demos know you up we should all know how to get out of that.

TL:DR - Good post, everyone learn to air strafe pl0x :D

Thanks for the suggestions Arch! I'm stoked to try the mge_training_v7 map now! :D

I agree with what was already said about tr_walkway_rc2 as well. I always go there to practice stabbing as Spy and it's also helped me with airblasting as Pyro. Highly recommended.

I'll have to practice air strafing on it now too. I'm not that great since I always have a tendency to press W in the air and I fail at doing rocket jumps properly. Lol.

Since we're all sharing training maps, I also want to recommend giving tr_aim a try. It's a simple map that's self-explanatory. But I've been usually it more lately and it's helped me to improve my aim with the ambassador quite a bit.

The mge servers help so much, you will see an instant increase in your skill level after just a few matches, highly recommend!
