    I'm dumb and don't know tiers of maps on the hard server so was curious if the map name could display the tier to go along during map selection similarly to the way it is on source.

    This is a tricky one to do because while it's fairly trivial to add the feature, the actual tier system that people use in surf is arbitrary and not really wholly representative of how difficult a map actually is. Ideally we want a way to better represent a maps difficulty and what it actually features instead of "this is arbitrary difficult 6"

    Agree would be nice to identify the easier maps from the hard on Hard, maybe colour groupings or so on the vote screen, green orange red etc.

    Color would be nice.

    Again do-able, but doesn't really represent what the community thinks. That said, I think I have a general idea of what can be done!

    Well colours I was thinking tier 2-3 is green, 4 is orange and anything 5 or above is red, which can be loosely applied rather than set "this is tier x". Could colour the white popularity bar we don't use. But if you have any idea of how it can be done then sounds good!
