There’s a new TF2 map out, Koth_King, set in the back alleys of a Chinese city.  I explored it a bit alone— it’s really pretty.  I’ve only had one chance to play it, and it’s a hell of a pyro map.

But the important question, as I’m sure you’ll agree, is, What do all the Chinese signs say?  Let’s find out!

Honk if you love Hóngsè

It’s cool that the mapmaker did it right— all the shop signs make sense:

The fact that they translate ‘Reliable Excavation [&] Destruction’ makes me think there’s an equivalent sign ‘Builders League United’, but when I was grabbing screenshots I assumed that the red and blue signs were identical.  (Many are— e.g there are blue signs reading ‘Red Hotel’.)
