koth_product_rcx is the most recent version of koth_product, formerly known as koth_viaduct_pro. This map is a competitive version of koth_viaduct, a stock TF2 map.
Product was created from the original Viaduct map, without snow to maximize performance and with improved mechanics to balance it in competitive play. The map has gone through many iterations in its lifetime and is still actively supported and updated by the mappers.
The map was posted onto the Steam Team Fortress 2 Map Workshop the day after the Map Workshop had opened for Team Fortress 2. The submission of the map caused the renaming of the map in fear that Valve may not accept the map as the name would be too similar to the stock map.
Usage in competitive
koth_product is used commonly in Highlander, 6v6 and 4v4. This map is the most common King of the Hill map in 6v6, though other maps such as Coalplant / Ashville are sometimes played. In 6v6 teams are often seen running full time sniper on this map because the sight lines and terrain on the map offer the class an advantage not seen in other maps. Heavy is also used sometimes to deny enemy team bombers.
