    Just looking at this, and this order still isn't *quite* correct. The ancient top/bottom towers are swapped and should be:

    Ancient Bottom
    Ancient Top
    Bottom Tier 3
    Bottom Tier 2
    Bottom Tier 1
    Middle Tier 3
    Middle Tier 2
    Middle Tier 1
    Top Tier 3
    Top Tier 2
    Top Tier 1

    This makes it a little bit more aesthetically pleasing, with bottom always coming before top!
    Have you confirmed this experimentally? I trust you, so if you have, can you update the TF2 wiki here: It claims that Top and Bottom are opposite of yours.

      Yeah I have; I based my original implementation on that wiki page, and I noticed the ancient towers were incorrect. To be sure, I found two different matches (one each for dire and radiant) with one ancient tower remaining and verified the tower status by watching the replay in the dota2 client. What I posted is correct, and also matches dotabuff as well.

      I updated the wiki page.
