This is a heck of an addictive tourney map! Haven't tried the FFA version but this is such a well conencted, superbly thought map geared fully towards gameplay. It's very small so nowhere to hide... which only pumps up the tension! A keeper!

wow not entered, you are such a gutless pos yourself. Posting anonymous, and bringing the ratings of these maps down as low as you can? I assume your map got a bad rating here or something? Loser!

Nice map, just a little bit too small for me.

But fun :)

uuhhm: Guessed it in one. :) This is the smaller (tourney) version of the FFA map.

SH: Basically, any textures that involve layered effects of some kind (often transparency).

I like this version as well, but not as much. It has really intense, fast play, and I have to be in a certain kinda nail-biting mood to really enjoy it--it's usually just too small for me (but that's totally subjective).

took me a half an hour to dl this map. was it worth it? sure, but the lower level was kind of tight. but it works :)

i really liked the mega area, and was cool to rocket jump off the pad and try to scan for the bot. cool tricks and the whole nine, 9

What are "dual pass textures"?

Why is the same level reviewed twice? Or is this a different version??

This is fast, smooth action at its finest. Feels like a Quake level more than a Q3 map--and that's a good thing! :D

"Item placement was obviously well thought out way in advance.."'s funny you should say that. Item placement is NOTHING like it was in the begining. changed quite a bit from initial beta testing. This is my new favorite tourney map. sure, it's small...but the action is unbeatable IMO. I've had some of my favorite 1v1's on this map....all during beta! hahaha! Awesome map jax!

This was fun as a tourney or FFA. Nice simple texturing, nothing special but well done. Item placement was obviously well thought out way in advance, it's the high point of the level. One complait would be the very small size of the level; there's never much wondering where your opponent is because they're almost always withing the audible range. Anyways, it gets a 9, great stuff!

Lots of cool jumps on this baby. WEAT even made an AVI on possible trick jumps for this map. Awesome use of standard ID textures here making for a small file size. Jax also avoided using dual pass textures to make this baby fast and smooth. Check out the detail work on the walls of the pit and the lava/block floor.
