This map just gets better, first time I ever seen a map where the the BFG's actually balances the map!
TRIED AGAIN WITH EIGHT AFTER JOBAR'S COMMENTS AND WOW! IT MAY NOT BE THE BEST LOOKING MAP BUT IT'S ONE OF THE BEST TO PLAY!
THANKS FOR THE TIPS JOBAR, I GOT SOME YOU MIGHT NOT HAVE THOUGHT OF.
THE DEFENDER WASTES AMMO UNTIL HE/SHE SWITCHS TO GAUNTLET. TRIGGERS THE DOORS TO THE ROOF AND DEFENDS, I FOUND THIS TO BE VERY AFFECTIVE DUE TO THE CLOSE QUARTERS.
ALSO KEEP YOUR TOWER MANNED AT ALL TIMES AND CONSERVE BFG AMMO TO USE IN CO-ORDINATION WITH YOUR TEAM MATES ATTACK, AFTER ALL KILLING ANYONE WILL RESPAWN THEM BACK INSIDE THE FLAG SHIP OR ONE STEP OFF, USING THE BFG AT THE RIGHT TIME CAN BUY THOSE VAULABLE SECONDS - ESP WHEN YOUR ENEMY KILL THEMSELVES SO THEY CAN GET BACK AND DEFEND.
HEY DEEK! REDO THAT LIGHTING PLEASE, PRETTY PLEASE......
Let me give you an idea of what this map is about:
First to get to the opersite Flag you must set off a trigger inside the opersite docked ship, a siren lets you and your opponents know that the second trigger is no longer blocked (button located in front and to the right of each ship). Then there are three ways to reach that button under fire, from the docked ship, Tower and also jumping from the ship off the platform directly next to the button (my favorite). This trigger opens the doors to the building (below the flag ship), Teleport to the Flag ship and operate another timed button, (the second button by the way operates the main door in the building below, took us a while to figure this one out) Jump onto the roof and retrieve the Flag.
Sounds easy huh? Nope. 8 of us got together to try a number of capture the Flag maps and after trying this map, we played no others for the rest of the weekend!
The secret is to maintain control of your tower (BFG).
Tips: Trigger the first button inside the Flag ship before the opponents enter so they must survive 25 seconds before it resets (devious! I love it!).
Also use the second button to give easy access for your players into the building below the Flag ship (especially the Flag carrier).
Lighting, bots and a number of smaller oddities are the only thing stopping us from giving this a 10.
This is a Team map well thought out, try it with your mates.
