This is a pretty good designed map, but you have taken something from ut2k3

Great, 3 player free for all is great with your real mates, or your favourite bots. The only point is that they don't go for the Mega health, but otherwise good job Mr. Bal

Okay, but not really that great...

Sorry, just a 6...

Not really a 'Bal'-fan...

This map is really fun, but there's a HUGE flaw which makes 1on1 extremely not fun. If you get rail and rl, all you have to do is camp RA the entire game. Just take out rail and snipe the person from RA and if they get close guard with RL. Way too easy to get through the game without dying.

i really like the texturing and layout but gameflow isn't coming up for me as it did in bal3dm3 :/

Why is it that people seem to believe that large maps can be duel maps? Plus the GL sux. not as good as baldm3

Great texturing as usual here but for duel, it doesn't fit the bill. FFA is certainly much fun but the item placement seems a little sketchy :/

Not bad Bal, but you've done better!

?! No way is this a duel map.

Deafening ambient sounds; TWO GLs, and too many places you can't bunny through without hitting your head and being stopped cold.

It's a nice FFA map, but I can't imagine playing a 1v1 on it.

Great map made by a great mapper, but... using LDBST textures make me feel like playing a different version of that level. :-(

Oops typo there:

This is what I meant:

"the flow is not right for duels"

I wouldnt say that the flow is right for duels. The PG needs to be removed, and some doorways need to be made higher.

Dont get me wrong, this is a fantastic piece of work, Bal. Pat yourself on the back - many of us would be hard pressed to create a level of this calibre.

However, a FFA level is what this is, not a duel level.

7 from me.

Yes Bal, here you are. Once doing a great map, people expect your next to be even better, everytime!

No prob for you I hope ;)

Excellent level with some (minor) flaws.

I was a bit dissapointed with this map. Sure, it looks great, but the layout is average at best for 1v1 matches. Its not a bad map, i just expeceted a little more from a guy like bal (bal3dm3 is one of the best maps ive ever played)

Bal's well aware of how much I enjoy his work, so I'll keep this brief.

Outside of the one little error, this map is incredible. It should be in rotation on every server.

It's a nice map, but the item placement and layout don't promote a competative 1v1 game, which is really unfortunate.

first of all, thanks for the comments, happy some of u like how this plays

OfF3nSiV3, uh, this map is like any other q3 map, its a pk3 that u put in ur baseq3 folder... i really dunno why ur getting a .bsp, where did u d/l it from??

And Knight Cloud, no, its a q3 level, but the original layout comes from a q1 map i made a long time ago.

Thanks again to Tig for the review, and his great work at LvL =)

it is not only good for 1on1 or small ffa, it also works great for larger games (I played that one with 8 players!!!)...

great work (once again)...

GS: if this map is a 7, I need to change my rate for gs3dm4 :D

This map kicks ass! Very fast with 4 or more players. 1vs1 games are great, with the railgun doing some ownage! Great work!

This map is in rotation at Burial Grounds

GrindSpire: wow, I loved this map and found 1on1's excellent, much better than Golconda (bal3dm2). A 3 player game was also great. R/jumping about the map can really throw an opponent off.

Bloody excellent if you liked baldm6 - scrap metal. Odd enough, I disliked that q1 level and I have found the q3 final release of this level to be very very playable (and looks great, which counts).

Hmmmm.... I'm not a big fan of this map, it's a a nice map, but in my opinion that's it, nothing more. Just a nice map.

Definitely Bal's weakest Q3 work. A 7 from me.
