by rota is a medium-sized FFA-map in a modern tech theme
that makes excellent use of textures made by Sock, Speedy and Evillair.
The architecture also looks very refreshing and goes well with the
silver and blue textures, creating the dense atmosphere of fast fighting
in a future space station or starship. The map is made up of three
height levels connected via jumppads and stairs that allow for lots of
intense vertical action, especially due to the arena-style of the map.
Item placement is well done in general, though the lower level could
maybe use a stronger reason to travel there.
It may take you a few seconds to figure out where you are after
respawning in the beginning because all three levels look very similar,
but this is a very minor issue. Bots play well and grab everything
available on the map.
This map is a great piece of work that FFA players should get
immediately - and they'll keep it. Even if you're not that into FFA,
give this one a try and enjoy its atmosphere!
