    This map is far to large Josh, sorry, but the same is true for your earlier submission, I had a lot of complaints about that and had to remove it from rotation.

    Yeah, no problem, the biggest issues bar the size, in no particular order: Bison [They aren't liked in CTF], Massive empty spaces that are essentially death traps for knights that fall in them, areas of massive nothingness that were annoying to traverse. Those are the major issues. there were also complaints about the way the maps aesthetics, but I don't really see that as a huge issue.

    The placement of flags and Spawn was good.

    That's the feedback I got back from it. I hope that helps.

    If I recall correctly, points get deducted if the map was made BEFORE the contest.

    <3 Tho I think he also said flags couldn't be in the build phase.
    Do people prefer maps that are shmoooooooth like this'n or more riggedy ruggedy like SJD's?

    Disqualified; flags in or to close too the red barrier zone.

    Anyway, Tenshi asked me to upload some maps for her as the forums are not working correctly.

    All maps will be added into rotation tomorrow. [Except sharks, relocate the flags in the mouthes of the sharks and I'll put it in.]

    Nothing similar at all. Stop poisoning the well and play kag(maybe youll realise the issues with your maps).

    Say hi to castlehawthorne. Underground tunnel system that can be flooded, interesting tower war before mid, average mid, and a strong defend-able position right infront of the enemy's flag.

    Also say hi to umok

    He is a shy map with barely defendable mid, basically forcing players to take over the towers to really advance. There is also the mounds of dirt infront of the flag that your team gets to first but is more naturally built for the enemy.

    @SJD360 Congrats on your transformation :)

    cavesurf.png Cavesurf - I tried making a slightly bigger map, might be a bit on the large side now though.

    Looks interesting! I think you might want to put a lot more gold in there so people can make tunnels more easily, and not have to walk all that way.

    Yeah Im always a bit on the low side with the resources, if needed i can put some more in. Wonder if the middle isnt too clogged tho, hope to get some more feedback after its been played a few times :)

    hello, here are some maps that I created for my server from my old clan:

    I create these maps, for there are many ways to win the game.
    I mean by that there is the possibility to go through the air or just the earth for most
    Thing who changes a bit the gameplay, to just go straight, where players experience is more advantaged than the teamwork.

    I also like to include water in my maps, water is rarely used in this game, which is a shame because the naval battles can be funny, though I know it is not really liked so I always made sure that there is another way to go :)

    this one is based on a model of kag gather, very funny to play in the competitive scene let's see in a simple ctf

    [​IMG]

    let me know if the maps have a spawn problem or else. I did not retested them


    Have fun :)

    Nah visually they're good but they seem a little big for a 5v5 server I think

    Agreed, they are far too large.

    I'm not putting these in rotation, sorry Snake19.
