About this map:
This is a symmetrical 4 control point non-linear map. It takes place in a remote fortress in a desert right in between the middle of nowhere. It has a unique placement of 2 central control points accessible at any time through out the match, both of which are required to be captured before the final opposing team's control points can be captured. This map also favors all classes and styles of gameplay.
The arena like map design and layout is simple, and elegant to work very well for intensive competitive gameplay with as little as 6 players, and can erupt into ongoing chaotic battle at almost any point on the map on a full server of up to 24 – 32 players.
Unlike most traditional control point maps, which require teams always be focused on one specific area of the map at a time trying to push the other time back and move forward, this map requires the team to focus on all points of the map at all times, this creates allot of chaos and havoc to sweep across the entire map at any given time as it’s design encourages teams to circulate the map from start to end. Even with both central control points captured, either one of the 2 central control points can be reclaimed by the opposing team to block the other team from winning and rush to their base if it is unprotected for a winning capture. The outcome of the winner is always unpredictable until the last second of the final capture as the apposing teams can reclaim control of both points in a matter of seconds and completely turn around the match.
This map is recommended for anyone who enjoys chaotic matches, deathmatch-like gameplay, and favors specializations in any class or play style. Unique spots are specifically placed throughout the map to give class based rock-paper-scissor like advantages over other players based on class for both defensive and offensive tactics. Overall, the team who either executes the best coordinated strategy, or just simply does the most killing and reeking of havoc to the other team will successfully win the matches.
This is the first release version. Changes in newer versions may follow.
If anyone finds any issues, exploits, map glitches, or have any design suggestions, please email me at email@example.com. I welcome any feedback on the map.

About the Author:
This is my first map release for Team Fortress 2. I have a deep background in mapping and creating mods for other FPS games such as Halo CE, Halo 2, and Unreal Tournament 2004. I specialize mostly in 3d modeling and programming but mapping as always been something I enjoyed. Learning to map for the Source engine and Team Fortress 2 in the past 3 weeks prior to release of this map has been a great experience. Check out most of my creations at www.halomaps.org.
Pros: Great gameplay, unique layout. Fun.
Cons: With a full 24 person server, and fairly good players, the map is always stalemated.
Improvements: Cant put my finger on it, something to make the map more "winnable" with good players.
Notes: Thanks for including a stalemate (suddendeath) timer. I wish more maps did this.
I have played this map a few times on my server. The verbal feedback I get is either they really like it or they somewhat like it. This is not one of those maps that you upload then after about 5 min. of game play people are screaming change the map.
Pros:I like the crescent shape style of the map and the game play is fun when you have more than 10 people on it.
Cons: None really just not as much fun to play unless you have more than 10 people on your server.
I Think you did a good job, there are some kinks but you can work them out. Also, 1 Thing, i dont like the heavy red brick texture on the wall, if you could change that ;)
Also, I miss the red vs blue thingy a bit. But you did a very good job man.
We are playing on it for a few days now, so i'm giving the feedback :
Pros:fun and nervous gameplay
Cons: some classes are really advantaged sniper and pyro for instance/maybe less complicated design of the second TP and more protection for spawn exit from the third.
"Please add a round timer, as I cannot upload this map without it having one, let me know when and if you so so I may add it, looks fun though"
It does have a round timer. It's set to 10 minutes. The 2 control points only add 30 seconds when captured.
