    Very amazing map with some work. Defending 2nd cp defenders can really only sit on cp with backs to wall or hang out on top of stairs. I say push the stone wall back at cp. Carve into the rock to open it up and add some things. Give another path for attackers to choose. At the top of the stairs if you open the left and add a lil walkway. It can give another angle for defenders so they aren't all stuck in the corner. The middle cp is very cramped and lacks paths. The only way to cross to other side is over the point on ground lvl or above on pipe. Open up the middle a lot and add some paths.

    There is a bug which allows a demoman to jump up and stand on nothing in a certain area. http://picasaweb.google.com/lh/photo/LWNauIUcMznGUwPH9wB6RA?feat=directlink Here is a screenshot of the area, He is standing there, and has room to walk around.

    I still think the respawns arent in best places. you should spawn at the 2nd cp once its capped so the battle is around the middle cp, at moment its such a long walk from cp1 to cp3 that it gets dull It's a very nice map but it's let down by respawns imo. teams should start out now only owning one cp each, then cap the 2ns and spawn there from now on and fight for 3rd

    Pros: Nice layout. Map looks great. Cons: None that I can tell immediately. Notes: I'm going to try the map out on my server and see what people think. I'm not a huge fan of these types of maps, but this is well laid out. Let me know if you release another version.

    Nice map, plays like granary. could do with more signs to cps the main issue i think is the forward respawn is unbalanced, whoever gets middle cp starts so far ahead of the other side they will never lose the middle cp again again

    Had a great time playing this on our server during our weekly "Map Test Night" event. It's now in our regular map rotation list. Initial response was split 50/50 but it's been growing on the regulars the past couple of days. Great work.

    The problem is with your decompiler. I've used nodraw on pretty much every surface the player can't see (my next beta will have more nodraws for the areas I missed).

    Ok it might just be the decompiler i used but when i opened it up to take a look i noticewd one thing that bothers me severely there is not one single nodraw texture used period if this isnt just my compiler then you seriously need to go back and fix that, it shouold have been done in the first place otherwise great brushwork and horrible optimizing

    Dude, nice map but some really REALLY not forgivable things: Blue cp: a red light behind the fence :x The tapers on the wall on the last screenshot lol. Last screenshot looks a bit rushed, since the rest looks so beautifull :(
