    Very ugly map in my opinion. The displacements in the 3d skybox are copied and pasted from badlands. The map isn't balanced all that well and needs a lot of work.

    Pros: Great layout, most of the fight takes place in the middle like a pl map should. Many different routes outside of the normal linear cart path. Cons/Improvements: Too easy for a Blu engineer to walk behind Red and start building behind them (around the third-fourth point). Last point lacks secure SG locations that can easily be taken out without an uber or little to no effort at all. Last Red spawn can easily be locked down with just a few Blu players. I'd suggest a third upstairs (upper level) respawn exit. Notes: I know this is an older map but a lot of people I know really enjoy it and I hope to see a final one day. The map plays great but that last point just seems to need a little more touch to it.

    Pros: Looks amazing, excellent brushwork. Balanced gameplay, the use of height is probably the best I'v ever seen. Makes for lots of good sentry spots, but there is always an obvious path to take them out. Cons: none Improvements: none Notes: Wow what a great map. Played in a Highlander match last night, everyone loved it. This is def going into our Highlander rotation, easily one of the best out there. Its hard to explain, but there is a lot of exciting chokes in this map.

    Great up, but not enough servers run it. I find only wanting to play the last point no matter what team. I just do not like the other areas, change them abit or redo or something because the last point is really fun and works great.

    Pros: Excellent outdoor atmosphere. Large locations and well done displacement work make this map a joy to play. Cons: Not enough servers run it. Improvements: A personal preference, but I find a few areas to be a bit dark. Don't rely on the environment light to hit every spot.

    Pros: Looks fantastic, plays fantastic. It's certainly of a similar if not higher quality map than badwater. Cons: Some areas near the final area lack detail, and there are some nagging balance issues for the final area also. Improvements: (I explained the problems in the cons sections... ) Notes: Great job, I wish you luck in the contest.

    God damn this map is amazing. Feels like a better Badwater. I do have one complaint, though. That bug you said you fixed in Alpha 4, the cart drop thing, it's still there. It's been happening whenever the cart is EXTREMELY close to the final point and someone just barely touches it. Other than that, this is probably one of my favorite custom map. Good work brah.
    you are just the cutest thing
