I loved Ashville back in the day, and I wasn’t much of a koth fan either. Coalplant’s pretty similar bar some balance changes (notably shorter gap between spawn and CP), prettier visuals (but Ashville still has that nostalgia factor), and I suppose is the successor to Ashville. It’s a cool map, but is official inclusion worthy?
I don’t know, I liked the bigger map size of Ashville for pubs, and good comp maps don’t automatically equal good official 12v12 maps. I wouldn’t mind seeing Coalplant added though, definitely would love to play it more. This layout inspired future koth maps too and I think that’s praiseworthy of 5 stars.
