Now I'm going to respond to some feedback I got from the site.

  • "teams should own their own point when they game starts"
Originally the map had this idea, but I disagree with this decision for several reasons. Having each point start uncapped makes each team split up into two sides, most of the time. It gives choice between players to either hold more defensively and capture, or blitzkrieg the other team before they cap their own. It's like a rock paper scissors game and hopefully the map reflects that in the best way possible.
  • "capping is too soon"
I decided not to change the cap times in this version because I think that while they may be a little long, it makes the beginning of the game last much longer so players can make more decisions before they die and have to sit out. Generally it makes it feel like you're playing the map for longer, which is nice in arena.

That's about it, I hope you enjoy this version of the map!
  • Added new cover to each side made of concrete that blocks a small sight
  • Made the capture area more obvious

  • Redid the ramp to have less space on the edges

  • Moved the health and ammo to inside of the lobby to make holding the cliff sightly less powerful and the health more accessible for defenders

  • Rehauled the useless room to have a dropdown to the connector between spawn and the cliff. It has a sight to the window looking outdoors and should allow for some interesting plays
  • Window now has glass to prevent a sightline being abused

  • Added health and ammo to the spawns sliding door
  • This should make the spawn room more appealing as a defense location
