    KOTH Aurora, as inherited from the original ctf_aurora, is an intel based map. You fight for control over a centrally located neutral intelligence, holding it for 3 minutes. The flag is restricted from exiting the center arena, so if you've got the flag, you're in it to win it.

    Lots of fun, try it out, hectic as hell and hard to turtle. I will not tolerate whining players, so, yeah, the flag dropping mechanic can be confusing, but that's how things are :)

    There is currently a bug- each team can drop the flag near their opponents base, thus rendering their opponents unable to grab it. Will be fixed in the future...

    Will we be testing this on any gamedays?

    that's why you look at comments with a critic's eye instead of implementing every single thing, right?

    We shouldn't question his playtesting ways. He's Mangy.

    Looking good as usual Mangy!

    I look forward to seeing how this one turns out when I play it.

    Screenshot looks amazing, Is it a custom skybox? I really wanna play this as I am not a fan of KoTH as is, so it seems like a nice variation.

    This is not ctf_aurora, looking for feedback on the KOTH w/ intel mechanics

    Skybox is not custom, materials are created by Acegikmo, and the aurora is some fancy displacement trickery. Open it up and see~

    It's actually a suitable bball substitute + good soldier/demo warmup map; controlling the top of the hut with the intel and airshotting opponents can be a lot of fun

    It seems like a much better version of the 'king of the flag' mode that came out a while back, I'm really anxious to play it.

    I like ctf_Aurora. I like Koth. I think I must try this out. The koth-not-really-koth idea seems pretty fun, great for casual games, wonder how good it would be for competitive gameplay? :) This mode seems like it would be a total meat grinder.

    Ooooh looks cool, the intel starts on top of the hut I see.

    We're playing this in a minute, so you'll have some feedback.
