I really like the visual aspects of this map and I like the changes on first. I personally think last could be made so it's a little more easy to push. Right now, all the paths minus the cart path require a full commit. This makes it so BLU either has to endlessly spam from the balconies (which is a game that red wins), push through the long cart path where they will likely spam, or dropdown from a balcony or the circular exit which will mostly likely lead to them dying. Personally, I think if the circular exit was made into a regular doorway instead of a dropdown, BLU would have more options to potentially break the hold. Also, red's spawn is still only 1 exit, so it should probably get another spawn exit. (Perhaps onto the highground?).

Overall, I really like this map and I'm excited to see future stages.

Yeah it was heavily inspired by goldrush 2nd which also has drop downs for most of the routes for BLU, but thanks for the suggestions, I'll take this into account if this version still doesn't play that well

Any specific goal with the # of stages in the map? 2, 3? Having a definitive stage count can help you come up with thematic beats in your map and the pacing between the stages. I'd recommend taking a look at plr_vegas if you'd like to learn more about that, it does the concept very well.
