    Canopy is a King Of The Hill map set deep in a tropical rainforest, where two opposing forces battle to control the lush environment (and resources within).

    This map is designed for centralised, focused fights around mid whilst offering multiple options for both flank- and choke-oriented playstyles. A winding flank route reaches to the side of the point, and a loose open-choke approaches from the main corners. An auxillary route is positioned at a height advantage, poised to be both a position for defenders and offensive plays pushing into the point.

    This map has asymmetric detailing. What this means is the gamemode (King Of The Hill) is symmetric in nature, but the layout is detailed in such a way that even though either side is identical in layout, it differs greatly in environment.

    I like the spawn and the approaches to mid. as for mid... I always had the feeling someone would drop on my head or attack me where I wasn't looking / surprise battle which I kinda didn't like. will need to play some more.

    I fully well know Ravage has been making brazil for like forever now but jungle is such a cool theme and I'm probably gunna use it for this map just because

    this means a2 is in the works. any other suggestions for a neat pretty theme would be swell but I'm most likely going to go with jungle for this one

    Yeah I hate how people keep portraying brazil as being full of buildings and industry when it's a jungle. What about all the monkeys going around telephone cables?

    It would be in... I dunno. A place with a rainforest, perhaps. Central Africa or Central America?

    This is not possible, the only jungle is located in Brazil.

    I recognized my mistakes long ago.
    You do not need to shove up my mistakes up my face all over again.



    Screw this, I'm tired.
    I am not gonna worry anymore about anything you guys say and keep joking over and over again, I am gonna get used to it somehow.
    Somehow.

    okay, so
    i'll probably be releasing a3 (b½) in the next few weeks. i've been detailing like mad and next version will probably be one of the last until beta.

    i'm looking for name suggestions too, as "torque" really isn't that good of a name for a jungle/rainforest themed map. there hasn't been a map called "amazon" yet, although that certainly sounds pretty close to ravage's "brazil". any suggestions different or unique that make sense with the jungle theme are appreciated.
