in my opinion this map has a great future but i dont think 2 waterfalls make sense. you could replace the one with a cave or a water fall going down like a death pit. - though is my opinion. keep the good work going

I really like this map because it started off pretty badly, but then the fixes actually reworked a bunch of areas to make the map work.
Great job!
Is this your first map? Cause you've got a really good grasp of the development process :)

I've seen this on b4nny's twitch. It's pretty great to watch a map iterate from feedback in (sorta) real time.

I probably won't have time to work on this map or play tf2 for a while. Thanks so much to everyone who tested, provided feedback, and offered advice. Without you the process of creating this map could not have been the incredibly fun and rewarding experience that it was. I look forward to officially finishing Cascade and starting new mapping projects in the future.
