    Did you make this naming decision knowing what it means, or...?

    This actually doesn't look that bad. It's a bit small and open, but small & open can be fun, like harvest :)
    Your point is my favorite part looking at the screenshots. Looks very fun to play on! This all being said, there isn't much cover around the point, and the enemy spawn is RIGHT THERE. Make those walls opaque, and I may be able to tolerate it. Also, I didn't see a resupply in your spawn, but I'm probably just crazy.

    It seems like the entire level is built inside a box. That is not the way to go. What you'd want to do is that you need to make interesting areas, and glue them together, making an all-around more interesting and more dynamic enviroment.

    My first maps were also built in an oblong concrete wall, with buildings populated inside.
    Try not to do so.

    Besides that, I'd recommend better light_enviroment. Perhaps copy the properties of another light from another map? Or you can simply change the values yourself to more interesting angle of light, and add a hint of a colour, preferebly a shade you'd see in sunshine (Ex. Yellow)

    I like the gullywash-style control point.

    A map designed for 2v2, with a medic and a soldier. features little health and ammo, a tiny arena, and often a raised point with a longer cap time than usual.

    With that in mind, I'd actually say that it's too LARGE for an ultiduo map. From what I've seen, gameplay detail doesn't usually go beyond a couple pillars or a single feature. You don't want stuff in the way of your sweet airshots.

    Also, I'm fairly certain ultiduo maps have the sensible prefix ultiduo_ as opposed to koth. That would help the confusion.
