    Got started with a 5cp for the jam, but only had one day to hammer it together.

    Got a raw version of middle and 2nd point ready, so not in a playable state yet.

    I will upload it once I get it in to a playable state since it was pretty unfinished during the jam.

    I took a run around. All of my feedback is basically just guessing, so take it with as many grains of salt as you'd like.

    These handrails are typically non-solid with playerclip so that player can shoot through them reliably.

    clip

    This whole situation with the shed feels more complex than it needs to be? I feel like the most valuable thing here is that the defending team has a slight height advantage, which could be accomplished by getting rid of the shed and extending the platform on the left over (and raising the platform a bit). You might also want to consider changing the ledge to stairs to make rotating while attacking last less of a hassle.

    I find it pretty difficult to navigate through this area - getting through the shack window, for example, requires pretty precise aim when walking (and at the moment, there isn't clipping at the bottom, so you have to jump or crouch to get in), and it's not really a great place to be as a player. I recommend making the shacks bigger, or removing the window, or even removing the interior entirely. I would also recommend making them a bit shorter - it's possible to get on the roof as scout from mid, but it's a weird maneuver.

    Some areas feel a bit underscaled, especially lobby. "Correct" scaling depends a lot on how much fighting actually happens in the area, so without actually seeing people play the map, it's hard to make judgment calls like that.

    Nothing good can come of this door. Shutters are usually a high-risk situation for anyone to be in, and putting a small one next to a point is a red flag imo.

    eh just one minor thing, i think you should raise the fences, cause you can jump on the wooden box and there's a stair with door so i thought i can go through

    I have feedback of this map:
    cp_kalinka_b20001.jpg
    Whoa what is going on here?
    cp_kalinka_b20002.jpg
    This black abyss is a little weird looking.
    cp_kalinka_b20003.jpg
    This wall looks very bland and boring.
    cp_kalinka_b20005.jpg
    There is metal on the side but wood on the bottom?
    cp_kalinka_b20006.jpg
    Clean concrete on top but old concrete on the side?
    cp_kalinka_b20007.jpg
    The brick here looks very weird.

    all around i really like this map and this is turning out very well i can't wait to see what is has to offer in the future.
