    Arena Lolcano (beta 2)
    by Dr. Spud


    Welcome back to the pro-zone.

    Lolcano is back, and it is once again on the cutting edge of serious TF2 comp action. Boasting more than 5 years of play in ETF2L, UGC, and cal leagues, lolcano is the culmination feedback from hundreds of top-tear pro players.

    The skill-ceiling is raised even higher in this new Arena version, which removes respawning, a crutch for casual players.

    Arena_lolcano continues the "back to basics" approach to level design that the Koth version was known for. It's a basic but strategic layout that takes time and practice to learn. There are no "gimmicks" to be found here.

    Features:
    -Rising and Falling LOL lava
    -Trolololing

    An arena version was requested, partially because it's better for the Saxton Hale mod.

    Also because respawning is for casuals.

    Science experiment:

    Let's try promoting maps in TF2 Game Hub. I'm curious whether this can work. Lolcano can be a test dummy.

    Upvote this screenshot, which has a link to this thread in the description: http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=95722425


    With enough upvotes it should go on the game hub front page.

    May I say something?


    I personally LOVE this map.


    EDIT/FUN FACT: This was actually the first custom map I've ever played (the KotH version), and then I got into map making.

    To be honest this doesn't work nearly as well as an arena map, due to the difficulty of navigating the outside routes. Not all KOTH layouts make good Arena layouts and vice-versa. Nucleus and Sawmill have made it easy to forget that.
