    Ritalin is a competitive focused 2 CP map. The map is small, fast, has tight sight-lines, and encourages team play. The layout is designed with competitive players' feedback in mind, and I've spoken to a number of comp teams about how to improve it. After rigorous 6 v 6 testing and a few layout-revisions, I've come up with what I believe to be a solid comp map that is simple, but infinitely replayable.

    The map is designed specifically to add more vertical elements to the tried-and-true comp formula. This will keep 6 v 6 teams on their toes, but ensure that they never get lost. Ritalin's design is the natural evolution of a standard symmetrical comp map into something with a bit more edge.

    I've spoken to a few of the US comp organizers about getting ritalin into regular competitive play. With a few more revisions I think the map may be ready.:)

    I have a stupidly long demo detailing all the events that went down starting about 5 minutes after map start until the change to granary_shiny :p

    Tell me if you want a DL link posted, it's ~127,000 frames with a rate of 60.

    Btw, I don't know that much about demo recording so it's soley first person, unfortunately. Do you have to go specator to get the ability to fly around? Also, what's a good rate?

    Yo, I have a beef with this.

    I there aren't enough healthpacks. I was running around the cap and couldn't find anything, so I got killed with a spreadless, non-crit rocket. WTF.

    Also, respawn times are too long.

    Furthermore, this map is not Badlands. =/

    I just played on a 24/7 running this for a few hours. Not one medic on our side :( Maybe loose the large health pack by the CP and a couple under the bridge to encourage more? Apart from that, it has great flow. Looking forward to playing lots.

    Yeah so I kind of rushed it and didn't fix the busted lighting or the game text. Blargh.

    But we played it and it's really fun. :)

    This map needs more health. Seriously, this map is CP not Arena.
