    Entry to the Mapper's vs Machines contest

    A basic MvM map with a gate that the robots can capture - if they do it cuts their path signifiantly and gives them a quicker shortcut to the bomb hatch.
    And watch out! Tanks will instantly capture the gate so sure to be on top of them.

    Currently has a custom advanced difficulty popfile only.

    Mappers vs Machine has certainly given us a lot of great MVM maps. This looks really promising!
