The Clown Prince of Mapping
Apr 5, 2008
The Asylum submitted a new resource:

Spaceball - Boldly play ball where no ball has been played before!

So yeah this shit again

NEW AND EXCITING! It's Spaceball A3!

Space, the final frontier. These are the battles of teams RED and BLU. Their continuing misson: to hit a ball into the other team's goal- to take a break every three minutes- to boldly play ball where no ball has been played before!

With my successful stroll down memory lane on Asylum Megamix on April Foolsday, I began to think about another long forgotten map of mine that didnt make the cut for the "Best of the Worst"- Spaceball. Way back then, I just kind of didn't know what to do with it and just let it sit there in my maps folder to rot. Well, it looks like it will serve a purpose after all.

For those who took the time to listen to the exhibits at the end of Asylum Megamix, my "free time" exhibit has already aged poorly. Two full time jobs, and a weekend gig now. That's why I've been so absent these last few years. Wake up, work, come home to nap, back out to work. 5 days a week, every week. Now it's going to be 7. Why? To cut a long story short, my life sucks. The only way I'm going to keep my house, car, health, etc, is this near suicidal 80+ hours a week. The pandemic has ruined the lives of both myself and my wife, and its going to be years before I have time for anything other than work. So, before I fade into the abyss of time and memory, a last parting gift: The latest experiment that is Spaceball. One last hurrah before the last few ounces of happiness left in my life are finally trampled out.

Well, enough of all that depressing bullshit. Need a dispenser here! Spy is Sandvich! And such.

For those not familiar with how Spaceball works, teams begin in their spawnrooms, and are given time to come up with strategies. Once the game itself begins, the players compete to hit a ball into the other team's goal, after being served from this vertical shaft in the middle. Did I mention this is melee only now? Okay, well, there it is. After 3 minutes of play, the players are spawned back into their spawnroom for an intermission. After which, another period begins. The team to score either the most amount of goals after 3 periods, or whichever team scores 10 goals, wins.

I'll try and find some time to get this playtested, but I don't like my chances. I'll see you guys again when I see you again.
