    What's this? Snark posting a map? It must be the end of the world.

    It will be a three stage map, two points in each stage. I've been puttering around with this map for so long I decided I should just get this stage released since I'm fairly content with it's layout for the most part (after many restructurings). I also thought it was time I get the name I picked out there so I need not worry about other maps.

    I am dumbfounded at the number of people who have negatively commented on my diagonal devtex. It was just something I thought up quick to use for my own purposes to signify "this will be rock" without having to pick a rock texture (I am very susceptible to texture influence, <3 devs) and figured nobody else would really care.

    Wait...is this the map that you've been talking about for months, with the theme you've been talking about for months (maybe not story, by theme), and, uh,....for months?

    If so, /thumbs up. Though I don't know if I want to wait (for months) just to see the whole thing ;)

    Well, in that case I'm looking forward to seeing it detailed in the theme you've talked about, particularly given some relevant information you've shared in the past.

    Well, that diag texture is... unconventional at first... I mean what's the point to have measures printed on it if you're gonna rotate it ? But since you already explained that and it's your own concern anyway... let's forget about it.

    Stormcaller, heh ? Is red setting up a raindance machine of doom ? :p

    I read this as "nice boob job", go figure. :bored:

    Seemed balanced enough when we played it earlier, my only real complaint is that the section inbetween the two points seems rather...well, pointless really. All it seemed to accomplish during our playtest was force the offense to run a bit more to get where they needed to be.
