@Swkoll you are lucky I did not know Dreadnought Chasm existed when I was submitting my map for Summer Invitational.

Thanks to a lot of help and advice, I managed to finish Frozen Firefight a lot quicker than expected. It's 7.9 MiB on the map vault. Please host games on it so I know how it plays, it should be suitable for everything from 2v2 to 4v4.

Lessons learned from Settling Scores

  • Just because a map can be played 1v1, doesn't mean you should put it in the pool of a 1v1 tournament
  • A delayed map may eventually be good, but a bad map debut is bad forever
  • Everyone will dislike a map at first
  • Nobody cares how groundbreaking your map is if the gameplay is atrocious
  • Stop putting mass spots every 5 metres
  • Stickleback should be my new standard going forward
  • Don't be afraid to ask for help from pros
  • Not map related, but $100 for hours of content for hundreds of people is actually a pretty good deal

Yes! Arch did a very good job of chasing me up on that.

pink ones just look like weir candy that have fallen on a weird green table, doesn't feel like bushes or trees.
The orange ones are nice

Tamara Pass

10km x 10km 2v2. Going back to basics with this one. Very unlike me to upload a map that actually has finished decals, but there you go, I guess I'm growing. Thanks to Arch and Jip for lots of help on this one.
