I definitely think the zone should be one ring larger covering a tile over the lower ground as well
Another possible suggestion would be replace the 3 "brick" walls not really doing anything along the walls in 4 spots with a 3x2 highground platform
Expanding the zone by one ring larger will change the gameplay significantly if the +1 platform remains the same size. What I can do is to turn it into the shape of a cross and add a one-tile wall in the center to block off some grenades and flashes. The 3x2 high ground platform you suggested seems a little bit overpowered for the spawns, so I don't think I will add it. Thanks for your critique. I too think the gameplay is classic and balanced. The placements of spawns would also make it a very interesting map to play on.
Don't like it. Its another pyramid but the guy in the middle is even more vulnerable to nade destruction
As RipIt pointed out, the zone may be a little too small, so I will enlarge it and add a one-tile wall in the center to block off some grenades and flashes.
This map does reflect The Pyramid in some aspects, but I wouldn't say it's just another version of it.
Another thing to add on is that when you spawn, it’d take some considerable amount of time and energy to get to the middle since you’d have to fight three other teams to get to it. In Pyramid, the instinct is to get to the middle ASAP, you can’t do that here since there are only two elevation levels.
It's the same idea as a regular free-for-all deathmatch, except players are given a team color. In other words, you will be fighting everyone around you the second you spawn, whether or not you have a team. If you are lucky, your teammates might spawn in the same area and you guys will have the opportunity to work as a team. I would also like to remind you that both Creatormin Arena and The Pyramid have two elevated levels, so your statement is invalid.
I understand that you might not be comfortable with Godmin Arena due to the negativity associated with the word, Godmin, but Creatormin is simply a joke and not offensive in anyway.
