This map makes me think of the movie Big where Tom Hanks raises his hand in a meeting and says "I Don't Get It."
I honestly don't know what there is not to get but I didn't. It looks nice, the movement is nice, the item placement is well done, it supports plenty of players, and spirit was even nice enough to let us able to rocket jump into some of the upper details... but something about it didn't seem great.
It gets high scores because it is certainly a professional map, and it's certainly got some good gameplay, but it seems like it was designed to win and not designed to play.
Maybe I'm being too harsh. Regardless, Spirit's other entry was absolutely flipping amazing so that makes up for any negativity that I bring here.
Hehe, it wasn't made to win. I actually had the layout in my head before I thought about the contest. But it was intentionally made to be different from my other maps. They all look similar and have a certaín common style. Of course I like that stlye, but with this one, I wanted to take a break from it. This is reflected in both the layout and lighting/texturing.
(You can do s_ambient 0 or something like that if you hate my voice, hehe.)
