Cladite Created by a Polish Korean Recommended Gametypes: MLG TS, MLG CTF (5 Flag), MLG Bomb (Sanctuary Bomb), MLG Team King, MLG Oddball Recommended Players: 6-8 Released with the second half of the Mythic Map Pack, Citadel was actually featured on the MLG main stage in a hands on preview during the Dallas 2009 event, but unlike its map pack brethren Heretic, it never made it as far as the Pro Circuit map compliment. Whilst it may not be a remake of one of the most celebrated MLG maps of all time, that doesn't mean it escaped the attention of those with a mind for competitive Halo and a keen eye for map design. aPK's Spiritual Successor to this often overlooked Halo 3 arena removes the long sweeping lines of sight and focus on end to end action, matching a redesign of the layout with a distinct absence of the two Snipers which often perpetuated this standoffish gameplay. This overhaul is achieved by compacting the map from end to end, thus altering the layout of the bases to give them more physical depth and open up their lines of sight, along with a new approach to the role that bottom middle plays in the design. The Shotgun tunnels are gone in favour of another access ramp to bottom base, and a drop down from top plat, as well as a lift being added underneath each base. This adaption of the Citadel base design moves away from the thin gauntlets of the Overshield tunnels, fleshing out the bases in a way which gives a nod towards a more universally accepted MLG precedent, the aforementioned Legendary Map Pack companion, Heretic. However, the easy base-to-base route offered by top middle in Citadel remains, and whilst the Snipers and Overshields may be gone, the dominant force of Rockets still reside on his key route and power position, joined by a Camo located bottom middle. Whilst Cladite comfortably caters to all the above gametypes, we recommend the Team King variant if you really want to see it shine.
