ATHLON

4v4 Capture the Flag

Map Description

  1. WARHOLIC
    A competitive 4v4 symmetrical map supporting multiple objective game types. For the best CTF experience please use a 3 flag game type with a 3 second recover time, flag must be home to score.

    This is a remake of the map "ÆTHEIST" designed by Noooooch and myself in Halo 4. There are some minimal changes to the bases providing additional areas for spawning. The objective location area has been elevated to elicit more strategic engagements and extend bomb arm times.

    10/5,
    I can easily say this is one of the best forge maps I've ever played. I really hope it makes it into HCS. Awesome job.

    10/5,
    Finally got to play this. Always loved it in Halo 4. I have to say it is much better in this game too. The charge system is a lot more balanced feeling with the pacing of H2a and doesn't feel as gimmicky. My one suggestion to improve the map would be to remove the railings in top mid. Often as I was up there I tried to walk off but couldn't and ended up dying. Due to the openness of the top, I feel you need to be able to walk down instead of being forced to jump. That's a very small issue though.
  3. Does the map believe in itself this time? :P
  4. Always enjoyed this map in H4, so glad you brought it over to H2A. Hopefully less emphasis on that gimicky shield charge station this time. :P

    Second picture: The two railings on the left are higher than the ones on the right. If I think about it, it would look better if the right ones are at the same height as the left ones. Cheers.

    This map has its own consciousness, it decides if you live or die.
    @Buddy - Thanks, didn't notice the different elevations on those railings. Pro tip: you can get up there without being pestered by any kill volumes to get interesting angles on players in the hill;)

    The aesthetics of this map blow my mind. Is there any video link for gameplay or a walkthrough?

    How do I download this map? I added ForgeHub Live as a friend on XBL, but I do not know the "EXACT" steps in order to get the file share. Campaign scoring or timing? Which Halo? etc.

    Please advise,

    Thanks!

    If you followed the "ForgeHub LIVE" account, I would recommend waiting until you see it in your roster on H2A and downloading maps from its file share. We keep it online and idle from time to time to give users easy access to community maps. Thanks for the interest:)

    Fantastic layout and interesting player bases. Really fun to play on and navigate. Centre area is maybe a bit of death pit. Would really like to see this played more.
    Frame rate issues kill the map potential in current form. Cannot support using the map in any capacity until FR issues are fully resolved, otherwise this map has my full support.

    I love this map War, however one thing. I feel that the pictures in the OP should reflect the current (version 2) version. I discovered the pics in the update of version 2 a couple days ago and I have a feeling that most have never seen those pictures.
    I would update the OP with the pictures of version 2, while putting the screenshots of version 1 in the updates section.

    I hope you make it possible to jump from flag plat to the middle. I think pros would like that. It would also allow you to add more pit influence without it still being the pit.

    What did you use to make the ledges on the side of the ramps? Particularly on the last picture.

    They are just door pieces put together. Pretty easy on FR too I think.

    Congrats on making the HCS cut. This map and Erupt where the only ones that did that deserve a place in the running. Glad to see hard work pays off for at least some people, even if ass kissery and politicking runs the show more so.
