    'Revealed to be the entrance to the lost Forerunner Domain, this region of Genesis now radiates mystical energies.'

    Big Team Battle. At some point or another in one's Halo multiplayer career, Big Team Battle was a favorite, and still thrives as a non-ranked favorite through the Halo community today. With the power of Halo 5's Forge, I wanted to bring something fresh to Big Team Battle aside from the obvious synergy that players need through the love of vehicles, power weapons, and the freedom that a BTB map has to offer all in one space. My goal is to achieve both a flowing map that feels mechanically good to play on, and an expanse rich in detail and life that speaks to its belonging in the Halo universe- all on a Big Team Battle scale. This playspace was certainly a creative challenge to get from mind, to paper, to digital medium.

    I hope this is my next best creation that speaks to the fruits of my efforts. Understand where this place is in Halo, and also what it could be. ;)

    Welcome to Leyline.

    9/5,
    Leyline offers something new but hits right at home as well. The map is very unique and creative. The routes are fun and you are able to flank well. What I really love about Leyline is how the Mantis feels on the map, feels built for it! Great atmosphere, great gameplay, well done!
  2. A fantastic, full immersive experience to play on, Leyland stands out as an iconic and accurately-themed representation of what can be done in Halo 5's forge when it comes to creating campaign environments. This map does a great job of surrounding you with that Genesis atmosphere.

    Check for spawns that face walls. Consider forerunner teleporters. Warthogs can get stuck in a ground-level rock wall in mid.

    Critiques: Add a little more elevation with hills or ridges in the big open area in which you see the waterfall in the background, add additional pathways and cave systems in which infantry can more easily evade from vehicles, maybe add more weird flora in the empty cave hallways and long extension of pathing

    Pros: The atmosphere and scope made me really feel like I was on a mysterious region of Genesis, the size of the map is really exciting too, the Forerunner bridges had to be ripped from campaign so I wont even credit you for that :D, and finally I'd like to have more tests on this map it's a very intriguing theme you have going for this map

    Thank you very much! I sincerely appreciate it and will resolve the infantry/vehicle situation immediately. I'll look into more variation in Blue/Red 'Open'.

    The forunner parts are my favorite bits for sure, despite my opinions on 343runner, I'm glad to see that this map took off. The attention is well deserved for sure.
