“The forerunners once constructed a temple protecting a site fractured in time. When the celestial phases of the sun and moon are in conjunction with each other, legends suggest the possibility of being able to shift through the fabric of space and time…”
Welcome to PhaseShift, my FINAL forge map in Halo 5. It brings forth a unique mechanic for competitive gameplay, making it almost a 4-dimensional experience in tactics. Shift or teleport yourself at will between different dimensions to flank your opponents (Moon phase: a world encased in ice; Sun phase: a world thawed, full of life). Just beware, your ethereal presence remains on the other world to be tracked (colored orb). Several pathways and weapons are only available in specific worlds, so use them to your advantage. This is designed for 4v4 Slayer.
I have to give MAJOR props to scriptmaster @Julian Truby for making 4v4 possible and @JonesSeries for getting 2v2 to work. They figured out the incredible scripting mechanics experienced here and it wouldn't be possible without them. Special thanks to @Ascend Hyperion's lobby, @Max Extra's lobby, @Unsorted Gaming for a special feature and everyone else that helped test and improve its fun factor.
IMPORTANT NOTES: There is a 7 second cool-down between teleports so people don’t spam it AND it provides an (albeit brief) opportunity for you to pick up a weapon. FYI teleports won’t function if you are wedged against a wall, corner, or inside of a “blocked doorway” (highlighted by tufts of grass) in the other time phase, so keep that in mind. This map took quite a while to perfect and I hope you all enjoy it. Cheers!
