Map Description

    Hello fellow forgers and welcome to my very first halo 5 map post.

    This map has been a long time coming and has been a harsh test of my will and my creativity as I wanted something more than what I have done. The desire to improve upon myself had suddenly come back to me with this new forge and the new sandbox which has been blessed upon us this time around.

    The map started as an old sketch from my art book, something that had begun further development before the release of Halo 5 forge (which unfortunately I don't have a picture for). Since the first beta I have had countless tests from competitive players and forgers alike (30-40 somewhat games). Each feedback stepping stone was a grinding one, sometimes not even getting feedback because of the map's refinement.

    Thanks to some notable forgers such as A polish korean, Multilockon, Squally dabeanz, Ablesir Thomas, Brotastic Bear and many more I cannot recall, Shurima has been refined and uplifted to a point I feel content to share with the community
    .

    Weapon Compliment

    Railgun x1 - 120 seconds - 2 spare clips - Bottom Green
    Overshield x1 - 180 seconds - Bottom Pink
    Storm Rifle x1 - 90 seconds - Bottom mid
    Carbine x 1 - 60 secs - 2 spare clips - Green Window
    LightRifle x 1 - 60 secs - 2 spare clips - Open deck/pink
    Boltshot x 1 - 60 secs - 2 spare clips - Top mid
    Plasma Grenades x 2 - 60 secs - Red ledge
    Spike Grenades x 2 - 60 secs - Blue Elbow
    Fragment Grenades x 2 - 60 secs - Pink Window

    Strategy

    The map rotates from pink to green with both red and blue working as pushing points for both positions. Green becomes a tad more defend-able with less line of sight control while Pink is a tad less defend-able with more line of sight control and a compliment of the overshield spawn. While callouts can be tricky at times, a play-through and some intuition they will become more apparent and easy to pick up.

    Flow can shift throughout entire matches, bouncing from green to red to blue to pink to bottom mid then back up to green all over again. But then main point of flank and access is top mid; it can instantly flip any set up on it's end and break the hold your opponent has on the map. But if used improperly, you can easily picked off from a distance as all points of the map have a view on top mid. This makes it a main flow point without allowing players to exploit a singular high-point on the map.

    10/5,
    Even though the design is basic, its still solid, and this map has proven just how good your maps can look.

    Awesome!

  4. A very aesthetically pleasing map with solid gameplay. Not a fan of the Binary Rifle for the main power weapon and that is my only reason it's not a perfect 5.

    Now the real question here is this: what are you going to do with your $500?

    I think you should buy 10 more Xbox Live accounts with it, and make more maps with those gamertags. If you keep upstaging yourself with better and better maps, you might be able to single-handedly keep the Forge community alive, since all the rest of us are quitting now.

    Beautiful window design on this map! and the layout is near perfection. I would try putting in a CTF mode for the map, I think that'll actually make it alot of fun!

    This map is probably the most beautiful thing I have seen. The curves look so smooth and organic, the domes are so amazing, overall its a really great looking map. I have no idea how well it plays, but I am going to download it just simply for the aesthetics.

    Would you allow me to model some of my future work off of those domes and windows?

    Add me if anyone needs people to play customs on this map, I jumped in on my own just to see it, and I don't need a fireteam to tell that there would be some fun and exciting 2v2-4v4 and 1flag ctf action on it. GT: Beshem Yeshua

    U can if you like, but consult me before posting anything. I wish to see how others use this type of Aesthetic in the long run. Shoot me a party invite and we can talk more on what you wish to sample from and maybe I can assist in the creation of it :D.

    I was just thinking down the line, if the dome is applicable. I'll definitely link it to you if/when I use it.

    Also, I dig the League of Legends reference. Sometimes I forget that forgers don't just forge lol

    Some of the blocks I was using were re-sized which caused gaps to appear in my Geometry.
