    Special Thanks goes to @a Chunk on this one. I was inspired by his "Rapture" video and decided to do my own take on that style of map.

    Hey just checked this out in forge today. Looks like a solid map, I'll throw it on next time I'm running doubles. Great work on this Chron.

    Considering that this map was originally designed as a 2V2, it worked surprisingly well for 4V4. However, the meta game quickly devolved into one team holding the top platform while the other team tries to push up from various locations around the map. This is most likely because the top level spans a majority of the length of the map, and can easily catch glimpses of each area surrounding it. There are several options as to how you can fix this. One would be to lower the entire platform and see how the other areas around the map can then put pressure on the top. Another option would be to change the shape of the top platform. This could lead to a totally different gameplay experience, one which doesn't involve grenade spam by the teleporter exit. A third option would be to split the top level into separate areas. This would create fights between the two upper areas, and force players to move down into other areas of the map in order to flank the opposing position.

    Another complaint I heard was that some of the lower areas felt like dead ends, and players would often become trapped with no clear escape routes. There are two spots I can think of that fit this description. The first is the small opening directly under the top bridge. This space is accessible from only one side, but it's the side that has other various vertical movement options. The pit it overlooks can easily become a death trap. Perhaps lowering or redesigning this hole to allow access from both sides can alleviate this problem, and may work in favor of redesigning the top to be two separate areas. The other space I can think of that can feel like a dead end is the corner where the teleporter entrance is located. It might be worth looking into removing the teleporter entirely as having a way to immediately be on the top of the map only adds to the chaos there. Without the teleporter demanding a designated space, you could experiment with other routes and vertical movement options in that corner.
