    Hello, forge hub, I am some random fat guy with a lame gamertag with six capital "I's" in it. I have been designing and forging maps for some time now, but I never really feel like posting maps because of me being fat and lazy. Unfortunately, I ran out donuts and I am forced to do something other than eating. So, I was like, "HEY! I am going to post a map right now."

    Well, about the map. This map started when I wanted to have a prisoner styled central atrium in the quarry. So, I started drawing, and never really came up with anything I thought would be fat and broken. This made me have to go back to the drawing board. I came up with another idea of forging fast paced asymmetric map for team slayer that was base around team shooting. That idea never really flourished until one day I was thinking about circular flow and cross map shooting, everything began to become fat and broken, and there was peace in my fridge.

    Weapon:

    4 DMR's 10 sec
    1 pistol 60 sec
    1 PP 30
    2 sets of frags
    2 sets of plasmas
    1 Sniper 118 sec drop spawn
    1 GL 118 sec drop spawn
    2 Health packs

    Definitely enjoyed my game or so on this a few nights ago. The map definitely lives up to your team-shooting thing, because I was actually sitting back being a team player rather than a lone wolf, which is intensely rare for me. And yeah, great job.

    Also, I feel sorry for you having to put up with Xzample and Seven and all the crap they give you. :p

    This is a very nice asym. I still don't think it has enough depth for the map, but it has enough to support 4v4 (probably greater for 2v2). Regardless, it is decently balanced and callouts as well as orientation are pretty good on here, except a couple areas are confusing to call out.

    Can't wait to see that forgotten asym to be released too.

    Btw, to make the thumbnail show up, preview the post first and then add the direct link. For some reason, it only works the 2nd time, for me at least.

    My personal favorite of all of your completed projects. An all around great map, that is competitive and fun to play.

    Not much bad things could be said about this map. If you are a fan of fast-paced, strategic, team-oriented gameplay, then this map should be a welcome addition to your library.

    This is the asym you showed me awhile back right? Very sexy.
    Btw, we don't use the MLG tag anymore... Too many people refuse to look at good maps because of it. :p

    Looking pretty fat. Make sure not to eat it.

    Doesn't matter as long as the good forgers, the ones from MLG that is, still check it out, right?

    Ok, ok, just kidding.

    But hey, Tyrant, it is looking really nice.

    You have tidied this map up so well I think I just spilt my coffee.

    Have you managed to get many/any games on this yet. I want to hear how it went in Hill after the changes you made.

    Looking slick Big Boy.

    One of my favorite maps form you tyrant. Solid ascetics, Unique layout and great game play! Although i have yet to play a 4v4 on the map, the 2v2 i did play, played at a steady pace with team shooting and team strategy(Pinching) being vital for the success of our team. Lone wolf crap wont work on this one.

    Excellent map tyrant and I urge everyone to not only give this one a download but to run some customs on it as well!

    Will definitely have to DL when I get home, from the screenshots it looks cleanly forged and creative. I love your use of struts (can't resist 'em) and your platform y walls are really interesting.

    You know it's MLG when XL platforms line the walls. Lol.

    First of all I loved the map. I love the walls and your use of the struts. However it needs a kill zone at the top. I was just playing slayer with a few friends and it was going great until everyone found out you could escape and then they were all jet-packing out to pinnacle. I also feel the rock in the center could be a tad bit smaller. Other than that great map! =)

    This map is designed for MLG, which does not have jetpack starts. If you want it to support jetpacks, go into forge and spend 1 minute putting a soft kill barrier over it.

    The rock is the perfect height and width to block los to a spawn area, otherwise I would agree with you.

    My bad I should have said something about the custom game type link in the opener. Also, I have experimented with the rock quite a bit, and that ended up being the best way to do the rock, but if I ever do come back to this map I will mess with it some more. Other than that, glad you enjoyed.

    I guess now that it's stickied, all the hype for this map is gone now. Awkward enough. It has been a fun asym.

    Congratulations on the FHF big guy!

    It sucks that we make so many maps, that even the good ones only get played for a little while. This is definitely one of the better maps from our group of forgers, so hopefully we keep playing this for a while.

    It really is. And uhm, Tyrant, youwouldn't mind submitting this in the "library" thing, would you? we need some better stuff in there.

    Can this handle splitscreen?
