    im worried the banshee will be too strong on a 4v4 map, also from the pictures it seems there are not many routes to places. a little bit more creativity, verticality, and aesthetics

    I have taken this into consideration with the weapon set. There is a SPNKR Rocket Launcher as well as two plasma pistols. The SPNKR has lock-on for air vehicles and if the Banshee is hit with a plasma pistol/splinter grenade outside the cliffs it will plummet into the water. Ascension (Halo 2) is a comparable example.
    Complex is not always better. I have decided for a simple design to make the map more intuitive. Beaver Creek was simple and people love it!
    I am unsure of what you mean by this sentence? Compliment or Improvement?

    Would you be able to expand upon your 3 listed concerns?

    a banshee on a 4v4 can be too strong, even with the application of having plasma pistols and a spnkr rocket launcher. it could be used to cause too much damage, or go into unwanted areas of the map. there needs to be more verticality or levels with routes. everything is one floor, completely flat with a couple of meaningless hills with very partial cover. the roads have no cover in between them meaning camping on them would be a great problem. there could be many more aesthetics than just the new trees from the GOM update, and they could actually try to use the props the object count looks really low. the small occasion of verticality is just one or two ledges being unused most of the time. there is no real spark when looking at this map, it could be more creative in the sense of the shape, scale, or even the colour. also the walls are 99% cliffs, they are reusing the block over and over again, therefore there is no map variation and every part looks the same as the other

    I will say that the abundance of power weapons on Blue team's side is fairy noticeable, but aside from that it looks solid, about as much as it is aesthetically pleasing.

    And it's decently open with the sightlines. The map design harbors a lot of what I remember about classic Halo maps. I miss when smaller maps had powerful Sniper positions and the occasional vehicle interaction... this map deserves recognition in Halo 5 for that alone.

    Thanks for the feedback and kind words! When you mentioned Blue teams side has an abundance of power weapons, which game type were you using? Spawns are different for Slayer and Objective games. If the Lighthouse considered South, Slayer Spawns are (East/West) for equal travel time to power weapons. For Objective game types Spawns are (North/South) and both teams are equal distance from the Rocket Launcher and no vehicles.
