    This and also Felix -- I don't actually know a single person on here. None are on my friends list, idk anyone in real life either. Don't be so quick to jump to conclusions (that goes for both people AND maps)

    Alright guys the bickering needs to stop, everyone is entitled to there own opinions but this back and forth isn't doing much before i know it an Admin will have to come clean this up to make the thread not so congested (not that i have a problem reading all the posts).

    If your not going to leave feedback on what iv shown so far whether it be agreeing with how i feel about it or any other opinion just leave it out of here please.

    Captain is right, this has turned to a cat fight. I'd love to help test the map, but I don't do well with time zones, so I'll just be on and see if I can join if it hasn't happened yet.

    As I had already typed all this out I saw your post about stopping this nonsense, so I just spoiled it. :p

    Focusing gameplay towards the center of a map is exactly what you want... even if it is linear. Do you remember Narrows? That was the whole point of that map. It doesn't make the game stale, it makes it quite the opposite.

    As for you Hulk, I think that you're just attacking Captain's map because you got called out on your BS. And btw, I HAVE checked out your maps and I can tell you that they are not as good or original as you think. Your maps are all massive flat surfaces with sloppy gameplay. (Hence, the lack of originality) Also might I add that you are not as a talented forger as you see yourself. I've yet to see anything that impressed me from your maps. It's very generic and blah. I reccommend adding height variation and decreasing your map size to about half.
    Dude... wtf are you talking about? You have 200 some posts and have been a member since 2009... Ive been here since 2008 and have 700 some. Seriously you make no sense.

    If you wanna keep this up I can point out more flaws in your argument, just visitor message me or PM.

    GTF rocks haha

    Anyway...Captain: the idea is great. I'm not sure what VALUABLE input I can give you other than to just make things feel natural which again, shouldn't be an issue since Guardian and Lockout are both very similar yet very different haha

    BTW I LOVE the name you chose. It adequately describes the map without just combining the names of the maps like you did previously. Though Guardout is still not a bad name either, but Fractured is original AND descriptive.

    I can't see the pics right now and I forgot: do you have any of the Guardian man cannons? Lockout only has the sniper grav lift but Guardian had a man cannon to sniper tower and one to the main grav lift in it... Just wondering.

    Nice way to hijack a thread, he made a map with attributes from each of the other maps, not a big deal, in fact, why not? Captn, just keep making the maps YOU want to make, and the tell tale will be how ever many downloads it gets when the Fileshare is up and running. I like it!

    I guess I should have been more clear in what I was getting at. Guardian and Lockout/Blackout are my alltime favorite maps. So I like it when people make maps that were inspired by them. I was trying to defend the map and its creator. Keep making maps no matter what anyone says...including me.

    Guys: detailed criticism is one thing. This has turned into the other thing. Please be more respectful in your tones and stop insulting each other, or posts will start disappearing and infractions will be handed out. You should be able to have a difference of opinions without being so nasty.

    In addition, a brief conversation about remakes and hybrids is fine, but this thread has now been dominated by that conversation, which is just a question of personal preference and not helpful to the map's author. Please get back on topic and try to not get mired in this side conversation. If you want to have an in-depth discussion on whether remakes and hybrid maps are inherently good or bad, you can make a thread for that in Forge Discussion. A lot of what has been said here is akin to posting lengthy explanations in a minigame release thread as to why you don't like minigames, or writing a "review" of a Rick Ross album which just explains that you dislike all rap; in other words, it's not appropriate.

    I lol'd, I would like to get a test on this map Captian. Is it in your fileshare? I would like to actually do a fly through to gives some decent critique, I dont like judging by pictures.

    I agree. Initially, I was excited to see a Guardian remake, and then really confused by the fact that you added Lockout's library.
