    This is really awesome, but you probably already know that it needs proper camera work and lower kill boundaries.

    Absolutely. Cameras and more kill boundaries will be implemented later today. Thanks!

    @MrDeliciousman9 Thank you sir! ^_^ Go ahead and give it a download and a playtest. Please let me know what you think. I'm actively looking for feedback to improve the space if any. Thanks again.

    Bro I playtested with u the other day and I like the simple but fun layout. I'm a big fan of your artistic aesthetics and I hope that my maps are worthy contenders to yours.

    This makes me love the Domain more than I already have. It was nice testing this the other night Portaleer!

    -There are a couple spots near the scattershots that interrupt smooth walking.
    -Portals aren't very intuitive the first time around.

    BTW, it was awesome getting to play with you in the custom game there! Easily the best Guardian recharging station around! It could easily be an addition to matchmaking with a bit more polish- aesthetically, it's already there.

    Noted. Thank you very much for playing and I greatly appreciate your feedback; it means a lot to me. I am addressing the jagged flooring around Scattershot, and will actually be moving Scattershot's location, as well as fine tuning existing locations and additional cover on the top level. This map was a huge undertaking to build and I'm proud of it. Thanks again! :)

    I wanted to make a domain map, but if I did it it wouldn't look right, because I would make it in the old style architecture xD - IKYLEIZBEASTLY

    -The floor's pretty slick right now and the general clutter feels like it has been controlled. Nice!
    - While the Scattershot placement is good, I think the far back of that edge of the map- the space occupied by the Splinter grenade now- might be a better place for it? Maybe; I don't know.
    - Did you ditch the beam linking to the Guardian, or is it just not showing up for whatever reason? If it's gone, it shall be missed.
    - Some floors could use additional texturing, especially across the center from the Incineration pad.
    - Red and Blue side both suffer from low ceiling issues in places- in fact, the lower level as a whole feels like it could improve with more breathing room.
    - ...and I know this is a huge thing to say at this stage in development, but the overall layout, while solid, is very similar to a simplified Haven/Mercy. Furthermore, it's exceedingly small. If this were my map (and take this with a grain of salt; I haven't made a map worth playing since H4), I would scale back the power weapons, rein in the boundaries to make them clearer, add a power-up somewhere, and advertise this as an amazing 2v2 map.

    Overall, I continue to love this map! I can't wait to see where it ends up!
