Re: FF & EIE Matches

wow impressive ::: and whats with all the other teams?
- is there something "new" missing in the leagues that players lose interest?

great MDSKPR! you still can make good maps! I like it a lot!

only comment to improve the map is to add the notexalpha (as trepan mentioned) and the noradar for the 2D playing and radar starring tanks (pity we miss the great sight hanging out at the beach ;)

keep up the good work!
