New Maps?

Post by the minne missile » Wed Feb 19, 2014 8:03 pm

I know GU has been around forever, so I know this will be a hilariously unpopular idea.. But how about creating one or two other maps for GU matches to be played on? Maybe some that will play to different strengths or just add variation to the play..

(backs away slowly)

I know it may take a bit of work.. But what do you all think?

(backs further away)

Other leagues can and have allowed multiple maps to be played. Try http://openleague.net

I thought GU was defined by the map and its style. Just as Ducati is defined as a random generator, no jumping, 2 bullet rico. Openleague is unique as well.

If you can come up with a unique fun competitive map, then make a new league out of it.
silly :P

Yes, there is open league or I could go and create my own league. But open league is not active at all, and creating a league simply won't do anything as there aren't enough players to support two leagues in duc and gu as it is.

You're right, zoom. But I like the idea of variety and matching on different maps for a change of pace.
OL is not meant to compete with duc or gu for popularity. It's just nice to be able to play team ctf on a bunch of different maps with different mates. Offers a change, a different challenge as they are not your usual maps for matching....

What about making small changes to the current map?

zoom, you're going to have to specify what you have in mind....small changes?...like what?
Small is relative :)

Or maybe have one match server that cycles test maps? I'm sure there are players out there that would be willing to put forward ideas..

I haven't really messed with creating maps before so I don't know what changes in particular I'd make but I could try this weekend and get back to you..

Could always try things out on a public server (or FMs) if you want to zoom. That's the easiest way to see if players like the idea. If there really is enough force behind an idea it would be silly not to go with it.

Zoom, you might run ideas on bzpro server by tw1sted and see what appeals to players.

I am definitely open to this idea. Shoot me a PM zoom and we'll chat.
