Apocalypse Is The Greatest Map of All Time

Post by notarealnamee » Sat Nov 02, 2019 5:04 am

Hello!

Been playing for a number of years and I just have to say though it is an unpopular opinion. Apocalypse is the best map for battle and capture the flag and the best map BZ has to offer. Why you ask?

1) Simplicity
2) Repeat Playability- I will never ever ever get tired of this map
3) Variety of weapons
4) Levels up easily with scale- The more the merrier {except for Colonel obviously}

Who's with me? For me this is like the map Block Fort on Mario Kart N64 or really any of those classic maps. They're just stellar. Second runner up is Urban Jungle.

What can I say?

WOW!
and
Thank You from the bottom of my heart.

I always craved fast action, and did what I could to make Dutchrai's map play as fast as I could.
The key is really making it exciting when there is a low player count. For any map, If it never makes it past 4 players it never makes it any farther. And I do play the server often at 2-on-2, and even with only four, it's pretty decently fun.

I must say again, the map belongs to Dutchrai at Shellshock. I just put the Planet-MoFo treatment on it.

Take a look at my Defender game mode concept.

Thinking is not an automatic process. A man can choose to think or to let his mind stagnate, or he can choose actively to turn against his intelligence, to evade his knowledge, to subvert his reason. If he refuses to think, he courts disaster: he cannot with impunity reject his means of perceiving reality.

Can we expect more maps like Apocalypse from you? I really like it too.

There can be only one Apocalypse. Will never be another.
I am working on something for twenty twenty. viewtopic.php?f=66&t=20361&p=177772#p177772
The action there is to allow players to choose their own weapon.... The DMZ is a new concept.
