    I do prefer this layout to the other one overall. It ain't as big (albeit deceptively so), for one, and the moving pillars in the level are far less annoying than the constantly shuffling side platforms we had before. Thankfully it retains the sense of openness the first layout had, which is always a bonus.

    Yet, I can't help but think that it facilitates spawncamping somehow. I can't put my finger on why exactly that's the case, but so far I've had a fair few matches where either we or the enemy team were utterly boxed in after a certain point. I don't think most of those involved a player disconnecting, either, so... I dunno. Perhaps a few more rounds on the map might clear things up.

    Good map this time around, but it is fairly easy to trap the enemy into their spawn and vice versa. There really isn't a whole lot they can do to get out of whatever mess they are in, unless they somehow wipe a bunch of players from the enemy team.

    I LOVE THIS MAP!!!

    *ahem*

    So this map is a carbon rollers dream. You can run around on lots of land and cover turf so fast. This was the map that actually got me liking the carbon roller. I spent most of my time following inklings then jumping out and 1 shorting them. I love this new map.

  4. Big enough for me to have actual one on one battles with other squids, I loved it!

    SAME. I love swimming up to lone squibs and poping out just to say "hello! You died!"
