Description: Its dark. Thats the first thing I noticed. Some of you may like dark maps, but I personally find it hard to see. Oh well.

In this map, there are no supply docks. There are many supply piles, however, since they will run out much faster, you must make sure to secure the oil derricks scattered throughout the map, or you're screwed.

Very wide open map. No civilian buildings or bunkers so no place to hide. Average size for a four player map. Symmetrical though. Oh well.

----------- -------------------------------------

Alright, I wanna know who reviewed my map.

Whoever you are, this is to you.

My map? Symmetrical? Please. I'll tell you what, go actually PLAY the map, and tell me it's symmetrical.

You can tell me my map sucks, and you can tell me you don't like dark maps, but DO NOT EVER CALL ANY OF MY MAPS SYMMETRICAL.

Got it?

Where do they get these guys? Play my map before you review it you retard. I wanna new review, this map is the exact opposite of symmetrical.

I looked at it and I don't think its symmetrical so I edited that out.

Now let me tell you something.

You most likely don't understand how much work we do on this site. The staff members that actually do work (both of them) have to balance real lives, other filesnetwork work, and then take care of this. Do you know how many maps come up because of a game like this due to the fact that theres a map editor and not a program like radiant?

We are understaffed and overloaded with work, so if somebody makes a small mistake like that you can e-mail us and calmly point out that you don't think the map is symmetrical.

Play my map before you review it you retard.

I reviewed your map. I play every map I review and put up. You know something? Going by zooming around the map, it all looked the same! So maybe I didn't look at the overview close enough to see on the minimap that it didn't look symmetrical. Not like we can see anything anyway on that damn thing.

go actually PLAY the map

Why don't I just fax you the notebook I have that I use to take notes on every map I review?

Where do they get these guys?

You have a problem with the review? E-mail us or post without the nasty attitude.

I work my ass off on this site to get it up to speed with others and I put all my spare time into it so maybe every now and then I might accidently put the wrong three words into a review.

Sometimes I don't even know why I bother at all since nobody seems to appreciate all the work this takes

All you had to do is read the readme.. You think I'm gonna lie to you about what my map is like?

No, what I'm saying is that you could have read the readme, not to write an official review but to see what the author wants you to see..and then verify if they're just BSing you or not.

The point of a review is to get an objective view on something. We do map reviews to let people know if we think the map is good or not. If we think its bad we'll list the reasons why, and if the person downloading doesn't believe its warrented then they're download the map anyway.

According to you, we should write a review like

"The map was not symmetrical, just like what the readme says. The map has eight oil derricks, just like what the readme says..."

We will review the maps based on playing, not influence from the author. If you are unhappy with the review, I apoligize

The reviewer's job is to grade a map as they see it, and give users an idea of what to expect from a 3rd persons view and not the developer opinion of how great it is. please do not insult the staff of generalsfiles.com just because you don't agree with what the reviewer thought of it. and since you like to give ultimatums, I have one for you.. you make another post insulting the members of ANY filesnetwork hosted site and you won't get the oppurtunity of posting your response anymore. Got it?
