That's a bit of a weird name, isn't it? I thought so too, until I loaded the map. The name comes from the main feature of this map. That is, there are these small blue cone/UFO-like shapes that fly around the map occasionally diping below the surface of the water and hiding in the dark murky waters below. So that's great and all, but why should that be anything special? Well this is how they are work: on each base there are two diving platforms on the sides. When the door of these platforms is open you can walk through it to be transporter right underneath one of these "diving bells". The bell then travels around the map (taking you with it!) and lands you on the other side of the map. While you're being taken for this joyride you can use your gun as normal and others can shoot you as well! The rest of the map is pretty simple, mainly consisting of jaggy terrain and three islands. The terrain helps to give you cover and generally make the map more interesting. The islands are the two bases and one centre island.
Sound effects are put to good use to give deep underwater effects, though the lighting/texturing was a little plain.
I tried playing with bots to see how these bells would really work... but alas and woe, those bots aren't very intelligent. So all I can say is, it's an interesting concept and you might want to see what it's exactly about !
