File Description

This small duel map is unlike most others. Usually you have an area, where you duke it out. Sure, this is an area, but "duking it out" will be the least of your worries. Not only do you have to fight for saber supremacy, but you have to fight for decent footing. This map is oriented vertically, rather than horizontally. It features a shaft, perhaps 20 feet across, but quite tall. The shaft is littered with thin platforms, no more than about three feet wide, for you to jump back and forth from to make your way to the top (should you so choose).

The interesting thing about this map is that there is no "solid ground" so to speak. You don't climb up the shaft to be the first to reach a big platform; no such platform exists. Rather you must make a stand on the small platforms, using your skills to keep from falling to what could be a gruesome death (or just a fractured tibia, if you're lucky).

Personally, while the map could probably use a little more aesthetic detail in certain areas, I think it's a really interesting concept. Several of the platforms will also break as soon as you step on them, so that's one more added peril that adds a little luck into the equation. As a duel map I think it's perfect, as it tests not only your skill with a saber, but your skill with your surroundings. On a side note, bot support was included... but I wouldn't recommend playing with it. I think it would end up being a very boring botmatch. ;)
