Thought I make a thread to see if anyone wants to add new maps to the pool

Here is the current official map pool as of now:

1. ball_asteroids
2. ball_cave
3. ball_core
4. ball_cross
5. ball_darkwar
6. ball_funnelpark
7. ball_hardcourt
8. ball_grotto
9. ball_ice
10. ball_labyrinth
11. ball_lostcity
12. ball_mayhem2
13. ball_maze
14. ball_planepark
15. ball_snow


These are the maps that I would consider adding: (only input if you want to add something anything not said would be considered as not ready)

1. ball_ufo
2. ball_warehouse
3. ball_cutesy
4. ball_illumination
5. ball_antre
6. ball_skylands

Any other maps will not be considered.

I would definitely add antre and warehouse, imo they are both well-balanced maps. I like skylands too but others have complaints about it, so I'm not sure about that one.

Also hardcourt is in there twice :confused:

There are actually quite a few of those maps which I'd personally add. Besides from the unpredictable bounces warehouse seems to be the most polished map out of the list and should be in the pool for sure. I'd almost say the same about skylands but I think we'd all agree that this map can make for some pretty one sided games.

I'm also a big fan of ufo, not sure why, just like it.

Illumination is a lot like ice/snow/pp but still brings something new to the table. Even though the graphics may be really simple they're easy to look at and give a fun atmosphere.

I think unpredictable bounces is not a big problem if the map flows well and there are decent routes and not just clusterf*ks

I would add all of these maps into the map pool, and provide an option to veto out.

I vote skylands

Also how come reef's not up for consideration? People give it a bad rap because of all the unpredictable bounces but I think that makes it more interesting and more about passing than self-passing

Do you mean the old hardcourt or the updated version?

Imo we should vote so that each clan gives their vote on the set of maps rather than having just a handful of people voting.

I'm hoping it's the updated version. If not, that would be my suggestion

This is good, we will at least get somewhere with some concrete results. Also, reef is good :S

I never said it was a bad thing, but certainly something that I feel could be used. i.e. not finished

Illumination - Yes
Warehouse - Yes

UFO - Don't care either way

Antre - NO (definitely don't add both this and warehouse because they are too similar. I do prefer warehouse though)
Cutesy - NO
SKylands - NO

And yes I'd definitely rather see Maze added than any of these. Reef too but I am biased because it is the best HC map.

Reef & Ufo - YES
Cute & Doodle - NO
the rest - suprise me :P

Would be nice actually to play maps randomly like ladder (so u have to adjust your team tactics etc when a certain map shows up)

I personally would not like to see any of these maps added.

Gimme Antre. I think it's a map that really punishes mistakes, creating fast games that reward those who have solid fundamentals.

Hmm, I like Antre, but I never found antre all that punishing... definitely not as much as maze. On maze every death counts far more than most other maps thanks to a high spawn and ridiculously fast bottom route with a well-guided and terribly easy shot from the bottom lane as well.

Map Pool: (Please make sure your server has all these maps if you intend to use that server, add the ones on the bottom because they will be a last minute addition if added at all)
Confirmed
1. ball_asteroids
2. ball_cave
3. ball_core
4. ball_cross
5. ball_darkwar
6. ball_funnelpark
7. ball_hardcourt (original)
8. ball_grotto
9. ball_ice
10. ball_labyrinth
11. ball_lostcity
12. ball_mayhem2
13. ball_maze
14. ball_planepark
15. ball_snow


I plead for the updated hardcourt.

I think the updated hardcourt is better for ladder and pubs, but I honestly think the original hardcourt is way better for team and competitive play, the top is practically non-existant when the spawns are moved closer. If pretty much everyone else is the opposite of my thinking I will switch them.

I still love original hardcourt and prefer no changes (including for ladder). Been a very long time since I played the updated hardcourt, but I don't think I liked it nearly as much.
