Mapping contest review -CEVO-
2013-04-21 10:48
Hi!
I just do a test CEVO Mapping contest top 10 maps to see how it looks "maps", and here are my thoughts:

I will post here by the best rating;

de_sanguinis
Quite a good map, maybe the best of all maps @contest. Textures are pretty fine(also a good fps), simply map with a few cool things and ways to attack a site. If someone would ask me, I would choose this map to be a part of competitive scene. Also, give look on B site which a bit reminds on de_inferno with a few changes.
Map rate: 9/10



de_pressure
Together with de_sanguinis, one of the best map @contest. Clean and easy textures, the sites are pretty good, nice arranged. Things like forklift, truck, and some boxes makes this map good.
Map rate: 8/10



de_conduit
Pretty good map, fine textures. A bit textures reminds on de_mill, sites are good distributed. Things like boxes, are on the right places.
Map rate: 7/10



de_frost_se
Overall, not bad map. Pretty good/simple textures, also this train makes sense. Things I hate on this map are some boxes and a bit snow.
Map rate: 6/10



de_gwalior
Many of guys luv this map, but in my opinion this is not good map for competitive scene, more for public play. Also, too much colors and a bit stupid approach to B site.
Map rate: 5/10



de_rails_b1
Overall not bad map at all, but a bit big A site, also some boxes needs to be removed.
Map rate: 5/10



de_kyrenia
Standard map, but too much details imo, grass in sites(low fps), sun effects and so on.
Map rate: 4/10



de_fireholl_se
One of the worst maps I've ever played on. Why? Because here is like one million passage/input/rooms/corridor. Player models on this map are also a big fail. Too much texture details. Can be used at public servers.
Map rate: 2/10



de_cefalu_go
This map looks nice on screenshots, but when you play on it you change opinion about map and it's like: Too much details, unnecessary grass/boxes/flowers/palms and so on. Quite a bad and complicated map.
Map rate: 1/10



de_sewage
You love this map, are you kidding me? There is something worse than the worst and that's this map. A bunch of unnecessary things like million fences, passage, details. When I play on this map, I don't feel like I play Counter Strike. Overall, quite a bad map, and don't deserve to be a part of professional competitive scene really.
Map rate: 0/10

So how can you rate sewage 0/10 if it's perfect and both-sided (we played 15-15)? Just middle door has noise bug, sound bugs all arround the map and T can run on B faster than CT's, but that's nothing.

8/10 min.

For me it's a pretty bad map, and don't deserve to be a part of professional competitive scene really. Too much details.

:D hahahahaha

gwalior reminds me of team fortress
2013-04-21 12:58:20
de_conduit is my pick.
Most of maps looks imbalanced and unsuited for competitive play regardless.
@ON MY LEVEL, idk why do you think that de_sanguinis is a good map, imo its balance just looks terrible. Idk how can you expect to hold off bombsites with just 2-3 cts when terrorists have so much freedom on map. Pathways between bombistes look too long and dangerous for rotating cts as well.

de_conduit however looks like to be well balanced map for competitive gemaplay. It looks like it`s also the only map with balanced timings for reaching both bombsites from both spawns.

alll map sucks
de_inferno_ce for competentive gaming!
2013-04-21 14:57:44
We have de_inferno already.
2013-04-21 15:25:18
then replace it with inferno_ce because inferno_ce is definitely the better one.
2013-04-21 17:05:13
i dont know why de_sanguinis isnt played competetive. it's really good.
2013-04-21 15:10:59
Kinda off topic but:
Does someone know what happened to de_tuscan, de_season etc? Why isnt de_season in any map pools but shitty map like de_cache is? :X

tuscan is still, for god knows what reason, not finished, probably either never gonna be in go or some other mapmaker will make it.

season for go is in the beta state atm
2013-04-21 18:19:45
good
2013-04-21 15:25:09
No new maps will ever be played, because pro players do not want to put the time in to learn whole new strategies etc.

Same thing happened to quake, this is why FPS games will die.

Organisers need to FORCE new maps.

+1

first time I agree with you.
2013-04-21 17:05:53
same :D
2013-04-21 17:58:06
I know that feeling xD
2013-04-21 18:49:31
I totally agree with you! Pros are disgusting with their close-mindedness. I remember some of them were even whining about new guns! Good thing Valve ignored those idiots :>
Now they need to do same with new maps. Host a tourney(pleeeeeeeaaaaaaaase Valve do it!) with these maps and done! New maps, new strategies and new everything for viewers!
2013-04-21 18:02:24
"Pros are disgusted with their close-midledness." lolololol

sanguinis
2013-04-21 18:04:25
de_frost_se should be played in every single online/offline event, it's a really good map.
