    The map is protected because I want to keep the filesize low. You can pm me if you want to check the unprotected version. Also comments and feedback are more than welcome!

    You could add more player slots for more FUN!!!!!

    Well you should have made that in the end you could still continue playing by bringing up the menu again instead of restarting again by creating another game

    Well I tried 5v5 with this map and it felt too chaotic imho. I may put more player slot but then I need to tone down the damage.

    I may do this. We'll see.

    Edit: New version is out. Host can now start an another match by typing '-r' during the score board.

    Edit2: v0.66b is out. Player cap is now 10 for those looking for some mad fun!

    The name was somewhat decieving when I clicked on this - I expected something like a long adventure map, but it's pretty damn good eitherway, good work.

    The hammer stun doesn't give out damage, And I suggest adding 1v1 matches like Gauntlet match and stuff.

    I would like it if more doodads and tile variety were used to improve the terrain. It's not horrible, but it certainly could use some improvement.

    On the other hand, I like the combat of this map very much so I'll hold off my rating until it gets updated a few times.

    I wanted an epic name. Maybe I went too far but that's how I roll.

    It sometimes fiddles but I'll try to do something about it.

    Ok, what's a gauntlet match?

    I'll try to improve it somehow even though I suck at terraining.

    So, There's a representative for each team and then he'll fight the representative for the other team. When the representative dies he gets replaced by another player and so on and so on

    Is there a glitch that only 1 person can select a ranged weapon? Because that has happened to me twice already. In both games it was blue who got it. But otherwise, great game!

    Hmm I tried to reproduce this bug with bots and real players and couldn't do it.

    Can you provide more detail? How many players you played with and which player slots were used? Did it let you see the ranged weapon selection at all and did you have any ranged weapon when you got to the battle?

    If someone is up to test this map in Garena I may be able to locate what causes the problems that some people are experiencing. 4+ people should be enough.

    if you want to add me i will play this game with you. i usually hang out in europe rpg or usa rpg you can see my username from signature. heres the replay i think you can see it there. what happens is the blue player selects a ranged weapon and the timer switches immediately to headgear: http://www.filefactory.com/file/39g8v5bm2tlt/n/LastReplay_w3g

    Thanks for this. There seems to be some more things to be fixed. The Anti-Leaver AI looked really messed, it shouldn't behave like that. I'll try to fix them asap.

    E: New version is out. The bugs should be now fixed (hopefully).
