Breeders will get very frustrated with this map. There are very few decent spots for base location, and the fact that the initial spider base is so campable means that any breeders will have their luvly work destroyed before the first minute.

The humans base has a droning flyby from the Q2 single player missions at exactly the same interval. Maybe this is to encourage you to leave... the base itself has one door and all the spawns packed together, perfect for a 1.2b kami. There are some nice spots in other rooms, you can get onto pipes etc for a nice base, but again, this won't last long.

The majority of the map consists of long bland corridors and big open rooms. This does not give you much cover for any unit, and building is made all the more difficult. The map isn't terribly large, but can still offer a fun game as long as the spider's base isn't decimated at the 5mins 1sec mark by some people.

The Rage isn't a bad map, a few fixes such as a better spider base and some cover in the corridors and open areas would make it very playable.
