This map earns the GMD Seal of Approval!

Well... my first game on MorE KarnagE was great. The balance was perfect, the humies almost had us at one point, then everything turned half way through the game as my stinger nuked a load of turrets... the humans started relocating around the map and it was a fun challenge trying to keep up with them. All in all a 57 minute game of which I enjoyed every minute of.

However, my next game wasn't so good. The spiders were rushed at the 5mins and lost at 6. Ditto for the next game. This isn't really the map's fault, it's more down to the players. If you can TRY to control your insatiable urge to rush (mentioning no names), then this map becomes something quite unique.

I know lots of people hate this map, but I don't understand why. If you let it, this map becomes highly playable. Rush it and you ruin it. It's your call.

Comment: Well... the textures all fit perfectly to the theme where they are used. The underground spider's base with it's dark walls to the open, yellow desert.

Layout

Comment: Another great map layout from KarnagE. Loads places to build and to stack to means this is one of those maps which really keep you on the run.

Creativity

Comment: There is quite a lot of creative stuff crammed into this map, from the warehouse place with all it's machinery, etc.

Overall

Comment: A good map that provides good gameplay, providing neither side gets rushed to oblivion at the 5mins mark.
