    Re: New map named Kodiak! Thoughts?

    Command spawn is difficult with knowledgeable marines. In fact, Command hive start was an often loss. I'd like to lock it at Hangar/MS personally.

    The keys to this map are the control of observation and south biosphere. Marines hold either, and they hold the forward tech point.

    Aliens have to keep marines out of Server. That place just plain sucks. Long hallway and necessary for cysting.

    FWIW, reminder: we can override/create any spawns on any map.

    is there only the one set spawn for marine/alien? has anyone tested it with other spawns (rad?)?

    Kodiak is a great map, but it seems to have the same problem as Eclipse for Marines in that they do not have one more node close to their base. Aliens have the res advantage earlier, adding to their natural res advantage, and thereby disturbing balance in the game. Imho....

    I guess the more games are played the more accurate this data becomes. Also people are still getting used to the map, so the balance may shift slightly in the future.

    My "data" may yet be too anecdotal, but Marines seem to have to work considerably harder than Aliens to hold nodes. All while Aliens generally need fewer nodes than Marines to survive.

    Kodiak is a pretty fun map (much more enjoyable gameplay than Eclipse if comparing, imo) but they do need to work on some wayto accurately represent the foliage on the map overlay. Over the past months when I've played Kodiak it would never fail that I would take a route thinking that I would have decent LoS only to be blocked by foliage (btw, I've found it's super easy to lerk-spike the crap out of people in the big rooms covered in trees since alienvision "sort of" shows heat (...if you will) and all the marines have is a flashlight which will really just light up the trees in front of them and not see through the trees (...if you will).

    I hope they fix it so the vents are visible on the commander screen, there's a lot like that right now on the map.

    Yea, and it'll probably stay up there for a while.

    It's a great map, and very balanced actually. According to ns2stats, it's pretty close to 50/50 balance right now. For those still apprehensive about it, I encourage you to just give it a chance, learn the map. It's one of my favorite maps right now.

    It's interesting. Had a number of long stalemates on it, though, but that could be due to the newness. It doesn't seem to foster nearly as much rath as eclipse does, so it might be more play as people get used to it.

    Haven't had a chance to play a legitimate match on it, although I loaded the beta before and explored it. I'm curious how the central portion of the map, with the large open but foliage filled biodome area will pan out for different lifeforms.

    Looking forward to playing the map with you lovely folks though!

    New map named Kodiak! Thoughts?

    Just saw the trailer for it and am excited to get back in the game. From what I saw though I recognize the map from what I saw on a french server a while back. Probably when it was in beta? How's the map?
