    "New Map Monday"

    The first Monday of each month, we add at least one new map to each of the servers that carries multiple/custom maps. Some of these maps may still be in alpha/beta stages of development, but all have been screened for initial quality, and deemed fit for No Heroes players to evaluate.

    SO...this month's additions are as follows:

    CTF HEAVEN

    Map: CTF SteamRoll:

    Objective: Capture The Enemy Intelligence

    Gameplay: 2 very small bases facing each other. Teams have 90 seconds to capture the enemy Intelligence. If a player dies he is sent to his teams spectator room where he must wait until the next round. The first team to capture the intelligence wins the round. The entire losing team is then steamrolled by a train as punishment. The first team the capture the intell 10 times, wins.

    Map: CTF Skybase (Beta 1):

    This is a capture the flag map in the setting of a floating sky base. There are two main directional routes and the map is mirrored so learning it isn't going to be a problem.

    Map: CTF Orient (Alpha 2):

    Red and BLu build bases somewhere in the mysterious hidden mountains of the far east. Of course they are once again after each others intel.


    PAYLOAD EXTREME
    Map: PL Borax (Beta 2):

    Borax is pretty much just rocks. Rock, rock rock. Rocks everywhere! Push the cart through the checkpoints until the last one. The last point is the rocket. This is your objective. Destroy it or loose. With the help of the powerful fan under the rocket the barrel cart flies up and hits the rocket. Nifty eh?

    Capture all points as attacker before the times runs out.

    ARENA
    Map: Arena Coalmine (Beta 1):

    This still-in-development arena map brings a polished visual style centered around the usual fast-paced action of Arena.

    As always, all the above maps have been compressed and uploaded to our dedicated fast-download server. In addition, all the above maps are live on the servers RIGHT NOW.

    ENJOY!

    Yeah, I saw Borax on TF2maps.net, and it looks fucking sweet.

    I have to say, kudos on adding Borax to PE, it's one of the better maps the server now offers.

    Now if we could just try out the new Zig...still saddened about the kinks needed to be worked out with Cashworks :/

    No - sorry, but my in-box is already filled everyday with people telling me how we should be running our servers. If I listened to everyone's different opinion, we'd have a whole hell of alot of empty servers right now. You guys all just have to trust that I can sniff out some decent maps.
