I am proud to share with you my map submission to the Meet your Maker BTB forge contest.
Inspiration: When I first made the map, it was HUGE. This was because I really wanted an island that resembled apex/ silent cartographer mission from Halo CE. However as I went on, I realized I wanted the island to look cool up close, not from an unreachable Arial view. So I decided to look at Valhalla for more inspiration. And tah da, the result was an island with a canyon that holds the oh so unique battle ground.
Map Design. From Forerunner bases, a cave system, and elevated terrain, engaging in banshee dogfights or driving your buddy around in the worthog never felt so classic. This map is guaranteed to take you back to the days of halo 3, where btb maps were slightly bigger, considering the games movement mechanics The map grants long range sight lines, encouraging movement flow towards shorter range distances.
Power Weapons: 2 Snipers, neutral Laser, neutral Ravening Sliver Energy Sword.
Thank you to everyone who submitted a map to this contest! Over the next few weeks, the judges will be analyzing, testing, and discussing these maps at great length before selecting the winners and revealing them to you.
In the mean time, please feel free to continue to discuss this contest in the main contest thread.
The judges are well into the judging process for this contest and have really enjoyed looking at all of the cool, creative maps that were submitted to this contest. We look forward to closing in on the winners and announcing them within the next couple of weeks. The posters that will be sent to the winners are currently over at 343 Industries' studio being signed.
We wanted to take this opportunity to encourage everyone who submitted a map to this contest to also post it in the BTB submission thread on Waypoint if you haven't done so entirely. This thread is where maps are pulled from for review before inclusion in the Big Team Battle playlist in Halo 5, so don't miss out on that opportunity. If you have any other maps not submitted to the contest, be sure to post them there as well.
