Easy, Both Linear. Legends is tier 2 and Rebel is tier 1
Had a look, not sure on either at this stage. The fog on Legends I don't really get, and if you remove it the map looks unfinished, doesn't seem overly user-friendly. Teddi felt RR was more an arena map apparently.
I agree with legends but I honestly think rebels would be a good fast map
Will let Teddi comment on RR!
It's a map I really like, but it's not suited for skill surf is the short of it. I've had loads of fun on it in the past, but it's better for ol arena surf.
For the easy server:
Will take a look through these. If you're on our Discord group then message me and I'll add you to the mapping committee group on there.
KSF are holding a spring mapping competition at present and it's spawning some great looking maps, so more inclined to look at adding some of those at the moment. Had a look through list and some quick thoughts. I'm by no means an expert so will post to Discord group too.
Not at This Time
surf_animals_ksf - Looks messy, some of the bhops are a bit obnoxious, at times not overly clear (the videos I saw weren't great quality).
surf_graphia_njv - Doesn't really bring anything new but not awful, ending looked a bit poor.
surf_funhouse_v1 - Don't really understand the gravity areas, pretty sure would just frustrate new players.
surf_concreteideas - Lazy uninspired mapping consisting of 3 whole textures.
surf_tricky_chaos - Not really a fan of the various gimmicks they've included, doesn't really flow well.
surf_mom - Final stage puts me off, 3 bhops in a row? Minus points for the dumb name.
surf_waterworks - Could be one for Tier 2-6, don't see it on Easy myself.
surf_the_gloaming_v2 - Doesn't really bring anything new but not awful.
surf_desolate - Not awful, bit bland, probably fits on Tier 2-6 over Easy.
please add surf_activation and surf_sanctuary, both very fun high tier 1/ low tier 2 maps
Hey interestingly I have both maps on my shortlist, need to understand if Activation belongs on Easy or better fit for 2-6 server, same for Sanctuary which I feel is Tier 2 rather than 1 (which the mapper confirmed in comments).
I think they'd both suit the server perfectly since the server has signifigantly easier settings than other surf servers, and they're both WAY easier than many of the maps you already have on the easy server (squirrelsonvacation, kitsune2 and so on are much harder)
surf_rebel_resistance - Easy linear and pretty short
surf_aircontrol - Another easy linear and also pretty short
This was brought up on discord recently, it holds a special place in my surf heart but isn't really fit for either server.
Has surf_drifting ever been considered for the hard server? Honestly one of the coolest maps imo
Will present to Mapping Committee, to me it's too dark and not clear where to go, but will collate feedback.
I know I’ve only been posting individual maps. Next time I’ll try and do numerous in one post.
what about surf_holiday for easy server? T2, 4 stages. Looks like a cross between summer and minimum wage.
Seen this one suggested a few times and saw it the day it released - I don't personally like the ahop gimmick jumping on the inflatables 3 in a row, I can see it frustrating newer players as it's not something expected on Easy. Could appear at some point, it also doesn't help at times it's not the most clear where to go (ramps similar texture to terrain etc) and zero signage.
