Roundabout2
Overview

Unique and super fun to play. Looks are also very simple but still nice looking, and not causing fps drops for sure! Both maps are big enough for publics but at the same time small enough for 3VS3 matches.

Roundabout2 seems very, very unbalanced, but judging from #soldat.realistic gather statistics, it's almost 50/50.

This map was considered as default for 1.5. Didn't make it. Case closed, locked.

Edit: Based on information I got from realistic community, case open.

I've never found it boring even though I've played it much. Why would it? Being simple doesn't always mean it has to become boring.

I like being honest, I hate it, spray map and like As de Espada said, I also think it's going to get boring, realistic mode is also abit different, "you can't see anyone sneaking around"

maybe this can be a great map for realistic, but most of the times it will not be played on realistic.
Can't see a reason to be default

-edit-
one extreme example would be adding a DuckHunt map in the defaults, because the map plays great on DuckHunt!

This map got unique idea. Also it's clear that it works, it has always been sort of popular at soldat.gather custom (which has been inactive last months though).

It's one KILL KILL KILL map, but in the end those maps are liked, at least in SCTFL perspective. Roundabout's best area isnt public 5on5, but it's not the worst of maps there either.

I don't usually enjoy map too much myself, mostly cos I sort of suck when playing there. I think it's great layout in any case and doesn't get boring.

Well, atlest it got some kinda of vertically things that actually works. I enjoy that map on #soldat.realistic too much, but i dont think it works on arcade mode.
Anyway i would to see that map as default, but it not gonna happen.

It does work in normal mode aswell. If that wasn't the case I wouldn't be here praising the map.

As far as I remember, this map wasn't as big of a killfest as X. At least it was different since I remember how I hated X from the very beginning because of how chaotic it was. I feel like this map kept the order even somehow. It's been a while since I played neither of the maps though.

Edit: Attached a fixed and slightly modified (rounded right-hand corners & added ice to the ceiling for better glide) version.

This doesn't work in R/S, you got to take that community into consideration also. That is also why I'm against Freefall.

Default maps are there to play default mode(s).
People can still download maps when they join a server and people can also still leave a map from the maplist.
