Gridlocked: By Draw the LineThis map won Forge Hub's Best of Forge competition (Spring/Summer) for Best Overall Map.IntroductionGridlocked is a symmetrical map that uses the entire floor of foundry. Boxes are stacked vertically throughout the map creating a grid-like structure, which is where the name derives from. Now while the map looks vertical, most of the battle takes place directly on the ground. The nature of the map creates a unique playing space. It offers long lines of sight while still proving mid to short ranged combat. Whatever your playing style is, it's supported here.Map DesignThe design of Gridlocked is very simple, but it's the simplicity of the map that makes it so much fun to play on time and time again. The map has 5 points of interest. 4 in each corner of the map, and one at the very center where a lot of the traffic meets. These 5 points of interest cause the entire map to be used, which allows for balanced, fun gameplay.ScreenshotsImage of the basesBack of mapCenter spineCenter Spine 2View from sniper perchAttacking from main isleTeamworkWeaponsGridlocked holds a strong arsenal of weapons, but each hold their pros and cons based on their location and usage. Because lines of sight are so limited, it allows weapons to be placed much closer than what would be found in other maps.2x Ghost2x Mongoose2x Gun Turret2x Sniper Rifle6x Battle Rifle4x SMG2x Shotgun2x Needler2x Plasma Pistol1x Hammer1x Flame Thrower1x Spartan Laser1x Bubble Shield2x Shield Regenerator6x Plasma10x Frag GrenadeAuthor's NotesI've had a great length of time to playtest this map, 9 months to be exact. But those 9 months of testing, modifying and testing have really made a difference. I feel like I've come across every glitch and every problem imaginable, but I've managed to solve them all (I hope). I hope you enjoy this map as much as I have building and testing it. There have been times when I've thought this was the never ending project, but I think it's time I set it down and picked up something new. Thank you to everyone who helped test Gridlocked and offered feedback, it wouldn't have come this far without you guys.
