Instead of rent let's compare our best placings in Halo esports. Who'd like to start?

I'm #1 for Overall Score in Cod MWR if that counts for anything

While we've got nothing better to do, I was thinking: why do we call them "maps?" Why is "Plaza" or "Truth" or "Midship" or any of those a "map." Basically, when did the three dimensional space that a match takes place on begin to be called a map, which, as far as I can tell in this context, only refers to a two dimensional visualization of some three dimensional space? I'm pretty sure this naming convention predates Halo, or am I wrong there? In some games, you'll hear the word "level" used, and this has a slightly easier to see connection to the design of older video game, but in modern FPS's, I think the word "map" is used pretty ubiquitously. I wonder how that came to be. Any thoughts?

First and only placing at a Halo tournament. MLG Chicago 2005. Knocked out first round of FFA. Lost first round of the bracket, and then lost first round of loser's bracket. Only won 1 game between the 2 series.

Saw this on waypoint, I thought it was a good representation of customization and matchmaking with 343

I found out H3 is going to be backwards compatible and I just stopped by to say that I don't even really like H3 (I play CE #3skmagnumftw) but I plan on playing a shit load of H3 if it will finally make 343 realize that classic Halo is the key to success.

It would be cool to see where the first usage of "map" was in reference to an FPS multiplayer level.

I got you fam, kinda

 

"Used to describe arenas in competitive multiplayer games in which the gameplay is heavily dependent on terrain design (such as real-time strategy games and multiplayer first-person shooters). This term is also often carried over into single-player games, also to describe levels with a high degree or scope in terrain design, or simply as the sum of all the game's areas."
