Parallelogram

Parallelogram is my Ricochet map submitted to the Certain Affinity contest.  It's a Medium (ish) sized, arena styled, inverse symmetrical map that features a bridge that connects both bottom portions of each base. 

I'd like to formally apologize for being able to only place two trees on the map... I feel like I let you guys down.  I'm sorry.

I think you could do better with the name on this map

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

My suggestion is Rhombus since the map's more of a square shape.

AND LESS SYLLABLES.

Haha

It's actually called Parallax, but cause the original is still in the contest (and I wanted to make changes to it and then upload it to my fileshare) I just changed the name.  Parallelogram was just the first thing that popped into my head when I was renaming it.  :)

Although, the bridge kinda looks like a parallelogram, if you cut it in half, turned one side upside down and then twisted it 180 degrees... so there's that too.  ;)

I think all of your maps should be named after trees.  Spruce has a nice ring to it.  ;)

What's changed from the version you submitted to the contest?

I've always been a fan of weeping willow trees.  :)
I did have this crazy idea to merging multiple trees into one big tree, with roots growing out of the ground bursting through the cement... 

As far as changes, not too much changed.  I made that ledge on the closed sides of the bases that take you from the small ramp back towards the catwalks where the needler spawns.  I cleaned up the rocks on the bases, removed the trees closed side where people could camp outside the soft kill zone and added all the other gametypes.  Nothing too major.
