We had the idea for this map a long time ago, but only recently decided that we had the necessary skills to make and release it.

The map has four
EXTREMELY tall platforms located in the middle of a large crater on the surface of the moon. Each player spawns on one of the platforms and the goal is to nock the other players off of the platforms to their deaths.

In order to accomplish this goal, each player has a wrist mounted device that fires an explosive energy bolt. The device is incapable of dealing direct damage to other players, so the player must use the shockwave created by the explosion to throw his/her opponents off.

We (jawa and I), only have a little more work to do before it is ready for release. Unfortunately we are completely stumped on a name for the map, SO any suggestions for names are welcome.










All custom content (everything except crewmen and master chief) was created by either Jawa or me.

Thanks for the compliments.

We plan to release as soon as possible. All we have left to do is: create sound effects, add some finishing touches to the animations, and come up with a good name.

We are really busy with college work right now, but we hope to release sometime this coming week.

Will there be additional maps with new arenas/challenges?

We havn't decided sure whether or not it will be our next project, but we do already have a rough design for the next "arena." I guess it really depends on how popular this map ends up being with the community.

I am really encouraged by all of the positive comments that we have gotten already, thanks for the support.

btw, quick update: I finished up with the animations today, so all we have to do now is sounds FX and find a good map name.

@Tiel: Thanks for the suggestion, we are considering it but we havn't decided yet.

Looking forward to playing this :D

I think a suitable map name would be "(h3)_olympicos_combato_beta_publica_uno"


...Jokes, try "Intrepid" or "Zenith" or "Technicolor_ii"

E: "Zenith" is (unfortunately) already taken...

Lol, I actually kinda like Zenith. Too bad it is already taken.


Quick Update:
Jawa fixed the instructions board so that it looks more like it should.

Not that it particularly matters (because maybe this isn't taking place at the same time as the games), but Halo takes place in 2552, rather than 2052.

Random thought, but maybe you could make something a bit more.... gladiatorial for your next map. Brutal arena combat!

If you're referencing the time of Master Chief and the events of most of the Halo games, I think it was around 2552 not 2052.

@Echo77 & Xoronatus: I just randomely picked a date and stuck it in there, I couldn't remember exactly when Halo took place.

@Olly12345: We would like to make several of these, if this one is pretty popular when we release then we will continue making them. We already have a rough design for the next "arena"

Actually that isn't quite right. There are four platforms, and each contestant spawns on one of them. The goal is to knock your opponents from the platforms.

You can jump from from platform to platform. But it is a little more violent than just an obsticle coure

Are all of the images showing up for you? There is one that shows the rules. If the images are not showing up, try right clicking on them and them clicking "show image" and/or clearing your browser cache.

Looks like a creative map, makes me linger for the good old fusion frenzy days.
Oh and to others, don't give the troll above me any attention. They are like flood, starve them to death.

Dude makes me think that it's AC all over again.

I think it'd be great if they did a sort of 'capture the flag' thing on a map, except that one team has to defend a large hill in the arena or something, and the other team has to take it. It'd be a cool gladiator type thing.

I don't mind answering the question again, it lets me know that people are still interested :)

The idea is for all of these maps to be on some sort of large platforms located in a crater on the moon to keep the general feel of the map. The next map will probably have the same basic objective, but the arena will be.... shall we say.... more interesting

Also, I plan to add a new and unique feature to the wrist device for each map. Some kind of unique ability that is specific to whatever the particular challenge is.

We have considered something of the sort. It will not be the next arena, but possibly after that. We will have to be really creative if we want to keep this up and keep it interesting and fun.
