map notes
This is a map. You're in a place full of ice. You gotta clean dust. It's pretty hard.

I apologize if the map seems a little bare. It was difficult to find appropriate scenery without spoiling the effect or making things hard to see. As it is, places with dust/spikes are marked with a darker overlay.

There is also a Gordon Freeman sitting inside an ice block.

Difficulty: Probably as hard as This Map is Purple

this maps route makes no sense to me, and you can frequently spread dust in very annoying places.

Also not really hard or comparable in difficulty to purple imo

The map looks nice, and plays alright, a few too many dust traps, that I had to watch my replays to figure out though.

This map reeks of lack of playtesting. It looks great and has good gameplay potential, but bad platform/spike placement that causes random dust spreading everywhere is just so easy to avoid, and makes the map unpleasant.

Apart from dust spreading and routing issues... Very hard for me to tell the difference between dust and spikes on a wall

For reals though, this map was pretty difficult for me and the art is a bit confusing, but I liked the map.  It's nice to at least see people trying more creative obstacles and art, and I have a soft spot for icy maps.  Once I watched some replays I think I appreciated the route more, but who knows how much of what I watched there was an "intended" strat.

Loved the map enough to go for WR, but can't find where i'm missing dust so gave up.

EDIT: I'm missing it somewhere besides the backheavy, I beat that run and collected all the dust in that spot but it anon'd.

Thanks for the feedback. I'm glad most of you liked the aesthetics of the map. I was sort of playing around with lighting/fog when I saw how cool those spikes look with a white overlay.

I guess I kind of suck at telling how difficult my maps are in general. Sorry about that. Personally, I found the map around as hard as Purple, but I guess weird things are hard for me.

Its hard to tell if you actually understand what the main problem with this map was. Theres only 11 people that have SS'd this map. I recognize all of the names there, which means that you haven't even taken the time to play your own map. I also don't think that you tested it at all when you made it, or else you would have seen some of its glaring issues. At the VERY least, you need to make sure that you, or 1 other person has played through it before publishing.

It was bad, but I don't think it was hard. For most people, it was frustrating. Don't submit a map you can't SS yourself, as a general rule.
