Description
de_terra
by Charles_K
Max. Players: 32

Crafted for competitive play

Read my overview of the map here (thought processes on creating the map, wallbanging spots, grenade and boost spots, etc.): http://csgomap.blog.com/2013/04/21/de_terra/

My goal was to introduce a competitive CS:GO map with all the 1.6-esque elements of a good map that everyone loves: a high emphasis on varied strategies, tactics, rotations, picking, rushing, and of course, advanced movement (bunny hopping, circle strafing, player boosting, etc.). I wanted to take the best elements of popular/famous maps like Dust2, Italy, Mirage, and such and put them into one map.

Both CT's and T's have a variety of ways to play it fast or slow, up-close or at a distance (thus allowing for a variety of weapons to use), thus avoiding a stagnant way to play as either team (eg. CT's always playing 3 A and 2 B as an optimal setup during gun rounds in Inferno). Smoke bounces, player boost spots, prop placements, and many more have been meticulously thought out and placed with 5v5 competitive play in mind, from every single crate's height and position to how each railing is (or isn't) clipped. The map should be visually simple enough to really have players pop out and be easily seen as in 1.6, yet varied and pretty enough that the map's layout and landmarks would be memorable and not too "dull". You'll be able to learn the map's layout in a couple minutes, yet you can spend hours tinkering with ninja spots, positions to play for both teams, smoke and flash spots, etc.

Special Thanks go to:

TopHATTwaffle - for letting me use his custom waterfall textures

My brother, Howard, Andrew - for testing and contributing some key ideas to the map
