A map that has been around for quite a while is the Factory map, and this time reto.Desji managed to find time in between his other very secret work to give it a makeover, addressing a lot of the major and minor annoyances on the map, as well as adding a solid handful of new tweaks to improve the level.

Keep reading for more details!

FACTORY ITERATION

We’ll go through the changes here in a quick list and then below you can see the devstream from June 19th where reto.desji and reto.gargamel show all these changes in magnificent moving pictures!

B-line – The Main Gate

The updates on the B-line mostly serve to help the attackers avoid getting pushed back to the Access Point too easily.

  • Access-point B1 is now a radio post on the mountain. Attackers can take B2 quickly and then continue the attack on the Factory Gate (B3).
  • “B2” now has an AA-position which can be used to suppress the mountains, to avoid enemies shelling it from the mountains & hills
  • “B2” redone and moved a bit back to prevent enemies from shelling it from afar.
  • “B3” is now the main factory gate buildings (formerly B2)
  • Additional cover added between Access Point (B1) and Factory Gate (B3)
  • Additional cover between added between Factory Gate (B3) and Objective 1

A-line – The Train Tracks

  • Added a bunch of props in A2 capture zone to make it more interesting, and enlarged the capture zone

  • Storage Hall (A3) capture zone extended to include entire storage room
