Tyrant vs. Tyrant

Fine tuned maps have to be changed, that's a rule. Now the Tyrant. Which one should we keep? V3 or The Renovation version? Or both? Your opinions are welcome.

Without having it played I say: Keep the old one.
It's perfectly balanced and I honestly don't want to get our whole server being flooded by new superweapons and imba vehicles. Those maps are already played too often in the rotation anyway.

I've played it before, and I can tell the main differences :

1) no badger anymore (sry b! ) replaced by tyrant, a scorpion which fires goliath rockets
2) core goliath replaced by light tank (a mobile link turret, 1 seat)
3) 2 nodes more protected, and therefore more easier to get
4) some other vehicles repalcement like hellbender by hellhound

Personally, I prefer this map coz it's less spammy than the other, since goliath can't camp on slopes (and if one other vehicule camps it's useless coz it can't get any node)

That's why I prefer this map, and since I like tyrant I agree with the idea of two tyrant

btw, what about also masterbath renovation ? Less replacements, but looks better

I am working on an own renovated MasterBath which is 99% true to the original, just looking better.

That just got delayed by other projectes.

tyrant renovation is SO much better than what we had before!
thx for upping it so quickly foibos =)

i agree with ice on this one. prefer the new version due to the following reasons:

a) badger is finally gone, base goliath is gone --> way less basecamping and annoying badger-runs the whole match through - this is pretty much what drove most ppl crazy and make them leave on the "old" tyrant.
b) the link tank is very useful, it can take down goliath quite quickly when being close, help to build nodes over quite a distance and kill infantry on middle and close distance, without being armored to much (so u can also kill it quickly)
c) same goes for that "tyrant" scorpion - better choice than this ridiculously overpowered scorpion that exists on meadowland, powerfull shot (like badger) but easier to shoot down and only 1 seat and no minigun (fortunately)

d) the side nodes are covered and therefore u can survive there and heal it even when the goliath spams it. some health there as well (would be cool to have some at middle node) - also, bc of the roof, these side nodes are harder to attack from the lightning-gun-spots

what i don't like is the hellhound replacement... hellbender is totally enough. but maybe that's just me.

plus - the middle node is still VERY hard to re-capture by foot (when a tank is there, almost impossible w/o with the help of a tank of your own or a redeemer)
more cover there would be nice... maybe some pillars or boxes? just some.

if we can't edit it, i'd still be content with this renovated version. it's a trillion times better. seriously.

Thom has said all:
-infantry is now covered from the stupid goliath spam and can easily build the nodes.
-this new scorpion is less stronger than the badger, it has less life
-no badger spam any more at the middle of the map
-link tank is very powerful but not resistant, you can destroy it enough easily

The new version is for me, better than the old, but we can keep the old online

After few requests and long deciding I've replaced the Renovation with the old V3, hovewer the V3 isn't perfect and I'd like to ask some modder for an experimental edit:

1. Replace the Hellbenders with EONS Hellbenders
2. Replace the Goliaths at bases with Railgun Tanks
3. Replace the Scorps at 1 and 3 with EONS Scorps
4. Copy the following jumppads to V3

5. Copy these grates to V3

Both versions available on our SkyDrive:

Thank you.
