For large FFA and team play.
Use Map Settings for team play.

The sword and the faith

The map is very ill-formed with a lot of unnatural corridors, awkwardly shaped mains, and no real layout to speak of. Even unsymmetrical maps, good ones anyway, have a cohesive idea that they are built around so that it doesn't just become a splattered canvas.

I'd recommend scrapping this and starting again after you've come up with what you want the concept of the map to be, and have executed it with some semblance of form.

You can reference my old melee mapping video here and the melee mapping guide here for additional help.

Yeah, I agree a lot with what Ex said. The mains, and expos even, are very awkwardly shaped, and won't make for good bases. The middle is wasted by the large body of water, and in an 8-player FFA map, you really need as much space as you can get.

Here's an 8-player FFA map I made not too long ago that Ex cleaned up and made better. You can see the general direction around it, which leads to plausible gameplay. Try replicating something like this, or start with a smaller map (maybe 4-player) and then expanding that to an 8-player version.

Memes gather, and now my watch begins. It shall not end until my death. I shall take no wife, hold no lands, father no children. I shall wear no crowns and win no glory. I shall live and die at my post. I am the sword in the darkness. I am the memer on the walls. I am the shield that guards the realms of memes. I pledge my life and honor to the Meme's Watch, for this meme and all the memes to come.
