Thanks for the review. I sometimes forget that there is some relatively new players that haven't dealt with many of my maps. 

Now that I look at the description, I did forget the #PRPL tag. That's usually a warning enough.

I mean, I'm familiar with your maps now... :p I've quite liked a number of the others, I just found the SURPRISE! YOU LOSE! factor a bit high here. Even with a warning in the description I think I would have found it frustrating, because I doubt I would have anticipated specifically that. I suppose the lesson is "save right before finishing off any enemy structure when playing a Sorrontis map", except that I've been just fine without doing that on all the others I've played so far...

Yeah, I haven't been particularly evil with my PF maps... CW3 however, that's a different story.

All my maps (11/12) lately get sub 5 ratings.

Have I lost my touch?

No, this is a good map.  Personally, I would say an 8.5 is fair.

My times where:
44:11
21:19
15:45

I know I can shave another minute as well.  On that last run, I mistimed my attack on the third corner, suffered heavy losses and had to rebuild and try it again.

I'm not sure how svartmes pulled off that 11:25 time though.

This map asks you to create and execute a strategy at each point, which is exactly what I like. At first I had no idea how anyone could possibly survive when the stunners start flying, so when after a few tries I managed to take and hold a corner that felt pretty good. From that point things went smoother and I got a 13:49 time.

While the corners seem pretty similar, they're different enough that each attack is its own challenge.

As I played this map, I kept hearing a voice saying "Something wicked this way comes."

Since there wasn't an IRS agent coming to the door I had to assume the voice was coming from the nether-regions of Sorrontis' map. Someone asked why there wasn't a warning about what happens at the end...

There IS a warning. After the title it specifically states those two powerfully ominous words that would even make Ghost Rider cringe - "By: Sorrontis". That's your warning. Here's your sign.  :o

After preparing for the worst, I realized the bomb shelter I dug under the shed in the backyard overnight might have been a bit overkill. But if you finish a Sorrontis map, you deserve a break today. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BqRH8wEsaVQ

Fun map, m8! In a mostly evil sort of way... ;D
