    The October 2012 Standard arena rotation is now online. On the first Monday of each month, we will be now be cycling the Standard arena pool. Rather than only having access to the same standard arenas day in and day out, each month we will now feature 21 arenas selected as playable for Standard-level matches.

    Newly released arenas will remain exclusive for at least three months, but every other arena is eligible to be included in the cycle.

    Start date: Oct. 1, 2012
    End date: Nov. 5, 2012


    Almost Lost
    Beyond Reality (CTF)
    Black Cathedral
    Dismemberment
    Double Impact (CTF)
    Dredwerkz
    Duelling Keeps (CTF)
    Electric Head
    Eye to Eye
    Hearth
    Hektik
    Heros Keep
    Inner Sanctums (CTF)
    Intervention
    Leviathan
    Lost World
    Proving Grounds
    Reflux (CTF)
    Seams and Bolts
    Shining Forces (CTF)
    Spillway

    Almost lost, eye2eye, seams and bolts and spillway are TERRIBLE CA maps . Having said that im glad eye to eye's in the mappool, its kinda useful for 1v1 LGs and such. Black cathedral is also god awful for CA. An example of GOOD CA maps ( 4vs4 ) would be asylum and overkill ( quite possibly the best 2 )

    I disagree, expect for spillway being bad and overkill being good. What makes a good CA map and why Almost Lost and Seams And Bolts aren't, in your opinion?

    CA is simple, it's a slugfest : everyone plays his / her 1v1 and then survivors duke it out. A good CA map is fairly simple ; you need enough space that you can fight, but not too much that people can +back and shaft / rail. And this is coming from a massive LG player ( 58 percent use at the moment : http://www.quakelive.com/#!profile/statistics/MAR7I )
    Almost lost rewards rail from platform to platorm, nade / rocket spam, and generally +backing, hiding with rail and spam too much.
    As for seams and bolts, well, where the hell are you gonna fight in 2v2 ?
    Eye to eye is bad because of the height of the corners ( platforms ) and the lava.
    A good CA map must :
    - let enough space for people to fight, possibly close so that they can decide to focus sometimes, but not too much that rocket can't be used.
    - Not reward hiding and spamming. In fact it should harshly punish +backers. You know the kind of player who still has 200 100 when the rest of the team dies ? And uses its teammates to get better score, while costing the team rounds ? The kind who never comes meet but is close enough to rail enemies while his mates get ganged ? Yeah those guys. A good CA map must punish those kind of players pretty hard.
