Description
I've tried many a deathmatch level, and for the most part, I've been dissatisfied. Many of the levels I've seen seem too much like 'novelty' levels, not of the quality or style of id's original maps. When I set out to make this level, I tried to keep in mind the levels from id, especially E1M1 and E1M5, which are my favorites for deathmatch. I also tried to keep the level very small and open, while always leaving at least two ways out of any area. The frags should be quick, but not necessarily 'cheap', because you can normally get out of any situation in which you may find yourself. Some rather kick-ass frags to attempt: - Shoot a rocket up the open lift from the courtyard and hit your opponent. My personal favorite. :) - Set the lift into the off from the stone room, but don't fall in. Then drop down after the lift has fully lowered, and shoot your opponent. - Shoot your opponent in mid-air as he jumps off the hallway into the courtyard.

Description             : I've tried many a deathmatch level,
                          and for the most part, I've been
                          dissatisfied.  Many of the levels
                          I've seen seem too much like 'novelty'
                          levels, not of the quality or style of
                          id's original maps.

                          When I set out to make this level, I
                          tried to keep in mind the levels from
                          id, especially E1M1 and E1M5, which
                          are my favorites for deathmatch.  I
                          also tried to keep the level very small
                          and open, while always leaving at least
                          two ways out of any area.  The frags
                          should be quick, but not necessarily
                          'cheap', because you can normally
                          get out of any situation in which you
                          may find yourself.

                          Some rather kick-ass frags to attempt:
                            - Shoot a rocket up the open lift from
                              the courtyard and hit your opponent.
                              My personal favorite. :)
                            - Set the lift into the off from the
                              stone room, but don't fall in.  Then
                              drop down after the lift has fully
                              lowered, and shoot your opponent.

                              jumps off the hallway into the
                              courtyard.
