Map11 interview with Xoleras
This is an interview with Xoleras, done for
Facility.zip's release, where Xoleras explains
some Map 11 strategy issues. It was conducted on IRC,
so editing was required to make the format more easily
<Bahd^QS> What do you do when you first start a Map11
game? It depends on if you are green or indy
<XoLeRaS> Well, if I am player1 I will respawn on the
plasma gun. What I will do it get it, run
out of the room, get 100 health in the closet,
run up the lift, and get the blur sphere on
the ledge. Then I will go down, get the
radiation suit, use the transporter that is
there, jump from the ledge it transports me to
onto the center platform and get the SSG.
<XoLeRaS> The main thing in level 11 is to dominate the
ring. Stay on the ring and do not let the other
player get on it. You only allow the player to
be in the shit (aka green acid) or up on the
ledges that people have to transport up to.
<XoLeRaS> Once you have control of the ring, you are
<Bahd^QS> Do you look for the other player?
<XoLeRaS> I pretty much know where the other player is
all the time, because I only give him a few
places to be. I sometimes let them go into
the room that leads to the plasma gun area
because I want them to be in there. For
example: I just got the health, i have 200%
armor, and they go into a tight spot .. hehe
bad news for them! I let them be in one of 4
places: The acid, the rocket launcher room,
the BFG room, and the ledges that you
transport up to.
<Bahd^QS> And attack these places from your
position on the ring?
<XoLeRaS> Yes that is correct. Very rarely will you
see me jump on the acid to kill.
<XoLeRaS> Another thing about this level is to have
the radiation suit on at ALL TIMES.
<Bahd^QS> there is a place to stand where you shoot
down at the person who is stuck inside the
circle of acid right?
<XoLeRaS> Well they only good spot is every where on
the ring that you can not be seen from
inside it. All yo u have to do is shoot at
the pillar that the lift switch is on, and
that will stop them from going to hit the
switch, and make them die in the shit :)
<XoLeRaS> Another thing, sounds...you have to fake
them a lot and hide them as well. Like when
you are in the middle where the SSG is, you
can run and jump on the runway to the BFG
room with out making the grunt sound when
you land on the far side of the runway. When
you make this jump while straferunning, you
will not make the grunt sound when you land.
<XoLeRaS> there a lot of tricks in that map that you
can learn, and use to get ya frags.
