This is a remake of the first Team Battle level created for JJ2, which in turn was a loose (but recognizable) remake of battle1. Some time after, the Team Battle part was dropped and the level would be a standalone level, titled Officials vs. Competitors, probably because it was used in an Officials vs. Competitors JDC event. Since then, it’s been used in many more such events.
And then I remade it for JDC 20 because it’s a good occassion as any.
This level isn’t remotely original (contains elements from battle1, battle1xc, Dethroned, and an abandoned olcbat11 by Ragnarok) so ratings are off. Comments and reviews are very much welcome though!
Reupload: fixed a masking error, changed some ammo placement, added eyecandy to places which needed it.
Heh, I played the original Team Battle endlessly back in the days, but never realized it was based on battle1. Nice idea to remake it.
The original team battle level was not strictly a battle 1 remake, but it certainly contained elements from it. It was meant as a strong homage though, not a remake. The level used an original design that deliberately tried to avoid battle 1 style gameplay (part because it’s meant to be played with 3 hearts, and part because I never liked battle 1 much, even 10 years ago). To me, a proper “remake” of battle 1 should preserve the gameplay and overall feel of the original map, and not just have a bunch of rooms that look similar.
The level uploaded here is obviously a remake though. Also contains elements from other levels, which is interesting. Looks a lot better than my original version too, which I hope can now be considered obsolete.
Eat your lima beans, Johnny.
