Like St.Patrick 99% luck - 1% skill St.Valentine....why someone has to play a st.valentine map on august?
I think it would be a splendid addition to the maps. Small objective map! Certainly good for the Holiday/Fun Maps Section, whether it's dragged out in august in or February. It's a theme that can be expanded on and something we don't have now. I think however, the objective is too quick and easy...perhaps "Hold everyones Purple heart plus true love would be better" I also think that everyone's heart could be coloured something apart from purple. Purple is traditionally respected as "Valour" i believe. I think this is a brilliant start. Good work. Nice to see.
Summer - fireworks display or fireflys Halloween - pumpkin patch or trick-or-treaters Thanksgiving - dinner table XMas - XMas tree or outdoor light display Easter - Easter Egg hunt or roll or candy basket
just a couple spitballs ideas for the holidays if the basic St. Patty's Day map picks becomes the design for any holiday tradition.
