What happened to highlands?

I was looking through older forum posts and noticed one made a while back by Marox in which he showcased the ballista and a map called the highlands. However, 3 years later after release and theres no trace of this map. Idk why they gave up on it but I think it’d be a good idea for the devs to add it to the game as we are currently lacking in map diversity and it seemed to be a pretty good simple map. We have castles, mountains, camps, pits but we’re still missing a simple map that takes place on grassland. From the looks of it it seems to be a pretty nice looking map that would work well with skirmish and maybe even the upcoming ranked mode.

Heres a link to the post:

Highlands is nothing more than a small map made for showcasing. It doesnt have any content really. We'll be getting other maps soon tho!

I genuinely feel bad for lazy..

A youthful more optimistic lazy was looking forward to a similar rehash of one of his favorite maps only to have his dreams crushed from a reckless statement made by Duck 3 years later.

Highlands was removed because they realised it was an open space and didn't have enough shit to get stuck on thus going against their design philosophy.

The problem is: How do you imbalance a map that is just open space? It's easy to criticize but it's hard to come up with actually good ideas to make that map completely one-sided!

Careful looking through old posts bud, you'll stumble on mean words and they could give you PTSD

This is why I thought it had so much potential. What we need is simply an open space without any objects to interfere, giving everyone an equal chance of winning. It could be like the default map because of this.

dam if only they communicated like that now...

Would be nice to see whats coming and steer the forum community to a positive light instead of the troll infested shit
show its become.

highlands does look like a cool map that would be pretty bug free, its a shame its not going to be released.

Yeah it's only taking them 3 or 4 months to produce a single map after over a million copies sold, we'll likely have 2 new maps by christmas and mod support when Chivalry 2 comes out. Yay :D

Soon™
