Default SaLoT Announces His Forge Retirement

The man responsible for maps like Onslaught, Redemption, Dispatch and Simplex is finally throwing in the towel

I probably spent at least a year total of my life in forge since 07. I put out a lot of maps some good some really bad, but always enjoyed every map i did. I wanted to build maps for the love of it, not for the popularity ( Forger popularity is like donating money to bill gates =/ ) I wanted people to enjoy my maps and if i could have one person say i love or like this map then i felt i did my part. But sadly this went from love of design to a contest and this is where i lost the passion to forge.

I want every forge to feel what i have felt from the past 6 years pure enjoyment. I have met some cool people some like Nitro that i honestly can say, i love and respect like a brother. I have met some not so nice people, but despite i still respect them in a weird way. Shh i won't tell you who those are, i will keep it a secret. >3

But what this post was just trying to say is thanks.. I really enjoyed my time building maps and seeing it being played on the main stage like MLG,UGC,AGL,EGL and all other local tournaments. I will finish my last map confined up and then call it quits. Thanks for the great memories and for the enjoyment i have gotten from this all. I will ask now that my maps be replace and removed from the competitive scene to allow other forgers to have a chance to experience what i have.

I really respect and love this community and would like to say this as my final words.


I Love you all from the bottom of my heart.. Thank you =)

You sicken me.

Jk butsrs

Both MLG and AGL saw something in them though. I've always loved the more arena-esque maps for competitive gameplay and Onslaught happened to be one of my favorite for H3 (aside from Pit) while Simplex is probably my current favorite for H4.

I'm not really saying they're bad, i just didn't like them. Actually redemption was awful, really really really fucking awful.

Lol, well I can't attest for any Reach maps considering I didn't play much at all. I don't recall there being many good ones though.

Reach had some extremely good maps, redemption wasn't one of them.

Are any of those on-disc though?

I remember liking Countdown(I think that's what it's called anyway). That's all I can think of.

Countdown and Powerhouse would have been incredible if they had snipers (still really enjoyed powerhouse though), but obviously bungie dint no wat 2 d0. The BTB maps were great, the remakes that came on the disc (ascension/sanc/), cage. I loved halo reach's maps, i just didn't really care for the game all that much until the TU. Which 343 then royally fucked up by adding then removing bleedthrough, they then proceeded to carry their awful decision making into the abortion that is halo 4.

Ooooooo, I distinctly recall not liking Powerhouse. Wasn't that in the beta?

BTB after Halo 2 means nothing to me, I guess that's why I didn't notice those.

Yes it was, loved that map for KOTH/anything in multi team/Snipers. Was also pretty solid in TO.
