    Hey!
    I am really tired of not knowing what to nominate on HoC. Would be awesome to see what u people think are Just please give a brief description or if u want a more in-depth description of the map.
    Would also appreciate it if you link the maps workshop link.

    My fav maps right now,

    kz_ominous2 *short ~1-3min map but really nice layout & all around solid fun map to run.

    kz_rockjungle_v2 *short ~1-2min map. I really like the flow of this map, doesn't get boring to grind either.

    kz_catalyst *medium-short ~2-4min map. Classic map, has everything u want really in a kz map, fun to grind.

    Short list, but I really want to add some more maps to it.

    WBU what maps do you think are really good?

    I like the idea - but I don't think your descriptions adds much relevant knowledge of the map, besides the distance / time.

    Here's my take on a couple combined with what the maptesting team used (might add more later on):

    Steam Workshop :: kz_reach_v2
    Difficulty: Easy (close medium)
    Length: 1-5 minutes
    Textures: Grassy
    Emphasis: ladders, bhops, combos
    Overall Enjoyment: 8
    Additional comments:
    Easy jumps that are comboable with a little strafing. Bhop sections with decently placed blocks easily done with a little strafing. Quite a few ladders which aren't too hard and doesn't ruin the flow of the map. Slightly rng heavy for grinding record.


    Steam Workshop :: kz_colors_v2
    Difficulty: Medium (close hard)
    Length: 15 - 60 minutes
    Textures: Flat textures
    Emphasis: Combo, strafe
    Overall Enjoyment: 8
    Additional comments:
    Medium jumps for the most part, with room to optimize a lot. A few cubby jumps in the beginning and a couple headbangers during the map. Slowly increasing in difficulty. Barely rng heavy for grinding record.

    Nice adds, altough I have a personal hatred for colors & ye I didn't really know what to write as a description I just like the maps lul.

    Steam Workshop :: kz_dzy_reach
    Difficulty: Medium
    Length: 5-15+ minutes
    Textures: Metal
    Emphasis: Combo, Ladders.
    Overall Enjoyment: 7
    Additional comments: This is a map with quite a bit of ladders on it, it pretty much uses everything even has one or maybe two surfs in it. I like to practise on it for that reason. But if u hate ladders avoid it. Mostly pretty easy jumps, no insane gaps & nice flow looks really nice too. I'm not a record kind of person so can't really comment on that.

    kz_fikablock
    Difficulty
    : Easy for new players, tough as fuck for fast times
    Length: 2-5 minutes
    Textures: Ugly stone stuff
    Emphasis: MICROOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO
    Overall Enjoyment: 10
    Additional comments: Ugliest map known to man, most fun map known to man. Fika is stupid easy if you just want to complete it, most jumps being easier than taking your grandma out on a walk. As you learn the micro technique on the map it becomes harder and harder to get a consistent fast time, but becomes the most rewarding map when you have the combos down. I could grind this map all day.

    kz_ominous
    Difficulty: easy
    Length: 1-3 minutes
    Textures: Ugly black shit
    Emphasis: Combo
    Overall Enjoyment: 9.5
    Additional comments: Great map, superb flow. Combo from start to finish feels natural.

    kz_vci_apprentice
    Difficulty: Easy
    Length: 3-5 minutes
    Textures: literal ballsack
    Emphasis: Combo
    Overall Enjoyment: 9
    Additional comments: Very comboable map with lots of fun yet simple tech. Some of the bhop sections are stupid due to annoying skips, but the map fluidity makes up for the few hiccups. Also vci is hot as fuck, so that helps.
