no kidding. That map sucked beyond belief (no offense to the creator, not your fault considering its only the second hydroball map made). Is that room that you spawn in even big enough to hold more than 10 people? Also, note to any other people making hydroball maps DO NOT, REPEAT DO NOT allow a player to fall out of the water sphere or let the ball fall out. In that map it would float out of the water and youd have to dive out to get it, and you could hold the ball under the water sphere and just run behind the goal and chuck it. Also the ability to leave the sphere caused problems with health, it let you be killed while playing and then the player cant get back in the game. The goal looked good but its too small and way to easy to cover. The goal from blitzball should be put in because it had space all around the person gaurding the goal and enough space to keep it a not too easy to get in.

Thanks for listing all the problems Galactic :D I was too tired last night to list them, oh and I must press that we're not trying to offended the guy who made it we're just pointing out the flaws.
