HAARP is an Attack and Defend CTF map for the contest. H.A.A.R.P. (the High Frequency Active Auroral Red Project) is stationed inside a huge Red base built in the side of a cliff. In the snowy Alaskan wilderness, they've built antenna arrays and a gigantic satellite dish. But what you don't know is it's really a DOOMSDAY DEVICE that could potentially END THE WORLD AS WE KNOW IT. Blue must infiltrate the base and deliver the shutdown override codes before DEATH AND DESTRUCTION RAINS DOWN ON THE WORLD (or something).

"Wait, what the hell does HAARP mean?"
Haarp is two things:
1: [ame]http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Haarp[/ame]
2: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/HAARP_%28album%29

So what are the rules?
-Blu delivers intelligence to capture points. Red defends.
-The map is divided into 3 sections, like dustbowl.
-The intel spawns outside of Blu's respawn. Once Blu captures the first CP in a section, the next intel will still spawn outside of Blu's respawn.
-Red can block captures by standing on the CP.

Look familiar?

Additional Credits:
-Nineaxis: custom posters.

Thanks, special:
-Icarus
-Radaka
-A Boojum Snark
-Nineaxis
-Youme
-Everyone testing and leaving feedback

Oh my, Muse! Amazing band, favorite band. <3.

I saw HAARP and I got extremely excited and nearly told someone about this map...And then realized I'm the only one who would be excited about this =P

Are you actually making the HAARP facility, or is the map just called HAARP?

High Altitude Atmospheric Research Project, or something like that, right?

I just realized that there's a download of the map. I'll have to test it out tomorrow or something.

Yeah, I meant the High Frequency Active Auroral Research Program facility. I have no idea what it looks like, but apparently you're able to tour the entire facility.

I'll check out the map tomorrow and give actual feedback instead of just nerding out over Muse.

I'm also using a muse related names for my contest entries
I bought some muse tickets saturday (they were sold out in 10 minutes, as expected)
/me can't wait for The Resistance.

Anyway you map looks like a nice layout (or do the props/lightning distract me) ^^

Heh, I've seen Muse live twice, at Wembly Arena and Stadium.

My maps are named after Beatles songs

Let me guess the theme: Stupid amounts of spytech (e.g. oversized satellite dishes, mysterious spacecraft, ballerinas dangling under balloons etc.).

Lucky. I've never seen Muse live, it's hard to do living in America.

I can confirm there are no spinning balloon ballerinas in the map.

I'm going to try and get section 2 ready for a gameday this weekend.

For now, I'll post this logo, the product of me being very bored:
