Nono I wrote more than 5 minutes :). But im not sure how long it lasts exactly because its sooooo long back. But you see this example show why DDrag maps are the worst thing for newbies. There are even people who think that maps like introduction are easier then multimap for beginners.

There is pale for example (same points amount as multimap). I remember the time when I was able to finish multimap first try within 30 minutes blindfolded standing on 1 foot playing with 3 fingers only (without rescue) when I could not finish just ONE part of pale even in my dreams.

At the moment i know 3 maps which are good for beginners:
  • Just2Easy
  • Seasons1
  • Multimap
I have to admit the last one is the worst example, but somehow it was and still is the first ddrace map for a big audience. Its not easy itself but its a good map to help nubs as a pro.
