Someone should write something about this map, it's a pretty good one. - KT--Knighttemplar 13:21, 26 June 2007 (EDT)

I would, but I haven't played it enough to grasp the details and tactics and whatnot. The last two times I played it people just wanted to race (I gladly obliged). After I play it more, I'll come up with as much as possible.--The Buttery Lobster 14:10, 26 June 2007 (EDT)

The minimap shown in the article image is outdated. Current cylcopean versions have the refs in the NW on weird platforms, and i think the city is different. Also, why is the map listed under community? Checking the forum thread, Halbradour, the creator, is listed as a Developer. Also, the screenshots are out-dated. Should someone put some sort of disclaimer under them? I don't think it's needed, but I don't know wiki/internet protocols--The Buttery Lobster 14:29, 26 June 2007 (EDT)

R_yell, Solokiller, and Hellion are also listed as developers now, but the maps started out as community made custom maps, that's why that section is there. --Arklansman 16:30, 26 June 2007 (EDT)

i would like to mention how effective grenadiers are in the city under the "sniper paradise" infantry tactic. If they mine the ladder to the skyscraper they climb up, they can be tough as hell to dislodge. please detail why you feel this isn't worth including, pm me if you want (empires forum, duh) but at the very least I think there should be a brief mention of it.--The Buttery Lobster 16:56, 16 September 2007 (EDT)

I renamed the section to "Urban Combat" tactic and made the reference broader to just the scout. Any class can take advantage of the rooftops and overpasses. Grenadiers can take out armor pretty easy, riflemen can wreak havoc with their rifles and grenades and engineers can keep base expansions at bay pretty easily with seismic grenades and turrets. The city fighting on Cyclopean is fun for all classes. --L3TUC3 23:53, 16 September 2007 (EDT)
