    Hi @bemused I have put a lot of thought into this, so I hope you seriously consider what I have to say. I have replayed map 03 a few times, and I have a few suggestions for balance because as it stands, there are fights where either u can save ammo/health for the next encounter, or you die. Another issue is the lack of mega armor throughout the map. I have to find some way to carry megaspheres from previous fights if I want any chance at surviving. Here are a few ideas I had. For the fight next to the red skull key, I think it needs 30 to 40 rockets because going for the early bfg will be a struggle as you have to spend all your cells on the rs fight itself. The other option is to ssg to clean up, but that is gonna make things grindy. I also run out of shells if I do that and have to spend some cells anyway. If I beat that fight and bring the amount of cells from there to the bfg secret, Im simply dead unless you make some changes to the secret bfg fight. Im also not sure why you give so many rockets for the nonsecret bfg fight but not for the rs bc with the current balance, I would just take those rockets to the rs fight. I am sure you remember I was unhappy with the bfg secret. You have to yolo that cyber, or you are dead. You also have mancs spawning in constantly with sniper revs, which would be ok if there was enough ammo to spam the mancs and prevent the room from getting flooded with fireballs. 300 more cells would be great for this encounter because then I could just hug the wall underneath the revs, and the fight would be about keeping the mancs at bay to prevent a lot of fireballs while watching the cyber and choosing when to step forward for better tracers minding the rev balls behind you. More cells would allow the player to take down everything in that first part before the walls open up and still have some ammo to push for the archvile. The second phase of that bfg fight has a lot of projectiles flying around, and all we get is 2 soul spheres and some medikits. I think it needs at least 1 mega armor especially because that spider mastermind can do whatever she wants. If I need the cells next to her, and she is not infighting, Im dead. Overall, you give one berserk and one green armor before entering the bfg secret, and I do not think a megasphere is even overkill for that. I know you said we can bring a mega there, but if you want the player to bring that health to the fight, why not just give it at the fight? The finale is bs. The cybers just do whatever they want, and there is no space to go. If there were not imps and pigs spawning in at the far ends, then maybe the fight would be ok after yoloing one cyber but still awful. The one megasphere we get there can either carry throughout the whole fight or get completely obliterated in the first 5 seconds. If they all shoot you when the fight starts, youre dead. I honestly dont know what you want us to do in that fight. If I yolo a cyber, anything can happen. If I run around and start up the infighting before shooting, the cybers can just choose to block my strafe at any time. and the rev missiles pile up while everything is blocking my movement. Basically, to win that fight, the cybers need to all group up in some spot where they are perfectly distracting all the revs and hks while you kill imps and pigs to keep space. That or you somehow kill at least 2/3 of the cybers early on and somehow have enough cells to clean up. That is another issue I will discuss when I address the last secret. Also, the fight usually ends with a minute or 2 of just rocketing goats (possibly revs too if there are any left). Suggestions: If you took out the cybers and reduced the number of revs/hks the fight could be a great encounter that centers around controlling the revs while the imps and pigs swarm you with the hks supporting them. Cant stay in front of the revs the whole time or else you will get stuck, and it forces the player to push to the opposite side, create a space, and dodge the rev balls from a distance. Hks will still be closing in on you, and overall, lots of options open up with that idea. The secret fight that requires the 6 keys is a fine encounter, but it has one fatal flaw: it ends with cleaning up like 50 revs. Which would not be so bad if I did not need to save a lot of cells for the finale, so I think if you just stocked up our cells before that finale (maybe put a full stack on the ledge before we drop down), it would help both encounters.

    Map 10 UV-max in 0:35 I used to lead with rockets here, and I thought the bfg was a distraction because of all the weapon switching. Using rockets, I was prioritizing killing 3-4 revs asap, so I decided to just do that with bfg and try to get the ball to kill an archvile. Hard fight, but good D5DA10M035.zip
