Kicking off 2020 with a couple of Holdout maps.

Its been a while since we had a new holdout style map (and i mean the descend, nightmare and power core style of holdout.... maybe also krampus lair)
I began liking them more and more because of how it forces random players to work as a team to survive, or perish quickly because they went fudge all like on a normal wide open survival map.

Edit: icing on a cake if a map would have 20 room to randomly choose from, to make rng less predictable and increase maps replayability.

I hate Holdout maps with burning passion. I hate them just because they are always too cramped. I hate narrow places, irl and in video games...

Claustrophobia much?
If you hate it, you have an option to avoid it... While some would like to see new maps in holdout style.
Since normal survival maps tend to get boring simply because of always sticking to one spot yo survive the whole match, while holdout keeps you moving between areas.

The only place i will agree with your burning hatred for cramped space is the sanitarium map.
It has more choke points than tf2's dustbowl xD

I like this idea, Nightmare and Powercore in HoE are a good challenge, I would like to see more maps like this two.

I'm a sucker for holdout maps myself! But it is true that they tend to be very cramped... More open versions would be great (if taking more ressources I presume).

That may also be me, but I would love another map like DieSector... Something truly tailored to Endless. Obviously, we don't need twenty maps like that. But one or two more would be cool !

Just hopefully not diesector 2.0 where you now have a 3rd floor of same really tight space that you can barely have any room to move around to avoid zeds xD

Hopefully not, but I have to admit I have something for creepy test labs he he he...

Other than that, it's mostly for the constantly evolving arena that I'd like one or more maps in that style.
