    Kreedz, or better known as KZ, is a game mode that encompasses all aspects of CS movement, including but not necessarily limited to: air-strafing, bhop, ladders, and surf. There are different maps that focus on different aspects of source engine movement mechanics such as climb, bhop, slide/surf or technical KZ aspects. This map just so happens to have an emphasis on bhop as well as including other mechanics such as ladders and surf.

    Ctrl + F "Climb" 0 results.

    Yep somewhat sums it up.

    Wonder when people are gonna submit surf maps with a few ladders and bhop blocks in them. O wait

    Yes.

    Nonetheless, the point I was trying to make was that by nature Kreedz is climbing. Nothing more, nothing less. You utilize the different movement mechanics to climb towards the end timer as fast as you can.

    Maybe I'm missing something. But I don't know at what point in time kz somehow turned into a collective of any movement aspect of cs, instead of it's original purpose of climbing/elevating to the top of an environment.

    The feel of climbing is just completely dead in a map like this. And its not just this, so far nearly all of the content on kz-climb has been this type of "kz" - practical autobhop maps. 'who hits the longest bhop chains with highest velocity possible in a straight forward line' type of content.

    Honestly i kind of agree, i think any map with any bhop blocks, ladders, or surfs needs to be unglobalized immediately, it doesn't stay true to what kz actually is and that is climbing, simple combos and crouch jumps.

    Decent video, great run. Honestly not a fan of hiding the viewmodel, but I guess that's just my own personal preference when watching runs.

    If the player plays without it then there's no way to see it in the demo unfortunately, so that's probably why.

    Fair enough. Thought it might have been a decision by the editor.
