👿 OLD DEMONS CHALLENGE

@JordanYuki and I were daydreaming about old forgotten challenge missions and went down the YouTube rabbit hole of No Man's Land history.

There are quite a few old challenges that were shelved due to "bugs" and to many freeman etc (The Suburbs, Teeming Graveyard, The Freeman etc) but there are also a bunch of single missions that were removed for various reasons, most often because they were too difficult. 

So we came up with six that we thought would make a good compilation (esp since none are being used in other challenge sets). Some of these were very hard when they were removed , but I think with current meta and tools and support etc etc I think the community would fare a lot better against these formerly difficult missions . 

I give you, The Old Demons Challenge:

#1 The River Cabin

#2 Hilltop

#3 Inside and Out

#4 The Terminal Gate

https://youtu.be/z54muSe-ZLE


#5 Shut Them Out

https://youtu.be/MNBWUwGvi7c


#6 Behind Corners

https://youtu.be/_VwLuiEzzvI


Honorable mention:

#7 The Iron Railing
( this one was originally part of the fouled prison and was later replaced by handrails and Freeman pricks. I personally would love to see this put back and handrails removed into that challenge set.)

    I was actually just thinking this same thing: revive several old, retired maps now that we have new strats, heroes, weapon abilities, etc.. Inside and Out and Shut Them Out were even two of the specific maps I had in mind, along with the older version(s) of Roadrunner. I didnt have 3 others in mind, but these are pretty solid selections.

    River Cabin i really liked the water effect at the exit. 

    I remember thinking these when it first came out and then it was gone forever.

    Wow that's a blast from the past!
    Most of these vids are from 2015/2016 pre-heroes era, feels like a lifetime ago.

    I want Behind Corners back just for the sake of seeing everyone cry about how they hate it, that's a one ptsd inducing map 😆

    Lol. It was mean. The only mission I can ever recall that endlessly spawned Tanks. 

    Here's a little better look at it...

    In current meta it's going to be way easier with Zeke MS or SMY, even with several spawned Tanks.

    Just in case, a free box of tissue comes with every bundle in the shop, overnighted to your home.

    I think I shattered my phone over Inside and Out. Would definitely be much easier now, would be cool to bring them back.

    The Prisoner's Journey... 

    This is a long mission, like guild wars mission almost. Love the Prison environment. 

    Would be sweet to play this today right?

    Yep, I'd love to see some of these maps back in circulation. I'm not sure whether I'd like a challenge set purely made up of them but perhaps throw a few of them in here and there into some of the sets which have repeated maps from other sets. Like kill room, through the wire etc!

    With all the new LTs, tools and supports these maps wouldn't be as broken as they were back then!

    I'd love to see some maps from the good ol' days before I started playing a few years back. Provided they come with a forum badge featuring @ATLAS-Z telling us to git offa his lawn!

    There are lots of maps you don’t see now what happened to the whispers maps as well I think they should revamp them and use them

    They ran them only once I think, interactions with Whisperers uncovering were very buggy

    Hmmm would love to see a challenge with the old ones. I still yearn for the map sets from the initial challenges.

    Does anyone have original design pics ?
    I'd like to see this townscape it was to choose modes again. It's been a long time but it used to look like a street if I remember well. Does anybody see what I mean ?
