Forge Lesson 46: Active Engagement

Today’s lesson is inspired by many BTB maps and Invasion maps out there. I’m sure you have played someone’s Invasion map where you spend a good majority of your time walking rather than fighting. Or those BTB Montana/Alaska bridge maps where you travel from one side to the other for a full minute and then die to restart that long trek. Today’s lesson talks about keeping your players actively engaged and involved so you don’t lose them to shear boredom. Enjoy peepz![

* When players are not actively engaged they get bored and lose interest in your map
* Various techniques can be used to engage your players, but making sure you don’t over do it is important
* Walking around your map and putting yourself in your player’s shoes can help you find spots to improve player engagement
