Hello XJ community,
Welcome to another map release, with our first batch of Apprentice Maps coming in hot off the presses for you guys to jump through and enjoy. As it is with the theme behind these maps, most long-time players will find little resistance while progressing through each of the levels. It was our vision to have these maps act as XJ's own resident front-men in welcoming all new, as well as lower-skilled level players. We hope you'll agree these first three maps did an excellent job of achieving this goal; so without further delay, here are our inaugural Apprentice Maps:
UPDATE: After thoroughly going through your thoughts, the community, we realised that somewhere along the road we made a mistake. This event, Year of the Apprentice, was initiated with the intent to help newcomers feel more welcome into this community. It was also made to give mappers a chance to represent the XJ community by having their maps carry our community tag, xj_. We feel like this is a very powerful tag, distinct to kz_ in a way that it directly represents the XJ community. Consequently, all the maps that will feature the Apprentice theme will be named xj_ap_mapname. All of them are great maps in their own way and we can't wait for you to enjoy them. We also apologize for any incovenience this might cause to the record holders which already recorded. Don't give up!
KarLi: I would like to apologize for the confusion of this map release. We gave KZ tags for 2 maps but at the same time all of these 3 maps should have been released only with xj_ap tag according to the Apprentice Maps theme. We have removed the KZ tag from Hollywood and Matsuo to be fair with the rest of the maps and upcoming releases. I apologize for the inconvenience.
xj_ap_hollywood by SadPuppy
Description: Can you say originality? This is the type of map that other mappers will take one look at and say "why didn't I think of that?!" That's right, one of the western hemisphere's most iconic symbols of pop culture is now climbable- all thanks to SadPuppy. This map may be short but it is no typical speed map. Expect to see some classic Kreedz featured in each of the giant letters on this segmented cliff-style climb map.
xj_ap_matsuo by jaquarBR
Description: To anyone who has played jaguar's map kz_kz-endo_yamatai, playing through this newest map of his might evoke a sense of Déjà vu. That is because the theme- and most of the map's components were copied over from the former to the latter. Not only did the environment come out of retirement, but so did the mapper himself to create this speed-map masterpiece. Quick and easy, but a whole lot of fun, and you'll find the visuals to be crisp and colorful.

xj_ap_abyss by Leffe_L
Description: Leffe's apprentice map may not have the most visually-dazzling environment; with its clean yet simple industrial theme. But it does hit the nail on the head for what we were looking for in an Apprentice map. A perfect speed map for veteran players, and a fantastic representation of what Kreedz has to offer for any new player.

This edition should have originally been out on Wednesday, but didn't happen due to copyright issues. Nonetheless here it is, featuring one of the best dudes on the block, ex-top #1 - kayne. And would it be fair not to notice this being his third WR after a three-year hiatus? Beating this oldschool map with quite some history with no hesitation at all, first held in 2006 by faker, then ndR, tarGet, zhady, brian...and more iconic names. And this already dangerous mix spiced up with some good editing from malaysia - not too flashy, not too simple, just perfect. Great job! Hope to see more from both of you here.
Also, reminding that if you'd like to contribute to our ROTW (including ROTW Classics) series - PM me.
