    NOTD w/ 8 Players
    ~5MB Map
    ~1-3 minute Load Screen

    Banana Cheaters w/ 12 Players
    ~35MB Map
    ~0.5 - 1.5 minute Load Screen

    Why? Is it the fact I'm only ever in private banana games and the connections are generally better? I've seen Banana games load slower than NOTD and vise versa, but generally Banana, being 7 times the size of NOTD, loads faster.

    It's not file size. It's script content that has the largest impact.

    Ah, I see. I assumed it was elements within the map, hence my curiosity at the difference in filesize.

    35mb? That things gotta be running Mod Dependencies. Those are generally one time downloads, until they get changed by the uploader. And many of those are quick to load, ie, music, models, ect.

    I find NOTD load time depends a lot on individual players and whether it is the first NOTD game you play since firing up SC2.
    Fastest 8 player load was like 30 seconds (10ish for single player).
    Slowest without a drop was close to 5 mins.
