History

The basic idea for the mod came from another mod for Jedi Academy, called "Movie Battles II". In 2006 some of its developers and community mappers decided to take a leap to the new, superb engine and to port the extremely unique Team Assault gameplay to Source.

It's first release target first as an open beta was planned to be the summer of 2008, but this date wasn't met due to large technical difficulties.

In August 2010 the project was rebooted, and had several new additions to its team.
