"Red Security is down for 1 minutes": This is possibly the only flaw I can come up with after spending a few sessions testing this map. I'm going to forgive ULIBOH here (he's Japanese), as he has created a corker of a map!

Hellion has been designed to encourage traditional CTF style setups (4 offence and 4 defence) and after testing the map several times (4v4), it seems to be one of the most well balanced maps I've played since monkey_l. In fact, I find it very similar (not design-wise) to the learning curve of monkey_l: there's fun to be had for novices through to vets. After only a handful of times playing offence on it I have already discovered a multitude of cool concs which involve all the major mechanics for any offensive style map (rampslides, skimming edges, hh's which can result in mass distance coverage). I recommend 3 medics and a scout or else 4 medics on offence. Take a look at a couple of the concs here and here.

That being said, it is by no means an offence dominated map. There is some great fun to be had on d and I've basically tried every defensive class there is, all providing effective in some way or another at given positions. Some recommended setups:

Soldier – switch
Soldier – ramp/left front door
HW – flagroom
Engineer – flagroom

Soldier – switch
Demoman – switch/flag
Soldier/Hw – ramp/left front door
Engineer – flagroom

I recommend all teams give this a good prac or two before ozfl 8, I can see it becoming a regular map and it would pay to learn it well.

Love the map, but I don't like the entrances of the flagroom, when it's guarded by a HWG it's just to fucking frustrating to get trough as scout.
