|Object Warp (In / Out)|
Warps, commonly known as portals, refer to two shaman items that teleport mice or single unattached items from one portal to the other, maintaining their momentum. Altough they come in two variations, blue and orange (called Warp (in), and Warp (out)), both portal can be used either as an input or an output. Warps are only available in certain maps.
While most often times warps are two-way, it's actually possible to create a warp that's one-way through the creative use of terrain. Burying one warp into a solid piece of the level will force mice out the nearest side. There are a number of occasions where this might be used productively in some levels, but like everything, it has its own uses as a trolling tactic as well.
Portals can now be used in a map, but only if portals are turned on in map editor, like the soul mate function.
- Originally introduced on July 4th, 2010, Warps were available in almost all maps. It's unknown if the constant outcry from "pro gamers" that "portals ruined the game" was the cause of its July 5th retraction or they were simply an undocumented 4th of July-only item.
- July 11th marked the return of Warps. However, they are now limited to certain maps where they can best be used, rather than most maps.
- The concept of the warps, along with their colors, are originated from the video game Portal by Valve.
