I was hoping for a bit of forethought when responses are being made, but i suppose that's a little too much to ask. If you play this map, and I am sure you do considering it's on atleast half a dozen times a day, nothing I have posted should be hard to understand.
The bottom line is, this map is too easy and skill is practically non existent in almost every aspect..
@Hilner - Being 1 of the top 5 players, if not the top player in MG, I would expect you to understand best how having little to no challenge is boring. I can't even be considered mediocre at best and i find it dull when everybody and their mother can beat this. Unless that is, you really don't give a shit and enjoy that kind crap, then it's makes sense. There are plenty of those people out there so I suppose it wouldn't actually surprise me, but for arguments sake, let's pretend you do care.
Fighting is fine and so is killing other players, but there is a difference between sliding, avoiding obstacles, and chasing players down vs shooting a group of CTs or Ts in the back while they are basically standing still. Atleast the original had the ramps so players could spread out, but with this version, everyone is in two locations clustered and then continuously end up in that same position time and time again for half the map.
It's perfectly reasonable to be annoyed when you are killed by someone who simply shifts from one side of the map to the other in the first five seconds, or being forced to die simply because of that flaw or those like it.
When I suggest a complete overhaul, I am talking about a complete expansion, not hacking at and tweaking the same crap over and over again to get something worse than the last so called "version". Open the playing field, allow players to spread out, engage the enemy on their terms in a manner that's fitting of a fight, and not shooting fish in a barrel.
I am not having a debate on whether or not this map is good, merely suggesting that while they have this map removed, make updates with actual updates, not completely insignificant and unused and useless addons. Of course, whether or not anyone actually agrees or disagrees with me if fine, but pretending that I actually care about how you try to point out how illogical my logical statements are isn't the point and never was.
If you have an issue with that, so be it, but it still contributes nothing to this conversation and I just wanted you to know that.
This is mainly what I was referring to when I mentioned that too much emphasis was being placed on the slide, far more so than the actually battle portion. Even those ontop still spend most of the time trying to..idk, race the entire time and others bitch and moan because they keep getting shot, believing they actually have the unlikely and very slim chance in hell of glimpsing their name on the record board.
Is that really fighting or BATTLE, when most are just trying to get to the end while guys keep picking them off from behind? Maybe I have a different definition, who knows.
