Firstly, for map additions I'd say Gravelpit definitely like to see. Other maps I don't care. Gravel could bring in a lot of interesting matches as it splits the coordination of a team and it's pretty damn hard to lose course of the objective.
Secondly, baaaaakaaaaaa yarou. Don't know what you're seeing Atkins
Thunder's probably the best map in the rotation. You can use any class to a reasonable degree unlike most of the other maps. Even though it's a payload it's well planned out. Upward is kinda there, but not quite overall.
And in any case some people don't understand the above, it's because you actually need to be a decent player to get to the right positions, to do whatever you're doing decently and live to tell the tale.
Especially with Demo's and Solly's can jump to wherever, scouts can be more active, spies don't have to dr.
Offense Engy has more freedom to build in multiple good locations instead of only 1 or 2.
Pyro's, Heavies, Sniper, and whatever else do what they would normally do, run around and be super cool
or sit on cart and be super cool
, or afk in spawn and be super cool
Dustbowl, Hoodoo and Barn are probably the most similar in terms of spam n choke point holding. Hate one then hate the others, want to remove one then want to remove the others. Only greater problem with dust is the 3rd stage, 20 minute hold from time to time; which isn't bad at all half the time.
Opinion on whether or not we need to remove maps. Personally I'd say no, for #25 is a good 32p server and even with the large amount of time people spend on it they still play those maps. Meaning they don't hate them (that much).
Some people spend 9 hours straight on the server too, like all those triangle people, square people and circle people. They go through the rotation about 4 times before they leave, so I doubt "too long of a rotation matters greatly". As long as the maps are suitable then there's no biggy.
If people want to complain about the spammed choke points on a map then try telling other people to stop spamming. And it all probably begins with yourself. What happens 95% of the time is something like;
"Oh no, we're being spammed, let's spam them back, it makes the game better and we might win."
You might as well complain about the spies repeatedly sapping your tele at spawn while your team does nothing here too. Why? Cause there's a crucial lack of a certain "thing" that majority of the players are lacking.
P.S. for those who don't know my alias is Transition. If you intend to pick on about the things I do in-game, I suggest you give up before trying.
