yeah I know....'like COD'...'just stat padding'...etc etc.
However, after jumping into a few metro servers after a while out, its actually turned out to be an excellent map purely for infantry vs infantry gameplay. For the most part, I prefer playing on servers that ban SMAW/RPGs, M320s, USAS's and I reckon thats got to be an excellent map where the battle moves purely by different tactics (eg. on attack, pouring more men through the main entrance out of the station or left flank or right flank, etc).
I've played once where (defense) we had lost all our spawn points in about 2 mins and spent another 10 mins just sniping from spawn whilst a few ventured out. After about 5 mins we captured the first flag and pushed onwards, and almost ended up winning by pushing the attackers back to their spawn point. Purely infantry vs infantry in CQB. Okay, there's a rain of nades but not everywhere.
I know this map gets a lot of negative attention but since the latest patch (plus now the majority of players have actually matured...maybe) I reckon its the best infantry only map out there.
Thats my $0.02
