Discussion in CS:S Custom Maps started by jookbob, Sep 16, 2012
You could have worked a bit harder on the thread...
But it is a good question. I dislike non-mg maps in MG, sure they add variety but with inbetween this and smee tower this is become less and less mg.
Not complaining ofc, just my observation.
You cannot deny it is a popular map though.
Xmas_Nipperhouse was originally designed as a fun-map along the lines with MG. It is a popular map liked by many and disliked by few. It's the same way with smee_tower, they add not only a variety to the play-list but also bring in a good chunk of people.
Ok is it me or are the maps that are deemed as "not really MG maps" often the most popular maps? Ski Mountain, Ski Mount Resort, Nipperhouse, Goldeneye, Kirby's brawl, Matrix, Smeetower, etc. They are almost always on Cooldown because so many people want to play them. These are the types of maps that bring volume into the server.
It is because people likes "shooting" maps yes, since they are very bad at maps where jumping and strafing skills is required, like courses, lego_multigames etc.
I quit playing MG because of this.. I don't like shooting maps. But of course, it's what the people likes.
Mg gets pretty boring when we have people like you a2, zevi, kanka, (no offense just giving a different perspective) picking bhop every single map, and no one wants to sit and watch you guys win. Gun maps offer a different change
Note: Goldeneye and Kirby's brawl are mg maps, just they don't have bhop and courses and climb.. etc..
I think people like those maps yuppi, its just that one or two players dominate the entire time and everyone else just basically waits to be killed. For instance, if Zevi or A2 are on and its a strictly minigame map, I simply leave and wait for a shooting map to popup. I know they'll win every round, and I know I'll end up leaving or moving to spectate because I dont feel like being an easy point for them.
I can not play alot of surfing, bhopping, obstical like maps because I not that great at them so I usually die earlier than most people and it does get boring watching someone do the obstical course if it. So I like having shooting type maps, ex: nipperhouse, because I am little better at killing people than bhopping and obsticals. Gives me an advantage.
I can't do surf/bhop/obstacle maps for shit, and I'm usually hunter fodder for Ski Mountain, Nipplehouse, Goldeneye, Smeetower, etc.
Thank god for maps like Wasterland. . .
These are all specifically designed mg maps. xmas_nipperhouse is just a super T sided bomb map. Smee is also kinda on the edge of being a mg also but it seems more mg'ish than xmas. I'm not going to name names (p@p@_roaster), but it seems like its just a map to farm kills.
Nice sarcasm there bud. I don't use the map to farm kills, I use the map to enjoy myself and have fun. On a second note, if the map didn't have noblock enabled, the teams would be even. Maybe it could be added in the future?
Ive also noticed that since the ranking system, nobody wants to play course maps anymore.
The ranking system has no effect on people wanting to play course maps, the majority of people just rather not play them.
I disagree because almost always its the people who care about rank nominating the maps.
Course maps have no effect on ranks. Some ppl might say course maps were never played even before we had rank haha, but they seem fine to me. I've also seen the servers do fine when they're on too
Does the stats count suicides?
No. Only player kills.
Just because I care about rank doesn't mean I nominate certain maps to boost my rank. I nominate maps I know the server would enjoy playing, and if they don't they always RTV it.
Course maps draw in a good chunk of people if played at the right time; however they can also decay the population.
