I don't agree; the actual gameplay won't change with the exception of people actually taking the time to recon a flag point. You'll see planes fly over for a first pass to ensure that the point is theirs, rather than the direct dive-in-attack that we get at the moment. You'd see tanks close together, travelling with infantry and holding fire until they can ID their targets. Urban Combat will lose its Q3-ness (How do you REALLY know that the guy coming around the corner is on your team? You don't even know he's there until he comes around!)
There are plenty of realism benefits to the removal of the minimap, and only a few score-affecting issues with why it SHOULD be there. It DOESN'T affect gameplay, it tweaks it.
Still not convinced, but keep trying!

Maybe I should give up now while I'm nowhere near ahead... :D
