Well, I´m not sure what your experiances are with this map, but as far as I know its very unpopular. 9 out of 10 players find it awfully booring, and I think most people can agree. I just think the map is plane old to big. Because the Axis are forced to attack from sea, you seldomly get a coordinate attack going. Most of the time the Japs will just drip in 1 by 1 and be wasted by the Allies lying around and beeing boored, because they have nthing to do. Most Axis spawn of the carrier, which is then raped by the American destroyer for the rest of the match. I think this map either needs a major rework, or it should be dropped from the FH mod. It might sound a bit hard, since I´m sure there was alot of work invested into it, but this map is simply booring...

Definetely agree, incredibly boring. And if Axis ever does get a foothold, it becomes on a race to get the checkpoints. It takes like 3 or 4 minutes to get to the points on those twisty roads by jeep, and about 4 millenia by tank. Definetely either needs serious reworking (the entire layout, not just moving spawnpoint around) or it needs to be dropped.

To me, Adak is just a cat and mouse game. There is no flags taken, but the allies are camped to hell by Zeros and what not on the AF. In the event the Japs take a flag, its a race. You get to the flag and start to retake it at strategically the same time they make another one neutral. That map is about gaining points through flag taking and not about eliminating the enemy. On a side note, a lot of Custom FH maps are just maps where you chase back and forth. 2 off the top of my head are Foy and Crete. Crete not so bad anymore but Foy is constantly like that. Not saying it's not fun as hell though!

I think that Adak Island actually gave me ball cancer!

I find that 90% of the game is either spent driving/walking from one point to the next and never seeing an enemy. The other 10% is camping on the shore and shooting people coming out of landing craft.

Yeah I raised this issue in .5, but no one cared. Oh well. I still think it's boring. It looks nice, but getting from one point to another is a pain in the ass and the gameplay for the map is really stagnated by the slowness of the battle. Japs should have a land flag and there should be a lot more paths.

I reckon all the moaners should go play quakeIII, where they can have constant bunnyhopping action. I love this Map! good viewing distance for sniping, excellent for setting up ambushes for the Japs or the Americans who rush headlong without a thought to try and get a flag back. This map provides VARIETY. Personally I hate all those infantry only maps, like Foy or the Russian ones, no tactics used on these for sure. Its nice that you lot get bored driving across the island (attention span of what?) because then you are not taking notice of whats around you...s******. No one has Korsun on now..sigh. my favourite Edit:- complete off topic Heh you can't say snig.......ger on here. The PC auto sensor blanks it out. It thinks I'm try too say N i g g er . Which in the English language meant a person from the African state of Niger. Sigh what have you Americans done to our language? now it means an insult. guess you ruined the word gay too, which used to means happy and joyous....sigh

I agree.....off with the complaning bunnyhopping fraggers to Quake III and UT2k4.....

Those small infantry only maps where no player lives more then 20 seconds unless he is camping is not my favorite either, they are like Quake III levels instead of a serious WWII game....

I'm pretty sure these bunnyhopping kids hate the fact they can't continuously frag something......because otherwise they actually have to think what to do, and something very awefull : use a vehicle to get somewhere....the horror !!!

I'm not saying all maps should be big, but the fact Adak Island and Atlantic get banned on almost all servers is rediculous. I don't like servers that leave out maps at all, FH is about all maps.

Personally i like the big ones more.....vehicles need room to move and deploy tactics.
