You gotta be kidding me. That just stinks. They say it makes it real...yeah right. Real is when you get a team going that can work together. And by the time you finally get in good team play (i never even stay that long until it rotates) it switches. THEN when it switches, you wait about 7 minutes to play the next map.....and it disconnects you. If it doesnt change, I'm going to find another game to play. Plus, clans train up to play, then can't even play together...kind of stupid if you ask me. Hope i get responses to this one...not that they will change anything.
I agree jackalope, this rotating map thing kinda sux. And youre also right about getting the players to start acting like a team, it takes a few rounds but it gets there eventually, now with rotating maps, it takes all that away and IMHO takes the fun out of it. As it is now there are some very good maps and some bad, so I only play on 2 or 3 different ones always Official servers now its gonna be a pain to get in a game then when it switches go find another open spot on a server which right now is very hard to do. Ive waited 30 mins or more to get into a game and this is gonna make ppl spend half their playing time waiting on an open server for a map they wanna play in. So I hope the Devs and all are listening cuz this rotating map thing aint working.
Oh My GOSH! You have got to be kidding me. DEV's, please fix...or you will lose people in droves! Why do we have the ability to select what map we want? Now it is irrelevant, you will be switched after a few minutes anyway to another map. Then, you most likely have to sit out a round until the 2 or 4 players that got on the server first finish (= a wasted round, so now you have 6 to a match). Then there is the afore mentioned in another thread regarding warming up to a map and getting situated with team roles. Screw team roles now, ITS ALL ABOUT YOU! (I know not the intent of this game).
So, in summary, you screwed up with this decision. Dont make a worse mistake by failing to rectify in a timely manner.
No kidding, it sucks badly. I am tired of the rotating maps. There are SEVERAL times that I have been playing(had a lan party over at my house. AWESOME turnout. FINALLY fixed my computer.. Damn bad RAM) and it switched maps and what should happen, either myself or one of my clanmates over at my house would get booted from the server. Now what kind of bull poo(cant swear) is that?!?!?! One of my clan mates is on the verge of quitting AA and I dont blame him. This game WAS BADASS untill this patch. I like the binocs and I LOVE the scoring system. ROE plays a bigger part in honor and rankings, but come-on. ENOUGH with the rotating maps. at least make it 21 rounds. I HATE river basin. It sucks worse than FLS Assault. And thats saying something. I LOVE AA and its an awesome game and i give props to the DEVS on everything they have done, but they need to even out the servers and leave them on one map. Hey, has anyone else seen the boonie hats?? I havent yet.
I totally agree that the rotating maps are a bad idea. It really ****ed the game up! There are 3 maps that i really like to play and i like to play them all day long! I don't wanna get kicked to another level that i don't even like!!! And the rotating takes a lot of your gaming time away, it always takes like 10 minutes before you can start playing again. As when you just started a level you always need some time to addapt to the way it is played, but because of the ROTATING (bleehhhh) they don't give you that time and you go to another bad ass level!! So PLEASE make sure that the rotating shit is taken out of the next version and bring out that version FAST, your losing a lot of gamers here!! (not so smart)
Let us use this forum to spread the word! NO MORE ROTATING MAPS! Sheesh!
I understand the need to have rotating maps when a new one comes out. Everyone is going to be flooding that map... But I think what I would have done is taken some from other maps and just had us suffer. I doubt as many people would be complaining about low official maps than rotating maps. I wouldnt have complained about it at all!
YEEHH the SCI maps RULE!!! no Rotating, thank you, it makes the game much nicer!!
