I love most of the maps for Forgotten Hope. Even maps like Karelia and Berlin Outskirts where the complainers get really loud I find enjoyable. Berlin is the exception to this, though. I don't know who thought adding an IS-2 to an infantry map would be a good idea, or who thought that tanks should spawn so far outside of their connected spawn areas, but this map can be painful to play. I know the Jagdpanzer is supposed to counter the IS-2, but I don't think I've ever seen an instance in which the Russians controlled the IS-2 and the Germans controlled the Jagdpanzer.

The rest of the map is good, though. The STG44 vs. Mosin Nagant issue doesn't bother me at all, and minus the tanks a good time can be had by all. It's when your team has to devote half its numbers and a good ten minutes to getting rid of a single tank that the map quickly starts to hurt.

Anyway, I just got through playing a tough game at Berlin where I and several other Russians spent a good amount of time chasing around a stolen IS-2 so most of this is just venting.

I love berlin. It's the most insane infantry map in the game. The is2 just makes it better.

And its usually stg44s vs ppsh41s

Every original map should get a revamp like Berlin did, the IS2 and the 88mm are a stroke of genious!

Berlin, I think, needs one major change: better shelter at the uncappable Russian spawn. Berlin came up last night on Wolf, and it was nothing more than a massacre. Between the nit who tipped the IS-2 onto its side behind the flag, and the other nit who kept getting in and trying to right it, and the two pieces of German armour sitting 30 yards down the street, it was next to impossible to spawn and figure out just where you were before getting blown to hell by something or another. Of course, it might've just been that round (it's the only round of Berlin I've played in .61), but going off that experience, I really do think that the Russians need a somewhat more covered spawn area, or the German tanks need to spawn just a wee bit farther off. Otherwise it's a great map, even if I do wind up dead every seven seconds.

Strange that there are no sidewalks, asphalt or cobblestone in Berlin... just dirtroads like some backwater town
