Its going to sound crazy but iam indeed finding the new maps very boring. Blacknight is very very boring. Even though i did have a very fun castle battle. The highlight of that map is the beautifully made castle. Great fun defending and attacking it:) But apart from that i find the new maps to be very, very boring. Goodwood i thought. Brilliant this is going to be awsome! Played it 3-4 times and end up getting bored to death. Sector 318 is even worse. Back and forth i go to flags.:uhoh: Tainawana or what ever is the worst desingned map i have ever played! Nordwind is a great map and very fun to play. The best of the bunch if you ask me :D Supercharge is just...:( Desert rose is hardly ever on any servers Bombing the reich is fun...but slightly problematic in places... My favorites still are arhnem, zeiona gora, berlin, market garden, gold beach and Nordwind :) Any one else finding the new maps rather boring? p.s The maps look very good and are visualy stunning but the playabilty of them leaves a lot to be desired. Hopefully 6.6 will fix map problems such as too many flags and the current problem of tanks and AT
I love the new maps with exeption of the desert maps, had some very good games today : )
My favorites so far have been Black Knight and Goodwood. Tarawa I dont know what to tell you, its probably the most realistic map that FH has released.
No i am not bored......i think the maps improved lightyears when you think back to some FH 0.5 ones :)
Nordwinds ok except I find it very frustating, simply because I like maning arty and the shells seem to hit trees whenever I get a decent spot. I also cant hit behind hills becasure the arc is so shallow.. very frustrating becasue the arty so sweet on that map. The rest are very good looking andcompare decently in terms of gameplay to .62s maps. Certainly much better then the dark days of fan maps in .5 (not that they were all bad)
The new maps boring, are you nuts finally some maps where you can have a decent viewdistance so it's fun for tankcombat. Besides that they look great too.
Thank god they aren't all like bunnyhopper, spawn-kill-die-spawn Foy. I hate those maps if I want to play thoses I'll play ut2k4.
Blacknight is crappy imo - A very linear map which would seem like complete dross in the daytime.
Falaise Pocket is not my cup of tea either - Too many flags, too many SMGs, too much spawn camping. Unimaginative.
The other new maps are great. I'm especially fond of Goodwood and Norwind.
I love most of the new maps! Some I could live without, but are fun nonetheless. Nordwind is my favorite, it's just got its own special atmosphere that makes it great.
Yea nordwind is a really good map probaby one of the best fh maps there is. I find most of the desert maps, well kind of boring.
have to agree on Nordwind, its superb. there seems to be a number of set piece battles on this map that you can choose from because you KNOW they are happening at a certain place. ie there are always very good infantry battles on the western most flag at the sawmill as the allies try to get to the (usually) axis flag SW and the axis try to take the sawmill. also good fights to see who gets control of the howitzer between those 2 flags controlling the open plain both teams have to get across. great map!
i think this map is so good as it doesn't have any airpower, i spend all day getting across a desert map just to get repeatedly owned by the hurricanes! having read all the posts thus far i think everything will "settle" down after a few weeks, i remember it took a long time to get my tactics together on the last version, to learn the maps and new weapons.
