Dread thinks I'm a special person

i can't understand how anyone can find the new maps boring. All the new maps look stunningly gorgeous. The only map that could be improved is Falaise Pocket, it really reminds me of Operation Battleaxe where all you do is run from flag to another, it looks very good though. The new maps are a huge improvement from the maps of earlier versions, even those introduced in 0.6. It is amazing that it's only been a year since the same team made low quality maps like Bagration, Wernhein, Caucasus and Hailar. I wonder how good will the maps in the upcoming versions be if the quality continues improving with the same pace.
terminal-strikeNordwinds 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.
To not make this completely and advertisement and offtopic:
I don't think the new maps are boring. Completely the opposite. I like them all.
I think the new maps are great, lots of space for tank battles, Especially the dester maps, shame the pacific maps don't work :( tarawa is beautiful

i dpn't care about the pacific maps, the only theatre i basically (like to) play is the european theatre. :p
Supercharge bad? *Bitchslaps*
I think new maps are nice. Big maps with a lot interesting places and posibilities. May be you need more time to like new maps, I don't know. I think devs have done a great maping for 0.65.
the new maps ive played are pretty freaking good, although the all airplane ones like battle of britain and bomb the reich such for me cause i dont have a joystick yet (although that will change today or tomorrow). but the other maps are pretty fun imo
My favorites are Tarawa, Rheinuebüng (dunno how to spell that), Nordwind and Sector318. All great maps!
I think the problem is we've all played BF and FH for so long there's no really new and fresh map designs. Everyone has been there, done that, got the postcard. And it's no ones fault. There's only so much you can do with the game engine. I do hate the symetrical, DICE style map making, which I think is F. Pocket's biggest downfall.
At the very least, I think everyone should commend the team on their efforts to eye candy up the maps. And yes, Nordwind :bows: . Good times.
Desert maps own... I love having Fallschirmjager available on so many maps.
