Why is that? It seems like a cool map, but I only cruised around solo on it.

Do you mean Atlantis?

Its too laggy, and you need a lot of people to play it. The problem is most people hate it so they leave the server when it comes on, thus only a small amount of people are left to play it.

Its a vicious cycle.

Adak is boring, so no one plays it. Its that simple. Walking for 10 minutes just to get killed and having to walk that same 10 minutes again to get to the action is not fun. Japanese equipment vs. American equipment is not fun, unless its air war. But planes are pointless, because there's no flags in the air.

It looks great, but it plays terrible.

Well, I must say that I have played Adak Island online alot more than Invasion of the Phillipines!!

In 4 months of playing consistantly in at least 6 different servers, I played it for the first time last week on the Buxom Bombadiers server.

Imagine my suprise when I discovered 2 P-36 Hawks sitting on the US held runway.

My .2 cents worth.

I think the map plays great, it's one of the most beautifull maps in Forgotten Hope. Because the action is a little further apart it's something different from alot of other "bunnyhopper" maps as BoW would say ;).

Map is alittle sucky till the ticket bleed for the japs stops then its great. The map is beautiful and it has some l33t skins for planes and jeeps. Defending the airbase with the cool looking raised AA is pretty fun too.

Yeah, the map is one of the best looking maps I have seen, but the gameplay for some reason just isn't fun.

Most of the action on that map is going on at the airfield, so I don't really see a need to go to the other flags. Maybe if the other flags had a greater purpose to capture them, then it would be more enjoyable.

Also, the jeep and aa models should be on more maps, they are very impressive.

I usualy just bum about the bottom flag when this map comes up and mess about in the hut and the tank.In the whole game i meet about 2 japs and usualy the automatic garand pwns them.... Once i had a fun game but it was at the airfield.The japs jumped on the destroyer docked near the airfield and stayed on when it began sailing away, then there was a massive pirate style knife fight which ended up in a high speed landing craft chase till i got kamikazed by some noob in a zero.Still pretty fun :smokin:

I have never played invasion of the philipenes online, i played it offline myself once and seen the 2 mothballed american fighters on the runway.Invasion of the philipenes was the best map in vannila but in FH no one plays it.

I like Adak. Had some good times as engineer, in a jeep "escorting" the tank as it moves between outposts, clearing out enemy engineers that lay down mines on the road etc. Of course this requiers a teammate with more brains than a monkey, not that easy to find. :)

If the mapmaker is interested in changing it I would suggest moving the flags closer to eachother.
