Bigger is NOT better!

6 Replies 301 Views Created 18-03-2012

I just played on the newest map available with the beta (the one with up to 32 players) and i thought it was no fun whatsoever :smileysad:
Beforehand I'd played on the space and (pipe level?) quite alot and managed to reach level 10. I loved the design of these levels and managed to become a decent player, getting around 25-30 kills per game on average.
But as soon as the Dust map came out, i dunno... the whole perception of the game has changed for me. It's almost like a machine armageddon game now rather than an FPS. I was actually thinking of shelling out £40+ for this game on its release, but no longer!
Moan over... i just want to know what you think of the new map? Cheers.

Re: Bigger is NOT better!

I take it you never played Warhawk then?

 

The bigger maps (most of the time) were brilliant !!! The problem with the game at the moment is the lack on incentive to go into the middle of the map. Everything is centered around the two bases or air combat.

 

If Capturable bases are put back into the game then this will change greatly.

 

But yes I do get where you are coming from.

Re: Bigger is NOT better!

Since the addition of Dust i've liked the game even better!!!!

Its large playing area suites my cowardly style of play for sneaking round the rocks with a sniper rifle.....

Re: Bigger is NOT better!

I love the massive scale of multiplayer. I am a MMORPG gamer and fan of MAG.
So I love it. The problem is, on the beta, the 30player maps keep disconnecting before I can join the gameplay

Re: Bigger is NOT better!

I always played 32 player games on Warhawk but at the moment, I'm enjoying the 16-player games more on Starhawk. This is mainly due to the B&B limit which, if you're playing on 'Blitz', gets used up quickly. That makes creating solid forward bases difficult and, as a result, it means a stupid number of players spawning in the homebase and (even worse) staying there.

 

WE NEED PERMANANT CAPTURE POINTS - PLEASE!!!

 

This is what made Warhawk such an epic game, it meant that battles were fought all over the map. In fact, it usually meant that the homebases were the quietest areas! I'm sure Zones will go some way to help but if I had one recommendation it wouldn't even be about the build limit, it would be for these captureable areas.

Re: Bigger is NOT better!

This is why I would like a 48 point cap on 32 maps
