Play the ♥♥♥♥ing custom maps
Are you not bored of the regular maps yet?

Why are custom-map servers always so empty?

Why are we voting in iwo-gema 4x times in a row?

You people ♥♥♥♥ me off.

The custom maps, with a few exceptions, are terrible.

Bridges of Druzhina and Winterwald are as much fun as a visit to the dentist. They suffer from the same problems that many custom maps do; not enough cover at start of round and too many objectives which achieves nothing but an awful grind from start to finish.

The official maps are designed to allow almost every class to serve an important purpose (with certain exceptions like Marksman on Barracks which is mostly useless or some anti-tank classes on maps without tanks...go figure.) They're balanced and timed appropriately.

Oh my god..

Custom maps are not terrible... you have to know how to play them.

They are advanced maps, they require teamwork and players to know wtf they are doing.

LOL. How long did it take for a fanboy to come into the thread and dispute criticism by suggesting that he simply knows how to play better? LMAO.

But I do play the custom maps... on servers that usually have a max of 4 people and lots of bots.
To be fair when I do get onto populated servers with custom maps the play is usually better. People tend to be more patient, complain less and tend to learn to deal with stuff quicker. That never seems to translate well when a number of maps become official, like Otori shima. Was a great map when it was unofficial, when it became official people find it almost impossible to cap A at times, and even when (if) that happens, B becomes impossible in most cases.

I, too, endorse putting these custom maps in the mix if just for some variety. The unbalanced maps will become obvious quickly, and the others should be mainstreamed. Tig's whining in this instance I cannot support. Redundancy is redundancy, and the maps on the servers are way too repetitious.

You've only just started playing on our server and you already b|tch.... Aussie / NZ has one of the widest selection of custom maps around.

How about you pay to run yer own server then you can do as you please.

No no no no, custom maps are like stock maps, there are good ones and bad ones, or more approriotly, ones you like and ones you don't, you just need to play them and give feedback on what you liked for the ones you enjoyed, and feed back on why you didn't like on the ones you disliked, map authors need as much feedback as possible on there maps.

I hear ya, SU-37 but I believe I did that here in this thread. Custom maps that don't have enough cover at start of round and have too many objectives are painful to play.

Yeah and it's a fantastic server for running thsoe customs, I applaud those aussies.
But playing on a server halfway around the world, with 300 ping, is not ideal.

And what good would it do to start another server that will just remain empty? It's the people that are the problem. The admins for not putting anything new in their map rotations, and the players for voting in the same garbage over and over and over again. Or the players joining in on the wrong servers, the servers that refuse to put anything new in.

Custom maps where the ♥♥♥♥ in RO1. Everyone played them.

lol that annoys me just as much. It's a decent map, but grossly over-played.

I once played a server that voted that map in 3 times in a row. It was ♥♥♥♥ing ridiculous. Do people not like variety?

You obviously haven't played enough customs. There are plenty of fantastic ones out there. Any they don't always have to be completely even and fair, sometimes it's just nice to have a change in scenery.

Have you tried STREAM ? That one is freaking beautiful, so much eye-candy. Yet never played.

We are working on a new system to promote the downloading and play of community maps. We'll be talking more about it in the near future.
