What? Submachine gun sucks? That is a big bowl of shit. It can be an incredible weapon, you probably just aren't very good. And I've never noticed any resemblance between Age of Aquarius and YYZ.Who wants to use the Submachine Gun? There's a reason why it's a minor weapon in most good maps: it sucks! A prime dueling map, my arse. This is terrible. And the architecture is almost unique, until you realize he just rips it off of Age of Aquarius, which is almost a good map, except it actually is really bad.
I guess asking for 30 unique maps was a bit too much to ask, huh?
Infinite Rhapsody. Don't get me started here. All he did was rip off Duality, but he missed the point of the original completely. I know that it's some kind of clever combination, but it fails because it looks and feels like Duality, only without the strategy. So it's just a giant, boring arena. Like Happy Hour. And the weapons are about as hard to find. Next.

There needs to be strategy to weapon usage, and that's just completely out the window here, as the most powerful weapon will always always win. And infinite ammunition makes the whole concept of limited ammo meaningless. What was he thinking?

Have you played on Jerusalem's Lot? Shotgun whoring is hard to do. What you don't notice when wandering around the map in single-player is that it's hard to get more than a handful of shells. And "nobody likes the SMG?" I do, and I think enough other people do to consider it a good weapon against shotgun whores on this map.Shotgun whoring is the real way to win this one! Again, what was he thinking? Were these maps tested at all? This isn't fun to play.

Most of it is the mapper trying to be super trendy and unique, and having the whole mess come up short. It's a lot better than Red Spectrum, though! In Underworld, there's at least some strategy and crap. But the layout is even worse, if you can imagine that! Nothing seems to go in the right direction, and the architecture is just confusing and weird. A unique experience? Yeah, right!What do you think of Underworld?

I like how you make no mention to the creative process of mapping, which is far more difficult than launching the editor.If only you knew how hard it is to make a map, maybe you should try out a map editor. Every time you want to use it, it requires a full reboot to OS9 or another app that runs OS9 in it. You can never please every one. And if you do please some people, I guess your job is complete.
And to shadowbreaker, He didn't say he could do better... He is allowed to give his 5 cents on the maps. I actually like this stuff, the more negativity on the maps, the more they get changed and the better they get, so if there were no posts or topics like these, we'd all have a collection of crap maps.

Its also coming from the shitty mapper who made superhoribble mappack: Glass to the Arson

Basically, shotguns are as broke as an ex-nun and I've been in games where someone may have been sick of getting killed in one shot, and placed alternate weapons around, but what should you hear other than from the mighty Ryoko and all his friends? "OMG WHERE IS SHOTGUN UGH NEED 1 HIT 1 KILL TO SURVIVE OMG!"
Very few maps in RS have an overwhelming Shotgun presence, and those that do are intentional. Like The Wildfire -- the map is, what, two years old? I'm very much aware that the Shotguns are overpowered. That's the point of the map.

Tiny? Nothing comparable? It's fairly open, and the SMG will blow people away at long range.YYZ is a tiny box with the Rocket Launcher and no comparable weapons.
Ryoko had just banned your mordekai account...
