Any reason for map makers to hold out?

#1usmovers_02Posted 1/30/2013 3:25:35 AM
It's shocking to think that this game has been out for a while and I've only made 2 maps (considering I made 200+ between FCIP and FC2). But I just see no reason to make maps for FC3.

But I see people posting their maps her. So my question is why are people still making maps? Have people not realized making MP maps is a waste of time or am I missing something?

Ubisoft is apparently making a big announcement within the next few hours regarding everyone's major complaints. Let's hope they're fixing the terrible match making setup and we'll have a reason to actually make maps again.

Don't get your hopes up, though. It's probably something extremely stupid like "We hear your concerns, we're trying to fix some issues 'n' stuff.

Well now he's saying that info's all written up and waiting to be posted, and that he's just waiting on confirmation from a higher up to get the permission to post it.
He also said that he "hopes" he can post it for us tonight... Even though they already said previously that'd it'd be up in a few hours.

So definitely don't hold your breath now.

I kind of expected as much.

Well, hopefully it will be worth the wait.

He's now stated:
"it doesn't have to do with vehicles, but if you are a map maker (hence my answer in this forum), I think you will be pleased. :) "

So HOPEFULLY it means we will be able to now host public lobbies finally, and get to play our own maps for once. This also means players will be able to join lobbies that only have good maps in rotation instead of wading through the Player Maps tiers and dealing with crap maps (even in the GOLD tier).

Wow nothing to do with vehicles? Do I need to mail a copy of FCIP to Ubi?

Grrr... I'm getting my hopes up. I should know better by now.

And they STILL won't talk about vehicles?!? At this point I certainly don't expect them to add in vehicles but do they not see that admitting they screwed up would actually REDEEM them in some peoples eyes?!? Well... it might have helped if they hadn't flat out ignored us for months on end.

Yeah well it's now been about 20 hours since he's said "the announcement will be made in a couple hours!" so way to miss a "deadline" again Ubi. Pretty sure he's offline for the night now too.

What a terribly run company, it shouldn't take 24 hours to get a go-ahead to post an announcement that's already been announced to be taking place shortly....

You know... EA almost became a non crappy company for a little while. They even started getting original around the time Mirrors Edge and Dead Space 1 came out. It didn't last all that long and they became a crappy company again but there WAS a period of time they didn't suck.

It could happen to Ubisoft too someday...
