Why all the hate for Solace?

#1weezergabePosted 1/2/2013 11:17:48 AM
So why do most people dislike Solace? For me, it rarely gets voted and personally it is one of my favorite maps. Yes, it is a little large but not as wide open as complex. It "feels" more like a Halo map in terms of the environment, its symmetrical, and large gravity cannon in the middle (even tho it is useless.)

So who else likes this map, and if not, why not?


Oh and my top 3 Slayer maps are

Adrift
Abandon
Solace

People hate it because when they were playing with that one pro player, he said he hated it. So then people started to want to be cool and hate Solace too.

Then before you know it. All the "cool" people hated Solace and it was this trend. Like wearing sweatpants.

You don't spawn on the symetrical sides of solace, its far to big, and has no power positions. Not to mention its cluttered with crap and is just bad map design.

Always remember you're unique, just like everyone else.

I actually like it a lot (it's my 3rd favorite small map after Haven and Adrift). Had some of my most fun games on Solace.

Speaking of CTF...
Why do people always pick Ragnarok? Every time I play CTF, Ragnarok is played like 3 times. I'm not sure if this is a good map for CTF or not, its just chosen by everyone, all the time. CTF lacks variety because of this.
Same with Complex on Flood.

People pick Ragnarok because it is the only Remake map in this game.

Lets hope 343 can make some better maps in the future
