I can't be the only one who leaves a lobby when 10+ people out of 18 vote for Ragnarok the moment it pops up. I don't know what it is about the map, but I haven't been fond of it since it debuted in Halo 3. Anyone else feel the same way?
I've played that map thousands of times and I could play it millions more. That map is perfection.

Ragnarok should just be put in a 24/7 playlist and removed from everything else. That way, people can still play on Ragnarok the whole time like they do already, and people who don't like playing on Ragnarok all the time can actually play on other maps. Same goes for Exile.
Ragnorok would be great without the mantis. It is literally the cause of all the maps problems.
It's powerful, but not very durable, so both teams just sit their mantis somewhere where it is almost completely safe. Ragnarok is THE big vehicle map, but you can't use any vehicle as long as the enemy mantis is alive, and since no vehicle except for the mantis can contest it it just stays alive the entire game camping it's own side of the map and completely killing any chance to do anything but sit behind rocks and try not to get sniped because the rifles have a huge ordinance priority on that map.
I loathed Ragnarok in Halo3 but i really enjoy it in this game. Go figure. The Mantis can be a pain but i generaly avoid it if im on foot / Ghost. Or target it if im Banshee / Mantis. Once its out of commission, the maps good fun
