Hey Kimi,
I think they re good for sp but multi they arent to good for fps reasons. Lets hope they get that damned SDK out so the adults can fix this game. gl

I know this is probably a noobish question, but can you tell me what maps lagging means? I think I already know, but would like it confirmed. Sorry for going of the subject.. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/blink.gif

why do people make comments about large AS maps being laggy, but don't even bother with the even larger custom maps? All with complex textures and cycle-shredding 80-tango settings. Do you not play custom maps? Oh that's right, clanners don't bother with custom maps, they spend all their time playing the same maps over and over practicing for matches. What a boring waste of a GAME.

What's wrong with just playing the official maps? Everybody is on a level playing field. With a custom map everybody runs around with no idea what they're doing unless they've been playing it for quite a while. Those who have been practicing on that map gain an unreasonable 'home-court' advantage. I am not a clanner, I just prefer a fair fight.

I'm sorry Euro but you're wrong in your assumption that clanners don't play custom maps. I, for one (and yes, i'm in a clan), love to play a particular custom map called Senn. And I know MANY clanners who love to play Anti-Camper.

There are also many people in clans who CREATE custom maps. Now, if clanners don't play custom maps, why would they bother to create them for the community?

EDIT: And I also love the graphics in the Sri Lanka map with the Buddha type figure and waterfalls. It's a fairly large map, and I don't experience the same choppiness I notice in AS maps.

I think the maps are great. Now if only UBI didn't release this game with such a major oversight, but that's a thread unto its' own.

too bad jackal, it's staying. I've had a few people tell me it's alright, and it's all I need.

i really like about 90% of them, the two i don't like is only because of the huge fps drop i get, especially becaues they are backalley and suburb ... i mean it's not even THAT big but it drops my FPS the most? whatever, i just need to avoid those i guess.

P.S. They do look great.

i hate how ravenshield in general is become a FRAG spam fest. especially on a few maps like the nuke one, and the boat one.. bah. but the college university or whatever is a nice map. i like that for coop and team survival. really fun.

the others look very nice. have some great game play too. i hate frags. why do so many people frag fest.. thats lame, and not even fun at all. thats like giving a kid an axe to play with (assuming he could carry it). lame, and no pride i say. the lowest degree of winning. but that doesnt have to do with the maps really, but it is common to see it on certain maps.

You forgot to add something to the poll that may have been interesting:

I havent bought AS yet only cuz of all the negitive responces i have heard about it in public forums.

I dont come here much so if its added you can put my vote under that one.

The maps are way too big. They must think bigger is better, it aint.

They have both good and bad parts. I use to play on the SMAK servers all the time with Raven Shield. I had a blast, some of the best FPS gaming i've had occured there.

2 days ago i bought athena's sword. I have upgraded my computer since i played Raven Shield and thought i'd be in store for some kick *edit*gaming, instead i played "find the campers in huge *edit* maps with a bajillion camping spots."

Also wth.. 7 new weapons? comeon already..

Oh, try running by a serious of windows while shooting someone out side.. That is TRUE lag. Damn near killed my computer last time i did that. And yes, my computer is good, it can run SWG no prob.

Please watch the language.

I also think that the map makers were lazy in re-using a bunch of objects from RVS maps, such as doors, boxes, etc. I expected a whole new feel, not things that I see in RVS maps.

Yeah, no self respecting terrorist would go to the same Ikea to buy the same home furnishings. That's how they tracked down Saddam.

Maybe community custom maps are so much better than official maps because the people that make custom maps do so because they want to, and the official map makers only do so because it's a 9 to 5 job.

i dont think a self respecting terrorist would be in the plot in this game.
