HD2 online community is small and i hardly find anybody on servers. But when i do find players on servers, i don't wanna waste my time on maps like Escape from Hell. Also many other maps like modifications of CZ market place looks pointless to me ( like Norsk resistance etc).

I just thought there was a Best maps server which can be played when i log in. Of course, i don't want maps of my choosing alone. Maybe we can discuss and reach a consensus on maps which we all think are Best.

What are your best maps NL? What are yours Snow? Nikita? Funzo?.... Then we can prepare a list of our common choice and interest. Maybe 6-7 maps. That's all.

I actually like CZ market place, and that is the point I made earlier. You are really thinking way too much about your own preferences but like I said, we run our servers for everyone. If you are alone on the server you can simply vote nextmap. If there is someone else you can ask if they want to nextmap, Apart from that, a map with only 7 maps will get boring very very fast.

Trust is hard to gain but easy to lose.

You misunderstood me NL. CZ Market place is among my favorite maps also. I was talking about OTHER modifications of this map which are pointless and boring.

CZ market place original is good. CZ market place with one objective of kill all enemy is also good (that's killing around 80 enemies with 3 Tanks).

But CZ Partisan Resistance, Night, Ambush, Hart's war are NOT good. Partisan resistance is weird with spawn with Mosaint Nagant along with NCPs. Problem with such type of maps is that you have to reacquire weapon every time you spawn after dead. Similar to in escape from hell.

Hart's war is silly where you run all around map to complete objectives. Then many times there is a glitch and you can't complete objectives and gets stuck. CZ night is also bad in too much darkness.


My list of Best maps

Brest Original.
Sicily 2 original
Sicily (Boom).
Burgundy France 2 Original
Burgundy Farmstead
Libya 2
Libya 2 Tiger Tomb
CZ Original and Market place (kill all enemy)
CZ lumber mill
CZ Bunker
Alps (forest fight)
Africa (Art of Sand)
Africa Tank battle
Africa Battlefield
Normandy crossing the bridge (i don't recall original mapname)


These are my Best maps list. It doesn't mean i don't like other maps. I do, except some of the maps.

But again you are focusing on your personal taste, I like Hart's war. Bugs happen in many maps and sometimes the server is to blame. That is just part of buggy HD2.

In fact I hate all dark maps because I can never see shit due to a a large and bright window I have behind my monitor. But some like them so we still have them in our lists. I also hate most Alps maps because the enemy can spot you through trees, or what about the maps where the fog is too thick and enemies spot you but you can't see them yet? But I still think they should remain in the lists.

Most important are:

-maps that cater to the taste of most players
-variety
-multiple configs so you don't always play the same maps (again variety)
-larger maplists so you don't play the same maps again and again in each game session.

Some maps are truly pointless, like Norway where you have to board the minesweeper. This mission almost ALWAYS fails and is a waste of time.
In a way the same with the Castle mission where you have to escort Salter to the gate, 9 out of 10 times she will freeze and you cannot finish the mission.

Trust is hard to gain but easy to lose.

I have seen Hart's war fail due to bug many times.

I agree. Other problem i face is that my IPS monitor gives very bad glare and backlight bleed which makes all these Dark maps unplayable and irritating.

I am not asking to shun all the problem maps or bad maps. All i am saying is that a seperate server should be created which doesn't have these bad maps. Those who still wanna play these bad maps (like Norway steam piping or escape from hell or CZ Dark), they can always go to Justice server or Original server to play these maps. But why club the good maps and bad maps together in one server?

Yes. I agree. That's why i called for discussion to build a consensus on best maps. There are many maps which all of us like very much. We can club these maps together in a separate server.

Yes steam piping and Castle are bad. Once i was stuck in Castle with noob players. They also didn't wanna play it but they don't know how to vote for next map (haha). You can see how irritating it can get. Similar problem is with Dark maps.
