So, I know everybody is busy either unlocking the new DLC guns, or discussing the matter on here, but can we possibly spare a thought for something more important?
The maps. The base game maps are ok, some are good, some not so good. I don't think any of them will become future classics, but they were good enough to keep us going until the DLC maps came out.
However, I hate to say it, but the DLC maps have been somewhat underwhelming. DIce have done a great job of making them look good, but how long did people play TSNP before going back to the base maps?
I had hoped that TSNP was just a temporary dip in form, but I've not even played ITNOTS a week and I'm finding myself back on the vanilla maps.
It's not that all the DLC maps are bad, but it just feels like DIce are using some random map generating software to create the maps and then letting the artwork people add the finishing touches to give them that veneer of quality.
I look back and remember BF3 and BF4 maps (mostly BF3 tbh) being much better than BF1. Am I looking at the old maps through rose tinted spectacles, or has there been a major dip in form with BF1?
