Is this a thread about Black Box? This map is messed up. I was looking forward to it emmensely because I loved the idea of Air Force One crashed into a hillside mansion as a battleground. However this map has such aweful flow to it. It seems the only way to do well is to be a campy sniper because thats all I keep getting my arse owned by. Barretts, MSR, L118A, and ACRs. I spawn somewhere move 2 steps and get sniped. I spawn behind that sniper, kill him then I get sniped. I cap B then I get sniped. Even when Im sniping myself its not uncommon to get sniped while Im lining up shots. Playing KC I see red and gold tags littering the battlefield because 90% of the players in the game are sitting in their perch and wont even move to grab the bloody tags!
I love sniping too but I also love capping flags and collecting tags, both of which are tediously difficult to accomplish when there are 9000 lines of sight for snipers to pick me off at any moment.
Im not against having a sniper friendly map, Im against having a camper friendly map and Black Box is camper heaven. Campers have so many places to choose from. North mansion (multiple levels), south mansion (multiple levels), unfinished mansion (multiple levels), plane nose upper level, plane nose lower level, plane middle, plane tail, under the wing, etc. Take a look at Estate from MW2. That was a big sniper friendly map and sure it was very campy at times but the camping spots were limited to 2 or 3 main areas that you could navigate to without being completely exposed.
