Impressions of the new map pack??

C'mon, admit it - even though you SWORE you weren't going to buy it, you did!

Me, too....

So what's everyone think so far? I think it's better than the last offering. The only map I liked on the last DLC was Detour. These all seem to be fairly large maps. I think I'm going to have the most problems on Dig, but so far I think I like them all.

Been playing with bots most of the morning, just trying to figure out the layouts and figure things out.

Thoughts? Opinions? Tips?

first thoughts are good the maps are great it just the playstyle of the game changes for 3-4 days

i have to run perks i hate running like ghost, cold blooded vlid eye, dead silence  i have to play like a corner camper just to get a v-sat once i've got that though things change lol will be 10 times better next week!!

overall id say 7/10

(This just for Frost).  Funny thing is I tend to do well on some new maps (I did well on Magma at first too) for the first few games because I play very cautiously, moving from cover to cover and avoiding being in the open for too long.  Then there's a down time when I think I have the map down.  Then back to normal. 

Extreme rushers and one-spot campers are particularly annoying in new maps because I'm trying to learn the map and the 5-15 rushers by happenstance will stumble in the middle of my team's spawn; and, obvioulsy, the one-spot campers will catch me off guard.  Once I learn the maps, things get back to normal. 

Immerse me.

I like Frost.  It's like Uplink except the buildings are more spread out like they're supposed to be.  I don't like Uplink because it's just too cluttered.

No .. It is not Array .. It kind of reminds me of Berlin Wall in the previous release .. But without that annoying middle part ..

I have it, but have not played it.

The problem with DLC is: If you buy one, you either have to disable it, or buy them all (otherwise you find no games).  I plan on playing some today so I may report back.

I like it.  TBH there aren't many maps in the whole of BO2 I dislike, apart from perhaps Hijacked and Nuketown.  It isn't that I dislike those, more a case that they don't work in domination, which is all I play.  Dig is a real "who has the quickest reactions" map.

You play Domination and you dislike Hijacked ?? It's about the only map I like .. Always have action .. Interesting ..

Domination is the only thing I play .. I can't be bothered with anything else .. And most of these maps torment me except for the recycled maps from BO1 ..

Playing Frost the other day, and some dude shot on the side of the map and then he fell into the ice .. I thought that was hilarious (he probably didn't though) .. The maps okay, I just wish they threw in some second story buildings (of course, there may be some, I just haven't found them yet) .. Not much to say on the other maps except they really opened up Stadium .. Much more action now ..
