Maybe IW was hoping that most of players who play Ghost weren't around for MW2 because Ignition is so blatantly similar to Scrapyard that the it wasn't even 10 seconds after starting my first match that I was having flashbacks.
I mean holy dogshit the maps are so identical that they left a forklift in the same exact spot. The vehicle garage is laid out the exact same. the downed plane in the middle of the map! Sure they dressed it up a bit, but not very well. there' that giant ball in one corner of the map that's oddly similar to a water tower on Scrapyard that was in the same spot.
Remember that truck that was on fire next to a generator located in the opposite corner of the water tower? Well there's the same configuration on Ignition, only the truck isn't on fire.
Most obvious to me is the office building adjacent to the warehouse. The stairs of the office building are exactly in the same configuration as Scrapyard and same goes for the decrepit warehouse/hanger. There's a ladder on side and the other has stairs leading up to the catwalk. Can it get any more similar? Yes, it can. There's the same vantage points and window set up followed by something more coincidental, everything is laid out on the map in the same order. The giant ball (which to me looks more and more like a water tower) is next to the office building, the ramp leading into the garage is on the side of the warehouse/hanger thingy. It's all laid out the same.
The reason I care so much about this is that I paid for this map. I mean why not have the common courtesy to give me the same map. it's insulting to try to sneak a poorly masked copy and paste job into the DLC. From now on, instead of trying to tell me that the DLC features 4 new maps just come out and say, "DLC feature 3 new maps and a nostalgia map". Far less of a slap in the face.
You could at least take me out to dinner first...
Confused. Are you ranting about Containment or Ignition?
I'm ranting about Ignition. I'm not sure how Containment got mixed in but I fixed it.
Well, I agree but they told us in advance it was a reskin of Scrapyard.
I preferred R Kelly's ReMix of Ignition personally.
And since they STILL haven't put these maps in rotation, haven't really played it more than once.

In all the previews...

And in the DLC info on the Web Page...http://www.callofduty.com/ghosts/dlc/dlc1-onslaught
Inspired by Scrapyard – the fan-favorite Call of Duty®: Modern Warfare® 2 map – Ignition drops players into an aging space launch facility. With rockets crash-landing into the area of operations, players must be ready for fast run-and-gun combat, leveraging the environment's debris fields and exposed fuselages for cover. Players can also trigger two different rocket engine tests that send massive jets of fire to incinerate enemy players caught inside their blast radius
I never saw the "Inspired by Scrapyard" part. What I saw was "4 unique maps" and "Onslaught...all new content". I didn't look much further into than that as I assumed those last two quotes meant we were getting new maps. I would also like to point out that Ignition wasn't inspire by Scrapyard, it is Scrapyard. There's really no other way of putting it. The map is the exact same thing. I wouldn't even call it a reskin.
The only real change I saw was in the underground tunnel added near the L Shaped Fuselage/Whatever it is now and the interactive Jet Engine in the right side hangar. Had fun when I played it, but you know my feelings on re-skins and bringing back old maps ( I am against it, just in case you didn't lol)
