You're arguing a completely different point. You seem to be saying CS maps aren't popular because of SS maps. That's great, but I couldn't care less about how popular CS maps are, and that was never the point of my first post. All I was saying in the first place is that having the option
of utilizing SS maps is a great thing, period, and that I really hope they integrate it into the UT engine. How is having more mapping options a BAD thing? So what if "new" players end up appreciating SS maps better, all that means is that there'll be more people playing! Last time I checked, that's not a bad thing. You're going at it from a mapper's standpoint (*see below), I'm from a players. That's why I think your logic, in my eyes, doesn't make sense. I'd rather have more "easy" map options available for playing & more players online; you'd rather have more CS mappers getting noticed. That's where we differ.
*I popped into T2 briefly and finally recognized your name; just never paid much attention to who's name was on the maps. No offense, but not everyone pays attention to who does what. =P And now that that's cleared up, you know what? I think you're more than slightly biased towards CS maps.
It makes sense you wouldn't like SS maps, otherwise you wouldn't have much of a name, eh?
(No offense intended, but I think it's an obvious assumption.)what I said is entirely accurate imo.
Again, that's your opinion, and it does seem somewhat biased towards the mapping rather than playing community. Your argument boils down to this: "SS maps have made CS maps less popular in Tribes so, therefore, eliminating SS maps would make CS maps more desireable." Well, yeah... Duh.
If you don't have the option of SS maps, then of course CS maps will get more play. But what you're saying sounds like a gaming form of censorship, in a way: if there are two options and the community favors one over the other, take away one to leave them no choice but to use the other. It's akin to a big phone company taking out a smaller one because it wants its services to be "more used" by the community. More options and choices is better, bottom line. That was my original & continuing point, and I hope that's cleared up now.
