I think the maps are rather good. I would say Hydro and Grind are equally as good or the best of the 4, then Mirage and lastly Downhill. Downhill would actually be good if it were smaller. Should've just kept it to the lift station area.
yeah, Downhill is a shit map and i'm not a fan at all the other 3 are absolutely great. really starting to fall in love with Mirage.
1.Downhill-Provides Flanking routes and many long lines of sight.
2.Mirage-Great map for many gamemodes.
3.Grind-Center of the map is extremely one-sided, but provides many vantage points
4.Hydro-Sound is terrible, but is symmetrical.
The first time I played hydro I nearly $hit my self lol the Asia guy speaking over the tanoy is so realistic and loud ! Lol when it starts to flood .
They are all quite fun, however I've only had Mirage a couple of times so my opinion on that map isn't well established yet.
1 hydro, 2 Grind ,3 Mirage and last Down hill I would maybe like Down hill better but I've hardly played it ! It's never in the rotation
play type: KC, TDM, DEM
downhill - not as good as i expected it to be. everyone congregates by the lift area. makes playability feel smaller that it is. no one uses the edges of the map where some great battles could be had. feels stale already.
mirage - best of the pack. its a circle play style on this one and each area of the map is routinely used. has good elevation changes and sightlines.
hydro - loud, but i like that. reminds me of silo and launch. great for demolition. LSAT with a thermal on this map playing DEM is fun. a little too symetrical though. i would like the water release to be more often. seems the frequence is kinda low.
grind - good for fast pace headless chicken style play. some good hidden sightlines that will suprise you. lots of odd obstacles and lines. not bad for a 3 run route map.
overall rating 7/10.
