I agree...the spawn points need to be fixed. I am unable to start to run before getting picked by multiple smg's on almost every map. What Ive noticed is that most of the time it is smarter to kill then turn around and run the other way..hardly the way that I like to play..
I think that the level design in Black Ops II is the best yet... Before now it was Call of Duty 2
I think the maps (ones I've played at least) are fantastic! I've always enjoyed small maps though. Spawns I can deal with once I figure them out and can predict where and when the enemy is going to spawn around me. It was funny, I caught someone dancing in the bar on Plaza lastnight lol.
There are only 2 maps I don't like - Hijacked and Carrier - and the rest are pretty decent. Way better than MW3 anyway.
