Cut the persecution complex crap jblank, I gave my opinion because it's what I believe.  I dont' give a rats ass if it's the same or different than yours.  I was merely pointing out that the map is not too dark to see what's going on.  If you think it is, you need to check your eyes/tv/console settings, or just not play the new maps.

Just because people disagree with you and defend their position doesn't mean it's a personal attack and it definitely doesn't mean you have to get all whiney about it.  the map is supposed to be darker than most of the maps.  That's because it's night time and so people can move/hide in the shadows.

Again with the Psychiatry huh? Why don't you shove that bullshit you keep saying about me up your ass. I swear to God, if I didn't know better I would think you were RunningMan9 or whatever the fuck that cocksuckers name is from OO. God damn you're a prick.

Lets lay off the personal attacks jblank.  After reading this thread all I see is people trying to help you, or give you suggestions that might give you a better experience.  Instead you turn around and start to bite that hand that feeds you as they say.  Your're entitled to your opinion and please share them in a civil way without resorting to attacks on other forum members.

Ok, but tell Sigmund Freud and his cronies to keep the psychoanalysis to themselves.

Where are your annotated maps, Hark?

I really like Knee Deep - one of my favourite maps overall. I actually like Nightfire a lot, too. Unfortunately, while the embers and ashes are really pretty and give the map a good "living" feel, they are driving my eyes nuts. I don't really like Station all that much. Feels a bit too claustrophobic.

I don't think any of the maps are too dark, especially compared to Makin. There is one section of Nightfire where the building is eternally eroding to dust and that shit is hard to see through, but the rest of the map looks fine to me.

BTW, is anyone else having horrendous spawning issues on any of the new maps? I find Nightfire especially bad.

I kept on firing at the ashes, mistaking them for enemy movement out of the corner of my eye.

They were supposed to fix the spawning issues but id they did it's not working.  on Nightfire there were several times I spawned, got maybe one step and was gunned down.

I could have made a sandwich with the amount of time I didn't played during a match of Nightfire the other night.

They fixed spawning so you wouldn't pop up in someone's line of sight.

One foot to the right around a corner is apparently an acceptable spawn location.  icon_neutral

As an aside, anyone else register for the sweepstakes they were having with the new maps?

Do the new maps show up in the regular rotation or do I have to specifically play the new map option in the game list? I've played about 4 hours worth of online game time since I downloaded the new maps and have yet to see one show up. What gives?

I have no idea if I'm registered. I downloaded the pack or whatever it was with the gamerpics - do I actually have to use the pics or something? The description doesn't explain it very well.

I gotta say, the Canadian XBL experience is really confusing at times. When I bought the W@W mappack, I had two options: The World at War Mappack, and Mappack 1 (English). Why the hell are they're two?

For now you need to play them from the Mappack playlist. I did the exact same thing when the CoD4 pack was released, so don't feel too bad. Then again, I am an idiot.

So apparently by getting the default "Call of Duty World at War Map Pack 1" (which was the default one at the top) and not the "Map Pack 1 (English)," I got the fucking French version. I wouldn't have even noticed, except I played a round of the new zombie map and everything was in French, including the audio. I only play hardcore, so for all I know the entire UI in the regular modes is all in French, too. Even worse, I'd have to pay another 800 points to get the English version, it's not an option to choose the language after you'd paid.

that's pretty f'n lame.  can you call microsoft and have them remove it and credit the points?  The ambiguousness of the entries should give you a valid reason.

I'm going to call them tomorrow. Here's hoping they can help.

Here's why this happened:

Who wouldn't go with the default one? Here's the choices in other locations:

Now, if you go to the map pack in spotlight, it defaults to the English version, but everywhere else defaults to the French.

I have now played the new maps one time each.

Nightfire: I loved this map. All the CQC fits right into my play style and there are tons of flanking channels. Can't wait till I know it better

Knee Deep: I really enjoyed this one too, but don't quite yet have a sense of the place- but the battles around that three level tower (is it in the center? I'm not sure) were really cool

Station(?): not sure if that's what it's called but it's my least favorite of the three new maps.  It's not bad, just sort of meh.

Overall the map pack is excellent.

I don't get why people continually veto new maps when they come up. This happened in COD4 all the time too.

Makes no sense to me.

It may have something to do with their opinion that they aren't very good. I veto them also, except for Knee Deep which I think is arguably the best map on the game. The other two are throwaways and the "veto frequency" seems to confirm that others feel that way also.

Thanks for the info. I tried Red Fraction Guerrilla MP last night but found it too frantic. I've looked at the previews of the new CoDWaW maps and was impressed. Hopefully they do like last time and let us do Hardcore Team Deathmatch using the new map pack right away.

no,they dont(not that i could find anyway)...so that means i am getting owned by 5 year olds with machine guns,means nothing if you shoot them in the head 4 times,they still turn around and spray the shit outta ya

the 3 maps are not bad(not played the Zombie Swamp thing)....the one i was least looking forward to,the one with the bridge(because i thought,thats all it was ..a bridge)is the best one IMO...it has the bridge,and caves underneath

the other two,submarine base and an old disused Train yard(yes,another train yard)..are okay,a decent size..offices,walkways,innards of a submarine etc


whether its worth 800 points depends on how much you play,i havent played for 3 months,so perhaps it was a bit too much for me,then again maybe i will play more

Under "New Maps" (or actually next to it, once you select it), there is IIRC five options, the bottom two are HC Team Deathmatch and HC something else.

I was able to hold my own on Corrosion and Sub Pens, but wow am I lost on Banzai. Everywhere I go is a death trap. I only played the maps 1 or 2 times each, but I think Corrosion is my favorite so far. Lost of fun places to go, like through the pipes and on top of the grain cars.
