about 4-5 times on each i pretty much got them as soon as they went up this morning and played for a few hours(until 3pm),will play some more though no doubt

the golf range(Hazard)i feel as though i will get to like,i fell off the cliff 3 times in one match icon_lol..and usually whenever i saw anyone they were on the other side of the map,as it has a long stretch through the middle with no obstacles,so people tend to stay to the sides,and that's where i kept falling off the cliff when firing at someone,i bet seeing that from their point of view must of made them laugh some disgust

the one i hate Silo,has a lot of buildings,so people were just popping out and i was shot in the back for most of my deaths,kinda reminds me off Array,but with more buildings(as there is a centre building again where you can look out over the bottom half of the map)

Hangar 18,as you fighting on top of parked planes as well,i really enjoyed that one,but might be because i was always doing well in it,unlike another map i could mention(SILO!!)

and Drive in was a good map,it's funny because some of the parts of Drive in map,reminds me of Firing Range(where the cubical/prefab is or where the empty space is at the end of the map where people usually get their drops,dropped,the checkpoint that you can go past i think)..it kinda makes me feel that the same space has been used and some buildings rearranged

as for Escalation pack,that included Convoy map which i loved,Hotel was okay,i liked that better as i played it more and same with Zoo,Stockpile was probably the worse of the maps IMO in that pack

I think Escalation is probably the best map pack ever as I love all four of those maps.

Guess I'll report back tonight!

The new maps are good.  I'll be the ass that says if you're falling off the cliff, you're doing it wrong slywink

Silo is a good map, tons of crossing sightlines.  Forcing you to play careful and be sure when you move.  Being oblivious will get you killed quickly.  Slightly reminiscent of Chinatown in concept.

Hazard could be better.  It's the same layout as Cliffside which is one of my favorites, but they removed all the foliage so it's sterile.  It's a bit too easy to see people compared to the original.

Drive in is what they promised.  Slightly bigger than Nuketown but just as crazy.

Hanger 18 is what Launch could have been.  Very well laid out with lots of tight rooms AND long sightlines.

Not sure why new maps always feature an overwhelming amount of camping. You'd think people would want to explore and discover rather than cherry pick people who happen to walk by the random corner they're camped in.

Well last night, every single new map there were corner campers galore. GALORE! I don't mean strategic choke point hold and displace. I mean out of sight line shoot guys as they come by nitwittery.

It was infuriating.

I think that perhaps the amount of camping could be due to people not feeling comfortable with the new maps? My HADD compels me to constantly move around  icon_wink

I can't believe how much Hazard is a copy of Cliff Side. Where is the ingenuity? I liked Cliff Side - but that was 2 years ago......

I think you missed the point, it is cliffside because people wanted cliffside.  They made it look a bit different so it would be more new.  Mw2 had straight up copies in mappacks (of maps people didnt even like too)

Much more even night last night. Played a few rounds with Chi and then hooked up with Romy.  Can give an objective assessment of the new maps now.

Silo is my favorite. Reminds me of scrapyard. Loved that map.  The repetitive missile launch is annoying as crap though.  Also, the tower on the one side that has only one way up and does not provide an easy means of killing campers (or at least I haven't found it yet) seems to be an oversight

Hazard is next, though I can't stand the preponderance of sniping.  Still there are ways to avoid it and I bet the sniping drops off as people learn where they're hiding.  I loved cliffside and so far the reskinning of it is a hit with me

Hangar 18 is third. Don't have a lot of love for this map yet as everyone seems to camp the SR71 building, but I had a good showing on it because people seemed to forget that standing on top of a plane with no cover  is not a good tactic.

Drive Thru is last. So far I hate this map.  The sniper perch behind the screen is just preposterous.  Interesting side approaches though.  I don't get the comparison to Firing Range at all. I'll probably come to like it better, but right now yech!

If I give escalation an A+ for a map pack and First Strike a C-, I'd give this one a B right now with the chance to move up half a letter.

Another night where 8 pm means a latency spike to 500-1000.  A tech is coming out today to tell my friend that there's nothing wrong with the lines, to which he will respond that they either address the guy sucking all my bandwidth all of a sudden every night or they lose a 3+ year customer for their lack of customer service.

Drive Thru I don't get the comparison to Firing Range at all.


not comparisons as in playing but its just the same space,set out differently,you can tell at the checkpoint in Drive in,its the same one(but with no actual check point)in firing range,if you are facing away from that end of the map,to your right is a cubical that you can go through,set in the exact place where one is set in Firing range,with the edge of the map behind this cubical that makes up the right end side of the map(again if facing away from the check point,towards the movie screen)


EDIT;actually no,i just replayed Firing Range and its must smaller than i was remembering it...so er..ignore all that above icon_biggrin

They sent out a rep today.  My friend reported that the issue happened while he was there today, spiking to almost 2 seconds of lag.  They're supposedly sending out a bucket truck within the next 24 hours.  I'll be calling tomorrow after work to follow up and see what progress they are making.

Tactical Mask Pro is truly incredible.  Too bad it takes so long to get.  I can get Ghost Pro, Hardened Pro, Hacker Pro before level 21, but Ghost Pro, Hardened Pro, Tactical Mask Pro takes until 31.

Here's some fun stuff that all happened today:

Sniping and knifing

Quad kill with bullets

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KMzTmo6Io4g

Quad kill without bullets

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P5vA34NtnbY



These did not happen today:

Still having fun with the olympia.

I want to try the perk with the smaller reticle whose name escapes me, but don't want to give up slight of hand. that gun takes a month to reload.


Not digging the scorpion that much, but have had some good rounds with it.

Should probably try some lmgs, but i think they all suck except the stoner...

Now I've been on the receiving end of Shotgun Fury, but never it's propagator.  I ran Olympia almost exclusively yesterday and got more venom throughout the day than I ever have before.

One guy sent me a text message: 'You play like a c***.'   icon_eek

Instead of thinking of something witty I just replied with 'u mad, bro?'

People have also been yelling at me in lobbies.  It's crazy.

And the tomahawk is fun!

Here's Mikagami hacking the game to make walls absorb 99% of the bullets.  It let one get through early just to give me false hope that I could penetrate (sounds like my ex-gf)

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_3DUiHK44uQ

This one got me accused of using an aimbot.  The guy was too dumb to realize that spy planes and blackbirds kind of show you where people are...

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wbZvzQMV1_E

Finally this one was my superhero round where napalm ignores me and my superhuman strength allows me to kill just by throwing a flashbang into them.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_WlpmyN9DIA



Also in my fileshare is a video from someone else that shows 3 tomahawk kills at round start using 2 tomahawks all the way across launch.  It's crazy and well worth watching.

Do clips only show up that have been created after you link the account or will they populate later?
