So what happens to the dozens of people complaining about new DOTF not making sense? CW was removed and people were miffed, but everyone rolled with it. The redesign is gorgeous, no one denies that, but it's disfunctional and uncomfortable to play. Gen ended up somehow seemingly downgraded in design quality and the throne obj is broken. How the hell can Rebs still capture the obj with Imps inside the area of effect? That's the first time I've seen that happening in that kind of game mode. Do I even have to comment on the huge starship right in the middle of Hang? And yeah, I know it was in the movie, but it was definitely not that huge. Then you take away the balcony, arguably one of the most entertaining areas to play. Like I said, the new mapping is just awkward, and I really don't think people will ever be satisfied with anything other than old, classic DOTF because that's what they've known for years.Do you like new DOTF?
I've written why several times, but there is the very long version.
Basically if I am competing with play time for the map, I run into the same problem with beta tests. I don't have enough people, and enough play time to get enough opinion and non-biased feelings about the map. Everyone is always going to prefer something they are familiar with over something new, even if that something new could be better. Especially if that something is ingrained in their head for 10 years. I am trying to work on the map as much as possible to improve it before I leave the team again. I cannot do that if everyone just goes back to playing the same old same old again. And like I said there, DOTF is not coming back for minimum 4 months after major changes are done to this version of DOTF. Which happened with this patch and reset the timer again. And there will be at least one more patch with major changes to the side routes yet again in the future. You can live with it, and help contribute to development for a bit, and give me feedback rather than just saying give old map pls thx. If people just tell me to bring the old one back, and don't tell me why they dislike the new one (like you just did), I gain nothing, you gain nothing, and movie battles gains nothing.
Move forward not backward.
And DOTF isn't even the only problem. You made a gorgeous, fun to play map with Stark Base, and then you go ahead and add damage the further you head onto the bridge. What's the point of the bridge even existing if people can't duel or play on it. I highly doubt timewasters would even be succesful on it.
My point still stands. If this is a mod made by the players for the players, how come 90% of the community never gets what it wants? I understand your enthusiasm with wanting to show off your work, but you also have to understand that sometimes people just won't like it. Forcing me to play on maps I just don't enjoy won't make me eventually like them, it will eventually make me stop playing altogether. It just seems that there's this type of logic in the dev's minds that this should be a mod that they should enjoy playing, when in fact, according to everything you're making this mod out to be, it should be something enjoyed by everyone.
Change isn't always progress.
