I don't trust a poll where Sharpton is voted as the best map, seems like British propaganda to me.
> "I don't agree with the vote."
> Therefore the poll is rigged. lol
I did do that actually, and out of the 24 results that appeared on Arendan River, I counted 4 people who were explicitly against it, two of which being you and Jean. As for Dutch Canals, it seems to have been almost exclusively you who've voiced a distaste for it. I don't think that's enough people to "get a feel for how people feel about the aforementioned maps."
If you can convince me that it is mechanically fair
for the central fortification of any map to inherently be closer
to one spawn (and hence, faction, in the current version of the game) - I'll retract every bad thing I've ever said about DC. It's not like it's a blatant distaste; there's a solid reason behind my opinion there. I enjoy
the thought of fighting in the swamps, the canals and the fields - but 85% of the map is ignored because people run to the middle - and the French will always
get there first.*and yes, I also don't enjoy Sharpton or Fort Christinia's inherent advantages to the British either - for the record.
You, of course, wouldn't know, since you exclusively play French and have no trouble garrisoning every time this map comes around. Try it on British for once and see how you like it.
I didn't mean to come across as accusatory, but it seems only natural to me that the opinion of the biggest regiment leader will have an implicit impact on how his followers feel about a certain topic, especially if that leader makes his opinion frequently known on that topic - even more so when he embodies that opinion through actions by AFKing in spawn on Arendan, affecting the gameplay of the regiment. You are after all a pillar of the community, whether you like it or not.
Are you under the impression that I'm just going to blanket enjoy every single map in the game because I'm a "Pillar of the community"
That I'm gonna' perform my usual schtick on maps that I just don't enjoy playing? Think again, I'm afraid.
affecting the gameplay of the regiment
If you ever see the entirety of the KRA go AFK because I go AFK, on any map, I'd love to see a screenshot. It's a casual gaming community; not a cult, lots of my guys (specifically those in the Rifle Company, Skirmishers) enjoy Arendan and often top the leaderboard - but I don't have to
like the map just because people expect it of me, sorry.
