Top and Bottom 5 Favorite V5A Vanilla Maps [Close'd]
« on: May 01, 2017, 07:57:22 PM »
For my sick and morbid curiosity, I'd like to know folks' top and bottom 5 favorite deathmatch vanilla maps.

Why? It may not point out the "best" made map in vanilla, but it really helps to find "popular picks" and might show correlation with certain design choices with their popularity.


While ya pick yar tops and bottoms, ya don't need to order yar choices or need to explain why for simplicity's sake. I also encourage ya to try and consider the map with weapon, item, and health layouts but when ya choose yar maps it's ultimately base'd on yar own criteria.


IMPORTANT RULE: This is all folks' OPINION. Do NOT under any circumstance attack anyone for their choices of their top and bottom 5 favorites. Also, keep the discussions clean too.


I will eventually tally the results, so please try to fill yar picks with 5 choices.
Thanks and have fun!



My Tops:
MM2DW1
MM5DAR
MM8SWO
MM8SEA
MM8DW1

My Bots:
MM2BUB
MM2CRA
MM4DIV
MM5WAV
MMWTMWS

THE BEST:

MM5DAR
MMBBUR
MM8SWO
MM5GRA
MM6MRX

The not so best:

MM2BUB (mainly because of random corners that kill you)
MM9GAL (I hate the weapon layout)
MM5GYR (MY EYES)
MM9SPL (boring layout and weird texture usage)
MM1DW2 (boring map in general)

Best 5:
- MM2FLA
- MM3MAG
- MM5STO
- MM6PLA
- MMWTHSH

Worst 5:
- MM1ICE
- MM2CRA
- MM4PHA
- MM6WIN
- MM8CLO

Runner Ups (I will note that these are not necessarily bad or in need of overhauls but I do strongly feel that they could be better.)
- MM3TOP
- MM4DRI
- MM4TOA
- MM5STA
- MMBBUR
- MMWTBRG
- MM9SPL

I don't have much else to list off. Wave, Gyro and Magic are changed so I don't want to put that down.

Top:

1-MMBGRO (a lot of rooms and floors, I like it)
2-MM5CHA (I liked a lot the sensation of being in a running train, though you could make each wagon bigger and make more wagons, so you won't see these wagons with wood a lot of times)
3-MM8DUO (Idk why, but I think Duo's map is very good)
4-MM5STA (The physics thing, the floors, I love it)
5-MM7JUN (I LOVED the lava mechanics)

Bottom:

1-MMBCOL (There could be a better representation of the MMB's stage, but since this isn't enough, I can say that if the map was bigger, it would be funnier to play there.)
2-MMBMUS (V4's was so much better in my opnion, even an "empty room" can be funny sometimes)
3-MM3DW1 (A enormous pain to win in campaign mode, and some places are simply very very small,this along with Gemini Laser makes this map a hell. The same applies to MM2CRA, except there isn't a Gemini Laser)
4-MM4DUS (We need less Crushing things)
5-MM6TOM (This stage is simply too small, not just its rooms, unlike in MM3DW3, the problem here is that the whole map is small)


Be aware that sometimes the map isn't just the problem, but the weapons in it. Examples of maps with bad weapons (in my opnion):MM3TOP,MM4BRI,MM4DUS, MM6TOM. (the latter 2 have both bad maps and bad chosen weapons in my opnion)

GOOD:
5. MM7SHA - Memes, also the Easter Egg.
4. MM6MRX - Quite open, fun to play around in.
3. MM5DAR - Fun to play on.
2. MMWTBRG - Used to be my map for testing.
1. MM9CON - Great map for testing stuff.

BAD:
Honorable Mention 3. MM4RIN - Light eyesore, not sure how to fix.
Honorable Mention 2. MM3TOP - Too many Exit Units, making it difficult to catch anybody.
Honorable Mention 1. MM2QUI - Why is Time Stopper easy to get here?
5. MMBDW1 - Texture soup, reduce the amount used.
4. MM1ICE - Not much I can say, but it's not very interesting... not sure what can be done with it.
3. MM5STA - Plain, outside really has nothing going for it.
2. MM4PHA - Usually hard to navigate, doesn't help it's pretty symmetrical.
1. MM2CRA - Everything is wrong with this map, the layout is bad (causes a lot of chokeholds), and it's an eyesore to look at.
