Hello,

on many of our great servers is a shitty map known as Pandora Swamp, otherwise known as the Butthole of Satan. It has horrible weapons, glitchy vehicles, ugly character sprites, it is laggy, it is dark, the map design is disgusting, and the gametypes are boring. Every time a Pandora Swamp game begins, Kirill exits the server for a half hour.

I would like to get the opinions of my fellow Realworld Guild Members in order to see how many share my distaste. If an overwhelming majority agrees, I believe it would be in the best interest of the guild to remove this map from the cycles in order to facilitate more enjoyable gameplay.

I quite like Pandora Swamp - and variety IS the spice of life. Imagine a life where all you did all the time was exactly the same thing. Bleeuugghh! :sleep: :registered:

Removing one map does not mean there won't be variety in the server; there will still be a lot of other maps left. The platitude "variety is the spice of life" doesn't really apply here. Even in a universe where there is only Blood Gulch and Pandora Swamp, I would rather play Blood Gulch over and over again. Variety is good if the various things have good quality, but I don't like playing shitty maps just for the sake of "variety".

Perfectly good reason to keep the map in :xD:

More seriously though..

Weapons - there are multiple weapon types scattered across the map from pistols, sniper rifles, shotguns right through to rocket launchers, some of which are non-classic variants and are expected to behave a little differently. The starting loadout might not be to your liking, but your are playing as a brute.

Vehicles - I haven't experienced any more lag than one would experience in any other -hectic-multiplayer map. Multiplayer being the operative word there.

Ambience - Yes, it is dark. It's night time, in a swamp.

Ugly - No. Different - Yes.

I used to hate this map, but it has grown on me.

And if it makes Kirill go away for a while, all the better.

As for the statements made about it's faults:

It's laggy - no, it's not - your video card sucks most likely.

Glitchy vehicles - ??? It has ghosts, hogs, and brute choppers. The Brute choppers are a little weird in ANY map they are included in. Not a reason to get rid of only Pandora Swamp if the Brute Choppers are so bad.

The map design is disgusting - not sure what to say to this. There are worse maps than Pandora Swamp in terms of design, but disgusting? Eye of the beholder.

The gametypes are boring - there's KOTH, Team Slayer, and Oddball (Juggernaut?) mixed among the servers. Not sure if all three are all in RW, or HW, but all three are used across those two servers.

I can think of other maps that should be removed before Pandora Swamp, but if anyone wants to rename it "Kirill Repellent" that's fine with me :twisted:

If any map should be removed, it should be that hog map with the C4 spam.
