I like the maps for the most part. Adrift is a flop but the others play decent. I’m not really a big fan of the fact that we have to wait for another month into December to see new maps in the rotation. For more hardcore players and people that enjoying playing the first few weeks non-stop it’s a big let down. Recycling the same maps over and over even though you’ve had all the DLC ready pre-launch(speculation since they had concept art and names for them already months ago).
I know it’s ideally for profit and that’s fine, but bring some player made maps into the matchmaking. Cycle in one or two of them every week with your playlist updates…? Separate playlist for them? Group Oddball, CTF, and King in objective playlist quickly as well.
I can’t speak for your problems, but I’ve enjoyed playing on all the maps so far. The only one I have yet to play in matchmaking is Meltdown. None of them feel terrible, though Adrift and Abandon are a bit cluttered. Haven may be popular for Infinity slayer because it’s the smallest, most frenzied and Ragnorok for BTB because its a remake, but I’ve not experienced overexposure. And with nine new maps coming fast we’ll have plenty of variety.
> Oh yeah, go play Infinity slayer and let me know how many maps you play. Thanks for trying though…uhhhh
> At least Reach had maps that were enjoyable over and over. It’s just so bland with so few maps to play.
That’s why I said: "THE PLAYLISTS ARE HORRIBLE, BLAME IT ON THEM"

> > Ya I agree. Big team slayer is all I play and their is only a handful of maps and 75 percent of the time you just end up playing on Ragnarok anyways.

i disagree, considering you couldn’t vote or veto in halo 2 you were stuck with what you got. also out of all the halos halo 2 had the best variety of maps and game types imo.
more on topic, i agree there is a serious lack of maps, and i think most of them are extremely boring to play on and not very well thought out. hopefully the map packs come soon and with better designs.
I agree completely. I love this game but Infinity Slayer only has 5 maps in the rotation and I despise Solace. Abandon is an average map along with adrift. Complex is a good map and Haven is a instant classic but seriously playing the same 3-4 maps over and over is getting extremely boring. I do switch it up and play some BTB but as someone mentioned above me Ragnarok gets selected 75% of the time. I absolutely hate Vortex so that gives me 4 BTB maps I enjoy playing in that playlist.
I purchased BLOPS 2 today for a change of pace so I don’t tire of Halo 4 so quickly and it ships with 14 maps. 343 please fix the map rotation so that map that was just played does not come up for vote the next time and lets get this DLC rolling. If Halo shipped with more maps it would be the definitive FPS but its pretty sad how few maps Halo ships with these days.
