    Both are good maps. I have enjoyed them so far. I do hope, though, that with the release of the next Chapter upon us you guys consider making BG's base game to encourage more participation. More customization with the game modes and team sizes would be grand as well. :)

    I agree, make them base game. What else has Mr. Wheeler been up to?

    These mobility maps are great... Unless your a templar! Brian we need a game mode where you sit in your house the entire game and just defend... Like King of the Hill, that would be epic for Templars skillset!

    The BG are quite awesome but the level difference is huge. Im an ok pvp players used to solo or small scale and yet i sinply get crushed big time by some better groups. I can learn from them but facing guys who are winning all their bg in a row is not so fun

    A ranking system is required to bring bgs to the next level. Today this is just the occasional fun.

    I like the maps as a whole, but I am really not a fan of Capture the Relic on Mon Kazgur. The approaches to the relics feel just a tad too limited, and it ends up feeling like the middle of the map doesn't exist.

    Wouldn't be surprised if they stay quiet about it until PAX in early April, honestly... Hype control. Not have a big, epic reveal 3-4 months from its launch as not to have hype have died down too drastically by the time it is actually being released.

    Waiting sucketh, but I kinda expect a wait around 6 weeks longer... >_>

    yes, ZOS likes to hype us pretty much, I guess they will release some basic info in end of Feb, something like "Summerset will be the next chapter", but nothing more....then mid-March they will release one short trailer and more info at end of March or so..

    Mostly because CP is more solo friendly whereas nCP tends to be more group oriented to soften the imbalances of playing in a game mode that has most of the stats placed in the CP system.

    Good things: nice map with a lot of movement possibilities. Blizzard effect makes it even more funnier. And tho without working map it was funnier.

    Bad Things: you can bypass blizzard vision penalty by healtbar toggle option and still be able to see as far as it possible. Another bad thing is it have many small places where you can simply hide. For example you can pick Chaosball and jump to water, swim behind corner and just swim there while healer with rest of team will stack on top and spam heals; with it any melee enemy wont be able to do anything till chaosball debuff and ranged opponents will hit harder than healers. And people happily abusing it.

    Deeping Drome:
    Good things: example of perfect map. As other map it allow large amount of movements. It has many places of los with different altitude but not entire walls that would allow enemy to hide behind it and wait to counterattack. LoSing on this map mostly mean for retreat and use it means decrease pressure on opponent. Match of Capture Relic is best type there coz on this map spawns are perfectly located: relic is not right below respawn and this allow for enemy to take relic if they won fight fight over it, without allowing to respawned enemy immediately join fight after respawn; also it prevent abusing safe zone for respawned opponents by simply stand in there and shoot at you or heal teammates without being afraid to participate in combat. Area infront of relics if flat with small los parts far from it that means that using LoS might result in loose of relic or inability to steal it; also allow to jump on lower altitude but that means same - reduce pressure. Area behind relics not exist and it means enemy cant simply sprinting around relics, losing everytime he is attacked and wait till no one look on him to steal relic, but he forced to jump of and run around to get back.

    Bad things: crashes, disconnects and long load screens happen o this map for some reason more oftenly. That's only bad thing in this map.
