    I'm looking forward to Missile Urbie. Don't care so much about Griffin and Kit Fox.

    I'm really hoping the new map is good. It's desperately needed.

    Yes! I'm also very excited for the new map, though I am really hoping for more arena-style maps and matches/modes to be released. 'Realistic' maps often only provide one or 2 optimal routes per side, resulting in nascar or hidey/pokey strats. The 'big military commander man' voices are pretty shitty anyway.

    I'd love for a map with like 4 levels of verticality to make JJs more important, or a map which is essentially open except for small pillars to hide behind, to make indirect and direct fire somewhat equally effective.

    Missile urbie will be SWEET. Griffin is a bit meh with the ballistic arm. Kitfox with missile shoulder hardpoints will be fun I think. Linebacker has disappointingly low hardpoints on the jumpjet side torsos, compared to the Linebacker B variant for example. But I guess it's understandable due to the jets.

    40 LRMs are probably a bit too heavy, but murms, surms and maybe a single LRM20+A for the weirdo will be popular :)

    I'm already planning to try out a troll build with XL180, LRMs, tag and a lot of bad attitude by exploiting the 360° torso yaw :D

    Loving the new map btw!

    Lots of openness and verticality, making jumpjets and arm weapons very valuable, and making it less hidey/safe than Canyon Network or HPG! It also helps that each game feels different because no one knows what to do ;p

    That's the best part about a new map, when everyone is still learning it and the "right" way to play it doesn't happen every time.
