    Kill Ice Now

    Ice is an arachic map made for long ago. It a map of stalemates and suiciding your whole force to prevent mass suicide on the ladders, or even more fun it results in a meta of rushing LZ2.

    The biggest issue is this map was not built for the current design of how maps should be, or in other words telecommunications is the problem. With the deployable telecomm it made LZ1 and 2 viable but worse it made telecommunications on Ice pointless. Now look where it is, it is far from the LZ, but it was made like that with an purpose. You can not easily mega-fob on LZ1 as you can get cut off from telecomm and this back and forth would prevent stalemate hell, and LZ2 was just a mega-elevator drop effectively as there was no telecomm there so was more dangerous to deploy there and all. Since LZ1 is hell to assault aliens do not want to attack knowing it will be suicide against the full marine force and marines obviously dont want to go down because that is death.

    Just remove this stalemate hell map it just too old for the current meta.

    Triiodine has stated that ice will be taken out behind the shack. It will be shot quietly and discretely.

    However he is "working on open source" right now.

    How on earth is "open source" taking so damn long by the way?
    Big signatures are annoying, that's why I have disabled viewing signatures.

    Actually I want to kill LV also, or rather change it. Instead of a beach and cave you get an expansive jungle that marines have to attack/firebomb to hell. Literally make LV space nam. Also trijent fix that stupidly open space south of the labs that make it hell for aliens to survive/hold if marines push pass the locks.

    Really a major issue is aliens cant fight out in the open without dying in droves and maps need to reflect this issue.

    I personally love ice, however the elevators and stairs parts are just giant deathtraps for either side. CAS, Mortars, and OBs are basically useless unless marines are at LZ1 and xenos are in the final stages of attacking the FOB.

    Splitting Ice into 2 maps sounds smart though. +1
