    Ice vs. Sorokyne

    In my opinion ice is better than sorokyne, but I want to know what y'all think.

    From my experience:

    Ice:

    Pros
    Above ground and underground LZ
    Rounds don't end instantly
    Big map for more diverse combat and story building
    Bar is kinda based
    Dynamic gameplay you can't get on any other map
    Cons:
    Laggy
    Rounds take a while
    Can't use JTAC underground (unless you know the secret)

    Sorokyne:

    Pros:
    Neat weather mechanic
    Icey
    Cons:
    Really laggy
    Rounds take forever
    Beno sided
    Weather mechanic breaks the server

    Ice was stalemate hell were both sides would watch youtube for 2 hours hoping one or the other would sucide into them. It was an ass map and will remain dead.

    Soro was a neat concept, but I really hate the map. It's not just the laggy weather issues, the pathing is terrible and makes combat less engaging.

    Ice sucks too, and you're leaving out a ton of cons. Ladders make no sense, the size makes it so some parts of the map are never used, etc.

    There have been a lot of great suggestions over the years to improve ice that never happened, and the map just got removed. Let it stay dead lol

    Ice was a good map as I've said many, many, many times before.

    Reason why people hate it so much is because they lack the IQ to understand proper flanking and listening to the people in-charge. (Which is like, 5 IQ. Though 90% of the playerbase only has 2....)

    Unpopular opinion: ICE and Sorok are equally as bad, they both make normal players mad. Only benomains enjoy such maps, because massive colonies with slowdown (snow) and temperature mechanics are all stacked up against marines to the point its not funny.

    And marines can't simply flank. Not only benos get notified of any trap being triggered, so it takes brainless burrower/carrier to simply trap every flank and you can't do shit unnoticed, but there is also Queen weed AI vision and beno's thermals while weed and walls and doors slow down marines to a crawl. Flank manouver by marines requires so much effort its not worth it. To coordinate enough ungas with good enough gear to push, instead of all having shitty slugs and buckshot and flamers, its quite random chance, then risk for flank failing means that everyone there is guaranteed permadead at best and at worst gets capped.
    All of this shit to maybe, maybe kill 2 benos and force entire hive to retreat to the next chokepoint. Congratulations, you just put so much effort and risked so much to kill those 2 benos and force hive to retreat to next chokepoint, bravo! Here is your medal, go and celebrate how much you achieved thanks to your big brain, oh wait... One unga murderball just formed and pushed to the hive, killed all of the T3s and most T2s, oh no, now they also failed, horrible, they had to slowly retreat while dragging dead and wounded to the cades, just wait few minutes and most of the marines will be alive and combat-capable, thank god they didn't try to flank, otherwise it would be a guaranteed lose.

    Making a map for "flanks" but then still leaving marines ability to flank in this sorry state is a mistake.

    Ice is nice and trying to compare the two is heresy.
