Would you sign a petition to bring back the old index map?

Recommended Posts

I am not saying remove the new map, although I would very much like that. But atleast getting the old map back would be great. I understand that, it may not be possible to get the exact map back because of tileset change, but I am sure they can recreate it with similar structure. 

I want to start a petition requesting DE to do so. Wanted to weight how you all feel about it. 

Thanks.

I would sign it. And it might very well be possible to bring back the old map as is despite the tileset change because if you do Nidus' quest even now, you still get the old index map on it. So it still exists in the files I believe.

No, the indoor map was removed and replaced with a poorly lit dark version, I like the large outside one it's awesome.

I'd sign.

The trouble I have with the new indoor one by the time my graphics change from light to dark when moving through the map is painful and if you are running towards a certain window then it's that glary you are blinded at best the map need better lighting to even it out sort of.

Don't know why DE wanted to take away a map. That's just stupid. They could have just added the new crap one.

I'll sign.

I'd like that old map back too. The new one is too large and too dark as many have pointed out. If DE didn't like afk umbras, they could have removed the popular sniping spots instead of the whole map. 

I'd support removal of the new map too, if that's an option.

The first thing both my wife and myself said when noticing they removed one of the former maps on the indexing was exactly that.

Add a map, sure. But replacing it means removing one of the former ones. Now I'm no fan of the newest map on the index, to many corners to get stuck in. On top of that there are some places where you can fall of the map although there's no clear indication that you can.

Yes 100% sign. Mainly because that map really felt like a gameshow map, a proper arena. The new one is horrid and a lot easier to spam. I understand the visual issues others have too, I generally play the index using the mini-map, largely ignoring the actual render.

But that original indoor map was awesome. Really felt like you were taking part in an event, almost Splatoon style. They should probably create another couple maps in that vein too.

The new map is awful.  It's big with impractical side halls that enemies way too often hide out in making you waste time trying to find them instead of actually killing.  There's no open areas at all, forcing you into close quarters for any kind of LoS.  And the goals are horribly placed.  Without a Limbo you're basically guaranteed to lose the day trader nightwave to some spawn out of nowhere that found a stray credit (which also end up in some really awkward locations when they drop on that map)

Seriously i can't see a thing on that map. And it is too big for 4vs4. Most of the time you spend running. And orbs stuck in the wall impossible to pick. And there are too many walls in general. Double pain considering the old map was very dynamic and actually pulled off vertical map layout correctly. Who the hell designed that thing, and why was there a need to introduce this map noone asked for?

Just putting my two cents in to say I hate the new map. Not enough spawns for solo play. Always win but way harder to get to the payoff number.

The worst part is it actually still exist in the game. I finally forced myself to finish Glast Gambit yesterday and it uses the old map.
