View Full Version : DIE 2chickenblenders
07-30-2002, 07:26 PM
So this map is very poorly put together and inevitably turns into at least one team hiding their flag carrier in the spawn room (hard to get) or the redeemer room (nearly impossible to get at). Does anyone actually like this map? And I don't mean for spawn-sniping, as that seems to be the only fun thing to do on the map.
Can we pleeease take it out of rotation and vote..forever?
And what does everyone else think?

I am strongly against ALL ghandi maps except DiePiggyPiggy][ (though it is starting to get old) :)

Yeah I don't like 2 chicken blenders either. It's a funny concept, but it's not even slightly fun. Between the god aweful cramped-in spawn room with constant ripper spam and spawn killing, to the deemer room that takes forever to get into and which people use as a hideout, it's just annoying as hell to play.

I like it. It gets a little tricky when it comes to hunting the EFC, but what's wrong with that?

Nobody's dissing ghandi..just this particular creation. He has plenty other maps that are fun but haven't gotten as much attention as this (undeserved) one.
What's wrong with it? Well I'm glad you asked!
a)spawn areas; there is only one in each base and spawn-sniping routinely takes place. It's the only way I can have fun on the map.. Even if one team isn't spawn-sniping, chances are someone will stay behind on a flag run to keep taking out the spawners so they cannot hunt down the flag carrier.
b)If a flag carrier decides to hide in a spawn area, the only way to take him/her out (really) is with a telefrag. Today I went in with a redeemer more than a few times, got a monster kill and the FC had the flag again WITH spawn protection before I could get in. Go in with anything else and you get ripped up by the three guys spamming rippers.
c)If a flag carrier decides to hide in the redeemer room, it takes a TEAM effort to get him/her out. It takes so long for the two doors to open, and you have to be in the middle of them to trigger the 2nd, that it's very easy for opposing players to run in and spam a little flak and take you out while you're trying to just get in to have a go at the EFC (who by now has the keg, jump boots, and at least one redeemer waiting for you).
d)the general layout sucks; routes on either side leave players to be (most likely) cut down by ripper spam. central routes revolve around a bridge over nothingness. there's no room to maneuver and so you just have to hope you don't get hit or dodge off the edge.
Maybe this map is fun if you're the kind of person who likes to run around and spam ripper blades and get lucky off of headshots on people who didn't see it coming or couldn't dodge it. But it just encourages the worst elements of CTF (spawnkilling, hiding with the flag carrier rather than hunting down one's flag, spam defense). Other maps may suffer from some of these problems, but they don't suffer from ALL and have a bad layout to boot.
I'd rather play 2bigboxesfilledwithlava than this. It's been in the system for far too long..

I wasn't trying to diss zencoder/ghandi, I give him props for doing different things and trying new unique ideas. I just really dislike most of his maps.

I'm not a fan but the ironic thing is I've had some of the most humorous bouts in the Blender. Not necessarily the best games strategically speaking, but fun.

I want my chicken blenders. What we dod need to do is limit the number of the low-gravity maps in the rotation at one time. I don't mind a low-grav map every now and then to break up the sequence, but 6 in a row is bad news. It doesn't happen every week but when it does, look out.
