I would make a lava map. It would have a volcano in the center that would explode every 10 minutes. The map would be flooded with lava, blocking some paths, and creating a no fly zone (too much ash, it would damage the hawk) over the volcano. After a few minutes it would return back to normal.
I would have also made a map that is made up of two floating cities (one city for each team) and at points of the map there would be control panels that could control bridges in-between the two cities.
Also another space map. In the middle of the map there would be a contol room. A button in the room would contol the gravity of the map. Lol imagine Rifters and outcasts floating around.
Or maybe a map with a indestructible giant vehicle in it that drives around automatically. You team can hack and control it.
Have any other ideas?
I like these suggestions a lot. Especially the one you mentioned about the Ash, forcing Hawks to go into Mech mode giving the ground troopers some time to build up a defense and gain a little more area of the map rather then just being completely dominated endlessly.
It makes me so mad when i think about it, All my favourite games that i consider to be uniquely different from others get cut early and have little dlc. Very annoying.
For gatekeeper, the Score gate should be placed RIGHT above the Valcano. So if it is erupting, the game turns into a TDM where both teams have to protect the ball for a certain amount of time. Giving both sides a chance to change the tides of the game.It would have to erupt more frequently in GK so its more interesting
And if this did exist, it would have to be at night so the fire stand out.
A Giant tank. The size of Relay. You battle on top of, and inside the tank as it roles around a map area the size of basin. You can take contol of it, or destroy it.
