This.

That's why I don't like it. Provides a lot of advantage for those who are on top.

I only like it in interrogation. And the players that say there are no glitchy spots in downtown obviously haven't played it enough.

I can't see anything in Downtown. It's even worse than High School.

Luckily, everyone avoids it.

To be fair though both teams start off on even ground, and it becomes a race to get supplies before leaving yourself vulnerable. It just requires a lot more work and planning than the other maps do, the Dam can be very similar in the river section but learning to use the elevations to your advantage is fun.

Got no problem with the elevations but since I don't snipe, fighting on the hill is annoying shiving on the hill melee on the hill both very annoying . Obviously I try not to give the higher ground to opponents.

It's okay to not like every map lol . If I sniped I'm sure of would appeal to me more. Agreed in interrogation mode its kinda cool.

I like Downtown, but in matchmaking everyone votes against it. Rarely do I get a chance to play it.

The most downs I got so far was 13, was in Downtown, using the Flamethrower of course and I feel I suck at this game compared to most.

It's interesting that most (not all though) more advanced players actually like the map. It is never played nonetheless.

 

I think it has everything: Wide spaces with less cover, elevation for sniper positions, close corner, buildings, great flanking opportunities. It is a challenging map though, because it is quite dark as well and you have to prepare for so many different combat situations. And as it is almost never played, a lot of people are not used to it and know the "usual ways to go".

 

It's not my favorite, but I vote it whenever I see it pop up - even only too see everyone panicking and voting for the other map :smileyhappy:

I just hate a whole team full of snipers. Which means that this is only my seond most hated map because of Lakeside.
