Have you played Prelude - Fort?
Even begging them to add the other maps to the rotation on arena is out of the question because of "design" problems. Adding new maps would be great, but working with the ones already on the competitive rotation should atleast be tried.
It's like the whole "Wetsuit Elena". They say it's hard, time consuming, etc. but I bet, that if ND would ask programers from this forums to do it, they'd probably do it... maybe even for free, just give them the tools.
In other words, "when there is a will, there is a way"... unless you are ND, which their quote might be "striving to be the best, but we just don't want to" or "we hear ya', but it's just not worth the time and effort".
@sand Eddy's also a pirate. It could be argued that Eddy pretty much killed his own pirates in Fort - Prelude, because Ramses doesn't even know the place.
Well it is pretty obvious that nothing in the Adventure mode is canon...for one Laz, Flynn and Eddy are alive.
We know how Eddy's pirates look from UC1 and we know how Ramses' pirates look as well, and these are obviously his pirates. Eddy even exclaims to them in the chapter "you are sh**y pirates" most likely because they are nothing like his own.
