London Underground fixes, wall it up (50+ kudos keep up the support)

[ Edited ]

So I did some tests to see some things about London Underground today. Out of about 12 matches I saw it 5 times. These were the votes: 

 

LU vs Brass city 7:2 

LU vs Air Strip 7:1

LU vs Desert city 5:2 

LU vs Brass city 6:4

Lu vs Highrise 8:1 

 

While I do believe the map system needs fixing, the players are also a issue and are causing endless matches of London Underground. Why do people pick this map? Why to camp of course and it's all because of one poor map design by ND. Here's my idea to fix it. 

 

What we have right now: 

old hole.jpg

 

What would end the camping: 

new hole.jpg

 

As you can see, by my very poorly drawn pictures. What we currently have is a very large space were people can camp and hold down easily because there is only 2 ways in(one way in if you all the way in the back). This can make it very hard and sometimes impossible to remove a team from this room, grenades really begin your own option. 

 

Putting the wall there would end all camping in that area. 

 

9-9-12

 

answer from Fakehound's question during Naughty Paws 

 

Afterwards we talked about London Underground and the meddlesome tunnel dead end, after quite a bit of talking he said he would look into trying to replace the gate to next to the chest or possibly placing boxes there, however this isn't something they can do in a live update since it requires testing and they would have to redownload the map into the multiplayer. So if it does happen, it will be in a patch.

 

were getting closer 

 

11-2 

 

A lot of people have suggted that a random event that runs through the tunnel killing everyone. While this would reduce camping it would not work. For the following reasons. 

 

1. I could be running through there and just randomly get killed because of this event(much like the wooden structure on Airstrip. 

2. People could just crawl back in there after the event 

3. It would require to much time and work on ND's end

Removing the treasure chest up there would also deter camping. 

 

Sadly, I think the most ND will do is change the map rotation so it doesn't show up as often. :smileysad:

Seems like a good solution, but I doubt they will edit the map that way.

I believe I recommended the same thing back when Cog was posting in that one "most hated map thread" but another fun option is just shove the train up that whole tunnel! >:-D

 

Seriously though it should be an easy fix. They added the pile of cars to Plaza in a snap, so I think moving the gate from where it is in the curve, to right where the climbing opening is would be fairly quick for them.

I would pay good money to have another version of LU where the trains went randomly off-track.

I remember I always wanted the helicopter to crash in Yemen

People were glitching through the walls so they fixed it by adding a pile of cars.

My Mega Bomb would like to have a word with the campers in the cave.

All that said, fix matchmaking before anything else.

I would absolutely LOVE if ND did this, I imagine they could if this thread got enough support.
