  • Why don't you like Piranesi?

    Not that i needed any confirmation, but Tempus' favourite map thread points out once more, how much people in general really don't rate Piranesi.

    i am at a total loss as to why no one likes it.

    It's such an underrated map. You've got numerous routes to both A and B, as T. You've got lots of choices of where to guard as CT. You've got at least 3 very different height levels. You've got lots of choice of possible contact points both indoors and outdoors, and not only that, it's also a very beautifully made map.

    Am i the only sane one here? :p

    Sometimes i wonder if it's just because it's got a rubbish name. i bet if it was called de_panther or some such cool name people wouldn't be quite so anti it!

    If anyone would like to tell me why they really don't like it - and not just 'it's sh*t!' - i'd be very interested.

    Piranesi is very hard on the CTs, but I still like it.

      I like it.
      There's really no map I don't like.
      That thread is about a single favorite and we're all trying to rank our top 3, 4, or 5. :)

          My favorite CT map by far.

            I very much like it.

            3) Support game play in a near-simulation environment. Where the focus of play would not be solely on doing what it takes to win, but doing so utilizing real-world combat strategy and tactics rather than leveraging exploits provided to players by the design of the game engine.

                We like them all, trust me, if one of them wasn't good it would be gone already.

                I personally like Prodigy. But, I think it needs another route for the T's to get into the ducts or something along those lines.

                      I have to say my favorite map is Piranesi. But you have to remember that ''favorite map'' and ''map I get most kills on'' have two different meanings.....

                        Agreed. The multiple paths to each bombsite allow for a myriad of tactics. Unlike, say, Aztec or Office, where there's really only two or three ways to go...

                        I like Prodigy and Nuke for the same reasons...

                        I can't wait for Rio, Museum and Roadhouse to be ported over to Source...

                          9v, you bring up many good points. Me, personally, I would play it more if it were called de_panther ;)
                          We are the music makers,
                          and we are the dreamers of the dream.
                          Wandering by lone sea breakers,
                          and sitting by desolate streams.
                          World losers and world forsakers,
                          for whom the pale moon gleams.
                          Yet we are movers and the shakers of the world forever it seems.

                            Putting in a positive vote for this map. I love it to pieces.
