    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?

    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.

    Re: Why don't you like Piranesi?

    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.

    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.

    Re: Why don't you like Piranesi?

    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

    Putting in a positive vote for this map. I love it to pieces.
    Please allow me to adjust my pants
    So that I may dance the Good Time Dance
    And put the onlookers and innocent bystanders into a trance
