    So it looks like the most liked maps are usually the most simple ones

    imo there's too much camping and op spots on that map. It's a very lovely-looking map, but the big tree creates way too much camping. When I created my tier list, I also ranked lower the maps that take the longest to beat on average. Considering if you are playing on Cliff for 5 minutes trying to get the remaining camping humans, it gets kinda boring. Hence, it's better to have maps that don't have such big camping spots to ensure there is a last-man-standing winner each round.

    If anyone didn't know, Marcawn (Marcawk) was the original creator of the Airforce map, have gotten more better in map making.

    Depressing to see the map in C or D.

    Unpopular opinion: winter's trees are too campy and it lowers its rank on my tier list.

    I feel like this happened for the majority of the new maps. It seems like no one really knew how to capture the original style of the 2013 & a select few of the 2016 maps. It was pretty disappointing to see my map in B and C but I have to agree.

    I partly agree with that take and it's an easy fix.
    Interesting choices!

    I can't remember what map you made but I think it was tropics? Anyways that map was in C for me not because of the quality of the build or anything because with infection build quality takes back seat. The main reason it is C in my list is because of that giant jungle tree in the middle being campy. Change that and it shoots up to A because it is a small map.

    Too lazy to make my own tier list so I'll just say this.
    There has to be a balance between the size of the map, time of the round, amount of players, and the prestige level of the zombies playing.
    I love maps like cave biomes desert nether nuke temple mineshaft(i like a lot of the old maps if you couldn't tell), I wouldn't say that I absolutely "hate" Cherokee it's just that it feels too big for the timer and when there are little players playing.
    Some maps are too "campy" but that gets countered when a high prestige is there and some maps are very fast-paced which is awesome. (sidenote, nethers quite good now with that extra ladder thingy, it used to just be titans and gods camping mid-floor but nonetheless, it was fun to try to break that "defense" of sorts which gave zombies a sense of accomplishment)
    I haven't played some of these maps in months so my memory is a little foggy, I'd like to say that there are maps that are more "early game" orientated when everyone's prestige is low, and maps that are more "late game" orientated when there's a good amount of p7+.
    As of now, I'm not sure if the prestige system will be reworked from the old p1-p10 but I hope it doesn't get changed too much as there's already been a "slight" nerf to zombie bows and eggs, if ykyk.
    pm me on disc if you wna have a chat about it( Nope#7485).

    Agree with everything in S and A but my personal preference is that 1688 and metro is B dragonland is C, I hope I'm remembering the right maps, mountainview(I'm assuming its the one with well a mountain and that pile of glass near spawn with an underground area thing) is quite decent I'd give it a B as well. Cliff deserves the D with how campy it is especially with the main big tree and the top tree. Too lazy to comment on the rest but I'm fine with most maps given how much I've played them

    I noticed that too which is why I've been working on a 'remake' of the map recently on creative. Will show once it's done but it's definitely not having any camper trees anymore.
    Yep, which is why everyone likes the smaller maps now as the community has become smaller. Maps like temple for example were once hated for being too fast paced but are now just the right size.
