does anyone seriously vote for this map if/when it shows up? ._. I think it is the worst in the game IMPO. Lack of symmetry and balance bothers me.

I think this is the worst map in the game. It is terribly unbalanced (how is the Mortar supposed to compare to the Torque Bow??), and very annoying to maneuver around the map. So thus, I never vote for it. I'll even take Stasis over Day One.

personally I hate it...but the guys I play with it love it because we always get the hammer of dawn with a concentrated team effort. Still though...I can't stand it.

I vote for it if im on the COG, the COG always win, as they accuire the Torque Bow, and Hammer of Dawn on the weapon cycles.

I love how it looks and the incredibly obnoxious seeder in the middle is funny but I gotta get Epic on the fact that the weapon cycles are ridiculously unfair to the locust team. The mortar has been nerfed and nearly anyone can get away from it so it's seriously lacking when it comes to stopping anyone on the cog team from getting the torque. And the snipe is just not reliable enough to be any kind of threat to the cog team like the torque bow would be. Mix all that in with the fact that cog team gets the hammer and you've got yourself a pretty bad map for the locust team. They should call it 'Cog Won'...get it?

I don't like it at all, but I would rather have it instead of Ruins....

Day One and Stasis are the two maps I greatly dislike. Although I've had good games on each, the majority of them have been bad, and it's due to the map design. They are especially difficult when playing with bots.

What?! No, War Machine is awesome.

Day one is terribly unbalanced. Anyone at Sniper or Torque can be killed by the Hammer of Dawn. The Mortar isn't so bad, but it's not great.

Bite your tongue mr! Lol I love war machine and have since years 1 but I agree day 1 blows. The sniper has no chance when you die GETTING to it because of the hammer of dawn. Seriously

I am beyond sick of river, blood drive, jacinto, and pavilion. And security. EVERYONE VOTES for security! WHY?

This map is ridiculously biased for COG. The HoD in the hands of s killed player can easily destroy and entire team, so yeah...

If it was to come up as a poll, then I would vote for it. Its a great map for wingman and wingman for me is the most played gametype. Its my favorite gametype and a friend of mine and I pair up and we dominate in it about 95% of the time. :D

Security is a good map. It reminds me of Raven Down. There's minimal power weapons causing everyone to rely on their starting weapons for the most part.

Skill prevails.

Day One is by far one of the worst maps ever created in Gears history.

Best Horde map ever.

Worst Versus map ever.

Maybe it would be a tad better if the Seeder was a real hazard,

100% agree! I love the maps which are centered around your starting weapons and not based on weapon pick-ups. Skill=Shotgun in my eyes:D

In Soviet Russia, map hates you....

On a serious note, I do recognize how some maps favor either the COG/Locusts. However, if you really work for it with your team you can take away those power weapons. Won't always win, but teamwork is key no matter what map you're on.

I actually enjoy ruins lol. Even though it makes me look silly I will grab that shield and gorgon and mow people down lol. Very effective when playing submission and guiding your team mate holding the meatflag. Also good to hold off people from the ring in annex.

Security is camp central. Nothing skillful camping frags or button room.
