These maps are crazy. In Conquest matches you can get anywhere, anyhow / anyway you choose. It is ridiculous. Madness. There seems to be no flow of the maps. Rubble everywhere. You almost only have to take one step in any direction and you are behind cover. Some of the maps just seem huge, with the possibility of a camper being anywhere.
My first 45 minutes was stupid. Kept getting banned and kicked. Neo and I had trouble staying together. So I went into the AVS server to just walk around and check out the maps. But within 10 seconds the server was full. Literally 10 seconds.
It is going to take a while to just learn these maps, because they are large and chaotic. I agree they are somewhat similar to Seine Crossing, Grand Bazaar and Strike at Karkand...but at the same time they really are nothing like those maps. I mean there are giant hotels that just go up, streets are mini ravines, hallways that wind through the middle of the map, and just rubble everywhere. The aftershocks are disorienting, but I am not sure if they change the map at all.
Scavenger is almost just like Conquest Domination on Close Quarters. You have to cap flags. You pick your pistol and squad perk (so squad ammo and grenades are pretty important). There are blue lights around weapons you can pick up, and they have different levels of weapons but I am not sure what that means. The weapons always seem to be in the same place, but the actual weapon you get seems random. I can't seem to get a win in this mode. You can't revive in this mode, so that is a pretty big deal. People run in packs. Most of the guns only have 2 clips. It is really hard to take out a big pack of dudes, with no med packs or reviving capabilities.
Rush seemed pretty nice. The routes to get in and arm the m-coms seemed very restrictive though. Like only a couple ways in. But once in, you can drop spawn beacons. I can see myself really liking these maps for Rush mode.
Regular conquest was pretty good. The vehicles are kind of funny. Some of the vans / humvees have shells like what an LAV has.
All in all I think the maps are pretty good, but I need to explore them to really understand them.
