And, it's still the same thing, atleast 3x more servers on classic maps, and the custom maps servers always play the same maps (extinction, snow grove, treehouse...)

Cmon guys! Someone needs to create a server with new maps or good old maps that not many people play because they aren't as big as hugeass or don't have H3 tags!

Here are some maps that I would like to see more often:

Sciophobia

Medical block

hydrolysis

(Zanzibar, delta ruined...)_INTENSE maps

naval

pipedream

TLMP maps

CMT G3 maps

Overdose maps

Halo 2 maps other than lockout and ascension

I know right!!?

EDIT>> I find it to mostly be SmG and DG's fault for not moving ANY of their stock-only servers to PC. Their only repl....EXCUSE is that they host "popular only". imo that's just promoting limited-choice

YES, since they pay to host these servers at no benefit to themselves, they have no right to choose which maps they put on the rotation!

take into consideration that popular maps must be played, otherwise the servers won't be.

You have something against bloodgulch on CE? even if they didn't host stocks, they'd be on popular maps like coldsnap or immure; snow grove.

I remember when I first came to CE, and so much custom games were on. Now it's only bloodgulch. Don't even see sidewinder anymore.

'cause in the end halo is a decade old with crappy netcode and an overall unrewarding MP experience, so people move on to better games.

So you have the few players that like CE because of customization...pelicans, longswords, weapons, etc. And they stick to the ones that offer those the most. i think stock maps are hosted because one likes the plug'n'play maps of CE as opposed to locked down PC.

a major problem is the fact that map makers take what they and a small community like, but the concept never takes on to the masses because typically the only custom thing about them is the BSPs; most ppl on this site prefer vanilla tagset. and why go to the trouble of downloading a 40mb file when you can just play a familiar map like bloodgulch or wizard?

It is called Halo "CUSTOM" Edition for a reason.
All you see now is about 95% Bloodgulch, with 2-3 Coldsnap/Hugeass Servers.

to be frank, and ill probably piss some people off here, most, if not all, cqb maps just don't take on because they're, as you say, not CUSTOM. use vanilla weapons, boring layout, etc. they look good, and have gameplay, but in the end a significant amount of the playerbase could care less whether the map is pretty or has though put into balancing, whats important is the fun factor. People come from PC to CE to experience new vehicles, new weapons that weren't in the PC version. A minority of maps(in the halomaps repository, at least) feature these.

ah, screw this. I'm tired.

have a look at the AAACE1 server, that always runs good ce maps and the owner has
mentioned in many threads that if people voted for maps then he would add them.

The problem with hosting custom maps is getting people to join. It just doesn't happen.

Yeah, it really sucks! You create a game and wait for 30 min and no one joins unless you put extinction and if you try to change the map to the one you wanted to play before nobody will have it and they'll be too lazy to close their game and download it...

stupid. starcraft was made in 1998 and it had native map-switching without closing the game. bungie/gearbox was lazy. downloading a map just to play on a temporary server IS a hassle, especially if you have tons of maps in your folder just for this scenario.

Those extra 3Ghz count ya know. It can't be because of my quad CPU. Halo doesn't know how to utilize multiple CPUs properly

Thats some great statistics there, did you stay up all night and repeatedly refresh the server to find out?

And no, I'm spammed to hell on back on xfire about real world gamenights practically every week. They were just playing literally a half hour ago.

I wholeheartedly agree. I used to play this game years ago, and it was mostly custom maps. (Well, mostly just coldsnap, but still.) Now it's like 90% blood gulch. And I hate blood gulch.

I literally have over 11 gigs of maps, and I the only ones I ever see played are Extinction, Coldsnap, and Immure. 3 maps, out of 11 gigs worth. Come on, CE community.

The state of how many CUSTOM Maps that are being played on CUSTOM Edition Is just Downright Depressing to me.

i think bumping the thread just for that is pointless it isn't going to change things.
you want to help fix it?
run a server with more custom maps.
