Yet again, I need your help! Help me list for each maps, or at least the most popular maps, the amount of players it should be played with in order for it to work.
(Real numbers ranging from 1 to 16)
Please list them as following
Map Name, lowest amount of players, highest amount of players.
Bloodgulch, 8, 12
Basically meaning on map Bloodgulch the amount of players should be ranging from 8 to 12 in order to have an absolute fair game.
Anything above or below just doesn't work well with the map design.
It might be a bit of a task the list them all but if we all pitch in I'm sure we'll go a long way. Don't worry you can start with you favorites and update the list as you play!
I recommand starting with the stock maps and the most popular CE maps.
Battle Creek (beavercreek)
Chiron TL34 (putput)
Hang em High
@Dennis can you post the full list of maps?
As I'm unable due to "Message cannot contain profanity. Please read the rules. Bypassing the filter will get you banned!" (spoiler tags would be great)
Here is my list:
Battle Creek (beavercreek), 6, 10
Blood Gulch, 8, 12
Boarding Action, 8, 10
Chillout, 4, 6
Chiron TL34 (putput), 6, 8
Damnation, 6, 8
Danger Canyon, 10, 14
Death Island, 12, 16
Derelict (carousel), 6, 8
Gephyrophobia, 10, 14
Hang em High, 6, 8
Icefields, 10, 12
Infinity, 16, 16
Longest, 4, 6
Prisoner, 4, 6
Ratrace, 4, 8
Sidewinder, 10, 14
Timberland, 10, 16
Wizard, 4, 6

Wizard and Longest both work really well for just a 2 person deathmatch I find.
Gephyrophobia works well with anything over 8, as does Icefields.

If everyone plays right, every map is fun with a range from 2 to 16 players.
I've played extinction against just one other person once and it was still really fun. It's quite fun to try to find each other on large maps, especially on maps with tunnels because you can encounter the other player with their back turned and snipe them in the back.

If you want to know more information about the main Halo league then visit the following:http://www.clanwars.cchttp://s9.zetaboards.com/HPT_Forums/index/
It's where the real skilled Halo players play. But don't think they cheat, because most of them are old players ever since Trial or Combat Evolved first came out. They also play those matches by getting on this program called HAC (Halo Anti Cheat) which detects if you are using any sort of hack while you have your Halo opened along with that program as well as they have to record every game and are asked to upload within like a 2-day time limit if the other team requests for the video. Players that don't get on HAC and don't record or get caught cheating in this league will result in a league ban along with both CD hash ban from servers and IP ban from forums.
