Best maps of what? Any Halo? Or custom edition ones?

There hasn't been a single original custom map that has surpassed anything by Bungie imo.

TBH I think Lumoria is actually more fun to playing than some parts of the OG H1 Campaign. It honestly feels like an actual expansion made by Bungie.

It's a very hard decition imo.

By quality: Bigass
By Nostalgia: Hugeass (c'mon, it's a funny map even to these days and its simplicity )
By classic: Bloodgulch (even if it's considered an "original" and not a custom one).

Matty Dratty, KVOND makes a good point.
Is there a limit to the amount of times a user can vote?

My personal favorite is still Lumoria.
But I enjoyed TSC:E and the Flood Campaign both equally much, if not more, since they had more novelty to it gameplay wise (+ you get to experience these custom maps from a fresh perspective, as opposed to knowing what will happen in Lumoria).

There is no limit. Vote as many times as you want. This poll isn't a popularity content (unlike the last one)

Uh what, so one user could spam the same mapname multiple times?
Or what do you mean exactly, how will the results be tallied and displayed?

Just curious.

This is a general idea for something at CE3 2016. The final results will be hand picked by the CE3 Crew or there will be a 2nd poll that won't allow multiple choices. Kinda just narrowing things down at the moment.

I only played the first level of Lumoria, but the voice acting kinda killed it for me, plus I didn't like how parts of it were straight up copied from the H1 campaign. (various rooms and structures).

I've been playing CE and Halo in general for over 10 years lol. I even remember playing your H2 Coagulation map at school with a few people in 9th grade.

Is Bigass really a quality level worthy of "best map of all time", though? The map itself is just a big barren area with a few buildings littered about. Most people play it because of the nice tags and the level being big, rather than it being a real standout well designed map. Just like Hugeass and Extinction.

I may be a little biased, but play Episode 2 of Lumoria. The VA isn't the best but the gameplay was amazing compared to Episode 1. Especially the last 2 main sequences, starting with the tank portion.

Most of my favorites are just regular SP maps. There were some good ones like: BioHalo, Coliseum II, Contact, and many others.

Of course Lumoria, SPv3, Takedown, and other high-status projects are worth a mention. Though I feel everyone already knows about them.

In terms of high-level gameplay, this is correct. To my knowledge, the creators of the best maps had no knowledge of the player spawning system. Not to mention their loose understanding of static weapon times and their implications.

In terms of aesthetics, Bungie's stock maps have been surpassed many times over the years, although not consistently.

I've been playing since Halo PC launched and I can only think of a few maps that can even compare to the stock maps in terms of gameplay.

Everyone's so obsessed with graphics and nice shaders and no one ever cared to learn how the game is played at a high level. So we end up with beautiful-looking maps that have extremely shallow/broken gameplay.

Those maps are actually pretty solid but they have their flaws. In sanctuary you can drop grenades and the flag accidentally through the floor/ground and I think the BR isn't as great it is in Halo 2. Still much better than the H3 one found in Foundry. Bigass for me is like the oldschool Battlefield games. You can't really enjoy it unless you have a coordinated team/squad or just fking around trolling with friends.
