Had the pleasure only few times but it's amazing so far! Thank you PGI! It's a good change that a lot of people missed.

River City now is straight up better for all modes. Good job, PGI!

Domination circle was moved towards the area with rocks, spawn points for Domination were changed completely. Several ramps were added including the ramp on the waterside of the citadel leading to the helipad. So now a lot of ways that were only available to JJ equipped mechs are good for everyone.

There is one problem with the change. In Faction play the new spawn points can be easily camped by the opposing team. As you can probably guess this doesn't make for a fun game.

All spawn points? Or is there one in particular that is really bad?

It may appear okay from a drop down view but in actual game play....?????? Essentially, while the cathedral is within the dominion circle it will be center of game play, more so for pugs while for units.. ugh.. why leave it when within the safety of buildings and such you deliver pain to the enemy team....

/smacks self.. edited a few times... be good.... :)

Dude. The new drop zones on Domination do not work for FP. This follows from a general principal that the DZ's are planned for QP and don't always work out well for re-spawning in FP. But that H7 zone is like a really bad example of this. It is right in the action.

edit edit a few times.- Spawn next to the cathedral in River City needs to be moved from H6-H7 to H4-H5 in FP.. at least (edited from post) ... No shield walls, simply waiting for spawn to happen then backside is gone. The enemy does not even need to "spawn camp".

H7 spawn would be better in E4 for FP. just somewhere nearer/in buildings on left side near the rest of team, not out in open water where its terrible.

Jon, I preface this by saying that the new points are really good for QP. Map changes are great. Well done and thank you, you do great work.

Unfortunately, QP drops FREQUENTLY do not work for FP. We have a list going in the FP thread: https://mwomercs.com...ost__p__6152396

Some bad examples include:
River City, Domination, H7
River City, Assault?, D4
Crimson Straights, Skirmish, C3
Caustic Valley, Skirmish, D6
Forrest Colony, Assault, L9
Tourmaline, Skirmish, E3 & G7
Tourmaline, Assault, E4

Isolated drop zones are a surefire way to have dropzone farming and it really hurts gameplay, especially for new players.

I've played river city Domination many times since the circle was moved and the team that spawns on the H6 (water) side is at a HUGE disadvantage. When the citadel was the center of the circle you could use the citadel for cover pretty much all the way around but now if the water side team isn't super aggressive pushing into the city they get bogged down on the water side of the citadel and get completely locked out of the circle while the airport side can bombard them mercilessly because they barely have any cover while the airport side has the entire city worth of buildings to hide in. The circle really needs to be moved a little closer to where it used to be. It's not fair to both teams and that makes it frustrating to play when you get dropped on the crappy side yet again.

back before the new ramps where placed, it made sense that it was too powerful where it use to be. With the new ramps up to the Citadel, it's really helped balance the map out more, so it would make more sense to have the Domination point be back closer to that Citadel.

This map has (in my opinion) been hard to balance because of it's slightly lopsidedness. It's better than Crimson on balance, but it still seems to give one side an advantage over the other... The new ramps was a good shift in helping balance this map.
