I just logged into MWO for the first time since Oct.

I wanted to play Hellbore, obviously, to try it out.
Hellbore was an option in every game I played, and it took me 4 games to play it.
The low percentage of votes it was getting was honestly tempering my expectations.

4th game in, I finally squeaked a 31% vote tie against some other map, and we got Hellbore.

Lemme give my hot take- maybe it's just a first impression, but
Spoiler

A few weeks ago - when the map was fresh - it was picked more often.

Honestly I think people are a bit tired of it. I know I am. It's a great map but 35% of my drops drops last month (after it came out) were on Hellebore. I like a bit more variety personally.

90% of map area is not used. Whole fight is always in middle. One of team outflank enemy and its game over. Wasted potential imo. Not fan of new map.

That's not so much a problem with the map as it is a problem with Domination matches. They literally force you to fight in the same area game after game.
