I'm gathering information so I can improve MWBU Public server mainly and I wanted to know what your favorite TSA maps are? If you could please give me a list of your best or favorite TSA maps for me to use in MWBU level rotations on the MWBU Public server I will try to come up with a set of great level rotations for the community to enjoy. This has been my goal for a long time and now MWBU is close to fulfilling this, but I need your help.  My goal is to have level rotations that change weekly to keep things fresh. Thanks to everyone who contributes!

Are these to be MWLL Dev maps or community created maps or both?

Both, any maps that are ready for game play!

We are going to hook electrodes to Werewolf so that every time the server starts to choke on a less than perfect map he can be of assistance.

Nice one werewolf

I like:
Badlands, savannahPro, Forsaken, Northwind (or whatever its called) and sandblasted (even though its so played out, it is a decent map). I dont know how well it works, but running warzone as a TSA worked really well too during the 31h battle. Its a great map.

Dont like:
Palisades, Frostbite

Hope this helps!

Just not that gawd awful TSA_Crater map.

I actually enjoy all the TSA maps, some more than others:  Marshes, RingofFire, Frostbite, Northwind.  Been having a blast on the newer Thunder Rift TSA, very fun matches, and not a bridge based meatgrinder anymore. :)

I would say Inferno and Extremity, are on the bottom of the list, but good maps nonetheless.

I suck!! But WE are AWESOME.  We started a unit.  What's that?!  YOU WANNA TOUCH MY UNIT?!! :P ^^12thVR Recruitment Page(clickthepic) ;)

I never actually played TSA_Crater

Sure, my map is pretty similar looking to it (craters can do that) but I didn't even know it existed until when I was nearly done my map. What's so bad about it anyway?

That's all it is though, a big crater, with just some little hills around the edge.  It looks ok, but was obviously made to make LRM camping easier than it already is.  ::)

We tested it and NO! Not in the rotation, although I thought about having a match with 12 on 12, everyone in a long tom and last man standing wins! What do ya think?

We are going to hook electrodes to Werewolf so that every time the server starts to choke on a less than perfect map he can be of assistance.

Actually I've got a great team of people who are working on the servers and we are making good headway with them! I want to keep some secrets right now so I will not be naming names in order to keep those people on task and not be fielding 20 questions. Also they have been ordered not to talk about things openly until the time is right. We have some very exciting news that I hope to release in the near future and I hope you will all be ready to push things to the limit when I announce it!

Please refer people to this thread when you can, the more input I get the better the maps will be!

Also community mappers, we really enjoy all your hard work and we are looking forward to getting your maps into our rotations! I know we all enjoy running the testing on our servers before we release them to the public, so keep them coming! Right now my goal is to make our servers a great place for the community to play in!

Thanks to the Server Team at MWBU and thanks to the community for the ideas!

Aiden,

Community maps are as welcome as MWLL maps are. However community maps often are not as well vetted. Our primary focus for our "public" server maps are that they be stable for as many playeres as possible. Then obviously they should be fun for public play. This is not the same type of map we are searching for in the league.

Now that I think of it, Savanna Pro, plz and thank you, one of my favorite maps, especially for pub play.  Gotta love the big 'open' map with all that glorious soft cover! ;D ;D

Duffanichta's map, Bedrock, is a good fun version of Terrain control, where you control terrain instead of a small little base. It centralizes combat but encourages tactics such as flanking.
MechWarrior, cling thee not to this world, for it holds no more for you. But Listen! Listen for the song from afar, and heed the lilting call of the land that awaits.

Let your final breath slip from your pierced chest,
And your broken hands fall from the stick.
Bend your bloodied brow to this life,
And let tumble the shattered helm that once cradled your head.
