I don't mind Ancient beings added to the map pool. I'm bothered that they removed Train, and not Mirage or Dust II
This map is worse than every early map in map pool. 1000 spots where you can camp, too many spots to check, green everywhere and because of that it"s hard to see enemy on long distance with dark spots.
Horrible map. They should removee mirage cuz they never remove this, and bring back old cbble/tuscan/cache to map pool
Best way to test and update a map is by making pros play it and make them give feedback. This is decent update.
who cares about ancient? LOL
DUDE i cant get into fucking corners on this map its ass
From when ancient will come into effect, in flashpoint or in remaining dreamhack master too?
Ancient is a good map
My PC is not a good PC
Bad PCs can not run good maps properly
My PC can not run Ancient properly
People hated vertigo when it first came out, now everyone loves it :-)
Give them 3 months and few updates, ancient will be a great map
Also I think mirage is a great balanced map but could use some reworking/redesign of bombsite or smth like that
Dust2 is the map that should be deleted from the game it is so ASS
what a joke where is tuskan?
This current ancient is gonna help people to move valorant men so its good for riot
I agree fun map haters stay LOSING !!!!!!!!!!!!
crap map with cheaters and lag
only redditors are complaining in hltv
its okay map but b-site is awful
Awful map, very bad design, just another de_dust2 with the design tbh
no, valve best developer xd
A site is so easy to take. Smoke left and right sides of halls, and the door to the left all from basically spawn then flash over and clear the 2 corners that CTs can hide. Have awper watch cat and ez win
more green maps valve pls
yes, ancient much metter than fkn bot train
Yeah I am positive about Ancient
I think that B site is fine, however A is just way to open with only a small amount of cover to plant. It's definitely more Ct sided, however the T's get insane amounts of map control with the only exception being mid. I like the idea, we just need more bombsite boxes volvo :D
Ancient such an ass map lmao, I wanted them to put Anubis in. Would be such a nice map to see pro's play.
Worst developer he removed train instead of mirage
Yeah Ancient is ok, but dropping Train instead of fkn Mirage i dont like ... furthermore where fucking Tuscan ... that would be an addition to the Mappool!
ha r u fuggin srs in my eyes
They just need to make it so I get more than 30 fps playing it plz
Ancient is better for viewers than Train?
I love the style of it and it's alright
It is a fact that they are going to update it constantly, and I am happy that new maps are coming, but I do not understand why it is train
Every map needs some time, I dont understand how ignorant people can be to literally hate something the first time it comes out
why couldn't it be office! i wanna see pro's handle hostage maps!
overpass is bad when it came out
It's a good map if you have a team that actually knows the callouts.
I played a game last night where everyone on my team was playing for the first time.
It was my 3rd game on the map and I just had callout map on my other screen like if you're gonna play comp then at least try.
The map itself is okay, the problem is that the coloring is awful
I find it a bit boring honestly, similar kinda map to dust2, mirage and cache.
But im not opposed to valve putting it in. I just dont think it should have replaced train. I understand why it was train that was removed, its the least played map. But why is it the least played map when the map is actually really good and interesting to play? Its because people are afraid of playing it and lose their rank since they dont know the map well. Even in supreme people dont know how to play it. Imo that could be easily solved.. By removing mirage. If Valve were to forcefully remove mirage, it would force players to start playing and learing train-nuke-vertigo. By removing train now, does not fix the problem. Because the problem was not the map itself, it was the fact that people didnt play it, what will happen now is that ancient becomes the new train. People will still be playing 90% mirage and again, ancient will become the new train. If they want a new map (and even old maps) to have a chance, they need to forcefully remove mirage. Even if only for a while. I dont se new maps being able to suceed as long as mirage is still there.
so are you saying that ancient will take 9 years or so to be good?
We played it and my friend of and I got disconnected. Another friend got disconnected and he had to his game got uninstalled. Valve really outdone themselves with this one.
Especially when compared to the launch versions of Overpass, Cbble, Vertigo remake and even Newke, Ancient actually plays alright from what I've seen so far. It's not like some operation maps in the past where it's just completely unbalanced for one side, or there are absurd rushing strategies that completely break any timing. It actually plays how you'd expect it to.
My main complaint so far is that the best way for CTs to hold mid is by rushing up to the new corner and holding elbow, which makes it really hard for the Ts to get into mid. But then once the Ts take mid they can get pretty much anywhere in the CTs backlines and it's really hard to hold a site or rotate in. So mid is crazy important to hold, but because of the long rotates losing a site is also quite hard to deal with. Just my thoughts.
hahahahaha shit will be shit
I played like 5 games on it yesterday and I loved it
definitely map with potential
If they fix fps on ancient it might be good. But now no
They should make it a bit less green and it fine
i dont think so, map is way too dark
