Map pool change's effect for you and me

Obviously you can play both Cache, Train, along with Ancient (and even Office and Agency) in matchmaking, although not Broken Fang Premier, if you want to rank up to Global Elite, but it seems like Ancient has been added, and Cache has been removed from FACEIT pugs. I think this is good because Cache hasn't been in the competitive map pool since 2019, and I think nobody still pug cache on a consistent basis on FACEIT anyways. What do y'all think? How does (-train) and (+ancient) from the active duty map pool affect you? I think it's easy to visualize that soon Train will be a relic of the past similar to Tuscan, Season, Cobblestone, and most recently Cache.

I hate Train and played it like 1 time every 6 months, so I literally dc about it being gone, I still didn't test Ancient so I will see this evening if this is really better than Train

It is better in some aspects and worse in others. Keep in mind it is a new map so it will be changed heavily over the next few months probably

It doesn't but it still feels out of place 😔👌

Honestly I disliked ancient but the new change to the a-site makes it a fair bit better, still the CT timing pushing A halls is unfair though and depending on timing can force you to use 2 mollies to even get it in the first 10 seconds B is still a mess and mid is just open space for the sake of open space I still don't think it's competition ready but it's already better

did they add anything new recently? or is this on the may 3rd update when they added? yeah Mid and B need to get fixed + T side timings. Also that dogshit connector (Connecting A and like mid or whatever I think you know what I mean.) is just an abomination imo

Just the 3rd May update I think that there needs to be something that either removes that a to mid link or changes the map to make it more accessible to get to CT from mid and then split a, but not b, there's an angle back b that can be watched with a aug there and the a site awper can swing around to deal with mid-CT-a flanks, this + changing B should fix most of the remaining issues The timings and rotations I don't think can be fixed on the size of the map alone

This would basically make it a jungle d2 though* so it'd have no character
2021-05-06 02:35
They need to fix it at least not to make it a tiny corrider where the CT can spam you and your teammate easily. yeah also B really need to fix those tunnels they are just bad (worse than in D2).

it's kinda sad because during the last year train became my favourite map to play. Everybody here seems to hate it but for me at least, most other maps became kinda boring so I just started playing mostly train. Sad to see it go.
2021-05-05 12:46
Im just angry they didn’t -mirage, I’m tired of always playing that shit and it need a rework so bad

Same map for 7 years, it's just disgusting at this point
2021-05-06 01:32
I think Ancient is an interesting map so I look forward to how it develops in the future
2021-05-06 02:35
I miss the days when you could queue up any map that you wanted. Scrimmage either a shouldn't exist or b should be optional. Why add maps and then not let people play competitive. Gone are the days of operations with a bunch of maps that added variety to the game.
