I currently have Battle Mode Map Pack 1-3. The defaults are cool and all, but I thought that some new fresh, exciting maps would be great to play on, right?
Why? They cost money.
Before I even talk about the money part, we don't NEED new maps. All they give us is some fancy builds to look at that we have to pay for, and that's it. And we aren't the only ones wasting things. While we're wasting money buying these maps, 4J's wasting time making them! We should be getting bugfixes and REAL updates! An Insect Observatory has less bugs than this game! (I was exaggerating there, just mad right now >:( )
I think these maps are a ripoff. Think about it: PC gets everything free (sure, there's some money involved after buying the game, but I'm talking about the game itself charging you). Pocket Edition is getting awesome new updates and fast. Soon, if we continue having to throw money at the developers, the colsoles will get left behind.
The skins are ripoffs, too. PC and PE can customize their skins however they want. But I, instead have to buy each skin pack to get an extremely limited selection of skins that mostly, I don't even want. But back to the maps.
Definetely not getting Map Pack 4, no matter how cool it looks. These maps should be free. Making these DLC wasn't because the devs NEEDED money.
Rollback Post to RevisionRollBack
Console Battle is two games rolled into one: gambling (whether or not you get one of the OP weapons) and betting (which teammate won't turn on you, since teaming is pretty much a requirement to kill off another team)! Of course, it's not all chance; at its core, Battle is about triumphing and defeating other players... by kicking them out if they win to make yourself feel better.
Though not all the maps are good, and I do wish that there were more than 3 free-to-use maps available, the system isn't too bad. Though it does cost money, at least there is (sometimes) special music produced for the maps, as well as a (usually) balanced setup that is fun to play on.
Personally, I think it would be awesome if we got a new free to use map that was end-based and had an end ship and the end pillars and such. That would be really fun.
