So after a few games and reading majority of the posts in this thread, I've deduced this much.
1. This playlist is garbage with these maps.
What I don't get is how you can possibly enjoy a Shotty Snipes playlist given how terribly small the maps are. There's no point in having the sniper. Just rename it "Shottys" and turn it into a casual, social playlist with the description "All Ye Who Enter Here, No Skill Is Required." That would solve this whole uproar in seconds. Also, while you're at it, throw in an actual Team Snipers playlist. I don't want an option of using a sniper just to know it's pointless and that I'm practically forced to use a shotgun regardless.
2. Why rank for no skill?
Every single game I play, the team that opts to use the weapon that requires any skill to use, the sniper, loses the game because the other team just runs and guns shottys the whole match. That or it's an all out shotty fest. There is no skill involved in walking up to another player, laying your over-sized reticle over him, pulling the trigger, and watching overkill pop up. Don't rank this playlist ever again. It's absolutely embarrassing.
3. Finally, give us larger maps.
Every single map is like a CQB nightmare. I'm forced to literally scan every corner of my screen while watching my radar in my periph. Give the game some breathing room from the close quarter crap and make these maps a little more spacious. The close quarters thing got old after 5 games in a row on Swat with stupid Swatnuns (which is also broken). If you really want better reviews on this dumb playlist, make it a social game, take out the snipers and take out its ranking. Problem solved.
