Am I the only one who loves death island?

OP LethalQ

So they reduced the weight of ice fields and death island today. Kinda makes me sad. I really don't get the hate for death island. It's a great map IMO.

CTF it's fine but for Slayer it should be team snipers like in the old build.

Sadly there is no just snipers option in match composer for 8v8. I am searching HCE/H2A 8v8 for slayer and action sack... perhaps snipers is an action sack game

I'm talking pre August Update there was Team snipers on Death Island.

I love both of them. That was a sad change.
I like Death Island and Ice Fields too, the only map I don't enjoy as much as the other ones was always Infinity.
It was quite a popular map to play in on the PC, I can tell you that!
I enjoy it a lot, the PC CE BTB maps are my favorites. Wish Gephyrophobia came up more.... Though any of them suck for slayer except for Timberland, just because they are so big.
Death Island is cool. Sad to Ice Fields get reduced. They are both great ctf maps.
I wish gephyrophobia came up more too
Those are pretty cool maps, but yeah one night all I played was death island.

Also, by reducing the weight of those maps, this may increase my chances of getting Blood Gulch matches... ( ͡ ͜ʖ ͡ )
Signing into my account for the first time in ages to add to this. I also love death island. When I get my xbox back and give MCC another go I hope I can find a game on it one way or another
No way... that’s insulting. I’ve fields is one of my most memorable maps from CE and Death Island is my second favorite map in the whole series (behind Timberland). Why is this? Are streamers complaining hating these maps because they’re not getting hang em high enough or something (I’ve seen it)? Halo PC is where BTB practically originated and those maps are all time favorites of the community. If Xbox original CE fans want hang em play slayer like you’re used to.
I love Death Island, it's a place where a good Banshee pilot can completely control the game. I love how the tunnels come out right next to the bases. I can fly in low, drop in and grab the flag and be back in the tunnel before they get enough shots on me to kill me.

I'm glad they added Banshees to the CTF games, before that the only real way to get the flag was to do the tricky drop from the top and run through the teleport.
Death Island can be a fun map, but Slayer on it is a nightmare for, especially with the Banshees and Shade Turrets removed. I feel like all I do on that map is roam around aimlessly. At least with CTF, there is an incentive to push, and so you will always find enemy players. I think adding BTB Snipers on it would be interesting, though.
