But heck, people, stop argueing about all that. There are plenty of maps out there, so everyone will have maps which will suit them. Why not just (re)play those. Ok, there's this contest, but yea, is it really so important?
Ok, I myself don't like the hard maps, especially with little to no checkpoints, but that's why I played the fun and battle maps so often. Just because those are the maps which I like and which suit me best. But there are people loving the hard maps without checkpoints and they love to play those. Just, why not? Those maps should excist as well.
IS82 is for everyone. Be it players who like hard maps or those who like the easy ones.
Feel free to make your own maps if you are in need of more flags. People make different maps with whatever amount of challenge they want. Swimming shores is the first LARGE scale challenge maps, and if Shrooms wanted it to have 0 flags, let it have 0 flags. if you cant complete it, thats your own fault, it is supposed to be hard, complete it and you will be forever remembered as a champion. Go in BC, move the spawnpoint to the end of the map, and you will feel like a true champ after capping the end flag....
