Once again..your favourite map?

Armored Shield for me, Bandar Desert is too big I don't even like it and Alborz Mountain only seems to be any good in Conquest but Death Valley is pretty awesome all over.

Armored Shield. It doesn't feel like BF3 at all. In fact, it reminds me of the first Bad Company. Which is pretty cool considering I only got to play through the campaign in that game.

I also like Alborz Mountain though. The snow is nice and I like running around on all of the rocks and ridges around the small fishing villages. And then how it moves up into the mountains in Rush is pretty cool.

I've only played on the other two once each and didn't have a great time on them. But I can't really say anything about them until I've played them more.

I pretty much hate them all. The one that sucks the least for me though would have to be Bandar Desert, it's the only one I've had a good game on.

I usually don't like night maps so much but I've had great scores on Death Valley so far!

Rubbish maps...

utter, utter letdown..

Im shocked these are Dice maps, shoddy grafix, boring, horrible colour pallet, far too big as well..nothing of interest compared to previous stock maps...very little diversity i find the most irritating...

bore fest...

Armoured Shield. Reminds me of Heavy Metal and Harvest Day from Bad Company 2. Plus I absolutely wrecked the enemy in my first game with the LAV-AD.

I have to admit after about 3 hours of playing this I am officially done with AK. It is the worst garbage I've ever seen passed off as a DLC. I seriously regret paying EA and Dice $50 for Premium and I will never make that mistake again.

Haven't really gotten to play anything but Bandar Desert and Alborz Mountains, so I won't cast my vote yet.

But Snowy Maps are my absolute favorite, so I doubt Death Valley or Armored Shield will change my vote.

The only things missing is sand bunkers and a golf cart or two.

Armored Shield and Bandar Desert are tied as my two favorites. I really dislike Alborz Mountains and haven't gotten use to Death Valley yet to make an opinion.

Yep! I won't lie. Never played BC2 online. But when I saw the open grassy fields, immediately thought of Par for the Course.

The only one I really enjoy is Death Valley. I feel like it is the smallest map out of the four, with the objectives (conquest) being relatively close together.

Bandar Desert on Rush! That map is awesome on the attack side coming into the shore line at the edge of a city, then pushing forward over a bridge to find a massive desert with a few bases in between. Shite is so epic.

Death Valley for me - I like the multiple approaches in conquest especially. Yet to play a rush game on it though.

I only really play conquest, and Death Valley is my personal favourite. Not too big, not too small. The terrain is great to traverse in tanks.

It seems as if Death Valley is actually the least popular, with Armored Shield being the most popular (based on the ratio of servers running AS over DV, and many AK rotation servers that exclude DV in particular). I think either they don't like the lighting, or/and there aren't any attack choppers (mainly the latter)
Many people leave when DV is coming up on my server rotation, and when it's being played, it's rarely maxed at 24 players. People usually leave to go play those 24/7 500% Armored Shield servers, and there are rarely servers running DV.
