    DM-Obsessive/Sunspire

    Despite from personal likes or dislikes (especially for certain texture packages) I think one can call DM-Obsessive a very good made map (not an excellent one).

    Aside from this I wonder where they grab out this old maps. Nobody cares for DecyberEscher... There are plenty of new maps still not reviewed...

    Their reviewing of a lot of poor maps could only mean 3 things in my eyes:
    1. They want to make clear that they review for mappers, not for players.
    2. They mean to review as many maps as NC or more, so they might as well start with some bad ones.
    3. They're stupid.

    I'm from Russia and I'm a newb member of NC=UT community and I don't know WHY PU kicked NC, PlatinumDesign and other good sites off. So, why did they do that? They must be mad or what? :mad:

    The layout of the map is a winner.

    TBH i rate it highly because it's fresh and not in the 'classic' richrig & crates style of DavidM and the 7 German Dwarfs :p

    The lighting greens out but plutonic is pretty much the only 'high profile' mapper doing his own ting these days o_O

    /me no care fo numbers other than a guidline - it seing what parts of map are gooder or less :rolleyes:

    Like, DM-DMUT-Cryptic][ got rated down for not having good flow. I don't care. Review says atmosphere is good, and I like that.
    Oh, well. Most of the new reviews are so thorough and well structured that I don't need to look at the numbers really. It's still good to force a bit objectivity on the reviewers; they can still add their personal opinion like "The rating system doesn't allow me to rate the map zero although I'd like to" and we can make of that what we want. A good system. ;)

    So I can conclude the rating numbers are a kind of smallest common denominator that are useful if the review doesn't give me a clear enough picture of what to expect.

    Don't be so f*** positive :rolleyes:

    I don't mind anyone saying they're best. It's saying how bad the others are (over and over again) what ticks me off. Note they don't say worse but outright bad.
    Makes difference to me. And then adding such offhand remarks about how a bad map would be rated highly on those other sucky map review sites... cheap. :hmm:

    Well, you don't mind. Got it. I do. Now we'll wait for the thing to come 'k? ;)
