I wondering what locations any of you don't like much in any Deathmatch games. I get fed-up with the airport always selected because there's too many open spaces and others like to piss about driving up and down the runways and flying the helicopters about too much. I prefer the DEathmatch games in the streets because there's more places to take cover from such as the buildings. In the airport, most people rush to the helicopters as if they're virgins rushing to an orgy and the next thing I know, most of the fight is in the air yet again.

Happiness Island can be a bit of a pain for the same reason because of too many open spaces. The problem with Happiness Island is, we can keep re-spawning at the end of the dock where the person that just killed one of us is still there where we can get killed again and again and again. That pisses me off. I get a lot of lagging when I re-spawn most of the time and I feel as if the games are unfair. I don't mean the lagging always comes from my end.

The prison can be a drag as well because we can't use vehicles there.

Bohen is a bad area because due to it having steep roads, it's hard to tell if somebody is at the bottom of a steep road, higher up a steep road or up on top of a building.

I hate the airport map because when people stop rushing for the heli's it's only to pick up a sniper and camp in the game resulting in two things that can happen.

One: You run out of time because they apparently have no life and are on weed just staring at the screen.

Or two: You get so frustrated with the person that you charge in after them and get sniped / try to counter snipe and get picked off / take a helicopter and ram it into one closed off space in hopes of finally whacking that bitch

I hate any place that is small. Charge Island, Happiness Island, Colony Island, the Prison.

Those places piss me off.

LoL I was about to say exactly that.

Eh, I don't like wide open locations like ALL OF ALDERNEY or the whole fucking map.

Bohan is good because of the different elevations and relatively close quarters for gunfights to take place in. There's also a bunch of great sniper locations.

Just give me one of the big four islands, i want vehicles and cover. I hate it though when they have the respawn distance set to close, that pisses me off. After you whack someone they respawn like right behind you and whack you before you can turn around, then you get this continuous cycle of people killing each other when they spawn. You cant get 3 feet before youre erased then when you come back you sort of kill them right away to exact some matter of revenge, once they are dead, you go to run and again you get killed by the first guy you shot cause he spawned right behind you. Set it to far people. And turn the traffic on, and i like it when the cops are on, it gives it a little more reality when youre fighting other people and cops at the same time. I hate it when im hosting and have it turned on, then when people go to join in the set up screen they see that and decide they want to kick me, go host your own game dipshit.

To be honest I find that the whole of liberty city is pretty shit for deathmatch, people always end up fucking around, either the respawn is too far so its a massive slog to get back to the game or its too close and you get fucked up every time you respawn. I like it most when you get in a game with people who play like a proper team, give cover for you and watch each others backs because if you dont have that no amount of buildings to take cover behind can stop the toher team getting at you

I remember one TDM in Bohan, it was like some sort of assault mission or something. There were about 10 of us and our team kept pushing the other one back, it was very tactical, with pincer movement and such, we started off on one side of Bohan and gradually worked our way to the Algonquin bridge.

So yeah any of the main boroughs really, they all offer something different depending on the mood i'm in. The airport is nice and open for easy sniping and killing noobs. I played a match last night with autoaim disallowed, it was a $2500 match and I remember I was winning, suprisingly, in fact I finished the match with 23/0, when the others only had 5-6 kills, I would've won but the connection cut out and everyone got kicked, as usual.

ditto for me... i especially hate how any online modes like racing, freeroam, or deathmatches all start at the airport... whats so fucking special about the airport?! sure it's fun every now and then but, i am sick of everything being at the airport...

not always true... sometimes a good team will wipe the floor with you but, there's times when i can take out a whole team by myself... i tend to stay away form my teammates for the most part... we'll work together on occasion but, more times than not, my teammates don't provide much help for me... or they want you to get in a car, which is a deathtrap in deathmatches...

one thing that does piss me off though is when someone joins team deathmatch and decides to be on their own team... if you wanted to be by yourself, you should of joined deathmatch, not team deathmatch...

I am one of those people, I like a challenge. Sometimes it's fun taking out a whole team with a few well placed shots while they rush you, then retreating to a safe distance.

I hate the cities. Any place without a lot of cars, like Happiness Island, or Port Tudor, is where I usually play.

dont like any of the small open areas either. like lots of buildings and cars and people. Whats with the airport ??? When I get into a game and its the airport , I leave .. I would have to agree on how irritating it is when you respawn right where you got killed. Other wise as long as you have a good modem , router and ethernet cable , The game rocks. ( dont use a belkin router , they suck !! )
