Season 1 of Modern Warfare features the biggest content drop in Call of Duty history, featuring 7 new maps, two new weapons and the introduction of the Battle Pass.
With so many excited to dive back into nostalgic territory, not everyone in the community shares these views.
Owner of 100 Thieves and Ex-Pro Nadeshot voiced his opinion on Twitter, with many well-known faces of the community each having their own say:
He’s not wrong – many CoD fans would have spent numerous hours playing these three maps in the past.
Both Crash and Vacant were introduced during the start of Call of Duty 4, they were then brought back in Modern Warfare 2, as well as Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered.
Shipment was also a COD4 launch map, which has since featured in Modern Warfare Remastered and was re-imagined in Call of Duty: Ghosts and Call of Duty: WWII.
Lack Of Consistency?
NRG’s Hitch could not help but jump into the debate, claiming that as CoD developers are not consistent with map drops.
Is it possible for Infinity Ward to take the formula from Old School maps and use it to make new ones? Consistency is key, but who is the judge on what should be used when designing them?
Highrise, Favela, and Crossfire are all examples of near enough symmetrical layouts that turned out to be great maps because they allowed for free-flowing gameplay. Sometimes the simplest of maps will keep players wanting more and large, one-sided maps such as Euphrates Bridge can create for a frustrating experience.
It's clear that Infinity Ward sees that adding in fan-favourite maps will ensure player happiness and ease the burden of development on the creators.
It is unknown whether any of the current maps that Infinity Ward created will go down as classics, but one thing is for sure, they smashed the Gunfight and Ground War maps out of the park.
Along with the launch of Season 1 for Modern Warfare, a new patch has rolled out - Patch 1.10.
With the arrival of new map Crash, a playlist has been created specifically for it called 'Crash 24/7'. New game mode Reinforce has also been added, as well as a few changes to other playlists.
A few adjustments were added to some weapons such as the Riot Shield, .357 Magnum and a few bugs.
There has yet to be any major changes surrounding the CDL, or additions that will impact the CDL with just over a month until launch.
