Everyone not stick to PVP, pvp is fun, and yes it is a lot of fun seeing someone else die and rage, but cmon...even if we all stick to pvp...play a different map...plains has been the same map for 2 freakin years now, everytime I get online I make a defeat match, a capture match, or even a confront match on a different map, and I always spend my time waiting 30 min and no one joins and i'm farming. and another thing, Why pick plans map if its only 11 minutes long? U really wanna spend 20 minutes waiting on slow ppl that sit and talk in town to join ur room, and u realize you've been playing shorter than the wait time?
Plains is the easiest map to use. It's wide open with no boundaries which makes it easy to cluster together; however, it's not so big that you can't reinforce your teammates when they need it. It also has large sectors of troops that make it easy to flask. For Confront matches, Plains is the most optimal map.
Stronghold and Castle work fairly well for Confront. Castle, however, is usually dreadful to play on because of the crappy spawn system in DWO. Stronghold is great unless you're a musou spammer, a slow flasker, or your enemies are rushers.
Castle's main flaw is that the Supply Bases are located in inconvenient locations and, for whatever reason, the game just loves to spawn people at the Supply Bases (even when there are several other bases in which it could spawn you.
Stronghold's main flaw is that flasking is usually difficult for weapons with heavy builds (several tempers on slots 5 and 6) because there are usually very few 'good' places to flask (depending on which troop layout is selected). Most of the time, the best flasking area is the North Eastern/Western corner (depending on your team and the layout) and usually only 1 person on your team who is spawned in or near that area. Maybe I just have bad luck, but I get stuck spending the first 1-3 minutes trying to get to a decent flasking area and avoiding rushers.
Gate: Great map if you like Rush Weapons and/or not flasking completely. I would never confront on this map though. Rush-fest.
