That was taken on October 28, 2016. Too bad I missed by two seconds the screenshot of a vote that failed this week to change fortification to atcs by a large margin.
Regarding Niveus, it already occurs in the rotation and is kinda overplayed a bit imo, it is also too large for rotation 2. Nexus 6 is a good map imo, it does have a place in the rotation, but imo is too large for rotation 2, but possibly could use a slot in rotation 3, sfum I’m not sure about, it is an interesting map, but idk if it would be rotation worthy, we could try it.
Just because some people complain about Fortification, and/or vote for a map change when Fortification is up, doesn’t mean that it isn’t a good map for the rotation. There are a lot of people who do enjoy playing it. Also a lot of people do complain about atcs, as well as niveus, but they aren’t going to be removed from the rotation. In my experience, there are always at least some people who don’t like any given map.
I wouldn’t remove Fortification from the rotation completely, as besides for the above reasons, Fortification is of a very decent quality in game play, allows for a variation in interesting strategies even for 1.1 vanilla, and support “upper small” to mid sized matches. But what we could do is change the frequency at which fortification appears in the rotation.
Too bad this rotation system doesn’t support time period based rotations. I have noticed a variation in map preferences based on the time of the day.
