When I played R6V, I noticed so many people would play Calypso, and some of the maps did not get much play. I would think, why the heck dont they make it a rotating map system so people would play other maps more.
Well now after playing COD4 I have decided that R6V had the right idea giving players some controll.
I would love to have the option in COD4, even If I could not play a specific map right now, I would like to be able to go into options and have a list of maps to check off as Yes place me if map available, and No never put me in these maps. Then when you logg in and choose team death match, the system would try to place you in a map on your preference list.
I realy hope they will do something like that in the future to give us some choice. Often I have been put in a map I realy hate, I back out, wait about 20 seconds and try to get in a game again and it puts me back it the same map again, crap.
Or how many times have you gotten to a room for a map you love ( finely after playing all day you finely get on your map) then (screw you dude) it gets voted past! Son of a Bi---!!
But to be honest I dont think they will ever put an option like that in COD4, Im not sure if they even could at this point. But I think they realy overlooked something that would have made the game alot more fun and less of a drag.
the only 2 things I have a problem with in COD4 are that and the Host system where you dont know who host is and host leaving closes game. But I hear they are fixing the Host issue on the next update.

Yeah game over im hearin ya..only way to overcome is to play unranked...I guess its so people just dont play one map and rank up/boost...Say HQ on shipment or Sabotage on wet work etc...
As for the host issue im 99.9% sure it will be fixed when the update/patch is released with the new maps... _________________________________________________________ http://www.360-hq.com - ENFORCER

It had a list of all the maps and you checked the maps you would want to play on. So if you didn't like on of the maps you could uncheck it and you would not be played in one of those games. _________________________________________________________
I gotta say I love COD4 just like it is. The random map keeps people on thier toes. Alot of the times when companies start trying to fix something they end up screwing it up even worse. I say if it ain't broke don't try to fix it. Anyone who has ever played Ultima online or Everquest knows this to be true. I am just thankful that one of the companies out there finally made a game with beautiful graphics,controls and replay value. Hopefully this trend continues. _________________________________________________________

Random is not even so bad, But let me give you an exmple of last nights game play.
First I usualy stay on Hardcore TDM because thats my kind of game and like the ranked matches. Any way I was wanting to get a game of crash in, just one. It took me over 4 hours before I got into a game on crash and I was put in the game with 1:30 remaining. Why did it take so long to get on crash? because I kept being put in the same 3 maps over and over.
It went like this.
Boot up the game
find match...............Missle base
next map.................Down pour..........Game ends and host leaves.
Find match...............Missle base...............game ends host leaves.
Find match................Missle base (already in progress)
next map....Headquarters...VOTE PASSED......map......Downpour....
next map........wetworks vote passed so host quits.....
find match........missle base, I back out right away..wait 20 seconds, find match.....Missle base same room I just left. I back out..
find match......vacant.........game ends host leaves.
next 2 maps in a row are the street with the blue white buss then back to missle base. etc.... now its not usualy that bad but last night, holy cow. but eventualy I did get crash.
I would be fine with random if it actualy moved me arround more.
The main problem is the host shutting down rooms and not letting the maps continue in a decent order. If the hosting is moved to another player in the room when host leaves, then rooms should continue virtualy non-stop. You will just have individual players coming and going. Heck you should be able to play all night whith out ever having to find a match after your origional log in. I think the update may make this happen.
Something else I was curious about was the vote kick option. If you click on a player in the room list you get the box with 2 options, View Card and Kick, but the Kick is always shaded out and you cant choose it.
Anyone know anything about this option? Is it only for private matches? Often I have looked at it when I was host ( i believe ) and it is never available.
I love Hard core but once in a while you get the intentional Team Killer and the system wont boot him, One guy in a game I was in had over 20TK in one game. We need a vote kick or auto TK kick option for ranked hardcore games. Luckily it only happens like 1 in 10 games or so, but when it does, he ruins the entire game for both sides.
