Hopefully the new Warzone map is dope. The island map is super wack and 99% of the reason me and my group fell off of it.

Dare I say it was too big for its own good while looking very similar everywhere. Id go as far as to say BLOPS 4, which is a terrible COD game, had maybe the best BR map so far. There was usage of water, there were elevations but most importantly it really felt like each area taken from games of past were its own thing not like one tropical island all over.

Blackout map is far superior to any WZ map. Open, few buildings, relatively flat and colorful. Perfect map for non-camping, high ttk, tactical placing, perfect for a true battle royale game. Amazing how COD team nailed it and then completely messed it up with WZ.

If Ground War is back and even better, I might be down. Since I have no BF anymore but still have an itch for it I might as well try.
No preordering though, I'll wait for the reviews.

Sandy isn't good news. I hate sand based settings in games.
I would say in my head I agree with you, but in reality some of my all time maps are desert based. Dust, Sinai desert (bf1), Kings Canyon (apex). Didn't like the second PUBG map tho.

I think my favorite biome is mountain coniferous. Don't like jungle or snow tundra as much.
