Actually, I think Standoff is a fucking great map.

A map that big, with br spread as terrible as it was, made for an incredibly non-enjoyable experience for me. Other than fucking around in vehicles.

Personally I didn't even like the Halo 3 maps. I think how "good" a map is, is solely determined by how the mechanics of the game are played out. For example, Chill Out didn't work in Halo 3 because it was a terrible competitive shooter. And in another example, a map like Haven or Zealot would probably be amazing in Halo CE because the game itself is fun. But that's just my opinion.

It honestly isn't so bad. It's a large map, but it's extremely open. If it was a map in say Halo Reach or Halo 4, it wouldn't have worked at all. It would have ended up being a match of bunkerwars because of how easy it is to hit shots across the map.

Somehow, the BR spread made it work, because you had to get closer, and it promoted map movement and aggresive playstyles.

Add Snipers to it on the Heavy version and it's without a doubt one of my favorites from Halo 3 BTB.

Standoff was fun with people you know because it needs strategy to win

Solo it's the gayest thing ever

That's more or less what I was trying *failing* to get across. I've never played the Heavies version but I remember thinking for the longest time how someone made a map that big and only had rockets and one laser on it.

the point of it was to dominate with the warthog. which is btw a pretty good feeling when you know how to drive around and see wheelman medal after medal popping up.

I guess most people disliked it because there was no sniper, I think this gave it a special charme.

Standoff was awesome, I never did anything productive, pretty much just stunted around in vehicles. which was awesome.

That's exactly why I love this kind of maps. BRs and Warthogs all day.
I hate Valhalla because of the sniper rifle. I hate Reach BTB because of the DMR. I hate H4 BTB even more because there is no descope. Allowing people to shoot at long range so effectively completely destroys the fun in BTB maps in my opinion.
