I cannot explain why i like the map i just do.  There is some maps which is better i agree.   But i would still choose this race map over any Arena map.  

 

I hate arena maps but i dont think they ever will be removed either. 
 

Some people dont like some maps. Thats how it works and we need to accept it. 

 

I can understand hating the arena maps as a whole (after all, no one likes getting rammed to death anyway)

But we're talking about one map, and I think that when a big enough part of the players do not like a map, then it should be removed (speaking of arena maps, there is also the non-LDT robot wars maps that could be removed, they are almost identical to the ldt version...)

 

EDIT : added a poll. :3

So it makes no sense to say "remove this one because we have that one".

 

 

In that case why was the older version of Sky switchback removed when a newer version created and the same with Drag. The purpose of V2 was to replace the older version yet downhill is the only map that has remained on the server when a newer/better version has been made to replace it.

 

If Downhill_v6 stays then I would also like the older version of Sky switchback put on the server as well as the older version of drag.

Downhill and Downhill v2 are two different maps. 

 

The old and new version of drag is basicly the same map.  That is the reason why you cannot the compare two situations.

About sky switchback- the car angles need to be set manually since the first 2 checkpoints are not in a straight line and the cars are orientated to the side of the road on spawn, pointing to the second checkpoint, which kind of sucks.

That's different. Sky, Drag & Triple decker have the exact same map layout as the map they replaced, but with important improvements. Well, I don't know the backstory of Sky, but old drag made you spin out because of the lines between the lanes, and the old triple decker made you miss a checkpoint if you made the jump (and not to mention all the aesthetic improvements showfur did to it).

 

Downhill 2 is an entirely different map and has nothing in common with Downvill_v6.. Well, except the name.

Tbh i have no problem with this map even though tones of people do because its hard or theres clusterfucks but that adds to the fun, Being strategic and not being wiped out or flipping over and really its a pretty easy map if you dont push so hard that your flip. "You go down a hill then through a little maze and around a corner then you go down another hill then over a ramp and then round a corner and down another hill "  But we need to fix the voting system!! Its the same maps all the time, I went 4 hours straight on gmr with out seeing detroit. Its like the older maps come up more :s

I have to agree with microlander.

I have noticed that the map voting system is NOT entirely random. Some maps DO come up more often.

Actually, I think I made a thread about this at some point.

 

I did an experiment a while ago (and I suggest others do the same!) - I screenshotted every voting screen i came across (got about 50 of them), and maps that I already had a hunch about turned out to show up more often on the vote, as I suspected. For example, one maps that almost never shows up on the map vote is gmr_flash_tron. And I don't see Ghost Valley show up very often either. I've only played the latest version like 2 times since it was released, and it was some time ago  :P

So removing it is a solution because it has a similar name?

If that's the biggest problem u guys see with it, then a better solution would be to rename it on the map vote to, for example, "OLD downhill"

 

Also, giving the maps a map icon would also help.

That would solve part of the problem, indeed.
