    I kind of hope they keep the maps minimal, but awesome and streamlined. I wouldn't complain if there were only say... 5 maps, but they all were amazingly fun.

      A wild guess would be they will keep all maps from Q3:A and then add some. 5 maps is way to low for this game, you need 1v1 maps, FFA/TDM maps and CTF maps.

        Most of those maps weren't very fun to play on and most weren't supported by match/competitive play. So, instead of just keeping the old and adding some...I hope they do some new ones and keep the GOOD old ones (like q3dm6). ;)

      I can agree w/ a minimal/awesome/streamlined number...but, 5 is a bit too low. There's also so many game types that 5 would be something spectacular to pull off. But, I guess they could force the game mode on you depending on what map you pick -- kind of like TF2.

      q3dm6 is the only map that this game needs
