Discounting the lack of aviation, why do you play so much Karkand?
Is it simply the best map, or is it simply the highest scoring map.
I wonder if karkand should be dropped in the next patch as a  official map. Look at the leaders stats and notice how much time they spend playing that one map.
     I confess I love karkand too, mostly because of no jets/helis.

It's the map with servers with the best ping for me.

its probably the only map to offer the closest combat possible.  i hate having to run half the map to get to the action sometimes, with karkand its right on the doorstep.  an upshot of this is that it offers high points and an easy way to get the criteria for a lot of awards :-)

i dont agree with dropping it but i do tend to avoid it these days.
i used to play it a lot, but it has now become very lame and unless your playing medic or support you probably wont have a good round. (unless your a tank whore).
i think sharqi is becoming the new favorite map, because it is a lot more open and dynamic than karkand and offers something to nearly everyone.
My personal fav will always be dragon valley though, it looks beautiful, includes both jets and choppers and it encourages teamplay.
thats my 2 cents, i'm out.

Because there's always a damn server with room that's playing it. Can't find a good 24/7 Shonghua these days...

1. Becuase it's really, really fun.
2. I hate verifying and most 24/7 maps are Karkand
3. All kits have some purpose in the round. For the first few minutes at least.

I dont really have a probelm with karkand, i have a problem with the people that play there.

When you are on the MEC and are losing the East Island YOU NEED TO GO THERE AND DEFEND IT. DO NOT WHORE AROUND AT THE HOTEL.  When the MEC loses that gatehouse they lose all their assets and ALL of their armor.  That means double armor for the USMC and NO armor for the MEC.  Please take this to heart

I don't play it nearly as much as I used to. I mostly play Wake now, Karkand just feels noobish and cheap.

Sharqi's closer.. But the karkand idea is just to wh0re up the points.

Wake feels cheap too sometimes, but Karkand moreso. I feel like I die more on Karkand as a result of my circumstances rather than a lack of skill on my part.

i play Karkand a lot simply because almost every server has it

it's not anywhere near my favorite map (Daqing Oilfields bitches!!!) but it's just that a whole lot of servers play it... so i kind of have to

it's not that i DON'T like it... it just gets repetetive after awhile

i love servers that have 2 rounds per map, cycling through ALL of the maps, but they don't have enough of those...

Edit: i'll bet i'm like the only person in the world that thinks Daqing Oilfields is the best map

Exactly the same for me. Every other map (except Sharqui) has big empty spaces (with no control points) that take a long time to cross if you are on foot. You can't really play most maps without getting into a vehicle at some point--and you can't do anything if there are no vehicles at your location. Karkand and Sharqui are the exceptions.

maps that are wide open have more than enough vehicles to go around, and mashtuur you can easily walk around too

I like it because the funny part is that everybody in the U.S. team that stands on the hill, throwing grenades. It was like comets hitting the ground. the other part is, I love to snipe on the hill. Another one is this thing:

Thats what I try doing when I'm U.S.
Thats why I be squadleader that destination, so more people kill the MEC people in the Factory..

There is just as much opportunity if not more for the other kits than just the pkm and sniper. I can use a medic with the m16 a2 and pick off snipers and pkm users, I'm just not going to take a tank head on, I'll hide thanks!

And Karkand stays, because Its the only decent urban combat map besides warlord.

I don't think it's the best map, quite frankly, I'm damned sick of it.
