Not much bashing as much as stating the facts (that were discussed at lenght in other threads).
How can i put this? Hmmm…
Well, the old map was changed for reasons we don’t know and can only speculate about, it could be technical reasons as the Underworld was introduced, it could as well just be for the fact the devs don’t have the same artist of the previous map still working with them anymore so as they would need a new map it would be obviously too different.
The thing is, the current map at least uses the same style/elements so it could be a “practical fix” for the time being¹ until they have a better looking and optimized map, that may or may not come from the hands of the artist who made the Delve Maps as you wish.
I think it would offer a more clear vintage looking, something that could be considered.
¹ Developers time = Human years. Players time = Dog years. So an year or more for the devs is not so much as it is for the players.
