    New map looks like gloomy cartoony blob

    I rarely care about cosmetic things in games, but the new conquest map i like much less than the old one. Especially the chaos side is just gloomy bland cartoony and has less focus on detail than prebious map. I cant quite undertstand how this is supposed to be an improvement at all. Do people really prefer this style over something more realistic?

    I feel like it looks more...muddy, I guess? I dunno, the last one has this beautifully-detailed Greek architecture, and this new one feels more like stepping into a painting.

    I like this newer style as its a throwback to the original map designs, plus I like games that are in this type of art style.

    S2-S4 Conquest just looked like a garden park, nothing jungle about it at all.

    I'll tell you what I don't really understand about it.

    Put simply, Hi-Rez spend all sorts of time remodelling characters to make them look less cartoony, then go right ahead and make their redesigned conquest map look like something out of Fortnite.

    A strange decision aesthetically as now there are more humanized characters walking on a map that resembles a Skittles party being held in a G-force training pod. Bright colours just plastered everywhere.

    Take some getting used to.

    They did the ol' switcheroo on us.

    It does get confusing at times.

    I like it because it feels way more surreal than what S2-S4 maps were trying to go for...but it feels way too playdoh-y. Way too artificial, for lack of a better term.

    I wish the Chaos Side had a bit more of a gloomy air to it, tbh.
    I'm pretty much trying to reclaim my lost ELO and sticking to a few gods rn. Mostly playing Cern and maybe Daji.

    If you ask for balance changes on a god without a reason that can be properly justified, then this is the place to train for persuasion.
