That's not abusing the map, it's PvPing. Ya know, what the map is actually designed for.
I think it can go either way. If people want to run the virus, that's fine, and it adds some cool tactical gameplay to the match. On the other hand, people that enjoy GPvP purely for the fighting are going to run the kill count, because Assault offers a longer match of actual PvP than the arenas.

What's really annoying is when the match is clearly moving towards one or the other, and people don't adapt and go with it. If the other team is constantly running the virus, but you just stay on the bridge trying to fight, that's no good. Similarly, if everyone in the match is just in a bridge battle, but you keep grabbing the virus and running towards death while contributing nothing else, that's no good either. Sure, the point of the map is technically to run the virus, but if it turns out to be just a deathmatch, so what?
