I have mixed feelings about this. I can see those Yellowstones being extremely annoying (much like the Danubes were when they first came out); but I have been thinking that there needs to be more ways of getting around Omega (which this could, if what I'm reading is correct), so part of me kinda likes this. Mind you, it's a very small part.
What about the people who don't have Omega?
The first we heard of getting new PvP maps "soon" was in August of 2010. We're consistently told something will be coming with the "next" update. Absolutely nothing has come to PvP since launch.
I think it's finally time Cryptic stopped stringing us along, don't you?
