I wasn't, I just generalize your hatred towards custom maps as the norm of GoW players.

This issue for me isnt really "custom" maps I guess. The issue is the lack of a "standard". The Custom maps that are played now (pball, free whatever, etc) do not conform to any sort of set standards at all and thus they lack uniformity. When you lack structure, you lose all sense of competition because at that point, all you are doing is playing a "gimmick" map (xmarks comes to mind as a good example of a gimmick map, just ask Ganz, he think's he's god because he was once good with Xmarks lmao). I view the non-Kpud custom maps as more like Xmarks and very gimmicky that does not breed any competition/skill. For customs of today, once you know the "gimmick", you get a false sense of "skill" simply because you do better than others. But thats the whole point of a gimmick map. You dont need skill to do great with them, you just need to know what the gimmick is and able to perform it.
If there were some standards that were adhered to, then I'd be more apt to view them as viable maps. Until such time, ya, no they shouldnt be acknowledged
