The problem with ammo boxes in LTS/TDM is it becomes a place for a team to camp and spam throwables, particularly fire pots. This is why they were removed in the first place.
There’s a refill timer on ammo boxes, you know this right? How can you “spam” throwables with a 15second refill?
15 seconds between volleys of throwables from your entire team isn’t that much.
It was also completely horrible in FFA especially.
Refill timer is across all players, no? At least it seems that way in TO.
The real issue for me is the lack of consistency.
Some maps have ammo crates, some don’t.
Some versions of some maps do, some versions don’t.
If the refill timer is shared by all players in the match I don’t see a problem with every map having at least 1 crate located in a tactically poor location.
