A few facts, since people seem to be confused:
1. As of right now, the ONLY bunkers taken out of the curret design (both PSP & MS), is the 6 2011 giant beams - all other bunkers stay.
2. The new beams and angles have the same heigh as the 2011 beams, they are just narrower and shorter in length
What I think:
At the first event, they will try out this new snake design, the way it is intended.
Everyone will get shot easy over the top, and running them down will become way easier too.
Snake players will get focussed 90 % down the wire, because their only purpose becomes to get to the end of the snake, to shoot people in the back.... anywhere earlier in the snake, has become pointless.
The D side becomes way more dominant than before, and the field sides are no longer balanced.
After the first event, they will realise their mistake, and start putting cakes and Mini As in the snake again.
There is ONE advantage to these new bunkers:
Once they realise they need the knuckles in there still, they will try to justify the existence of the angles by making weird snake shapes, like an M shape or a diamond.... like it used to be in Hyperball - and those shapes WILL mix up the game a litte more
As for field owners: Sucks to be you - it's crazy that the leagues keep doing this crap
As for getting shot through gaps: There are still gaps there, only now, they are not covered by a knuckle, so anyone cross the field can blast away at the gap between the beams.
