Ok 1st I haven't played either as I'm on ps3 but everyone has complained bout how small the maps are. I'm a run n gunner usually but I enjoy sniping too so I like the idea of a big map . Were catered for in terms of small maps so I hope liberation is really big .
If you never snipe you'll probably hate it regardless . I'm keeping an open mind about them . The devs must think they can't win with us. In saying that I'm also aware that being huge doesn't mean its automatically going to be any good . Here's hoping my experience of it is the opposite of yours

There isn't one big map in MW3 so I welcome the change of pace. In MW2, I really enjoyed the options of long-range battles the maps offered (not to mention the better guns), but since BLOPS, the out-the-box maps have been consistently small.
I'm guessing that's on purpose -- most casual players are going to enjoy the smaller maps, while those who are more than casual will not only appreciate a larger map but also be willing to pay for DLC. I know this isn't BF, but there's more to the game than run & gun. A "strategic" map != "boring" map. Plus, I've always noticed that the first few days of playing a new map seems slow, as everyone is getting a feel for them. I'm sure the pace will soon quicken.
Anyway, welcome, big maps! I'll see you in a month on my PS3

Both are pretty great maps in my opinion.
I only played Liberation in HQ Pro, so I don't know if that made the people more concentrated, but it seems like it'll be awesome for objective modes (especially HQ). The color scheme of the map is great and I personally welcome the size of the map.
I only played Piazza on Domination so far also, but that was also great. Much smaller than Liberation obviously, but it's very fast paced and vertical.

Well, Liberation doesn't seem that good at directing players toward...well...anything, it plays like a sandbox and I don't think it suits the CoD playstyle that well.
..that being said, opinion is opinion. I welcome any discussion.
