I think the problem with Italy is the time that get added on the timer when the truck past certain stages of the map. i wouldn't mind a couple of minutes being added but the original timer is already at 30 minutes....
it does get impossible for axis to win and the map just become a long agony for them being stuck at their original spawn point.
i used to hate Italy, now i like how you can fight a lot and get kills on it. I use to quit on the map, now i stay and endure for the sake of fragging lol. It can be good if teams are balance and no one get stuck on one stage. (i guess its the case for any map out there)
isn't their like other versions of Italy with a modified first spawn for axis?
