I may be in the minority here, but Blizzard has yet to make a Capture The Flag map I like. Probably it's the Capture The Flag gameplay itself I dislike. Because of this, Twin Peaks is my second least favourite BG (Arathi Basin is my favourite). My least favourite BG? WSG, of course.

You are not alone. The people that hate WSG and WSG II hate it a LOT. I take the deserter debuff every time this pops up in random BG. I'd rather pour hot AIDS in my eye than do another WSG. I dunno, maybe it's simply because these are the only two BG that are almost guaranteed to run the complete time limit and end 0/0 flags for both sides always.

What is your favorite? Mine is Eye of the Storm. I dislike the Battle for Gilneas because it's over in the first 3 minutes, SO hard to cap something there once it's taken.

Arathi Basin is my favourite. I prefer it to BfG because AB has clear lines of sight to other nodes, and more of them. With BfG forces are more concentrated and nodes switch hands less often. EotS is OK - certainly I dislike it a lot less than the pure Capture The Flag maps - but the addition of the flag renders it more complex, and so you're less likely to find a pug capable of playing in it effectively. Nodes go undefended as people pursue the midfield and the flag, or armchair generals yell at you for going mid when both sides have two defended bases and the flag is what'll make the difference between them. I'm less fond of Isle of Conquest (vehicle mechanics, bleh), Alterac Valley (competitive PVE rather than PVP these days, and nobody defends worth a damn) and Strand of the Ancients (vehicle mechanics again).
