Well personally from what I've experienced so far I hate it. Half tempted to leave it every time I find myself in it at the moment.
That middle area is one gank area control that and you win the game. If your team is not in control as a sniper it's impossible to be able to help as soon as you set foot in it you're set upon.
As a sniper, I played the pylons more. Then had to run in when the burst came through. I stayed to the side until the last few seconds and ran in to the middle then cover pulsed and got 3 people with it.. Not sure that will work when people understand whats coming. lol
