Why do you think Arctic is a popular map while all the other stock maps have failed to remain popular, even though they have had similar 32 player tweaks made to them?
There also aren't any over powered vehicles to ruin it
I agree, if you want to ruin a map, add OP vehicles.
Arctic has hilly terrain so you can avoid getting tanked; this map generally does really well at stopping tank campers. Also there are a total (I think) of 3 tanks on the map - 2 Goliaths/Goliath/Golyi (1 per team) and a paladin at the centre. This is plenty for the map size.
The absence of badgers is a massive plus as they are retardedly OP, and spider mines are few and far between.
Distances are not so large as to deter people from walking which is a huge pro as this means the numbers of vehicles is kept reasonable. Lastly, all weapon lockers are full - something which really should be the norm.
