Should SkyVu add an option to toggle between the original BBU and new BBO versions of select maps?

Quick and easy poll based off of an idea I had.

What if SkyVu added an option in match customiztion to allow us to toggle between the original BB Ultimate and redesigned BB Overclock editions of Sky Pirates, NeoOmaha, Candyland, and Underworld?

The main reason I'm personally on board with an idea like this is because I heavily miss the original maps from BBU... like, incredibly heavily. I've had so many fond and fun memories on all of these maps and being able to relive them with the new BBO mechanics would be so refreshing, I'm still not entirely used to the redesigns of the maps. Don't get me wrong, the Candyland revamp was a major blessing because you can no longer spawn camp, but all of the others I really want to see return. The original BBU NeoOmaha in particular, to this day, remains to be my favorite map in all of BBU/BBP/BBO history, and the redesign personally doesn't live up to the same magic that the old version offered, I'll always miss being able to ride the blimp freely without abusing a rather hard glitch to get to it, and playing Hide and Seek on it with my friends. The new place just doesn't offer that much in comparison, as with most of the other maps, they're just shadows of what they used to be in my eyes.

For those of you who aren't aware of what the maps previously looked like, here are the best views I could get of them (major apologies for the pixelation, I got most of these off of the possibly only video still alive archiving the original BBU trailer):

So, what's the deal with you guys? How would you feel about this?

Neat idea, but maybe just do this for a few of the maps. (Specify in a response)

    the answer I picked isn't really how I feel. I kinda like the idea since the old maps were pretty fun but I think it should be added later on as the game grows since the game just got remade.

    Great idea, but this shouldn't be a priority for the next year or so. Please optimize BBO and BBG before moving onto projects like this.

    Wow I didn't play bbu so I didn't know that these maps existed before bbo.
    It would be great I guess :P But there are loads of other things to be taken care of first, like CLANS

    Let me just say something. We, do not, need Candyland's spawn again. Please.

    It's not that I think that your idea is bad, but I just think that here are more important things to work on.

    I found the old Underworld pretty enjoyable even though it was buggy, and the rideable hovercar in Neo Omaha was fun.

    No. SkyVu should make BBO current maps better. I want the old neo Omaha back, so SkyVu could maybe do a vote on which version of the maps community wants, and whichever version receives more votes, that's the version that stays/gets reverted too.

    I rdon't like your idea on this. First, there would be unnecessary maps that are only a little different than each other. Second, there's really no point of having two versions of the same map that are 5% different from each other (basically my first point repeated, but I gotta have a second point you know).

    And then this would make the game look unprofessional to new players since the newbies would think that SkyVu is a bad company and reuses maps (can't explain this well but you get the point).

    I think the voting for new maps would be the [much] better option.

    But I gotta admit, I liked the all of the older maps better, including candy land. Despite the candy land spawn kill issue, the way you could start from that opening was a great idea in my opinion. Maybe SkyVu could implement that again but have like 4-5 openings per each time spawn area (kinda like you could go to 4 different candy caves/pipes) and then it would be very hard for the opponent to know where you're coming from or just make it in a way that it's not broken.
