    I agree.

    Could someone post the text from the TV Guide? I sort of hope it's a misinterpretation: i.e. it actually says: "the racers will not be allowed to acquire maps", meaning they can only use the maps provided by the producers (which would be fine)

    I still just don't like not having maps at all.

    OMG that is SO wrong!!! I don't think I like this new change. Being able to use maps was a reward for teams that took the time, energy, and money to do their homework and look up stuff. Maps SHOULD be allowed!! :mad:
    This would also be especially bad if teams don't know where they're going so they ask other teams and another team could sabatoge them and tell them bad directions. I think this stinks because I don't like alliances in TAR, save it for Survivor. Alliances just don't work in a race. And now they're all going to share information! :mad:

    Well, I'm glad to see that someone else dislikes it as much as I do.

    I just truly feel it's fundamentally unfair.

    I don't think teams who don't speak any foreign languages will have much of a disadvantage here, even without maps. All they'll have to do is tail the foreign-speaking teams, then try to outrun them once they're near the pitstop. Or they could learn the Way of the Cha, the fountain of travel and shopping wisdom: convince a local schoolgirl who speaks English to play hooky and serve as their guide/translator.

    Hmm, I like the idea of the map thing becuz it doesnt really matter to some teams that cant read maps anyways like millie and chuck > , but still that language advantage thingy seems unfair,,, oh well
