Arguably all DayZ players know Chernarus, the first and biggest map for DayZ. But what seems huge in the beginning, isn't huge anymore. Assumed you played it a while. For most players Chernarus is like a second home and new alternative DayZ maps couldn't hype as much as Chernarus does. Replacing fir with palms or arrange buildings differently hasn't made a Chernarus killer. The numbers of players on alternative DayZ map servers are showing this issue obviously. These shiny new maps get played when they are new, but most players return to Chernarus shortly after.
