Are there more maps with a castle or without one? How do you think presence/absence of a castle on a map affects gameplay? I think a castle, an imposing structure with venerable history, fills players with a sense of aesthetic inspiration and stimulates better gameplay.

All maps have a castle, it is the starting point for every map design.

Some are just cleverly disguised or hidden.

It's a secret, just don't tell people you heard it from me.

Same goes for bridges, by the way.

HD rocks are a lie.

They are a government cover up to hide alien spaceships.

Ha, castles... You amateur!

- Birds. Distraction conspiracy theory - for noobs to look the wrong way.

- Pumpkins. Nothing like going through the field and smashing them - stress relief and rage management.

- Scarecrows. Don’t get me even started on them - looking at you smiling cynically.

I am not alone?

 

What are your thoughts about the roundabout on one spawn of Paris?

Does it fill you with rage to drive through it asap?

Or those boxes in the middle of a cap point?

Castles? Nasty cold places. Come on WOT, how about more spa retreats. I am thinking infinity pools (with sniping spots), Jacuzzis, maybe an all night cocktail bars....

I like the construction works right next to the tower.

I hope you don't destroy the ammo boxes at cap point.

Without them you can't refill your ammo if needed.

Cap circles. Statistics show that 100% of captures happen inside the cap circle.

I believe this to be a problem WG should look into, just like HD rock.

They could place the cap circles inside the castles, that should fix it.

 

EDIT Also, can we get Minas Tirith already, that map is one huge castle! :P

I was just joking, its quite sad to smash them pumpkins. And all the moisture in them makes the tracks rust faster. :trollface:

Sometimes I drive between the smallest obstacles when driving far & slow gets boring.

And I always smash the boxes & tent and stuff near / in the cap if I am close enough, it can be useful if by any chance enemy decides to cap your base later.

Do not forget the gay open-air cafes of pre-war Paris.

 

I found the actual link that mentions them:

EDIT.. How about castles in the sky? Haven't spotted one yet.

I once capped against 3 SPGs, the box was still there.

So I shot it.

5 seconds later hell broke lose on that spot.

I still want a picture of their faces.

Actually, no. Castles are noob magnets. 

Derpenberg, assault, attack. Bots go left flank, camp castle. Time either runs out or they get slaughtered on bridge (which is an obvious choke point but hey let's go there anyway). Voila, defeat! 

Swamp, north spawn. Bots go castle, get rekt in sides by camping tds/mts/hts/everything. 

Then they proceed to getting slaughtered from hulldown position by enemy heavies. Viola, defeat! 

Serb pls remove Castles. I demand a Disneyland on each map.
