Has anything been said about when they will be available on the live server? I have heard Christmas? Hope this is true.

 

I did play these on the test sever and they feel like new maps. They are very good.

Maybe Christmis but that seems unlikely.

 

E1: I dont know if there is a second iteration of the Sandbox going on right now. But for now only 10 maps were tested.

My guess is early 2018.

Christmas is a bit early but I wouldn't call it impossible.

Nah, there is no more testing of the HD maps. That was an official post on the sandbox forum.

they still have to test the other maps that weren't on the sandbox that time, which suggest there will be future sandboxes for those maps..

 

I wouldn't expect the HD maps in their entirety to be done until atleast mid 2018, if not later

For what HD maps are bringing to the game for existing players, it's simply too fudging long.

Over the course of a year we got one new map - for grand battles - and some emergency fixing of certain climbing spots. The latter is when I realized that it'll take even more time than Wargaming anticipated. Bothering to fix the climbs after, supposedly, HD maps were in the works for 8-9 months (probably more) is a bad sign.

Were the maps coming in the same update as the Death Star switch ?

They have never been tied to any other change but I would imagine it will finally be an end to version 0.9.x and the next patch has already been referred to as 0.9.21 by WG staff.

No clue, I don't really see a connection between the two. I guess I could find out but I'd not be allowed to share it anyway so no point.

We'll simply have to wait and see what comes next on test server.
