Has some WoT YTer made a video about Sand River recently? All year it was one of the biggest camp-off map with lights trying to do some spotting and every one else sniping. But today every game ALL heavy and medium tanks rush the river bed in the  middle and the lights stay at the back and try to get some shots in. It all completely changed overnight or is it just me having weird battles?

What, like picking the name of a Nazi war criminal and thinking you are being original?

I stopped playing assault games because of the sniping/camping mentality of a lot of players, particularly on sand river. If the gameplay style has changed then it can only be a good thing, 

 

Not a bad idea to rush the middle but people will be reluctant to push into the enemy and take shots, this will created a nice kill zone in the river bed.

That ridge in the middle was such a stupid addition to Sand River, ruins Assault by making it like 65% win rate for the defenders and then becomes a complete noob trap in the other modes.

Can't say I seen things change tbh. I do go to the riverbed alot in certain tanks, simply because they can't hulldown in any shape or form  & then riverbed is the place to go. But on most of my other tank, I tend to go somewhere else, as riverbed is more a place you go to to distract the enemies away from the rest of the team.

I think it was just completely random that three of my Sand River assault games in the row everyone rushed the river. It was bizarre but didn't last. I had that map a lot last night and it all went back to normal later  :)

Would 'like' but I'm all out of positives.

Unfortunately, there are a good few people who see the words 'German' & 'WWII' and automatically assume the worst.

It's a shame really, but they do say that ignorance is bliss.

Less the ridge, more making it traversable and climbable, which as you note makes it a trap.

Not that it stopped some people before...

Remember that if we went to the Moon, is thanks to Von Brown Sarurn launcher. 

He may have worked for nazi building V2, but the contribution to umankind progress greatly overweight this.

Tsiolcoskiy, Von Brown and Korolev are arguably the 3 person we should thank more if we have all the technology we use today, that mostly came from space exploration.

 

Edit:

On topic, I think that pushing is the only way to win in assault mode, especially pushing the north. Unluckily, it's hard to convince player to help you in the process...
