As can be seen here in English version: http://wiki.wargaming.net/en/Maps Overlord is in regular mapcycle.

But, Russian version says that Overlord has been removed: http://wiki.wargamin...t/ru/Карты_(WoT)

Any thoughts?

I personally don't like this map, so I would prefer Russian version myself :D

Should this one be removed or not?

Damn, it's probably because someone leaked the secret to winning overlord every time...

Spoiler

Well, if you ignore the beach, then overlord is an enjoyable, dynamic map with lots of options and different scenarios. Unlike 80% of the other maps. So if you're unimaginative then sure, remove it and go back to the majority boringashell corridor maps.

"Well, if you ignore the beach, then overlord is an enjoyable, dynamic map with lots of options and different scenarios." - Agreed with this one 100%. But I don't like that idiot magnet which developers put in beach... As Ziurawka noticed, magnet is very strong :D It is capable of pulling top tier heavies on the beach and holding them in one place :D

I usually scream "GAY BEACH PARTY!!!" at the start of an overlord match... and sometimes the results are diametrically opposed.

While not the best map, Overlord is certainly not the worst. If it has been removed from the RU server it is probably because IS-7 drivers are getting flanked too often on it and moaned to WG that their stronk tenks were being killed by inferior capitalist machinery.

 

On the other hand if WG are looking for suggestions of maps to delete from the game Karkov, Pilsen and Paris spring to mind, these maps make Overlord look like a masterpiece (heck they make Hidden Village look like a Masterpiece).

I would like to see an Overlord with one side spawning inland, and the other on the beach.

After a few games trying to attack off the beach up narrow, overlooked gullies, it may cure the sandcasle warriors from voluntarily going there on the normal map.

I usually start with: "All idiots go valley, beach, corridor A, corridor B"...you name it. 

And when they do...: "And there they go again..."

I actually like Overlord, and Pilsen.. Stalingrad en Paris however is dispise, a map just isn't any good if you have 2 totally isolated fights going on without being able to really getting to the other flank in time to influence the outcome.

I have mixed feelings about Paris

 

Just noticed your Cards Agaisnt Humanity sig - oh boy what a fun card game. Got it out at Xmas and my dad (76) refused to play it due to it being "crass childish derogatory humour". My Auntie (72) just kept saying "boner" infront of my 8 year old neice without a clue as to what it meant and the rest of us made some horrendous mash-ups. what fun!

The map is jsut stupid though....

Not only that there is the noobtrap the beach, but also the ridiculous camping spots make the map nearly unplayable. It would need a massive overhaul to be any decent, but I guess at this point its easier to just make a new map and trash the old one.

Yep. Paris is something that is far worse than Overlord. Komarin was much better than Paris, can't remember why they removed it...

I really like Overlord,

you can push down one entire flank without taking too much fire,

the central square is both crucial and open to counter by fast tanks,

you can progress without getting pinned down by TDs

 

The beach is a bit pointless although it is arty safe I think, end game is always destroying whoever went down there at the start and they've always had zero effect

 

That huge clunky bunker thing needs to go, maybe a small village in that spot would be more interesting to play through

Overlord is one of the better map in the pool. The maps I would much rather see go include: Mines and Tundra the top of the list.
