They need to remove Prokhorovka/Fiery Salient or give it more arty cover. As a heavy tank driver on Prokhorovka with arty in the game all you can do is slowly get shat on.. No fun. Especially in ranked.

 

Wow, so you have ONE map where you're shat in your heavy (or two if you count Malinovka too). Wanna guess how many that kind of maps there is for light tanks? It's perfectly fine that lights can "dominate" (like they could camosnipe with puny pen nowadays) on few maps too.

I agree. The shittiest map of all time is Prokhorovka. By far. It's camper's paradise and you can be sure that if you get spotted arty will screw you over. Why? NNNOO CCOOOVVEEERRRR.

So what happened literally 2 minutes ago was that the enemy had arty + 5 camping TD's in the south corner. We had some random tanks but it doesn't matter. No one gets even close. You can't go to the cap circle. Nothing. We didn't have scouts or other fast tanks or tanks with armor. Skorpion G can pen any tank that wants to close in on them in tier 7-8 match.

So... what were the choices? There we sat for 7 more minutes and the game resulted in draw because no one could literally do anything else than just sit in their bushes. "Yay". I wasted [edited]7 minutes just trying to get an angle without being raped by 5 TD's and an arty at once.

EDIT: You don't really attack or scout with Comet

Must be the maps fault.

There's a secret way to reduce your chances of getting Prok or Mali.... Play a light tank

I'm waiting your glorious plan how previously mentioned match could have been won. I'm sure you can outplay any situation in WoT as you are a super-unicum. 5 TD's in bushes, an arty and no cover when approaching. Come on, don't be shy. Tell us all your master plan.

EDIT:

If I remember correctly they had Skorpion G, Challenger, Strv S1, UDES 03 + random TD and M12 in the lower left corner.

We had my Comet, Tiger P and SU-100 + 2 other tanks (T-34-85 or some sort) and no arty. As you can't advance from the direction of the railway/cap circle (because it's 100 % flat with no cover) I doubt I could outspot anything through the bushes in the 1-2 line (come on.. Strv S1 and UDES 03 camping in the bushes. How do you outspot them?). Also, if I got spotted I'd be dead within 1 second. Everytime I tried to peek-a-boo tactic over the ridge line in the center (trying to get in the middle of ridges) and 2-3 line I got spotted and then splashed by arty. One of our tanks tried to YOLO spot through the bushes in 2 line but got two shot without spotting anyone.

Still waiting for that game winning move.

So sad About the removal of some great Maps like mittengard, Stalingrad, kharkov & co. Those were heavy Maps and fun to Play! heavys are useless now in the current map rotation

Not sure you really mean Mittengard - that was the T1 small map 

I do sometimes find myself fondly reminiscing the days of Sacred Valley and Windstorm...

I have not missed any of the maps that went with 1.0 but I disagree with the removal of Sand River Assault. That I do miss. No matter the spawn.

I'm so happy that Stalinhrad and Narrowpark were removed. But why Highway, Swamp and Windstorm?! While keeping the Malinovka?! I miss playing those three maps. Even Mittengard but I guess kid tiers needed better maps.

WGs description of `re-work` is different to ours, In their language it means FUBAR.

Any map removal is sad.

I undestand that the otp will relish in running to his dear spots, and cry about the maps not to his liking ... but all I want is diversity.

I play all five types of tank and really don't care if the map / side is in my favor. This is weak and selfish.

Tier 2&3 on that map were fun!
