Great! Prokhorovka/Fiery Salient, Malinovka and Sand River are three of the very best maps in the game. 

 

That's why they have artillery, you're not allowed to enjoy the few good maps in the game.

 

It's a bit sad they will get rid of Swamp entirely, I liked how it played out before they redesigned it with sticking the mandatory castle on it. They could just have removed the soft terrain in the middle and make it more viable instead of a no mans land.

Malinovka problem: 

1) team dies during 1st min.

2)The hill on corner is dominated by tanks with good gun depression and good turret armor.

3)Arty keep firing on hil no protection on hill.

4)if u just got height tank and by mistake you are on little left side there u go holes in.side of tank got shots from down the hill.

 

Sand river: 

1)not a map for heavy tanks dont know where to go.

 

For Malinovka "problems":

1. Team dying in the first minute is not a map problem. It's a team problem, if you know what i mean.

2. So is any other hill in the game.

3. Arty has no place in the game, regardless of map. It should be completely removed and again, that's not a map problem.

4. Don't go there then?

 

As for Sand River, in my opinion there are plenty of places for heavies to go. In fact, this is exactly what makes these maps the best ones - there's nice playground for any tank class. Except for artillery, of course, this broken mechanic being the factor which ruins the gameplay on all of them. Maps like Malinovka, Prokhorovka, Sand River, Steppes are a joy to play in any class if there is no arty in the game and horrible if there is.

Swamp is nice in Tier 6-7-8, absolute ebola when there are Tier 9 and 10s.

Widepark should be only for tiers 3-5

Kharkov is ebola in Tier 8-9-10

Highway is ebola in Tier 8-9-10

Windstorm is ebola in Tier 8-9-10

Stalingrad is ebola in Tier 8-9-10

 

Maybe they should balance the high tier tanks properlyinstead of removing maps? All these maps are perfectly fine in mid tier matchups, Tier 5-7. 

 

 

There isn't a single map in the game, which is good for full tier 10 games.

 

It's because the maps are too small, everyone has accurate guns and very good view range.

Redshire, Murovanka, Overlord, Malinovka, Erlenberg are alright

 

However, i agree for the rest of maps. WT sized maps would have been brutally good in full tier 10 games

Yeah, if you can't balance tanks, just remove more maps. Nice logic once again by WG.

Wish atleast, they would add some of old maps back to game, i remember couple nice map that removed back then, would fit their game more now.

Because it is actually a better map than most think? There is enough cover in the North to make it interesting.

Nice they remove all 6 good maps now the chances for malinovka,firey slient and sand river. 99.9 percent you will be seeing these useless map.

 

Steve's here everybody, doesn't like maps where people might have the chance of shooting him from more than 50m away. 

 

----------------------------------------------

 

I feel Swamp maybe could have been saved, though it's had at least one if not two re-works previously but still is a map that has options for most maps, it's just unbalanced at the moment, fix the north team rushing that ridge it would be ok I reckon.

 

Windstorm, Stalingrad, Kharkov and Sacred Valley are all awful, shame Paris, Abbey, Mountain Pass, aren't added to this list and Ensk/Mines aren't being made tier 6 only like Widepark. 

 

Hope the Highway re-make fixes the north team's clear advantage in base camping/defending and makes more of the map more used because currently the majority of the fighting happens in two corners of the map.

This was already discussed, Windstorm can't be removed because races take place there. I suggest we remove Arctic Region instead.

Artic region is savable I reckon, if they make it less easy to camp base it could be an ok map. 

 

All maps should be in the client anyway so you can select them in the training rooms.

I think the issue is that the map would have to be made HD to work in the new client which seems pointless for just a training room map. The impression I have is that it's impossible to have old and new maps in the client at the same time.

Take out Stalingrad, Kharkov, Paris and all those city maps and give back Dragon Ridge, Pearl River and Severogorsk. And/or make more non-city maps, as tank battles' usual environment usually was/is not the cities. Not to mention that they are ugly.

Less maps = less for the wonderfully talented newer "dumbed down" players to learn.
