I know it is early. But it is utter trash. Ok there never has been a tank battle on ice as far as I know. And there is good reason which does not need discussion even apart from the total exposure to flanking fire. That leaves left and right wings with no cover. And no cover to defend spawn. So just why?

Hidden village was the worst.

Might be one of those maps where there's only one sensible route... E.g the south east area?

 

Only played it once so far!

Maybe you are the worst?  :P

 

I kind of like it. I mean not every map has to be a corridor city map....

To early to tell. But it's not looking good so far. Seen it 6 times or so. Every time it's the same thing. One team push the middle. The other camps the red line on the 6-7 line and never move much. It's looking to be the next Dragon ridge if anything. It's a great looking map. But I suspect once most learn the map. It's all about the east side, and ignore 90% of the map as that's a kill box.

Really dreadful. I have played it 4 times today, all were not at all balanced or fun. Got it in my E75 as top tier (3/5/7) with 3 arty a side (2 T9 ones), you can imagine how fun that game was...

Had it once or twice, both times from the north .... the few battles i saw on youtube of it have generally been from the south.

Both times i was on it, my team gave up the middle which had some very conveninent areas where enemy could go hulldown and kill us.

 

I'm not liking it so far, but i'll have to play it more to see if it's unbalanced.

​The path on the side going around made me think of Pearl River. I like this map. I can spot and drive in snow. And it's not Paris. Or Pilsen.

Don't like it much either, artillery beat the life out of me once I played this map.

I love it. Go straight middle, use turret and view range. Shoot campers and passing people, then support whatever side you want. Didn't get shot by arty, had great results in battles. Really enjoyed it. Looks amazing too.

I always end up with a team camping in the side road behind the trees and bushes and some brave light tanks dying in middle in the first 20 seconds and some enemy TD sniping from the base to our base.

 

From my 4-5 games on this map experience, it is a camping/sniping map. Very few action on it.

This map was not graced with the bliss of balance.

I do not know about others but i kind of like it. Lots of room in the mid and plenty of cover to hide behind when spotted. And then there are the corridors for people who like that sort of thing.

As long as Paris exists no map shall claim the title of ''Worst Map WG Ever Made''.
