Generally, I love the new update. Kudos to you Wargaming. The only stupid thing that I have noticed so far, and it is a HUGE stupid thing, is that you decided to remove the red marker that shows the borders of the map. The person who decided to do that made a huge dumb mistake. I get the reason behind it, it is to trick players into feeling like there are no borders to the maps, but in reality it affects gameplay. When you scout or play really intense, you don't have time to see if you are close to the border, on the radar down in the corner. I got killed or badly damaged numerous times so far because I thought I could go more left or right and then hitting the invisible wall...

 

BRING BACK THE RED MARKER FOR MAP BORDERS.

 

It is idiotic.

 

Thank you.

Have you checked the settings?

Go to the tab on the far right side and use the extra highlighted setting.

It should probably be on by default, or at least somewhat consistent. According to Reddit, some had it on by default, others off. No real reason why.

The new options in the settings are even highlighted...

You should always check those after major updates.

Look who's talking. :trollface:

 

You can adjust how you want to see the map border in the settings...what player DOESN'T check all the settings after a big new patch? :facepalm:

Weird, it was still there for me. Didn't have to activate anything.

Was deactivated by default for me. Seems random.

Not on by default for me which caught me out when I tried to back up and thought what’s going on here then.

Same here but there seems to be a bug where you change one setting and it changes something completely unrelated.

 

I changed a couple of graphical settings, motion blur and something else then when I went back to the general tab it had ticked the hide unhistoric elements.

Why OP? Are you struggling to see where you need to go camp?

Given the number of irritating things that are 'default' when opening 1.0 for the first time I'm surprised anybody can play the game without going through the settings with a fine toothed comb.

Go in the setting, it has even vertical spotlights now, much harder to miss than the red line :girl:

The border should be replaced with a contiguous billboard, promoting key WG concepts such as "fire more gold".

Really someone likes it!? One of the first things a checked in options. I hate it and it looks so stupid. I understand if you are still learning maps, but after that i highly recommend to remove it, the maps looks even better without the red barrier.

Hmmm it does seem a bit inconsistent, not sure why. I agree that it should be enabled by default. I'll let the devs know. :)
