[edited]that position. 

 

Everybody and their mother was crying a while ago about boosting, especially that skinny little latvian and his mom. But now here comes a new map with a boost position that requires no boosting? [edited]off.

Same kind of position on the other side of the carrier too. And it's not boosting if you can just drive up there. There's no bushes or hulldown cover there so it's really not as OP as you make it out to be. And you can't shoot all the way to the south where a lot of the close range fighting takes place.

Isn't a boost position that you can reach without boosting simply called a "position"? :unsure:

And I thought proper boosting required someone to push you rather than just climbing.  But that position just requires you to drive there.

That area is super strong at dealing with tanks on that entire side of the map.
To good? Probably.

Valid effort, but way too obvious.

 

...you do realize that positon is completely useless apart from spotting enemies? :facepalm: The angles are too steep to depress your gun and fire.

Actually you can do that, even with tanks with low gun depression, but you can only hit.the F6 area.

The problem is that if you made your way up there, then D4-E5 are not really guarded, and at most there is just 1-2 guys trying to spot on F6, which you can also hit .... it generally means that the other side has lost center control and the game is probably lost.

 

Whoever manages to climb up there must be dealt with quickly.

Well if you're not getting killed driving up then you'll lose what's left whilst enjoying the view. Have not yet tried it myself though, only been on the farming side from mid.

It's pretty simple actually. Just go to this position and you can basically pick off anyone who wants to get there when you spawn south.

Go to the rock at F5 if you spawn north. There's a big bush you can shoot anyone who tries to go the the road in the west or over the field and also shoot anyone who dares to move up that ramp.
