Funny note: I got the original picture from a News post on the WOT site called: Level Design Improvements: My Sweet Fjords.

This map is so unbalanced it isn't even fun anymore. At the lower tiers it's okay because everyone has bad viewrange, but it's hell on the high tiers.

1 tank on the hill in the middle gives the red team basicly the whole of the top of the map, except for the lowered position, but those are useless because there's not much you can do against a hull down tank on the little hill... The red team automaticly wins the top right valley, because no one crosses there anymore because of the mid hill snipes, and if they make it they get in a crossfire because if they drive to far up they get shot from the mid hill, and infront of them the enemy has a position to peek from whereas the green tank has nowhere to hide. For the green team this part has become like Amsterdam-southeast, a No-Go-Zone. The only thing there's left for the green team is to go to what used to be the heavy corner, but now is the Light-Med-Heavy-TD corner. Fjords has never been my favorite map, especially because of the camp games during CW, but wow I don't understand how this map could ever get so much worse....

Its better question on what drugs he (or she) was?... Because its so "balanced" that green team can win only if red team is full of bots... Few decent players on red side that knows to drive tanks on that ridge, and game is over for green side...

At least we know he took a smaller dose than the guy redesigning Erlenberg. That map makes me want to alt-F4...

In comparison with the current Fjords I think we can now officially re-designate the old Fjords as a great map with no faults at all.

Not impressed. I can't seem to enjoy this map at all any longer. Just got massacred again there. I am not sure about the east/west balance. It was 6/1 to the west when I got killed.

Nah. I don't mind Erlenberg too much. Fjords is indeed very unbalanced. Province is obviously completely unsuitable for tier 8+.

Province is like Ensk, but with far more bushes that provide nice cover for camping TDs, and all those who behave like camping TD with Heavy like Maus... But on both maps you can win from both sides...  Fjord is just plan retarded, and if your spawn on "bad" side, you can just pray that enemy is stupid enough to ignore at last one flank that cover mid...

Could it be the same idiot who designed Glacier.

 

 

I HATE THIS MAP!

Erlenberg is semi playable now. Before people always used to just go 9-0 when you spawned on south and was basically lost from the start

What annoys me the most in Erlenberg is the camp sites behind the bases. These should at least be level so when the campers are spotted they can be shot. Now they duck behind hard cover and have to be dug out. When you are in a slow tank the deathzone before digging them out is way too big.

 

Edit: what also annoys the sh!t out of me is the rubble in the streets. Why not have a few lanes open so you can at least change corridor without driving all the way back?

My list from worst is:

Province
Paris
Overlord
Erlenberg

These four really makes me to consider an immediate return to garage.

While Fjords may be unbalanced, I do no see it as a big problem. Most players do not know that the hill is the key. Also you can usualy spot the spotter and kill him.
I would change those four maps for Fjords every time.

Yeah, this map really aspires as the most idiotic "improvement" in WoT. The old one was not perfect, but it was playable. Here you can only camp or go hurr durr in the middle corridor. Neither is fun.

Derpenberg got the same treatment as Fjords. Some designer took "flatten the maps a bit" too literally.

In the old version I used to drive to center of the map and have either a very good or very bad game. New version I just drive to the middle and have a bad game.

My game time is limited, I don't intend to camp bush 75% of that time. But with current camping meta moving is just a frustrating way to get yourself killed.

I can barely remember the old Fjords, but i wish they would just bring the old maps back, rather than inundate us all with premium tanks every week, and that comes from a serial premium buyer:amazed:

I don't get it.  Most of you guys like to boast about how drugs use is good.  Surely  what's good for the goose is good for the gander?
