Sure, some of them look(ed) fine, like Mannerheimin Linja and Windstorm, but take Erlenberg for example. The old spring version with light snow was visually pleasing, but every time I get the new total winter one, I wish I could play it with my eyes closed. The whiteness on this map is ugly, depressing. Am I alone in thinking so?

They should apply realistic visuals for Mannerheim Line at least, make it pitch black like it is here over the winter. Then it's truly depressing and you get to know how it feels to be a Finn.

Not alone.

 

I would also love to see a clone of the map with the snow on fire.

 

Would look visually appealing

I agree, Erlenberg looked better back then...actually I could say that for many maps, not just judging the visual quality, but the atmosphere.

 

Cliff was dark and gloomy, now it's bright and sunny...almost too bright.

 

I want more "stormy" maps, or if WG really puts their back into it, they could implement RNG into the weather system of each map, i.e. make it so that for one battle on the map you play in clear weather, but in the next one there's a storm looming over the horizon, blocking the sun...

 

Add some variety, I'm bored. Ideally add rain and wind effects.

 

It actually rains on Minsk already, you'll notice tiny raindrops if you look closely, but it's very light rain.
