WG should make a japanese map, and that should be Okinawa. When the americans took that Island they could use wheeled tanks due to mud. Arty also was in caves so it was very hard to take em out. The new maps should replicate that.

And as an easter egg, there should be an old castle where people settle their decades old beef by karate matches to the death. Driving close to that castle may result in Mr. Miyagi doing a crane bird kick to your vehicle.

new maps sounds great provided that they are balanced and offer flanking opportunities that don't result in a TD removing all your HP with a single whiff of a HESH shell

yeah the map can be assualt only, though to be honest I always hoped there would be an assualt map mode on the Normandy map attacking up from the beach :trollface:

Taken from console. Not heard about it for ages, so I suspect WG ditched it. As it's the most one sided map ever on console. I have no doubt it would be as bad on PC.

Picture of Sherman flamethrowers attacking Japanese positions during the Battle of Okinawa

 

M8 Armoured car (referred to by the UK as "Greyhound" saw service on Okinawa and the Phillippines;

 

So an Okinawa ingame map would feature USA WV and flame throwers, is that right OP?

Okinawa isn't Japan though, its Ryuukyuu.

It was formally annexed by Japan in 1879.

Prior to that it was an "independent" kingdom.

Some topics invite negativity by being so bad they can be summed up in 2 words. I could dress it up nicely for you but I think "piss-poor"  does the job.

Okinawa was pretty much a featureless wasteland of mud with big hill so why would it make a good map?

If you want helpful comments don't come up with patently shite ideas. In another thread OP came up with a decent discussable idea. This wasn't one of them and I just opined as I found it. Just I will opine on any future ideas he may have (and I am sure he will)

Aren't you mistaking Okinawa for Iou-Tou some 1000km to the east of Okinawa?

Because Okinawa is fairly mountainous which are heavily forested.

"its Ryuukyuu."

 

Well Ryuukyuu too, how rude.   Surprised this wasn't caught by the rude word filter.  :teethhappy:

Quite possibly......But +1 for adding to the reasons it would be shite - lots of mountains.
