One of the better old maps used to be Komarin along with Swamp.

I mean in Komarin if you zoomed out enough of the map you could see a Moon. I guess thats pretty cool.

Haven't  played Komarin in classic yet, this map surely was fun, I do not agree that much with Swamp, it last iteration wasn't that balanced in my opinion; just rush the ennemy reach line with a super conq and  that was pretty much the game. Pearl River on the other hand was fun too (but I am not sure whether it already existed in 2011).

i actually liked both iterations of swamp, as it promoted aggressive game play and was very difficult to camp on it

 

ok i see why they removed it

Both were super campy and IIRC Swamp was unbalanced horribly after the final re-work, they both ended up being the team that pushes last wins maps.

 

I'd also think with the HD bushes, they would literally be unplayable as it was hard enough spotting people as it was on those maps with the old bush mechanics, especially Komarin where the campy forest corners you needed to be close to proxy spotting range to dig people out there, with the new OP bush mechanics from 1.0, those campy maps would be even worse IMO.

Shouldn't there be more to a post than posting a, presumably, 'controversial' view and ask for opinions on it (even if today's the day for silly topics)? Both maps went through quite drastic changes, and often for good reasons. A good start would be posting the minimap of the versions you would like to see return, to freshen up on memories (or open old wounds).

 

I'd love to see Swamp return, albeit with some changes in order to prevent it from being practically an 'Assault' mode map with the south defending (and having a generally easy time doing so). The later revisions of Komarin were practically the genesis of today's meta - sniping bushes covering the bases, that you can't really spot unless you made a suicide run. It would fit perfectly into the current WoT.

 

Edit: Come to think about it, Wargaming may have realized, finally, that recycling old maps and changing them is a terrible idea. It just ends up forcing them to stick to certain (often stupid) map concepts, and names that have 'history'. Remember, WG had to literally remake (not copy-paste, apparently) maps for 1.0. If it didn't carry over - fat chance you're going to see it again.

I used to like Northwest map where coincidentally there was a rush from both sides to take the north-west of the map as it had significant tactical importance.

I liked Swamp, the old one and the reworked one. But Komarin was pure trash, so bad. The 3 lanes were separated from eachother by water you could drown in. Both bases had hills that were covered by bushes. You got punished a lot for just playing. Arty cover was a joke too btw. In the final rework it was less bad as it used to be, but still bad.

Nothing wrong with Swamp, it promoted aggressive play and left campers pretty much screwed. Unfortunately that was the reason they got rid of it cuz bob's gotta camp.

Komarin Vol.1, funny map. I still remember one victory there April/May 2011 where I got 352 XP (already doubled AND premium bonus), because both teams entirely moved straight to the cap the other team's base. Nobody fired a single shot (well except maybe a screenshot from the results window) :teethhappy:

I don't think I have ever played on Komarin but I really liked Swamp. It was a nice map.

I know it is a lot of work to create maps, but it would be nice to have a few of the old ones pimped to today’s standards. Even if they are not symmetrical nor balanced and whatnot.

Komarin was rubbish but I actually liked Swamp a lot. I had some of my most fun matches there. I miss it, Sacred Valley too...

The early versions of Komarin were either camp the woods for 15 minutes or all rush cap combined with maybe a scout dying in the bridge to stop the enemy crossing.

 

Version on the 0.7.0 server is the second version with tank traps on the middle island to stop lights rushing it and spotting the whole enemy team.

 

Then they moved the cap zones so it became just a 15 minute camp.

Apparently, I do. Perhaps you'd like to pony up for that?

 

I can appreciate the low effort being put into a joke post, but it's hard to tell - this one reminds me of a certain other topic where someone made a topic after selling a tank they didn't like.

It's a joke day. Just agree to the universal principle of 1st April,when nothing is bound to be serious.

Never played Komarin but Swamp was so broken and unbalanced. I really liked the map but only when playing from the north team. They had really huge advantage in taking the east hill. South team would easly be spotted before raching the safe zone. Also the biggest inbalance was the Swamp itself. By rushing into the mid swamp zone, one could easly spot all the enemy snipers and win the game with some friendly support.

 

I really wish they redo the map in HD but also hope they will fix these inbalances.
