The new HD kharkov should return in patch 1.5. Yesterday WG released a flyby video and an image of the mini map. The field looks interesting but the city fight is going to be a **** IMO!

To create more opportunities for different classes.

 

Because the developers think if the map is too close to reality, it doesn't make for a good game play!

 

As you can see, the map looked pretty much like the real Kharkov...

 

 

^ This is horseradish, i don't have a clue BUT the new one looks interesting! :)

Awkward map. I had some really good games on the former version, mixed with some really bad ones. Still, I liked it more than so many others...If you're not glued to a position you can do some really good work. Looking forward to playing this again, maybe I will see less of the likes Paris, Minsk and Ensk...

I think it looks great. :)

The old one was a meh for me but this looks more promising.

Im getting those sweet post-apocalyptic Moskau 2033 fibes

So they are bringing Kharkiv back but not Windstorm?

The latter being ever so marginally more interesting...

The western open area looks improved, I just hope there is enough cover so it isn't just a no go area. They appear to be making it easier to flank, looks promising. The original map was one of the better ones, no stupid rubble blocking entrances to the city/town like in Erlenberg which is very poor design. We can drive through wall, small house ( ie built structures ) but we can drive through loose rubble...

All the HD maps are worse than their SD counterparts. Why this remade Kharkov should be any different?!

Ughhhh. It seems the new Charkov has become a new "heavies go here", "mediums go there" and "TD you can sit on b8 and g8". 

 

When can Wargaming FINALLY created interesting maps that require a bit of flexibility?! Oh, wait. That's something from the past... :confused:

The old map was mostly fine. But it caused some odd lemming fails like Emperor's border is currently doing. As shown on the old heat map of it. The circle area they changed a few times to fix it. But it only made it slower IMO. Same with the field. It was benefiting South defending more vs when South pushed around the corner and up North. As they did not have the same easy TD overwatch spots they did, nor did many camp in that area vs South. As they did mention when removing it. So I'm curious to see how the new field is. Or if it will be like Ghost Town's new field that everyone will avoid.

When is it coming back, and have they removed rubble piles to hide TD's behind?

Bring back Swamp and Stalingrad while your at it too WG please

Gotta have those elevated TD camping positions with soft and hard cover each end of open field to punish any active play and have tunnelvision-tomatoes something to do....

steve does not like unexpected flanking so we all get screwed
