I have really no positive feeling toward this map, i mean, it's all around a bad map for every class.

I saw a post about the map checks and i saw quite a few people that chose to exclude Empire Border from the mm too lol

 

I still don't get why we needed this map, it's literally a waste of time everytime you play it, and even in game my teammatesdon't say kind things about it when they play it.

 

Let asian maps to asian players and let us enjoy our version and our maps XD

If anything they should bring back Pearl River which was at least kinda fun to play for everyone.

 

I know it's just a rant but hey, everyone does the same about not important things too so....

I'm fine with it, there's easily five other maps I dislike way more and a whole bunch that I consider not better.

I don't know anybody who likes this map. I don't like it either. Too much one sided battles there and it's decided by luck which team divides his forces in a better way.

I just think as others put it that it is bearable and there are far worse maps like Ensk, Paris, Minsk, new Abbey etc.

For WOT standards it mediocre.

 

For overall map standards within gaming industry its abysmal.

 

Yes, WOT has one of the worst map designs in the field.

Dont mind it when I consider that Paris, Mines and Abbey are also in the game.

Can be alright - and dare I say even interesting - on standard mode but encounter is just the op side parking the bus in cap...pretty much.

I long ago discovered nearly every map is worse in Encounter mode, and most in Assault mode.:sceptic:

I like to switch it up. Maps like Prokhorovka, Malinova, Murovanka, Redshire and Steppes have encounter so it's nice to up the chances of getting those. Sand River losing assault was a minus but Karelia is nice so I keep that on.

Big games can be had on these modes.

I do now. As with the new ban system. I've not seen that map all patch.

 

 

It falls into the same traps every Asian map has done so far for some bizarre reason. Focuses 90% of both teams into one bottleneck to duke it out. No idea why it's so tricky for WG to make good Asian themed maps without steering everyone the same way. Tho Emperors Border is not as bad as the first draft of Pearl River. When no one on the South team left base, and they all aimed at the narrow bridge into their cap killing anyone from north silly enough to push it.

Very mediocre map where certain tanks are completely out of place, and others can have few positions to use.

I'm really not seeing it's point since old maps that had similiar design were removed...

I'm ok with it. It's a map with so many paths that a team can't possibly defend all of them effectively. That means you have to react to the situation at hand and relocate, which seems to cause problems to many people, thus they dislike the map.

I guess people wouldn't be so antsy about bordel if making that kind of relocation wouldn't involve driving half the map in most cases just due to amount of impassable terrain...

Is not that bad, not sure why people hate it. I always have Encounter and Assault mode OFF so I never tested in in that modes.

For me who play scout most of the time, it's just terrible, I can't get any support for the things I spot, not even from arty, I can't flank around unless ~2/3 or the enemy team is dead and I constantly get ambushes by some massive TD sitting in the far end of a corridor and there's nothing I can do to avoid it.
