Never played that map, but I've always found it interesting.

For some reason, the remade maps are worse than the old versions...So, not a fan. The map used to be fun, back then, but in the current meta, it should be limited to tier 8.

It looks nice, i hope it plays nice too. More maps is always a good thing.

 

"Jungle themed map". ;)

I am pretty sure Wargaming will find a way to ruin this map too,like they did with every other other new/reworked Map...(Fish bay,Steppes,charkow etc.)

God i really wish we would just get the pre 1.0 Maps back.

Fearing this, but at the same time I want new maps, a lot of them. Even if 9/10 of them would be bad, at least we would get 1 good one. That's pretty much the ratio on existing maps also.

I always thought Pearl River was ok, never understood why it disappeared.

Well this was one of those maps that was not terrible, but not super fun either depending on what side you got. Heat maps at the time had everything in the HT valley and on TD hill on north base. North also won over 60% of their games iirc as a reason for its removal. As if north had aggressive meds, winning that 1 area was not an issue. So let's hope the rework makes it more balanced there.

It depends, as I had little love for some removed maps. As they were way too one-sided, or you just used 10% of the map like Dragon Ridge or Hidden Village. This was just one of those maps that were just terrible from one side. Tho for those that remember, it was reversed before. When it first came the middle had no roads, and south just camped base with 12+ guns waiting for their HT's to come to the bridge and kill them 1 by 1. For then to flank around the map and box them in. That was horrible. The removed version was at least somewhat fun. Or rather situational fun. But still better than any of my current top 3 hated maps.

Not interested, gameplay wise is one of the worst maps in the game, and got changed many times to make it better, without much success.

Well, it's a prototype, and kinda hard to compare it to the 'old' one with only images.

 

Provided the usual translation issues (not particular to TAP, though easily avoidable even for a non-Russian speaker) aren't present, I do find it interesting that they thought the map was too linear. The first iteration of Pearl River was indeed rather uninspiring, taking cues from Lakeville. The later iterations, adding the 'maze' in the middle helped a lot with playability. Places to go, tanks to flank. Must be confusing for someone who's used to the Mountain Pass way - fighting for an artificial chokepoint or getting shot at from the base hill.

Would also be nice if they started to remove the trash maps as well - Paris, Minsk, Ghost Town...

Honestly, I have a hard time thinking up an entirely new map that was added after 1.0 that was actually good. :(

This is how I feel, all the maps I used to love and were great for specific tanks have been straight up ruined.

Good, it was never a bad map in general, just a map on which bad players did extra badly.

 

Now, next up: Dragon's Ridge please, same story as above!

Glacier has been my blocked map for many months now. I HATED it and could not get a handle on it in any vehicle. I had one or two great games, but most were awful.


 

They have changed it, have they? I'll have to give it a go.
