I always hated Pearl River, just a map that I could never enjoy. However with the HD One, visually atleast, it might be my favourite now. :teethhappy:

Unfortunately, one single small new map doesnt outweigh all the ridiculous changes that WG are implementing in the new year.

Pearl river might have been narrow corridors but at least there where a lot of them and chances to use one or more to flank. So as long as they keep same number or more routes through then it could be a good tactical map especially for mediums changing position and flanking.

Well, now you can hate it in HD! :D

 

I liked Pearl River, good arty cover and a lot of roads and pathways to take.

That still doesn't mean it's a new map...just a new version.

 

Berlin ain't new either, IIRC it was used in that Steel Hunt or w/e mode it was years ago.

 

Both are the same old maps, just completely redone.

Pearl river seems to have gotten the Fjords overhaul. That might not be the best thing.

 

Then Berlin (I suppose?) looks interesting. If it only could replace Ensk... 
Edit: Nah, leave Ensk. Just get rid of Ruinberg once and for all. (And I still miss old Erlenberg, it was a superior map in all aspects compared with today's abomination. Just saying...)

"Unpredictable" is the word you are probably looking for.

So Pearl River gets basic WGs agent orange treatment and loses half of its vegetation. Maybe put some TD balconys behind both places to Make sure TDs better just camp max 100m from base?

 

Never played Berlin, but gold damn that looks awfull, like a mix between Minsk and Widepark. Oh Joy!

On a serious note, looks like they have done the usual to Pearl River, removed tons of cover and lots of places for TD's to hang back and camp,, tbh my joke map looks pretty sweet now. Why do they always do this? I always enjoyed the old pearl river lots of places to flank if you had a brain.

Introduced in Update 8.5 in 2013

The lack of brains, caused bad gameplay experience, which caused WG to remove the map.

Removed in Update 9.10 in September 2015

 

Now 4 years later it is time to cater the crowds with luke warm great new gameplay experience again.

 

Next stops are "remastered" Dragon Rich, Komarin and Swamp.

WG map designer is very bad at his job. There is not 1 map that is better in HD than it was in SD. I miss so much the old maps that had random vegetation on the whole map, not just empty fields in the middle and bushes on the ridge line for campy TD’s.

 

the best exemple of map destroyed by new HD is erlenberg that was one of my favorites before and now is on my blocked list alongside Mines. It used to have hills and vegetation, the middle river city was actually quite good and the stupid forrest In the base was absent

Yeah the ''oh so perfect old Erlengberg that nobody ever hated at all, like at all''.

I made a drawing and I named it; Timeline of what the players thought about the old Erlenberg map

I wonder why people were like this, is it as simple as they wanted to whine about something so bad that they ignored all their previous thoughts about the map just for the greater whine. It was one of, if not The most whined about map due to the huge amount of camping on it. You crossed the river at start, you were pretty much dead because rest of your team just camped. The NE was the only workable position and after the changes it was so funny to see people still going there regardless of the changes and still expecting the same. And when the same inevitably didn't happen, oh boy they whined and raged.
