Hello,

 

I am back as I miss the forums too much as I have no one to talk to outside wot. 

 

I have an idea of a map.

 

While I was watching band of brothers I thought the episode where they are in the Arden forest would make a good map

 

You can have a half town half forest map, similar to ruin berg but bigger with more space 

 

Here are some photos

 

We need more winter Maps

 

 

So this would be the right hand side of the map, densely built forest, like the woods in Muravenka 

Spoiler

 

You will have small village areas for cover for the middle of the map

Spoiler

 

And. larger city area to brawl on the left hand side

 

Spoiler

 

 

DO you like saxsan's idea

 

Please , thoughts comments questions my friends :)

So...two Murovanka forests with the Malinovka's center plains with a bit of cover and a small village somewhere.

 

Sounds like Malinovka without water or hills, and denser tree areas.

The forest area will allow for mediums to flank into the city and also for people to snipe from,

 

the centre will have much more cover than malaoiva and will allow for fast mediums and lights to spot as well as fight

 

it will also have LOTS and I mean lots of man holes from artiarlly fire providing nice soft cover

 

and the city will be nice place to brawl

 

think of it more like a larger ruinberg but with a forest added on to the right of the current field and thats the may.

World of Tanks Console has an Ardennes map, see below (I think that river is frozen over as well, not sure):

Spoiler

 

Google also showed something about Blitz and a map, but I couldn't immediately find anything other than this image and the thread (also it's Blitz.. soooo):

Yes, I saw the Wot console one, apparently its not well liked :(, so I thought they should add a wot PC version. The new Berlin map looks amazing and I want more historical maps as it looks and feels so good

 

 

 

Other map idea I have is a falklands island one, would you like to play that too?

More maps are nice, I stopped playing for a while bc the game got too stale. Unfortunately one of the selling points of premium is the map blocker, and that will either diminish in value with a new map or they'll  have to allow three maps blocked with prem.

One of my other good suggestions is to have 3 maps allowed blocking with premium account, or have it a special slot you have to unlock with gold

Pansy, any clue why they don't just copy it to the pc version ? Would be a easy copy, not much effort.

Console and PC Are different teams and all, and it's undoubtedly not as simple as copy and paste. It would also need to be reworked into the Encore engine or whatever, which would take a fair amount of time (considering how we still have maps that haven't been updated to the new engine yet).

I doubt it would take that much time tbh, WG is large company with lots of money available to spend. Personally I think it pours down to WG being greedy company, new maps don't make money, so they just focus on releasing new premium tanks, easy money.

1. An Adennes map is a good idea. Historical battle. The Germans used a variety of tanks as did the USA. Detail I leave to War Gaming.

 

2. In another thread ages ago I suggested a map of Khalkin Gol. I suggested Khalkin Gol because the terrain looks interesting. It is historic and tanks were used by both the USSR and the Japanese. But most importantly it was Georgy Zhukov in command on the USSR side and he was determined to use his fast moving tanks and armoured cars in combined arms with infantry and air support in sweeping movements. Zhukov had read Liddel Hart's book.

 

3. I am less keen on a Falklands map, as although the FV101 Scorpions were very much appreciated with their 75mm HE rounds at the Battle of Wireless Ridge, as were the 30mm cannon of the Scimitars in support of 2Para. Only four of each model were deployed and the Argentines had no tanks at all. There was thus no tank warfare as such.

Better propose a fix to broken bush camo on prokhorovka 1-2 line, its simply beyond stupid that something like FV4005s, jpzs can not be spotted, until you get within less than 50m lol.

Good old magical mushroom murovanka forest x2. Both sides will have happy tree friends "outplay" each other everytime someone suicide scouts the other team.

sounds like fun...

I bet there would be a little hill on both of those forests, just like the old south Murovanka used to have. 4 TDs just waiting for a poor sod. Magic.

A proper Ardennes map should be a relatively flat plateau cut by a relatively steep, narrow valley. Flat, open farmland up top, dense pine forest on the steep slopes and the village/town straddling a stream / small river at the bottom of the valley.

 

The Close Combat game series has nice maps, a lot of them based on aerial photographs from during the war. Wargaming could easily steal one from there and then pretend to have seen the same pictures. :popcorn:

I have that map blacklisted permanently so I never have to endure it

Even if it was marshland or swamp, they could still glide across the wasteland as they have a built in secret hover mode. (Eels come as an optional extra.)
