This map displays so many good wallpaper opportunities!


PS. I have seen so many people complaining about the berlin map, I don't get why they dislike it tho. I personally find it fine.

I know how it is hard to produce something that satisfies people. And this post shows how much work and effort was put into this map. It is a beauty! Thank you WarGaming.

Still am not sure if it is balanced properly, played mostly with heavys on it. Medium and TD side looks like very sneaky/campy. No idea if LTs have a play on it. Just hope that "wheelchairs" will crash on everthing there. Let them burn! :)

The worst map in WoT history. Instantly banned after 2 matches.

I have blocked the map because I think it is poorly designed. And lo and behold! It keeps coming up even though I blocked it. Someone else in Chat reported the same thing. Great job, WG, great job.

I can't understand 2 things: 

1. Why you don't fix the old maps?

2. Why you bring to the game this "mini" map? You should focus to make all maps 1000x1000m.

Of course you don't like it if you did not get to learn the locations. First thing i did was go in a training room for 1 hour and learn the map. I think it's one of the best maps wot has to offer. You just have to know how to play it.

In my opinion, it’s always good to have new map:)
There are a lot of complains cuz people didn’t learn it well yet (and some of them banned it and will never do so(learn)).
Anyway, my first impression told me that respawn should have been moved a little to the center, due to impossibility to get to the flank fast with some averaged-speed tanks, as a result - most of them going to small city, push each other, block each other and die fast in that hell of Berlin city:)
For sure after that 2 min battle ( with one Grille and Strv left on other side):) they will ban it:(
08:16 Added after 5 minute
And yes, WG, it’s time for Trade-in... come on Gents, it’s been a while since last one...gonna trade M4mle49 for HWK30;)

It is completely unclear WHY a large number of good old maps have not just been reworked?  Severogorsk, Stalingrad,Hidden Village, etc.
In Stalingrad, you had the opportunity to move in any directions, practically without a corridors. This seems to have been a "problem" for the CORIDORS

WoT developers. The new Erlenberg is incomparably worse now. The same goes for Minsk. Instead of being a BIT of a FIX, the map is completely ruined!

There are many such examples, but nothing is being done to correct them.

Yet another garbage city map that is only good for heavy tanks.


I would ban it but I am already banning Ensk and Minsk, another 2 garbage maps.

I want the option to be able to ban more maps.

Plus I want bans to work on Encounter battle mode.

Same here

But its still available in encounter mode its too bad.

Nothing interesting in this map. No matter which tank you play and where you go. You must stand one place before you die

Yet another City Map

that only Wargame developers wanted for reasons only they 'think' they know


we the players well we don't count we get these City Maps after City Maps then more awful City Maps rammed down our necks

((wish I could block them really I do

there is not a single brawling corridor City Map in the game where I have a enjoyable fun experience not one 


Im always exited to hear that a new Map is arriving and appreciate all the time and hard work that Wargame puts into them and yes I can believe there difficult to make a big thank you making more Maps

so why not bring back 5 or 6 of the old deleted Maps WG? there is a big player demand for them has been for years, most of that 'hard' work the Map dev's do has already been done

I really like the fact you give more insight in things happening behind the scenes.

Personally I am not a technical person, but I love to learn things.

Reading an article how you build a map from scratch is great.

Hopefully you can make a same article but then about the production itself. (Maybe a video.)


Never been to Berlin myself, but my clanmates who have, recognize a lot of places.

Props to that, love that.


The map for me is still a learning thing.

Hate that most people just bash the map because it is new and they don't understand the gameflow yet.

For me only two maps are hated, that are Empires border because it is only a fun maps for meds, and Ensk because it is WAY TOO small.


The games I had on the Berlin map that I played in the North felt balanced.

The south seems to be a bit favorable to the west team.
