Okay, so I was a bit on google when I discovered this map called Port, I barely even remember this but I do have slight memories of it. How come this got removed? and how long was it? since I've never seen this map being talked about anywhere. It looks like an interesting map but I only have slight memories of it, that's about it.

Fights used to be around the bridge in the south and in the north-west corner. I don't remember the reason it was removed. It was actually quite a nice map, as you had some possibilities to sneak around and flank enemies.

Not the best, but better than most new maps.

iirc, this map is still on the console version? 

 

I think they removed it from the PC version because steve the IS-7 driver got flanked too much but that was before my time :P

As far as i know it was removed after shots gained the ability to actually penetrate brick walls and still do damage. Most of that maps cover consisted of brick walls, so it became unplayable.

Or so i remember.

Indeed. It's so far the only map to be removed due to new mechanics. As you could use brick walls as cover from even a Jgpz E100 shot as a Chaffee.

They did do a rework for it, and it's not terrible tbh. As most of their maps are.

It seems you have answered your own question.

As of late, no such maps have been presented to us that permit this feat and the general direction from WG's stance in the matter has gotten quite obvious: they don't want those maps.

It wasn't a large map and the problem was the South spawn could just have a yolo light to the bridge and perma spot everyone from the North spawn, before some tanks even had a chance of leaving base. With the current meta of EBRs it's fair to say it would play even more poorly now.

 

Pearl River and North West would be better maps to bring back.

 

Windstorm was okay but again EBRs would break the spotting of north part of the map.

I quite enjoyed Port, everyone seemed to take the same spots there though - as a bonus there was a little hidden space somewhere around H1/2 iirc :)

Your map is not accurate : there was water in the south too.

Because this was one of my biggest laugh in Wot : chasing a BC-25t (hunting our arties in the bottom left) with my T50-2 and seeing it drift into water ... lol.

 

I liked this map because it was not a mirror map, and a mix of city, hills and you could climb on the bridges.
