I'm sick of getting Province 3 of 4 battles running low tiers. Your map rotation just plain sucks. Province should be eliminated, and the guy who drew it fired. :Smile_trollface-3:

The fact that you pulled both Swamp and Komarin, and left Province in any rotation proves how little you guys know about maps and game play.

Province sucks the fun out of low tiers instantly.

Have a nice rest of the day.

Looks like you're one of those ppl who don't take the time to get to know a map. I don't see why you dont have a problem with El Halluf. Providence is just a smaller version for smaller tanks. ^^

Yep. I like it actually except when too many of my team mates rush the other team's hill and get slaughtered. For some reason players always rush over there even when you can tell they've played for a while. Fun map for practicing your hide and snipe skills.

Now, how about let's just remove all maps and play on a absolutely flat plane? I think that would work for you. I actually liked the maps that they removed.

OMG! I absolutely ADORE Province in my wee lil tier 1's!

There's these 2 really spiffy hidey holes! One in the east and one in the west.

And their like the ultimate bestest places to be!

You get hard cover! And bushes! And really wide open fields of fire if ya wiggle a bit!

They pacticly hand out Scout and Top Gun awards just for being there!

Wait a minute.. why am i posting here?!?!?

ok. its now a night map. no sun or moon (cause we see the moon from reflected sunlight. no sun, no moon). you cant see anything past 10m in front of you, cant see anything to the sides/rear. headlights are a 100K credit consumable to be able to see 100m in front, 30 to the sides, and 10 to the rear. or 20 gold for NV and see everything in tones of green.

its a mini version of El Halluf. problem with province (and why they relegated it to low tiers) is that its too small for high tier tanks/TDs/arty.

When province was available for high tiers i absolutely hated it. Every game was virtually a campfest, and attempting to flank anything was a lost cause. Not to mention the map gives SERIOUS preferential treatment to tuns with good gun depression since every single chokepoint, bottleneck, vantage point, and even corner has these speedbump shaped slopes that make it so you have to leave yourself completely open, or point up in the sky, or have good gun depression.

I normally agree with Virgil, but not on this one.  Province is one of my favorite maps.  It requires a modicum of tactics, intelligence and downright balls to win.  No other map I know in the rotation rewards good play and punishes bad play than Province.


I am very sad that it is not in the High Tier Tank rotation.

Except that everyone would spot everyone from 4-500m out, where heavy armor is king because there's literally no flanking options on a flat plane, nevermind no artillery cover, so light tanks aren't as useful since everyone knows where everyone is, tanks with the most armor and biggest guns (by pen) have the biggest advantage, and everyone else is fodder for artillery and the other tanks.

You'd basically be shutting out every french tank, light tanks would be mitigated, medium tanks would be largely useless in most cases, heavy tanks would be kings depending on their armor level, and TDs would be a mix of useful and useless, while artillery would be gods.

It'd be an absolutely terrible idea and the novelty would wear off in about half a game.

It looks like you're wrong. I know the map. That's why I hate it.
