Poll:  Fix maps to disable Mountain Goating

Discuss

 

******* EDIT since yesterday.

It seems many if not most tanks can get up SOME of these paths.  All the vids prior to this post I'd seen only fast meds/ fast lights that could make the climb.  There are now other posts showing most/all tanks can make some of these climbs..albeit slowly.

Mountain-goating takes 2-3 corridor maps and opens up new flanks.

It adds a new element to a very linear game.


 

It also allow you to shoot people that are trying to climb a mountain.


 

No mountain-goating?

WoT will look like Blitz.


 

No thanks.

It's a game feature, get used to it. What will your next poll be? Stop hull downing?

Snarky thoughtless one-line comment from a professional Tier 2 Seal clubber.  Nice.

 

 

 

Any tank can hull down.  Very few tanks can Mountain Goat MOST MG trails.   And most MG maps give a distinct advantage to one team or the other.

 

Its a poll.   I have no preference to yay/nay.  In a few other threads (unrelated) there were discussions to fix the maps to disallow it.

 

Very few tanks have the ability to make it up many of these mountain goat paths

Climbing should be removed from attack and defense because it makes maps like mines ridiculous for league.

True.

But very few tanks have the ability to one-shot another tank.


 

Different tanks have different strengths and weaknesses.

Most map Mountain Goat paths give one side a distinct advantage too... i.e. only one team can safely access/use it.   While Im sure I dont know ALL the MG paths, the few I know are not equally accessible/ exploitable by BOTH teams.

So far mountain goating just makes it easier for someone to see and shoot you.

 

Mountain goat away!

I actually have not personally seen any Mountain Goating in any of my games. I think it's so rare, it isn't really an issue. I see it as working the game to your advantage. 

That and it's actually pretty difficult to accomplish. It's only a problem when EVERYONE is trying to do it.

Fairly uncommon yes.   Ive seen a number of them, usually purple players with an occasional blue or green.   I've had a few games where 4 tanks have spent the first half of the match trying to get up a Goat Path,   Before you knew it the score was 2-15, game over.

Agreed- I'm a HT main, and I can't help but admire those goats.

They need to be made easily accessible or they need to be blocked off. Makes no sense that a jerk can hide in the back of the map the entire game and be able to defend thier cap while no one can reach them or worse light them. Map exploiters should be blacklisted and reported by everyone in the battle they partake in.

If all tanks could use this "exploit" then its balance. When only a few tanks can its broken. The maps are not designed for this "exploit". As stated one side of the map has an advantage using this "exploit" on most maps. Wargaming did not intent for these areas to be accessed.

If I see someone goating I just push them out of the way and park my [edited]on their path. Most goats just cost their team in the long run.

It's far more likely to be a game glitch than a game feature.

Ive seen Bat Chat, E-25 and HIGH tier Swede TD Goats.  Gotta be FAST tanks. 

 

VERY few can make these treks.

 

There used to be a goat path up the south side of the Mines donut hill, but that's gone now.

The only problem with this is that currently nobody at WG considers this to be cheating.
