From what I can tell, until we hear from a DEV, these are simply unintended map irregularities that can be exploited by certain tanks/situations.

 

Its NOT illegal to use them if you know they're there.  No one should get blacklisted.  My sole question is :  do they give an unfair advantage to certain tanks or certain North vs South spawns.

 

Truthfully I"ve tried a few, with no success.  I've also been rip-sawed by an E-25 (NOT Gasai!!) who was in one of these spots.  My response was:  good for him, he knew how to exploit the map/tank combo he was in..

I found out couple of days ago when I was searching for new possibilities.

That it is possible to get there completely alone.

 

I won't tell how though, so the info won't spread.

 

I search for new possibilities, with my dear E-25.

THIS IS what keeps you in the top.

I know that spot as well, but I've not used it in randoms. It's not that hard to do in a fast TD/SPG.

While it is true that which side you spawn on dictates whether or not you can use D0 on Sacred Valley in random battles, I believe it is entirely possible for any vehicle to get up there.

Case in point:

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.

 

Once I climbed D0 on sacred valley in T30 and my platoonmate in STRV swedish T9 TD, until we got up there score was 8-2 already, then we killed everyone one by one, they couldnt even shoot my turret back. I thought we lost the game already but won it one handed. I saw Orzanel climbed that in SU100Y.:trollface:

I'll keep my 150 locations across 28 different maps, thank you very much.

 

I've built a home up there on each of those mountains. Don't take them away from me!

 

And get away from my cap circle, shoo! I'll shoot you away, shoo!

out of bounds should simply be reportable as physics abuse. its clearly marked on the maps now. 

and yes, if that means they have to add invisible walls to stop this crap, im all for it.

I was just laughing about that the other day when I landed on Stalingrad. I need to make a quick get away and was cornered so I tried to go over some very low lvl ruble but couldn't. Sure they can't add invisible walls to keep people off the mountains but they can do it to keep you off of rubble you should be able to drive over no problem.

I haven't had much time to play the game :(.  But when I do,  first thing is to join the goat group as i see it as the perfect way to really learn the maps.  As an active tramper/hunter in RL, mountain goating and knowing the lay of the land is very appealing to me :).  Long live the Goat!.

They've been putting up invisible walls everywhere... But I'm still here and goating! o7 o7 o7

Honestly, if your tank can get in these positions then go for it. If you get spotted you can still be eliminated. If you're in a glitched spot on the map or have found a way to get outside the redlines that would be different. If the game lets you drive there, it's in play.

​You are wrong. Many tanks lack the gun elevation to hit goats in some spots. These spot are not intended to be accessible plain and simple. They need closed down (which I am pretty sure is happening on the "new maps").

many tanks lack the penetration to hurt higher tier tanks too, let's give them all MAGIC shots so any tank can kill another. Give me a break.

One man's opinion means little to me, especially someone still wet behind the ears. I'm not wrong because you say so. It's in play because you can drive there under your own power plain and simple.

 

What's with all the H8R's, if Wargaming listened to all of you we'd be throwing rocks at each other in a parking lot in our skivvies.
