Recently, I have posted a couple of topics on Maps - specifically, what happened to the 'Map Discussion Thread'.

 I was admonished by Forum Moderators for doing so (&, apparently, these posts have been removed).

Why has WG discontinued such an important Forum Thread?

 Are we, the players, ever going to see any brand new maps in the future? Ever?

Are we, the players, ever going to see the return of any of the removed maps? Ever?

Would a WG employee of some senior standing deign to comment and inform us players of what WG plans to do regarding the serious WoT Map Issues?

Maybe if you didn't attack random employees and spam 400 of the same topic they would give you more leeway.

I would hope more maps do arrive.  Variety won't hurt at all.

 

 

As for discussion, the more civilized discourse that goes on, the better things should be.  I'm also pining for a Return Of Dragon's Ridge

maps maps maps maps.

I would rather NOT have new corridor map.

 

Turns out I play this game for the GAMEPLAY.

Not for the maps maps maps.

 

Currently I would rather take the ' fix '

for the newest ' gameplay feature '

that is the ' packet loss ' to be actually able to play.

 

But by all means create more map map map ' topics '.

NEW MAPS.

 

 

NEW MAPS WHERE ARE THE MAPS!

MAPS!

There are at least 40 maps in pub play, but one of them is for tiers 1 & 2 only and three others are essentially duplicates.

Therefore, there are 36 unique maps in pubs that are seen (at least occasionally) by a large percentage of total players... that is, players in tier 6 through 10 tanks.

Tier 5 players get about 27 maps and tier 4 about 18.

This seems reasonable to me... the maps are listed below, if there are mistakes, I stand corrected.

Summer Maps

1 Abbey

2 Cliff

3 Ensk

4 Fisherman's Bay

5 Fjords

6 Highway

7 Himmelsdorf

8 Karelia

9 Lakeville

10 Live Oaks

11 Malinovka

12 Mines

13 Mountain Pass

14 Murovanka

15 Overlord

16 Paris

17 Pilsen

18 Prokhorovka

19 Redshire

20 Ruinberg

21 Serene Coast

22 Siegfried Line

23 Stalingrad

24 Steppes

25 Swamp

26 Tundra

27 Westfield 

28 Widepark

Winter Maps

29 Arctic Region

30 Erlenberg

31 Kharkov

32 Sacred Valley

33 Windstorm  

 Desert Maps

34 Airfield

35 El Halluf

36 Sand River   

Duplicates

37 Fiery Salient

38 Winter Himmelsdorf

39 Winterberg

Tier 1 & 2 only

40 Mittengard

What would really exemplify the amount of maps we have now would be having them all in rotation and not just a small handful at a time.

 Are we, the players, ever going to see an end to this guys badgering?

 

I would assume the people involved in map development/graphics have their hands full with HD maps. When that is done maybe we'll get new maps. I suppose you'll still make a new thread tomorrow though.

Hello aethervox,

 

While the map discussion section was removed during the forum re-organization, players can still discuss maps and give feedback. Map discussion now takes place in the Gameplay Discussion section of the forum and any feedback or suggestions on maps takes place in the Feedback / Suggestion section. While I can understand your concern when things change, the removal of certain sections does not mean that the discussion should stop; it is simply moved to a different location of the forums.

 

Any information regarding new maps, reworked maps or the potential for removed maps to be returned will always be announced on our official channels (forums, articles, in-game announcements, social media, etc.).

Hi _Tsavo!

 

With the map rotation the devs are working on, you should be able to see more maps while you're gaming. The plan is to open it up so that you are less likely to see the same map repeatedly :)

Well according to win statistics back then one side won more than the other and thus it was removed. If I remember correctly usually its when one side wins 51% of the time or higher they take a second look at that map or consider it for removal. Its funny because Northwest was one of the better maps they've designed since it worked for all the classes. My guess is they will probably make an HD version with changes to hopefull fix this imbalance because Its not nearly as problematic to fix as some of the other removed maps.

Map rotation is being fixed, and they also said during that facebook livestream that previously removed maps would be reworked and returned.

They don't care about maps they just rehash alot old one says it new and improved.  Give the players the tools needed map some new maps they have some good and some bad.  With all newer much faster tanks they keep releasing they need bigger maps or reduce number players in randoms.  They we tested optimal number tanks in match back 2011.  2017 match now 3-4 time faster.  NO ROOM MOVE Around before 8 tanks got a bead on you from every direction.  Not a battle it just who more tanks on this side.

 

Image a Mirrored map no side has edge.   Don't say cann't done there just to lazy and cheap make new maps.

And you're too lazy to type in all the words, I barely understood this.
