Well now that I've seen the HD maps and although they are crisp and colorful,

very little has actually changed!

What appeared to be a great opportunity for War Gaming to make some substantial changes to the layout and playability

have actually been made so they are somewhat less playable.

Many spots that were advantage points have disappeared.

Cut and past of jagged edge boxy out croppings have replaced the majority of smooth and rounded features of ever map

A few walls(to reduce flight path of Spg shells) have been added and the odd surprise here and there,

but essentially the maps are, for the most part, no different.

Initially what appears to be surreal and completely different, soon vanish as one realizes little has actually changed.

Great for the new comer and those that have few miles behind them but a disappointment for many that thought significant changes were going to be the outcome of a long wait.

Looks great but, imo, not worth the wait!

This novelty have already worn off with a few spins in the training room.

What now comes to mind is how long will we have to wait until any new maps appear.

I personally do not recall a single post by any players asking for HD maps. What I do recall many of is players asking for new maps and old ones reworked to be brought back

I think they are fkn gorgeous.

Been here since 2012 and the game environment finally feels immersive. I can deal with the small changes. Adapt.

My the eye candy of the HD maps, Love it!

 

I can't wait. The glare of the sun on armor. The clouds moving. The shimmering of heat of the ground. The water. The way the grass moves when you fire.

Worth it. The maps feel like places now instead of well a sandbox.

It's not like WG told us for over a year in advance that "The meta of play on the maps will for the most part not change, they will still play as they do currently, just look a lot better"...

 

No, they didn't tell us that at all...

It appears there is something wrong with your eyes.

You may want to see a doctor soon before each of your posts takes up a whole screen!

Love the new retexturing of the maps they look  Awesome only a couple though have any change in basic play of the map.

 

 

 

 I have lag issues with sandbox server but is probably my ISP.

just wish they would come out with a totally new map.  :-)

The new maps look nice an' all, but after playing about a dozen games on the sandbox I didn't feel that I enjoyed the game any more because of it. So then I have to question what is the point? Sure the game needs to be relatively up to date looking, but I would much rather have seen new maps than prettier maps.
