Map is now just a pathetic joke and borefest.  Now most lights and mediums look like 6 year olds chasing a soccer ball, just driving around in circles.  And what's most pathetic is that WG seems to reward this silly behavior in racking up xp and silver.  Sad.

Care to enlighten us regarding how you think lights and meds should properly play this map?

One guy wants the lights to do a mindless wave pattern on the middle hill, another wants you to scout the big hill, and another wants you to sit in a bush overlooking the ditch. Screw 'em all. Just do what you want. Turn off your chat if you have to.

Okay, granted I'm not a huge fan of the map, but how else should said tanks play it? Just sit and be arty fodder? Play peek-a-boom with heavies and mediums on the other side of the mid-mound? LTs and Meds are doing their job on that map, if they are indeed being six-year-olds chasing soccer balls.

 

Chase On!

I love that map and I play lights and mediums.   Please tell me how to play it then.  because I surf the ridge lines and get lights for the campers to shoot crapthen end game go and mop up almost dead tanks.  I must be doing it wrong:facepalm:

The team with the best vision control on fiery salient tends to win the match

You know what happens on that map when I'm halfway up TD ally or on the dip on the heavy hill? Some a$$ clown inevitably parks behind me and proceeds to get lit and shot at.....yes, and I take the damage. Usually 3 or 4 guns are lined up on said clown as well, so there's that little fun tidbit too. So when that happens now I don't wait, I bail out and do some figure 8 sh1t in the field and spot or counter lights until some one on the other team thins out our deeper reds. Plus every dead player or chai sniper is pinging the map continuously wanting eyes on some imagined danger. I usually do very well on these maps and not because I'm "following orders" If I rack up damage and XP', it's because I'm doing my job right. 

As far as I know the only people bored on this map are the campers and heavys that get pounded by arty. 

 

Edit: if you were playing today I can understand. It's pretty bad out there and I saw very few games with any form of vision control on the open maps.
