Nice to have a second map even though I've only been on the first one twice.

 

And of course it's a winter map so the strategy of only buying summer camo to save credits goes out the window if you're hoping to get into grand battles.

Actually not much to like except a new map is great. But placed in a restricted format that is difficult to get into doesn't excite me at all it a BIG MEH. Grand Battles concept doesn't work as the map is to large for the expanded teams to work well with each other it turns into three mini battles.  Tanks lack the speed to respond to battle flow quickly. Doesn't work IMO so waste of a new map.

It looks like a rehash of Northwest and Severogorsk combined.

It's a fantastic map. Loved it on common test.

I don't get why they had to hire an outside firm to develop this mode. It's not really a new game mode, just a bigger map with more tanks.


 

I'm not complaining about the mode, personally I prefer this over some funky mode with respawns and such. I just think WG was hoping this would be something new, but ended up with just a "grander" version of the existing pub mode.

According to TAP the date is most likely the morning of December 13th. Russia gets it on the 12th.

The entire map department is working on the HD conversion. They would have to stop or slow that down to build the new Grand Battle maps. 

 

Then you have to do the internal playtesting. That requires significant time and resources.

Actually, I deactivate grand battle, so new map will not change my game play.... Play tier 7 and below and enjoy the game... Because to many many many players that play tier X with cheating add-ons.  There is no fun in tier 8 and above.  So to go back on a new map for players who play tier X... Have fun anyway it's not those players who bring the money to wargaiming, One of those days peoples who pay for premium time and few premium vehicles, etc will stop to bring the money in and play the same same old map.

I enjoyed Northwest so this might trigger me to reactivate the grand battles.

More maps = good.  

 

Just that simple.  Will see how often I even see it as I don’t play X all that much with the various grinds I have going.

WHEN ARE YOU GOING TO PRODUCE NEW PUB MAPS ?

The last map you added was 2 years ago and players were clamoring for new maps way before then

Since that time you have added a new 30 VS 30 maps and now with Klondick this will be 2, before the Pub gets any!

When are you going to start adding new maps to this stale game???
