Was the Highway map removed ? Don't get me wrong it wasn't a fav of mine. But it's better than Ensk and Mines

Guess it did not get the HD treatment.

I believe that WG wasn't happy with the conversion to HD, so they're still working on it.

So glad sacred valley is out of the rotation.  Tiny map with 1/3 of the map unplayable ground.

Less maps should definitely keep the server population up.

If only, that map is probably one of my least favorite maps to play..

yeah, that's the one, where any tank without armor is particularly useless and arty has no shots

You might be thinking of Northwest, which was removed about that long ago.

Highway just didn't get converted to HD yet, but it will eventually and will be readded.

I personally would've been in favor of WG not removing maps that weren't converted to HD, but just keep them and remove them once the HD version is complete.

Guess that makes Klondike the most shortlived map in the game?

They had to take out a couple of maps since they didn't make it to HD yet. They are planning on adding them back in a near-future update.

I actually really like Highway.

 

Didn't they even the terrain out a few years ago?

If I recall correctly, it used to be a deeper bowl.

 

Or am I just thinking of El Halluf? One of my least favorite maps...

I believe the Highway map is under construction.  An alternate detour route is through Redshire.

You're talking about Port.

Highway wasn't a particularly good map, but, even while everyone was complaining about it, there were much worse maps.

 

After the HD shift, they made a few maps that were okay much, much worse than Highway ever was, too (looking at you, Erlenberg and Fisherman's Bay).
