If Paris is still around, Kharkov should be too!

 

I like Paris btw! not hating!

 

I think all the maps should be back, with the exception of Komarin.  That map has to be tier 5 and below or made much larger to allow for the higher tiers.

 

Kharkov is a map I didn't like but I didn't want to see that one or any other go.  The crossfire can be tricky at times and I had friendlies fire on me a number of times on this one and its been a map where I felt I had more failures than successes.  That being said, I'd rather be challenged with getting better on a map than wish it were gone.

Mines is fun at very low levels, workable at mid levels, pure cancer at high levels.

 

If Mines were made larger, I think it would be just fine with high tiers.  But as it is now, winning the hill means winning vision control of the map which means the SPGs for the side that loses the hill are often toast.  Whereas the SPGs for the side with hill control can feast and in my view, this is a very one sided outcome.  Enlarging the map could still allow some movement for the side that lost the hill without being completely spotted as it seems to be now.

Real question is "Why is Glacier a thing?"

 

but seriously mines its a good map but definitely not for anything above tier 7.
 

Glacier is actually a great map. Mines is completely unbalanced in favor of the north, better hill spawn, better east access, better island play, better slope leading to the hill. South spawn is just [edited].

Mines is unplayable with +2 artys from the south side.

Mines should be tier limited for pubs.  Its not a good tier 10 pub battle map.  I question if its even good for 15v15 organized play either.  However, they do need to add maps before cutting any :(

Gungrave just likes to tell anyone that will listen that he thinks Glacier is a bad map. 

 

Personally I really like it. But I mostly play lights and mediums lately and almost always work the middle ridge.

 

And yes Mines needs to limited to tier 6 and below.
