Hi Folks!

For this week we're mixing it up a bit and taking a look at an upcoming map: Province!

(No music video for this one, but feel free to listen to your favorite spaghetti western soundtrack or something by Andrea Bocelli)
Previous guides:
Fjords

Glacier

 

So, this guide may change a bit in the future for a couple reasons: it's on Common Test, so if we're still taking feedback into consideration, and neither myself nor the rest of the community really has had enough time with Province to get super-familiar with it. However that means there is plenty of time to discover all the nooks and crannies Province has to offer. If you have feedback regarding Province, make sure you leave your feedback in our 1.0.1 Common Test Feedback thread!

A first look at province is visually stunning: Province has received quite the facelift with its HD treatment. There are lots of cool little details to check out on the map, so hop in a Training room at some point and take your time taking a look around. There are plenty of destructible objects to plow through with your armor, so don't get distracted while you're deploying because your early-game positioning is going to be of critical imporance.

While the map size was increased it is still quite small, which will make players feel a sense of urgency to seek hard cover, as players typically have most of the map within their draw distance. Effective use of your draw, vision, and max view circles will be critical.

 

(No visual minimap yet, check back after 1.0.1 releases!)

A quick note: Some of these images are rather large, If anything looks wonky, try zooming out! (ctrl+scroll down)
 

Southwest spawn, Field Push

 

Eastern Brawl

 

Northeast Sniping

 

Northeast Spawn Field Push

West Brawling (South Spawn) 


Let's hear your thoughts on Province! Are you excited to check out the reworked version? Have you had a chance to play Province on Common Test?

Suggestions and feedback for future guides always welcome!

While I liked province years ago I'm a bit worried about this being brought back for high tiers even if they made it bigger. Scary thing is if this gets used in clan wars it will be nothing but a facepalm session of 264s tickling each other at a distance.

 

BTW I think you forgot to sticky the thread and +1

To my knowledge, all tiers.

Hopefully....never because that was a trash map for teaching new players the nuances of the game.

That should be interesting!

I'm actually looking forward to it :)

 

I can't really tell from the screenshots, but what is the maps size?

Looks like about 450m/500m?

Okay...

So, I wasn't the only one that saw a bowl shaped familiarity.

 

I really want some Cap'n Crunch right now.

Agree. It has to be emphasized that the problem is not so much with the map. The problem is the overpowered tanks.

If this map is open to all tiers, it's going to be a blast!

Everything will be lit up from the end of the countdown, it's going to be a shoot'm up fest, in an epic style!

Domo -- Can you beg the developers to publish:

1. Maps in process 

2. A brief description of the map

3. Anticipated delivery schedule

 

I don't care if it over years, changes over time, and/or is a short or long list -- it would just be nice to know what's in the longer term queue.

 

Thank you for you map Mondays one of the better forum items! +1

Usually if you check leaked sits like Armored Patrol, Daily Bounce, Status Report you can see what maps are being worked on.

I haven't heard of any plans in that regard so as of right now, probably not but it's possible that a heavily reworked version will come out at some point? Just spitballing here to be honest, I have 0 information in this regard.

Going off of memory here from the latest Dev Diaries video but if I recall, 850m?

Thanks for the feedback! I'd appreciate it if you could leave some detailed feedback in this regard on the dedicated 1.0.1 Common Test Feedback thread in our WoT Community Feedback Request subforum!

So, there is plenty of hard cover you can carefully navigate without necessarily getting spotted at the start. You shouldn't get spotted in spawn, but anticipate that you will get shot at if you do get spotted and you are not behind hard cover. I'm excited for some sweet sidescraping town brawls in my heavies.

Glad you like Map Mondays! I pour my heart into making these guides as informative as possible, so a little bit of positivity always makes me smile.

We actually have been doing a better job of previewing most of our upcoming maps in development when they hit Supertest and Common Test. Keep a close eye on our Wargaming Community Feedback Requests subforum: There are some versions of that were put up recently, as well as the  1.0.1 Common Test Feedback thread.

I'm looking forwards to seeing the return of this map. It used to be a very entertaining one, and I hope the new  version is the same in that regard.

The best part is that it is totally different to any other map currently in the game. Variety is good.

There have actually been quite a few valley maps in the game with Mittengard and Glacier that come to mind.

.........

 

This is what I was informed of recently:

 

http://forum.worldoftanks.com/index.php?/topic/576035-four-or-more-maps-removed/page__st__20__pid__11612052#entry11612052
Spoiler

 

Apparently, this poster {Drone157} is well informed of WG's intentions of bringing back Mittengard. So, what say you Mr. Sapien..? Is this poster providing me with misleading and false information..?

 

And again, I know some players out there do not appreciate the special brawling nuances of Mittengard, and that's too bad. I think it's a lot more fun to play than that 'campfest' of a map called Province. Furthermore, I loved using Mittengard as a map for my mid-tier training room battles. It was always fast, furious, and fun! I used to get a full house of players in my Mittengard battle rooms. We played all kinds of tiers and tanks, and everyone always had a great time. And I'd like to see it brought back.
