Hey, everyone! 

 

Happy Friday! Hope that you’re ready for the weekend. 

 

In the meantime, I have a bit of Supertest news for you involving…wait for it…maps! 

 

Today, we’re bringing two maps currently being reworked in HD to the Supertest. These maps are Lost City and Empire’s Border. You may not be familiar with them because Lost City was previously used for Attack/Defense Random Battles, and Empire’s Border was only available in China.

Empire's Border:

 

Map and Screenshots

 

We’ll use the Supertest to assess the suitability of these maps for 15v15 random battles. We’re going to check which Tiers play well on these maps and gather info on any potential issues (with firing positions, respawn imbalances, etc.). 

 

Once this round of Supertesting ends, we’ll decide whether to bring Empire’s Border and Lost City into Random Battles for all regions. So, we’re eager to know your opinion on these maps. Be sure to let us know what you think! 

 

Please follow the news for any updates, and best of luck in your battles!

Any chance of putting Ghost Town back in the map list for training rooms?

We used it A LOT for SH training, Hide-N-Seek, and other clan stuff.

Oh sweet - thanks! +1

Ghost Town being symmetrical is great for new caller training, and the place has A LOT of nooks and cranies for Pz1Cs to hide for Hide-N-Seek. We miss it.

keep seeing lots of supertest maps, yet not seeing any get added to the game.

 

The number of maps actually in the game has declined every year, just like the number of players. Coincidence???????????

Only in the minds of players whos tinfoil hats are too tight...

Always wanted Empire's Border to come these servers. Looks like a nice map. I would think it in particular wouldnt need much testing given that:

 

A. Its on the console versions of the game 

 

and

 

B. Its been on the chinese server for years.

 

Either way hope it comes soon. Do we have a size on this map now that its in HD... IIRC the SD version was 1kmx1km

 

Lost Ciy on the other hand has an immediate issue... the team spawns need to be moved from the North and South portions of the map to  to the East and West portions. As its set up now it will likely foster a clockwise battle flow, where teams try to get to the enemy cap just by driving around the outside of the map. Also... this map, as I remember it was very small... has it been enlarged for 15v15 play?

 

 

Would love to see Northwest and Pearl River return too.
