I've played 9 or 10 battles on the Highway map since the update. The north spawn has won every single match and it wasn't even close. Like 15-5 or worse. Before someone chimes in that the losses are all my fault, I've been on both sides about the same, so I am not complaining about losing every match. Anyway, it seems to me that the north spawn can get across to A1 very easily and then there's so much cover there that you can't get them out. Trying to dig them out just results in getting hit by arty or snipers from across the map. Last match I had there we tried hanging back a little, but at that point they end up spotting your arty and any TDs and they still roll through. I know it's a small sample and maybe it's just going to take some time to adjust to the map changes, but I just wanted to see if anyone else noticed it.

I miss the bush they provided mid A line for south spawn to spot from. No idea why they removed it, but it’s definitely harder to prevent the north from pushing that flank without the cover.

 

The new music and visual effects are nice though.

I've only played one battle on that map since its reintroduction.

 

I had the southwest spawn and lost. (as was usual for that spawn)

 

Not sure why they bothered to bring it back if they weren't going to fundamentally fix the balance issue that has existed for years. Should have just flushed it.

They removed some key bushes from Widepark as well. It's like they don't want unarmored TDs to have anywhere to snipe from safely. Especially on that postage stamp map...

Do you want to drive somebody's HO scale train set, or have a balanced map without all the added bells and whistles?  I have yet to see one HD that actually improved game play.  Take some screen shots of the areas that need bushes/corrections and post it on one of the feedback threads.  Maybe they will add them back in a later patch if it's brought to their attention.

0 for 3 from the South . Too small a sample to draw a conclusion

Been on highway south 3 times and lost badly each time.Defending the field is absolutely not viable from the south side.

That's what happens when you bring back the [edited]maps. So study the map first and then talk.

weird.  I had zero issues digging out the field side in my Patton from the south spawn, and in fact winning from the south.  but I didn't try it by sniping from the ridge like so many mediums do.  I drove out there, and got in their face, which magically had the influence that my team of mediums followed, and we smashed them...

Just played it a few matches ago. Looks very nice now, but I see what you mean. Got south spawn, top tier in my Super P. Should have been able to easily win it. Most of their tanks went to the A1 area, dug in, demolished our tanks, and came up around flanking.

We were on the South side and we won handily, but it was obvious from the start that the other side was flaking out. Enemy heavies parking in the open, Lights rolling around and not engaging.
It was actually a rare game where I was wondering why I, in my TD, desperately seeking a good hide, was not being trounced, as I was obviously spottable/spotted.

I consider an unbalanced map to be a challenge.I would like to see more desert maps.

It was a crap map, now it is a crap map with a tornado, a map where the mediums go to one corner, and the heavies go to the other corner, with a big center of death zone.....The north spawn can take the medium corner fast with support from their base......the south spawn can't take the medium corner, and they can't recieve help from base...

 

Another crap map to the list of crap maps..

I loved that map before.  It had it all:  Great bushes to spot from cover from arty, good lanes for arty to shoot.   I'm withholding judgement til I get more experience.

Not played it yet, but I do not think being unbalanced is a big deal, for any map. Being balanced would be boring.
