Otherthreadly conversations about blocking maps, interfering with discussion of the Kewl Heavy Premium that's back.  Want to help.  Start thread.

 

If you could block unlimited maps, what ones would you block?  

 

Or, if the list is substantially shorter, which ones would you play?

The only ones that really make me cringe are Ensk (standard and encounter), Empires Boarder (standard and encounter), and Minsk.

Currently have Ensk and Empires boarder block - really wish it included the encounter modes as well.

This has been discussed before in a few other threads, none that are current I think.

 

That aside, selecting the field of battle is something most commanders desire so as to take the best advantages to have the best chance at a win.  For me, I am have more of a John Cena US Championship view, for those of you familiar with the WWE.  That is to say, when ever I get ready to battle, it's an open challenge.  Any map, any tank, I don't care;  you want some, come get some!

 

And if that isn't clear, maybe this is;  no map blocking and I am happy to play on any and all, no matter what vehicle I bring to the field.

I have blocked Himms and Paris. Wish I could block a couple more.

​Ban:

  1. Fishermans Bay
  2. Paris
  3. Poland
  4. Glacier
  5. Sand River (nothing wrong with the map just the players on it, no one wants to play the map any more)

True - I've seen it before.  Came up in the German Heavy Premium Thread and I figured I'd take shameless advantage of the suggestion rather than reviving a necrothread.:teethhappy:

I want more

  • Larger Open Maps 

I want fewer 

  • Small Urban Knife Fight Maps
  • Tight Corridor Maps
  • Maps with most of the playing area 'greyed out' or inaccessible

In other words - 

Prok

FIERY SALIENT 

Malinovka 

Murovanka

Fisherman's Bay 

Sand River 

Karelia 

 

...

 

Large 'mixed type' maps are good, but small ones not so much

Those are easily the worst maps in the game, you must really hate yourself.

Grin.  You only like small maps?

I like maps that allow me to play without getting cancered instantly after being spotted.

I'm with you. I blocked Mines and Ensk, and wish I could block all the other tiny maps.

I would disagree and all those maps are some of the best maps in the game.  Open, non-corridor maps are the best

I have Paris and Minsk blocked currently, I used to have Sigfreid Line blocked but I have since restored it in exchange for Minsk

I have Glacier and Westfield banned. I cannot say that Glacier is a bad map, I probably just never learned how to play it well. And Westfield is the only map in this game I truly hate.

I'm ok with everything else.

Glacier is funny - because stupid people.  There is literally no tactical advantage to the boat, but 2-3 tanks rush there every game.  Similarly the heavy brawl area is stupid - because once you win, the prize is being a shooting gallery for TDs and arty. 

 

OTOH - the map is easily won by whichever team rolls the 'Medium Route' (through the hills opposite of the the boat - and then it's GG and why didn't you support me?

Glacier is one of my favorite maps can play any tank on it just wish they would nerf some td positions

I had to think about what you wrote for a while - because Arty really isn't an issue.  Sure, circa 2012, Arty could one shot you as soon as you were spotted (Thanks E-50-2...) - but now?

.

It's more of an annoyance than a threat.

 

...

 

And THAT'S why you don't like the best maps in the game?  Arty?

 

.

Weird

the rest of the maps i can tolerate.

Arty is as problematic and cancerous as it has always been. It's far from the only reason why open maps are horrible but it's one of the big ones.

I get to send Ensk to the hell it came from and never see it.  I fully support this.  :great:
