So am I the only one that thinks the new pearl river map is absolute trash?

George whatever floats your boat Whistling Death. I wouldn't trust the word of anyone who logs into their alternate accounts to load up a poll on arty or to up vote themselves. Just seems like a guy that you cant trust what he does or says. By the way your cute little childish GIPHYs are against forum rules for size. Might want to be careful it might result in the rest of us not being able to enjoy your valuable contributions.

So sense there are a bunch of people saying that I just dont know what I am talking about, let me explain why the new pearl river is a bad map. I will explain each flank and why they are bad.


1. (left side/rice fields) This side might be one of the worst map area's I have ever seen. You want to play the lower ridge? get face smashed by camping TD's. You want to play the rice fields? Have fun getting there without losing 70%+ of your HP before getting there and good luck doing anything if you dont have turret armor, also you are the main arty target now.

2. (middle) This area is an absolute cluster-f**k. You get the faster tanks that are smart enough to know the rice fields are useless that all bum rush middle and any tank that is not fast enough to get there before the corner campers get set up just turns into another corner camper. On average 60-70% of each game on this map is played in that small little middle area. 

3. (right side) this is about as casual as you get for a heavy tank area. if you have turret armor and gun depression, play the left hill. If you don't have those, play right side. You might get one person who is ballsy enough to play the road that connects middle and right flank but usually no one does because of how useless it is.


Here is how I would fix pearl river.


1. Give much more cover on the right flank. That flank literally just turns into a camp fest almost every game so there needs to be more opportunities to outflank and play positions.

2. Make another way into middle town. Forcing it to be a gamble race on which team is faster or sends enough tanks to take the middle town is not fun and uninteresting.

3. Widen out the right side to give the heavy tanks more options and make the road connecting middle and right flank more useful. 


With how pearl river is right now, its just a more clumped up and overall worse version of mines, and everyone knows mines is not a good map.

The old Pear River was outstanding. This suck the big one !

Those maybe some rose colored lenses because it is pretty much the same as before.

Old map to New map checklist:
-  make it flatter.
-  eliminate certain bushes.
-  ensure it’s even more corridor focused.
-  add more birds, butterflies, etc.
-  apply soap/oil to completely random rocks.

Map needs more vegetation to use as concealment.
