So I've pretty much tolerated this stinking crap pile for most of my day. I just played a match in my AMX 30 (great tank btw) and got killed by a waffle that was completely undetected until I was literally able to touch gun barrels with him. I'm cool with the whole "sand reduces visibility" thing, but seriously come on now that's bullcrap. Anyone else feel the same? No? Pls comment.

 

On a separate note, I love the AMX 30 Prot. With the 105. The 90mm is ok and adequate for its tier, but rarely cuts the mustard at tier ten. I suspect the tier ten will be a fine tank. On that WG, well done.

Not a fan of the new maps myself. I think it encourages way too much camping.  I've played blizzard map twice today.  First time was solo and got killed by a TD over 550m away but nobody could spot him.  Second time I was in a platoon where we got shocked by 3 E-100s, a E5 and a Deathstar in a platoon that we couldn't see until they were right on top of us. Thankfully we had more campers than they had attackers and we were able to fend them off.

Played the Steppes map once in the sandstorm. I agree view range is near nothing. Using the Spice Girl Pz I was relocating and didn't get a spot on the red column pushing the center until we were near close enough to kiss and hold hands. I think I got 2 shots off before wrecked since I really couldn't run. 

 

Not complaining, just my experience and see it as a challenge to deal with.

Seriously give the new maps a chance it makes a pleasant change from the standard easy mode. Dont stop is the key "drive the tank not park up" or else "BAM" your fragged :teethhappy:​ .

 

Personally I find both blizzard & sandstorm immersive + awesome, also my vote would be to remove the red enemy silhouettes - more realism.

 

However I can understand your pains as its not fun getting penned by an unseen enemy.

The visual effects look awesome, especially the blizzard, makes the map almost creepy, because it makes you feel alone.

If you know view range mechanics you can do just fine. I like that it completely kills the meta. 

MOEs so I can pretend like they matter

I like it too. I like the way it looks but not so much on how it plays. The maps screw up light tank drivers and force them to either get much closer to the enemy or fight like a largely nerfed medium.

I am not looking forward to playing this or any of these new weather variant's. I do appreciate how they (WG) have tried to change it up though as it shows the thinking is there.

Weather variants are a gimmick, I have no problems with these. Storm variants  promote everything wrong with high tier gameplay.

I love the new maps myself.

 

Tier X TD's had no clue I was there until I rip into them.

Works the other way around for me. Reds don't know my 268 is there at all, even after I fire at them. On those maps it's very, very OP. 

 

WG nerfed TDs, then released maps that murder the view range of scouts and make TDs more stealthy. GG WG, GG.

I got behind a waffle and an E3 with ease in my T62, they had no clue I was there.

 

I think once players adjust it will get better.

I hope so but i'm worried they will adjust by camping. I always expect the worst from randoms. Makes it a pleasant surprise if they do something good that way.

Bad teams can ruin any map or feature, no matter how good it is.

 

I hope I get to play them more but stuck in the see a map once, then wait a month phase.

So what everyone is saying is the entire map is like you're double bushing? Well that's a shame I was hoping for more than that, I though WGCB was taking an anti-camping approach after the last update where they removed a bunch of camping spots...
