Please, no more extreme weather maps. They're pretty but just not fun to play on.

 

At least reduce the view range penalty a bit.

Hello tankers!

 

In celebration of the upcoming warm months, we decided to release two new desert maps: Kasserine and Airfield-SandStorm.

 

Please let us know what you think! :D

 

Thanks!!

Poster meant that he can only spot tanks close to him, but since render range isn't decreased he's getting shot from across the map while helpless to spot them at all. I agree, it's broken, but nothing new.

the thing most people hate about the weather maps in just that, you can only see maybe 200M but the render range is still 445M and the circle showing how far you can be spoted does not adjust for the lower view range,  If you adjusted the render range and the circle showing how far you are detected they might be playable.

Have not played the Sandstorm map but I am in the category that weather maps do not improve game play. The other map I have played twice first in a light tank and it was perfect. The second in a platoon and the comments in game chat were all good.

The weather maps take away from learning the game and its mechanics. It is  not just having to change style of play, you have to stick close to teammates and hope they are not campers, or wanting to fight you for the same firing spot you are in. More and more the weather maps have become wolfpack swarm games and if your team doesn't realize the game usually becomes a one sided blood bath where isolated tanks are quickly destroyed. The other effect in weather maps is that as soon as a spotting has occurred it causes a Walmart gate crash as everyone heads to the area leaving the rest of the map unspotted and isolated.

These weather maps ruin gameplay. Who ever thought reducing spotting range while leaving the render range the same needs to be fired. 

 

 

No body wants to move on these maps. Makes for some real dynamic game play.

Kasserine is a great addition. Lots of space, and lots of contrasting geography. Not really a fan of the Sandstorm Airfield, but definitely a plus plus for Kasserine.

Kasserine is pretty rad!  I know the feeling about the sandstorm effect.  I also hear the sound of players not liking sandstorm maps >__<  

 

i dont mind sandstorm maps :) buttt, it would be nice if they had the normal and sandstorm of the same maps in the rotation at the same time!

Apologies to anyone on the green team if I am in a fast tank on the extreme weather maps. I will move a bit and camp.... or dash across the map with my eyes closed. If these feature too heavily in the rotation I will just play Arty as this does not give me motion sickness, although my M55 may give others a headache.

Only had one go so far on Kasserine. Nice map, I thought. For storms, I'd rather have something like a Storm Season, where the storm could be going on at the start of the match and end half way through. Or start halfway through. Or roll through at a random time for a minute or two and be gone. A sudden sand storm or a thunder storm in the middle of a match could turn the tide of a losing battle. Probably not possible right now, but a few years down the line perhaps it could happen.

For God's Sake, She doesn't even understand the difference between Spotting and Render range. This is the person that is supposed to be the link between the players and developers. Is it a surprise they keep spewing this weather effect cr4p?

LIsten, Cat Person, there is nothing to investigate!!! The broken mechanics of weather maps are well documented and raised a million times on this forum. If you had bothered to understand how the game works, you would have communicated this to the development team(who clearly don't play the game either) a long time ago.

So do your job and make them address the render range discrepancy.

What is the point of asking us for feedback if you don't even comprehend what is being said!

and that's your opinion... I personally love all of the storm maps... i love being able to be more aggressive and not have to worry about getting lit and can then easily stay undetected after firing

 

You're being less aggressive according to your own testimony.

Kasserine was in the first set up maps I got today and had no idea it had dropped. Really nice and open map, would be fun in a fast light but I was in my Chi-To and headed west of the giant gulley. It was chaos, but exciting despite the loss. A few maps later I got sandstorm airfield in my Sta-2. That was a blowout as we had some great lights keeping the enemy lit up most of the game.

The weather maps look cool but the spotting is broken.  I can only see about one square in front of my tank but if you get spotted the other team can see you from clear across the map.  

 

I wrote a ticket to investigate just to make sure nothing was broken and it looks like it is working as intended.
