Hello PAIN,

Since this is the only way to contact you I hope you will forgive the post. Sir, I was and am willing to accept the whole we have to keep 360 support after all it is a sizable part of the player base and income. But can you please explain why the file size is an issue when it comes to the maps? Sir the map issue has become a real problem Widepark and some other maps are just way to small for the higher tiers, though many maps just "share assets" they have become visually boring and is hurting replay value in my opinion. I do not know what the fix for this is nor will I re-hash the solutions offered by some here in the forums. But Sir it is truly my belief that something needs to be done to remedy this sooner than later,


 

Next, MS is allowing gifting now it is region locked and does not include currency packs. Would you please look at adding more lower priced or barebones bundles to the MS store for the Holiday Season? Last When will we see an American Flag Tank Earn Op?


 

Thank You,

SteampunkPagan.

 

 

Edit:

Well the upper tiers on very small maps has a fix:

Pontiac Pat has given the answer to the file size question I asked here:

Maybe if you call him sir again he'll answer

 

:teethhappy: on a serious note I would much rather see the old maps back I never thought I'd miss dragon ridge or hidden village this much. As for live oaks I still cry now, that map was so good.

Like oaks was a decent map, I liked it.

 

Playing tier 10 widepark or mines is just one of the worst experiences at the moment, might as wll make a map that is a single corridor and everybody starts lighted up, at least it would be quicker.

 

But please, just delete the hidden village map, just deleted from the server, let's pretend it never existed.

I really miss some of those maps. Its less fun without them. This really needs priority. This map rotation has gotten stale. Not good for replay or cash to you WG. I agree with Steampunk Pagan on this.

You have got more chance of winning the lottery that bring PainGoD down from his Ivory Tower to this forum and responding.

 

Its a sad fact that WOT's head developer can not answer a simple question let alone provide an approx time scale.   

 

Yeh Widepark in high tiers is just silly but then again hell might as well put Province into the mix at Tier 10 .

If they have a map limit, I would like to see them rotating them in and out monthly.  But I don't necessarily want some of those old maps back.  I would like to see Live Oaks back--prefer old Live Oaks.  I'd rather they either make some new ones or bring some others over from PC.

 If they are going to delete maps to make room, my vote would go for ardennes and port. I really hate these two.

It's so sad, I've missed the maps so much. Live Oaks was Daddy, I even partially miss Great Wall. I just want them back 

 

 

Tanks that I actually enjoy playing: Leopard 1**, T71***, ELC***, WZ-132***, T-54***, E 25***, T49***, Skorpion G***.

I miss both Live Oaks and Pearl River the most.

If nothing else it would be nice to rotate the maps in and out every couple of months.

Heck, sometime I even miss Sacred Valley, Dragon Ridge and Great Wall.

Pearl River, Sacred Valley, Dragon Ridge and Live Oaks are still on the Map Overviews.

Agreed. I'd trade both of those for just Live oaks tbh. That map was good for every class which is rare.

As someone who really enjoys light tanks, this map rotation blows. I'm trying to grind my 13 90 and keep getting small urban maps. It effectively takes me out of the equation for most of the game. Very frustrating.

I’m apparently in the minority, but I miss Great Wall. I will agree that it was a bit of a corridor map but in fairness, we still have Abbey in the rotation. It is, in my opinion, the worst of the corridor maps. At least Great Wall has 4-5 different areas of approach. I would gladly swap Abbey for it. 

 

Thinking about it, you could make a case that almost all of our maps play in a corridor fashion.  The maps that were removed were maps that light and medium tanks could do well on.

Nice post OP, should have included a case of Vodka with it and some cat pics. Might get a bit further with your request :trollface::P

I'm all for the suggestion of dumping War Stories. The mode is near pointless, and I wouldn't have touched it after the first one proved to be a glorified proving grounds if there hadn't been achievements for it. Make it a separate download and give the core game some content that people actually want.

I totally second this.   Although the revamped port is better then the old.   Ardennes would be ok if it was lower tier locked.  Live Oaks would be a great addition into the map rotation again.   

 

PS - Am I the only bloke that misses the OLD Westfield Assault map?   I really enjoyed that setup.

Old Westfield. Old Prokorovka were fine I wish they had left them alone. They just don't play the way the old ones did.
