So one map back but three are gone? Oh boy, what an exchange :unsure:

Yes but seriously look at the maps and they are taking away, not overly popular are they?

 

That would be an understatement. Poll results about popularity of the maps puts Icebound way ahead of any competition (Poll link is in my sig, so feel free to check)..Berlin is the map added to MP rotation from WS, but obviously that map has lots of flaws and bugs..Ghost Town is NOT REMOVED, only a weather variant of that map is removed (Storm)..

The 13. (Tiger) Kompanie, of Panzer Regiment Großdeutschland, reported on the performance of the 88 mm KwK 36 L/56, when their Tigers engaged the T-34: "First round hits were usually achieved at ranges between 800 to 1,000 meters. At these ranges, the Panzer Granate (they are referring to the PzGr. 39 APCBC ammunition) absolutely penetrated through the frontal armor, and usually still destroyed the engine at the rear of the T-34 tank. In 80 percent of the cases, shots from the same range hitting the side of the hull toward the rear of the tank resulted in the fuel tanks exploding. Even at ranges of 1,500 meters and longer, during favorable weather, it is possible to succeed in penetrating the T-34 with minimal expenditure of ammunition" (JENTZ, Thomas L.; Germany's TIGER Tanks - Tiger I and II: Combat Tactics; op. cit.).

3 MoE tanks: T-34, Pz IVH, Tiger I, Pz.Kpfw. T 25

Fjords is, by far, my favourite map. Thx for adding it back WG!

I think the new (old) map is only temporarily there, because the 3 maps were taken out which were revised.

Glad you are happy.  I thought this was going to make people angry >__< but again, it’s just temporarily until we fix performance issues.

 

YAY!  Icebound is gone!  Good riddance.  You can take your time on "fixing" the "issues".  ("Issues" defined as the map design and the fact that nobody likes it.)

 

YAY!  Fjords is back!  Long live Fjords!

I thought Icebound was okay but not all that great unless you are playing a heavy tank. The terrain would throw around light tanks, the map is too "laney" for lightly armored mediums, the map doesn't have many good sight lines for paper TD's, and arty struggles on city maps. I guess what kind of tanks you play can greatly affect your opinion of this map.

 

I am very glad to have Fjords back though. It is a good map for just about every vehicle class. Is there any ETA on the return of Great Wall yet by any chance?

Ever try shooting on the move on icebound?   Cannot tell you how many rounds I seen going up into virtual space because the snow cannot relent to a 95,000 pound tank (IS).

This is a better update than the Swedish line being added. 3 terrible maps are leaving and a good one is coming back? I might actually play again.

 

If you can take the rest of the terrible storm maps too that would be great, I have performance issues on all of them. They all seem to make gameplay unbearable and not fun at all due to them existing. Oh and something, something frames.

Thanks for posting Rai.  I will gladly trade these three maps for Fjords on a permanent basis.  I rather like Berlin though, but sometimes you must give up something good to gain something great...

Fingers crossed that Pilsen can be an upcoming 'performance issue'....:trollface:
