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?

 

​The only place I ever had success with TD's on Icebound was in the Siege mode Swedish TD's hiding somewhere in the hills, and occasionally when some big Japanese heavy was sitting on top of a hill showing me his ammo rack. But the concrete snowdrifts were definitely hell for anything lighter than a heavy.

why so much hate for icebound, i had some good game on that map.

You can have good games on any map!  People hate Icebound because it causes HUGE graphics issues!  It’s also lots of corridors and bumpy terrain and some players don’t like that very much.

is it me or does the British tech tree look different? maybe i'm going crazy

 

Hmm, not sure - you've got me doubting myself too now lol.

 

Eitherway though, there's room enough for the two new tier X tanks upcoming (as 'we don't remove tanks', unless it's the 4202)

Yeah just get rid of icebound and Berlin, the superheavies are obsolete. Long live lights, mediums, non super heavies, and every TD that's not the Jagd E100. They need to learn that they need to get a new tank to remain competitive. Only open maps, or if you wanna be nice at least let us choose the maps that we don't want to play on.

But think for a second what that would do to matchmaking in a server population that never reaches five digits. Even on pc they don't let you do that

 

For the record I like Icebound, but I'm a light tanker who spends most the battle flanking outside of the city, so maybe I'm not experiencing the issues people are having. I will miss it, but not as much as I miss Serene Coast! Tbh, I've always hated Fjords for being all bottlenecks and corridors.

Map randomness is part of the toss of the coin, did I pick the right tank? Picking your map would go something like...... prokarovka, 7 light tanks and 8 arty a side. Himmlesdorf... 7 maus 8 E100 a side

Apologies about that.  The post that was published in FB was in accurate. There are no Tech Tree changes.  The list of changes in future server updates will be developer approved next time before we release the information to avoid confusion.

Today's downtime notification adresses the following:

 

-          The map Fjords has been added into the map rotation

-          K9 Emblems are now available for purchase

-          Emblems and Inscriptions are now visible on the Hidden StuG

-          Removed the following maps until performance issues are resolved

o   Icebound

o   Berlin - Winter

o   Ghost Town – Storm

 

Yes! No Icebound! Gosh, I hated that map so much! That map was just...it was just way too much! I had problems with it. But good that Fjords is back! Can't wait to play in it and to finally enjoy being back in it. It's been a very long time and I can't wait to master every location in that map! Thank you so much, RaiBot, for the Icebound map replacement! Uhhh, what an awful and mediocre map it was. I'll always like, (I mean... not always, but most of the time) lose in that map because I just didn't know where to go and the map was just way too confusing and frustrating. I'm so happy it's gone...for now! Anyway, much appreciated and much honored...if unless it doesn't get added back into the game. Ahhh, what a relief! :B    :) :popcorn::great:
