I've only seen this map once, looked really nice, hope it gets a "boost" for map rotation.

You can always visit it at WS as many times as you wish.

 

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, M7, T-50

It's a map from War Stories, not exactly a ''new'' map, just reused in MP, same way Berlin map was added to rotation from WS.

Played it twice so far in multiplayer and really only once in WS mode. It’s a huge map...still need to learn how to play it.

I didn't even realize they added this map into the game, yet.  Apparently it's on low rotation or something.  Of course, I only JUST got the Nomanhan summer variant map for the first time a couple of days ago, and that thing has been out for a while.  It'd be nice if they could put newer maps on a higher rotation when they first come out.

I might be wrong, but I think I recall hearing something about they wanting to check the balance of a map before putting it on high rotation.

I just popped my cherry on El Alamein for the first time here. Took a total of 326 games since the map was released May 15th - way too long IMHO.

Oh my, I still  haven't seen it a second time and I only got 200 battles since it came out.

Could be another 400 before seeing it again then... :teethhappy:
