I was going trough the patch notes of 4.10, and among various things touched and fixed, last line informs us that:

Icebound has been smoothed out in various areas where tanks were flipping too often.


 

One of the worst maps in rotation, incredibly stupid physics on this map made it one of the most hated one in game. So if flipping is out, then map could actualy be useful, so I'd go a dn say that Icebound was buffed in 4.10 update. Can't wait to try it with Tippy.

Monte Rosa from Dominations mode (source PC's WoT 2013)

Rename on console as IceBound .

Better version of Icebound could be interesting.

This is a big map, partity open space.

Has potential to be better.

Isn't Monte Rosa summer map? It would be nice to have summer version on console, I like Icebound but summer variant would be nice :)

Icebound - Summer. Something's not quite right here.

On the other hand… players who can drive well enough to avoid the bumps just lost an advantage.

Bad map design is bad map design.

But summer version of Icebound (no matter how silly it sounds) does sound intriguing. Main issue of this map are those snowdrifts which make it unplayable for faster tanks.

They could just made summer variant and name it differently... Monte Rosa :)

I don't think a Sunbound version would be any better. Same map layout, still not the best imho.

 

This map has no flow, no defined flanks or strategies. People are usually lost playing it and it can be quite frustrating.

"For some reason you feel the need to troll stink bomb a statement of fact."
