Lets combine snow drifts, limited view range and a city map........YAY, perfect map for a fast light to play on.

It does? I honestly thought it was removed.

Was just on it in a T-100 LT. So much fun trying to drive on snow drifts.

Weather variants is fine, extreme weather needs to be removed from the game.

Lights tanks need rebalanced(again)

​Update 4.2 and 4.6 were terrible

You're one of the very few who does. 

 

 

Overall the maps are still bad but yet able to get games like this

The render range should be lowered. but be better if all of them were removed.

Will WG ever have WoT offline like they promised?

They were a good idea but the implementation was poor.

I love extreme weather maps.

Then again, I don't use the compass map.

It's not irrelevant.  A little irreverent, maybe.

 

The minimap is even more advantageous in extreme weather variants because knowledge of the location and movements of the enemy over time are that much more valuable.  You might be able to pop the full map to get a glance, but you're not getting much heading knowledge that way.

 

(The compass map is a bit like having extreme weather all the time.)

Dunno if you understand the OP's points. I'm not sure what map Tempest uses, but I do know that dude has pretty great Situational Awareness so any talk of Map use is moot.

You know I'm complaining about the snow drifts right? Try playing anything fast when your tank is bouncing, sliding and trying to flip over the entire time.

They're soooooooo rare I think WG should focus their attention more on stuff that really matters like arty nerfs and stuff like that....

I love extreme weather variants INCLUDING the snow drifts, ESPECIALLY when playing light tanks.

 

I get hit a lot less often when I can juke vertically, too!

 

And if they're going to hit me, it's much cooler to get shot in mid air.

Are you just being a contrarian for the sake of being a contrarian?

 

Not having control of you tank as it bounces, slips and slides over poorly designed map features is not at all fun.

Not even slightly.  

 

Know how hard it is to hit a light?  2x harder when there's a vertical component to aiming.

 

Drive better.

 

I rarely lose control, and even then, that's almost always when I'm rushing to polish off the last few tanks.

 

I wish more maps had these little divots, bumps and ripples.
