Yeah I got it once last night as well. Like that it felt a lot like thiepval and Heilbronn. Like the direction of the newer maps with more open varied terrain that provides options to playing a map vs the older 2-3 small corridor maps that really limit the way maps can be played. Nice job.

Hey all.

 

Wow, its been awhile since I posted. Mostly I just lurk and gather feedback ;)

 

Jeff Gregg here (Lead Designer)

We are actively testing an increase in this map's rotation in random battle.

You will have a higher chance of seeing it now in tank tier 5ish, but we are working to dramatically increase its rotation for all of its valid tiers.

 

Now it is possible this means you see it MORE than you might. If we see this occur we will adjust again, but the increase will also allow us to gather more heatmap data and objective analysis of the map's performance.

 

See you on the battlefield.

That's cool, should try this for all new future maps for a limited time. :)

Hi all! Bam here, Level Designer for the Kaunas map. 

First off, thank you for your kind words and enthusiasm, I do hope Kaunas lives up to expectations and you have a blast playing the map!
Second, I want to address concerns with the map frequency in Matchmaker. We are getting reports and comments that players are having difficulty encountering the new map in rotation; we investigated the issue and are working toward improving the map rotation so that Kaunas pops more often. 

Thank you again, and look forward to more battles in Kaunas!

 

Thank you to ask of you designers and developers putting this content out! Is appreciated immensely!!

Give 'em shell!

Played it once and enjoyed it.  For some reason my tank seemed really slow though--soft ground?  I like the layout though the north seems a bit bare.  Seems like it would be a lot easier to reset the NW base than the SE base.  Love the little hills and was looking at how they put together the buildings and such.

Great map.  Only played it twice so far, so opinion is still fluid.

 

Lots of bushes.  Smooth terrain for faster tanks to enjoy.  Divided battle spaces, without being a corridor map.

 

The biggest plus (for me) is that it is a new map.  I really think new content is crucial to keeping players engaged.  My tank buddies were all impressed, and had an excitement in their voices that I hadn't heard in a long time.

 

Bravo, BAM1500.  Looking forward to the WIP map and all other future content.

On the e-f 8-9 lines. About as close a reference as possible. It's on the high part of hill over looking base in the little v shaped valley/crevice in rocks.

I was stuck there ( pretty sure it's the same spot) in a tortoise for a bit, but I managed to get free after wiggling around a lot. Glad no-one caught me up there. Looked like it high centered.

Bring out the community map, this is a very good map and not Kaunas.  Did you run out of water and mountains?  Why so many stones?  Again a scrap map.  Great.

I Don't like it, too many things, too many options, not cleare enough, confusing.

Wargaming be simple, your best map is Prokhorovka.

Fun map.   For tanks pushing north out of town.  Be careful arty can smash you hard.   When pushing into the town don’t go alone.  It works  best if more than one goes and push the roads evenly
