Question

Just wanted to ask:

(a) how many maps there are in this game?

(b) how are they chosen (I seem to see the same maps 3 or 4 times in a day), at random or does the result of your last battle have a bearing?

(c) why do some maps only seem to appear for higher tiers?

(d) is there the hope of a lot more new maps at some point soon?

(e) lastly, the map squares do they have a specific scale i.e. 1 square = 2 km ?

Thanks

31...40 depending on which "special" ones you include

More or less random

Maps are limited for what tier plays in them, mostly bcuz of their size

 

Keep in mind that only the top tier ships have to fit the "requirement" (for example Ocean is t10 map, but t8 and t9 ships still play in it as long as the 10s got it)

"A lot" - probably no, not on any kind of "short" or even "medium" length timescale

New maps overall? Probably, one gets released every now and then

 

Last one released was Sleeping Giant, I think Atlantic was the one before it... Takes a while generally

It's 1/10 of the maps edges length, so anything between 2.4 and 4.8 km depending on the map

There is a mod in the Aslain mod pack which displays the length of the current map squares in km on the minimap.

If you pay a little attention, you will also note that the range circles around your ship "look" much bigger on the smaller maps and vice versa.
