I thought this "map" was removed for good a long time ago, but i just got it twice today in just a few matches.

 

Why has this stupid so called "map" not been removed yet? It only works for one ship class,  it spits in the face of cruisers and its bland as water, which coincidentally, is all its made up of.

 

Yes, this is a rant, but i cant believe that there is a single person on this forum who thinks that this is a good "map", if you do, please do speak up. If not, why the ever-living taco bread is it still in the map rotation? 

 

//rant over, please remove this sheet of H2O from the map rotation.

I like Ocean. Most realistic map.

 

It's, perhaps surprisingly, more dynamic than most other maps, because there aren't islands to camp behind. And it provides a significantly different style of gameplay for the same reason. I say this as someone who's played all types of ships on it, on various tiers since it's been shuffled around a bit, and I've never found it boring.

 

I also think it shows, at least to me, that the ships that are the most fun to play are the ones not geared towards camping behind islands, but for fighting on open waters. You know, like real warships were.

Some players still like to play on the devs map-template. Fine for me as long its rare.

But you cant call it a map.

This is a map resulted from player complaints about unrealistic maps.(Real battles where fought on Oceans)

Since players got it they where unhappy with their fulfilled wish. WG rolled their eyes at these crybabies and reduced the probability of this map to appear in rotation. (They also improved the island graphics several times)

This Map still existing is WGs way to say be careful what you wish for. This Map is the answer to all complaints about unfair spawns and map advantages. Also it's quite fun to play once in a while and forces you to adapt your playstyle and learn more about your ship.

ThisMap ain't stupid. It's the perfect historical balanced map we always wished for. (Yes we the players wished for it so stop complaining)

Most battles in RL, were done at sea and not hiding behind silly little islands. We should have more open ocean maps.

You mean like ones with different colour water?  How much variety of ocean do you think is needed?

Not only it's a "good" map. It's the BESTEST map and the only one, that should be available to all tiers in different sizes, as it shows the battlefield that was used for most naval battles. Water. Lots of it. No bushes islands to hide behind.

 

I love this map. I enjoyed each and every single time I played on it. I want it to be the only map for Epeencenter Battlemode. Seriously...

I like it - though in the past I did get it when in the Tier 3 St Louis - not a good map as the St Louis is VERY slow and you spend all your time chasing the action. Not had it for a long time though.

Biggest argument for the map seems to be history, i couldnt give less of a rats [edited]about history, this is an arcade game, and gameplay should always come first, history should only be a vague guideline for looks and feels

But last time i had this map was over a year ago :Smile_sad:

Should be a mandatory map for any cruiser captain because it requires you to learn how to position properly, how to dodge a EDIT of incomming salvos and how you might even need to go silent in between shots.

Ocean was never removed, it's just moved to tier 10 games with a rather small chance to get it.

 

Spoiler

 

"But I was playing tier 8 / 9 not 10!" - was there a there 10 ship in the game? Yes? Then it's a t10 game.

 

 

And yes, it still is the worst map in the game

A forum post from the U.S. server:

 

https://forum.worldofwarships.com/topic/165997-the-ocean-poll/

According to over 50% of over 200 players answering to the poll, they would like to see the map come up more often than it is. And only 25% of them want to see even less of it than it currently shows up. 

I personally only play t8-9-10 battles. And haven't seen Ocean for the last 2-3 weeks. But I'd love to see it more.

If only the map chance probabilities would be exchanged with Shatter... :cap_money:

I've had Ocean 3 times in the last 2 weeks, I quite like it.

 

That said if people camp at max range like any open water map it's a disaster and it's a complete nightmare for cruisers who get annihilated by BB guns.

Its a great map... IF... the team as a unit know how to play it. If you get a bunch or random players that just sit by the computer and drule all over the keyboard hammering away at it.... its a bloody nightmare. And getting that map in a cleveland now... I just laugh and quit and swap to a different ship.

I hope you don't do that as it's against the rules.

Even on a map that totally sucks for your ship you should always play as well as you can, it's a team game and treating your 11 teammates to you bailing to port is not on, ever.

Same here, I never had any troubles with this map. I like it!

People saying using islands isn't fair or something clearly don't play cruisers.

 

Try playing Mogami, Cleveland, Worcester or Des Moines in this map and come back telling me again how fun it is to be utterly unable to play.

 

This map caters to BB players, long range HE spammer and stealth torpedo DD. Everything else is literally unplayable. Even CV have a hard time on it as both team are usually moving in a single, big pack.

 

It's a good map for half the ship of the game, while the other just run for their lives and try desperately to be somewhat useful or at least to have some kind of fun.

 

Like it or not, who cares, but islands are a very important part of the game. It's the island that creates the whole dynamic of a map, and knowing the good spots, the line-of-sight between them, and the good, usable covers is part of what makes a good player a good player. Some ships are designed to use covers.
