Hi everybody, playing on islands of ice during this days I was thinking how they changed this map. For me last configuration is not that bad but a little anonymous. It has no particular characteristics and seems like many other maps in this game. So I wanted to know if you would like to reintroduce the first layout of this map as an alternative. For me it was great, I particularly liked the archipelago area with a lot of low islands in south east. Let me know your thoughts

The only thing I wish for is them removing the epicancer mode from this map. But yea, OP is right, older iterations were more interesting than what we have now.

i dont mind the new map. the old one was great as well.

The weird thing is that they have become 2 completely different maps.

i mean you could put in the old one and the new one and have 2 maps not remotely the same.

The main feature of that map was the possibility to have close quarter combats between those islands. I still remember it was an off limits area for BBs during the old days of 20km Shima and no radar for cruisers.

I'd prefer the even older version of the map, without the islands in the middle. That would be a nice variety:Smile_great:

Would love for the map to make a return, still fondly remember chuckling to myself while I watched BB's sailing round the 2 Islands in the north.  Seriously though this was a good map.

Eh? The pic OP has is the oldest afaik. That's how the map looked in BW/CBT. After that we got the same map, but with the middle island fiesta removed. After that it turned into vertical island line, and now we have the current version.

Ah, right. Then I would vote for the second version. Some empty space is nice.

Personally I liked that "island fiesta" alot, how every battle usually started with BBs going up in battlelines, exchanging salvos with each other. I Remember how I got my first ever die hard when zigzaging around those islands with Yamato, and a NC rammed into me :Smile_veryhappy:

I did enjoy the old iteration and I would like it to return, however I thought the reason they changed it was that most players found it too complicated with the open space.

Honestly all they needed to do was to make the map a bit smaller, cutting off the potato spots top left and bottom right.

Agree - was a brilliant map - I liked the narrow passages and then coming into different arenas. The present one seems just like all the others now.
