GAME MAPS AND MODES

578fc59a-aca3-11e9-be84-38eaa735f4cc.jpg

The legendary white facade of the cliffs of Dover has looked over the final resting place of many a ship in the annals of history. In Update 0.8.6, a new map called Crash Zone Alpha is set to appear in the game for Tier VIII–X Random Battles in Domination mode. The map has two versions: with three and four key areas, respectively. In Random Battles played in Domination mode, the key areas are not congested with islands. The islands are located along the flanks, making approaching them safer and flank attacks more effective. Some of the islands have elevated areas with different heights, so care should be taken when choosing cover. In Clan Battles the "home" key areas of the teams are located quite close to each other, which will force the teams to seek new combat and attack tactics.

 

Three key areas

Four key areas

The Greece map has been updated with the addition of sunny weather. Besides this, the islands located rear of the teams have been reworked and will now act as more reliable cover.

The updated Raptor Rescue operation is back:

AI opponents have had all their skills, upgrades, and enhanced consumables reset, and the composition of enemy groups has changed.

Aircraft carrier bots have returned to Co-op Battles. Now, a player on an aircraft carrier will face not a battleship, but an aircraft carrier. Moreover, bot-controlled carriers may also appear in battles for novice players and are accessible in Training Battles, too.

Not bad - but ...

did not WG lament recently, that there are so few games in Midtier ? And then there is only ONE new Map for Hightier ...

 

To make Midtier more attractive a few new - and attractive -  Maps for T4-T7 could help a little

As previously stated during the Public Test, everything seems to be fine with the updated Raptor Rescue scenario. The enemy carriers don't seem to do much though, the surface ships are by far the biggest threat, especially since they often go straight for Raptor with great persistence, even if other targets are closer and are attacking them.

 

I had a very bad feeling in me Perth when the MM gave us no BB but three DDs instead when trying it for the first time on the live server, what with the generally poor state of gameplay on top of it being the weekend and all. Turns out however that it can still be done, and indeed five-starred, by a reasonably competent group even against those odds.

Further feedback on raptor rescue:

 

this op is plagued by bugs such as cv plowing itself into islands and getting stuck, and losing, the cv going at full steam ahead without concern for its safety, and the fact that it still seems to use the old burn and flood times as well

Captains!

 

As the Update 0.8.7 will come live tomorrow, I have to lock this thread and move it to the Archive. Thanks for understanding :Smile_honoring:
