There will be one with next patch for T8-T10 and two were just added in recent past, weren't they?

come on, people - be reasonable. its not like WG can SELL maps to us... im guessing its the least profitable thing that wg can do... :D

also, a GOOD map is impossible, since people would still find something to complain about, just like the most realistic of all maps - ocean (i like that map!) :>

Care to elaborate on what you think a good map is?

The new map is interesting in a way, lots of small island near 1 of the caps. I haven't played the left side of the map yet (always spawned right side of the map the times I got that map).

 

What I do kinda miss is that what makes the lower tier maps so unique: They tend to have at least 1 larger landmass, or 2 larger landmasses.

something without convenient islands close to caps and no cover in the cap circle ...

 

a map with different size caps would be a novelty for randoms ... and I don't mean the concentric BS that was used for ranked ...

Reality is as someone mentioned...maps dont make money directly nor as quickly as ship releases do......

A non-mirrored map would be nice. All look like Rorschach tests currently, and that's incredibly boring.

Getting some of the old pre-map rework maps back would be good too... Like the old Shards. Much better than the current one.

You can't sell maps in bundles and horrendous prices.

Something you can do with ships.

In my view maps with fewer islands. This is not WoT where ships can hide behind trees and stuff :Smile_izmena:

Something like this, having spawn north/south would be LOL. 

They could make the island in the middle heart-shaped and call it Valentine Island or stuff like that. 

It's not that hard to make maps. More variation would be good. Veterans know exactly where to sit on the old maps.

I want a huge island map in mid so that lemming trains find it easier to move around

Actually that wouldn't be a bad idea, just make some smaller islands where those sit behind that try to stop the lemming train.

You'd get lemmings vs snipers, not a bad mode I guess.

I'd like a Three Sisters map, to go with Two Brothers. A choice of two channels with the possibility that the YOLO teams might miss each other completely.

 

Western Approaches would be good, too - some Isles of Scilly style island nests with central cover for destroyers and some treacherous reefs around the outside for  careless BBs to snag themselves on.

New maps would do far more to keep this game fresh than new ships.

 

It's like we're in the SAS and doing the same training in the same padded practice shooting house over and over again, but with a wide choice of different weapons and equipment to use. Repetitive training is fine for honing special forces personnel into killing machines. When it comes to playing a game for pleasure, it sucks big time.

More like, enough new ships, how about balancing CV's, terminate the introduction of submarines, if new ships must be added, actually add some 'real' ships, such as the Italian battleship line, sort the MM out as tier 8 is now pointless and finally, how about MAKING THE GAME FUN AND INTERESTING? The game does not need more high tier HE SPAM horse dung and a 'Stalingrad' alternative branch that appears to be heading in to the game.You will break the game at this rate and power creep every other ship in the game.

 

Yes, some new maps added into the rota would be nice. But only after sorting the rest of the game out first.
