Had my first game on it earlier. It was a bit like a fairground stall, where things keep popping up everywhere and you have to guess where to shoot next. Huge fun, hardly moved at all. Can't imagine it'll be like that again

hehehehehehe, I was thinking Space 1999...

Ooh ooh oh or Iron Sky...

 

The only way this map could be improved is wih Sharknado’s randomly moving across the map to obscure targets or eat up campers, yes that’s it!  WG do a deal with the film makers to get Sharknados in the game and after 1 minute of actvity they come and eat the camper!

 

We had that sand worm thing somewhere maybe if we could summon it to the ices ?


I will concede nothing : the WR needs to be re-counted - by hand.

I had watched some replays to get myself used to the map before hand.

and after a few games, this replay really sums up my thoughts :

Be aware its not my replay. But I watched it before playing and my games felt like this replay (less the big damage), and some of the readings in this thread also sounds like this replay.

that's why I said pre A team.....he went downhill in the 80s...

The blue max 1960s.....epic film :)

Battle beyond the stars....early 80s...not an epic film

Folks,

 

while WG gives us plenty to moan about, the new map is a thing of beauty.  I think it’s really well designed, with a consistent look, so it does look like a secret missile base, rather than some cobbled together nonsense, and it has a mind boggling set of routes round and through the map.  It looks like it will encourage some dynamic and interesting play - not many places for weak TD’s to camp - lots of places for peek-a-boom and hull down tanks, and some opportunities for some ambushes and surprise attacks.

 

Well done WG. 

 

I love it :D

It has a place for every tank, and it's very diverse

It’s awful for tds. It’s a close combat map, so stay together folks.

You must be unlucky or playing below tiier v :)

I’ve even had it at tier v!  

As others have said gun depression is very helpful although elevation is also useful for a change.  It’s my favourite map.

Been there a few times. Positive: very complex 3D paths and LOS opportunities. Negative: ’arcade’ feeling, tanks would not be used in such environment.

 

It might so complex that meta does not settle for it at all?!?
