Supercharge: Great early war tank battles Sector 318: OMG! KT, Jagdpanzer 4, Tiger I and Panther all in one?! This is a tanker's paradise. Operation Nordwind: At least I can pretend its bastagone... Blacknight: Lame Me262 whoring. But good tank battles too... Bombing the Reich: That whole hide after loosing factories is gay, but a great air map, soo sexy. Failese Gap: Finally, A REAL BOCAGE!!! Rehinburg: Fun, but no servers run it. God damn corrupt files... Operation Zitadel: Wait... This isnt in, is it? Wanst this one of the first updates posted back in .62 land?
And how could i forget Goodwood? Pitting one Panther and a tiger against waves of shermans is so much fun. panzerfaust ownage anyone?
all are excellent maps, nothing more to say.
great new maps, all of them!!! i want to be able to enjoy Tarawa, without disconnection server problems.
Why is no one talking about prokhorovka? It rules, you can see alot more now it's daylight almost as much as goodwood. and the high amount of tanks.:eek: not like the previous prokhorovka where you have 8 tanks on the german side has now been doubled. and the city has been removed so no more lag when you are playing with great amount of players.
Breakthrough is also MUCH improved over the last patch.
why is it that the new topics are always complaining, jesus christ give the guys some credit, this mod is free damnit free!, if you had bought the mod then whine all you want but jesus christ stop with the annoying whinning threaths.
moto bot how could anyone complain more than you
[color=black]I like some of the new maps, but here's where I have a problem: very few servers are playing any more good tank maps- it's predominantly infantry-only maps, which kinda sucks.[/color] [color=black][/color] [color=black]Another point- what happened to the Eastern Front?!? I mean, Goodwood, Nordwind, Desert Rose, etc. are all Western front battles. I would really, REALLY like to see more Prokhorovka-like maps (especially the newly redesigned one- I love that map so much :) )[/color] [color=black][/color] [color=black][/color] [color=black]Hear that Devs?[/color] we need more eastern front maps! ;) Anyways, that's just my two cents
I must say I´m rather dissapointed with the new maps and I can tell you why.
Fist though, I must admit that all of them look very good and have some stunning details.
But their game-play lacks inspiration and a few maps seem like remakes of older ones. Also I dispise the heave focus on Normandie tank battles that never took place in such a way. The main US/UK AT weapon was the airplane, and not Shermans.
-Prokhorovka: Much better than the old version, with lots more tanks and a better layout. But it has some performance issues. 7/10
-Falaise Pocket has a booring layout and to many flags. You seem to get shot from everywhere and dont know where the enemy is comming from. This map never has a clear front-line and lacks taktiks. 5/10
-Sector 318: Battleaxe in Normandie with a dumb and booring layout. Basicly all you do is spawn, drive up to the frontline, get shot or frag and repeat. I can play it for 10 minuits, but then I get boored because its always the same. 4/10
-Goodwood: A fun Normandie battle. Although I miss some Allied airpwer, it still playes very well and fair. Although a bit more atillery would be nice I enjoy this map very much. 8/10.
-Nordwind is the best new map in 0.65. It playes almost like the "Siege of Bastogne" and has a good balance and nice guerilla warfare. I´d like to see the forrest reach a bit further and some trenches and foxholes added. Still: 9/10.
-Desert Rose: Useless naval combat with little/no impact on the map. Booring and tedious comat. Simply not much fun... 4/10.
-Supercharge: A decent Dessert Maps, although it still dosn´t properly refelct the conditions of the Africa Campaign much. (i.e. forced to fight Matilda II with Flak 88 and Stukas, needs Panzer III and M3 Grant-Lee). But still, the Sandstorm rox. 6/10.
-Blacknight seems like a remake of Alpenfestung. Although it looks better, it dosn´t play better. Most of the time the Allies will be baseraped and after that, the fights often spread appart. Still, this map isn´t as bad as it may sound: 7/10.
-Valirisk, Tawara, Rheinübung, Bombing the Reich: These maps either suffer from serious technical issues (Tawara, Rheinübung), game-play issues (BtR) or I just havn´t played them enough (Valirisk).
