Imho there is more walking in the new one! It's more difficult to drive in the new one, all the roads seem like dug out from the ground, the Matilda is a real pain manuevering. Of course Crete is a rocky and hilly island but I bet it had atleast decent dirt roads.. Generally the old layout was better, except for the textures and the flat mountains.

The following maps all warrent a place in the mod:

Alpenfestung......................8/10 Lots of toys - fun Arnhem.............................9/10 Great fun Atlantic.............................7/10 Something different. I enjoy it, but it's not suitable for lots of players Battle of Foy......................7/10 Fairly good Battle of Orel......................7/10 Could do with a bit of optimisation, but otherwise fun Battle of Pavlov...................5/10 Unbalanced: Often takes Russians only a few minutes to cap every flag. Replace SMG class with kit Battle of Stalingrad..............6/10 Difficult for Russians. Remove rifle grenades so the boats can land. "push" flags would be good Battle of Valirisk..................9/10 Great map. Will be 10/10 once tank destroyers are modeled. Berlin City...........................8/10 Much better than vanilla version Berlin Outskirts....................8/10 Fun map. Russians need good teamwork Breakthrough.......................6/10 It's OK, but I find it lacking in action Crete.................................6/10 Would get a higher score if it wasn't so hard for the Germans Fall-Weiss...........................8/10 Nice map, could do with a few more vehicles Gold Beach.........................9/10 Great map. Would be perfect if the British had more tickets than the Germans, and was made a "push" map Bulge.................................8/10 Always a classic. Germans have to go for the throat from the start. US has to defend properly. Kharkov Winter....................7/10 Germans need decent AT firepower, but otherwise good fun. Omaha Beach......................9/10 Would be perfect if the rear flag was uncapable The Storm..........................7/10 Has potential, but unbalanced at the mo. Put 88's in the Germans uncapable spawn. Maybe a Tiger there too. Zielona Gora........................6/10 OK in small quantities Iwo Jima (FH version)............7/10 Much better than original Karelia................................6/10 Too small, over too quick. The map needs to be re-worked with Finnish equipment. Could also use another flag. Prokhorovka........................5/10 Too laggy, in need of tank destroyers Wake (FH version)................6/10 Give Japan an extra 100 tickets, put a working gun on the beached DD. Remove "that" AA gun.

The following maps should be dropped imo:

Battle of Makin.....................3/10 Boring & unimaginative Saipan................................1/10 Complete wank. US need ticket bleed, Japs need AA guns, Bugs need fixing, then maybe 5/10. boring Adak island..........................5/10 unbalanced: Japan needs to hold too many flags to stop ticket bleed. boring El Al...................................6/10 OK Kursk..................................7/10 OK Kharkov..............................5/10 Winter version is better Gazala................................6/10 OK Tobruk................................not played Phillipines............................3/10 boring. Too many Elcos, too easy for US to retake flags. Battle of Britain....................not played Bocage...............................3/10 always has been/always will be; crap. Midway...............................not played Guadalcanal.........................2/10 always has been/always will be; crap. Vanilla Stalingrad..................3/10 See my comments on Pavlov

I was planning on making a thread to discuss the option of dropping most of the Vanilla BF maps, but I think I'll incorporate my thoughts into this post. Two reasons for removing vanilla maps: a; I believe FH can do a better job b; the mod has plenty of maps, so why clog it up with substandard DICE efforts? Most of the battles deserve a place in the mod, but please don't make us play the boring old DICE maps.

Actually the roads are crete were terrible, that was an actual problem was transportation on that island. Hence realistic. The MatildaII is bugged, but no worries, we have a new one in the works and you got the MarkVI which runs fine over those rocky slopes.

yeah and they took away the far base which acted as a bottleneck for the team attacking it.To be truthful the new crete just plain sucks it's all infantry combat with so much walking.The old crete was much better.Plus the axis just get one god dam ju 52!!!!!!!!!! one! and it's usualy a newb thats in the pilot seat happy to fly straight at the brits aa guns
