Pacific personally. As much as I love playing as the Soviets, or against them, I get tired of spending so much time squinting at my screen figuring who's who.

The Pacific is nice and bright and sunny, no worries about ease on the eyesight there :)

I like Pacific most. Especially the new FH maps like Saipan. And also Midway -one of my favorite maps.

Then comes Africa and Western Front i both like same. And then the eastern front. ( i just hate russians that's has to be the case i don't like any map of em and play anytime on the german side in these maps LOL)

west front (brits versus germans) is my favourit front, though the east front (russians versus germans) comes pretty close (is pretty well a tie).

I couldn't care less about the pacific though, i always hope that any pacifi maps ends ASAP so i can go back to the european or african theatre.

The whole Eastern Front, especially Finland and Russia. That is what I find the most interesting historically. However, in FH the Eastern front is very poorly represented and the least interesting section of the mod.

Eastern Front should definitely get more attention. Most of the maps are outright horrible and don't really represent the way Battles were mostly fought on the Eastern Front. And the Soviets have like.. what.. 6 or something new ground vehicles of which some are from the very early days of FH and represent that quality wise too.

I find the Eastern Front a lot more interesting than the Western, African and Pacific one historically, but it's lacking loads of essential German and Russian equipment which makes it the least interesting in the mod at the moment.

I really dislike the most of the maps too. Again it's my personal opinion, but I don't really find maps like Zielona, Orel, Kharkov Winter, Stalingrad or DICE Stalingrad fun at all. Storm is not that bad, but often plays very poorly.

Prokhorovka on the other hand is pretty fun and nice looking, but it has a weird disconnect bug, so so much for playing that one in .66.

Valirisk is decent too. Karelia used to be cool, but was completely raped by adding certain vehicles and such.

It really wouldn't need much to work to make it hella interesting, at least work only specific for it. I'd mention for the Russians the ISU and SU-series, new T-34 models, T-26, T-28, Pe-2, I-16. For maps few huge steppes for tank combat and some city and forrest combat.

For Finns Suomi SMG, A StuG IIIG with correct Finnish modifications, BT42 and T34, T26, KV-1 and such with Finnish camoflage and modifications. There are lots of interesting themes for maps too. Might I mention, there are lots of fans who would gladly do all this stuff for Finns if FH only accepted their work.

For Germans the Panzer III and early tank destroyers, Marder and such, properly modeled early StuGs.

It may look like a lot of work, but most of this stuff is already under development as far as I know and the chassis of the already existing vehicles could be used to create almost all of the vehicles I mentioned. There would also be dozens of fans who would love to donate their work for FH. A lot of these vehicles could also be used on different fronts too.

I don't really have a preference, but I chose Pacific because it has Midway, which is my favorite map. I can sling a rifle anywhere, but the Pacific has the only good maps where anyone has a chance to fly without being taken to task for not saving planes for skilled pilots. (BoB is ok, but needs to lose the chutes, and BtR is ok, but too dark for me personally, and why the Swordfish???)

voted western europe.

I play as infantry 95% of the time, and my favorite maps have a lot of cover to hide in. My favorites are Goodwood and Nordwind, which is why I voted Western Europe. The Pacific theater is a close second though. I love all the maps except Midway (just because a lot of the time you either control the whole island or none of the island, and it takes a long time to find someone to fight).

Western front, and specific the normandy-campaign and arnhem44 for sure. ( the german site ) Omaha maps can be boring sometimes. suprised to see that alot of guys also like the western-europe maps actualy.
