WOW 11 flags to cap(defend) !!! I was not expecting this, very very interresting. With a Push mode, this will be quite interresting, and I imagine the more the german advance, the more americans will get tanks to defend. And I also like the fact that we will be able to fight on all around the map. This map definatly looks more interresting than I tought, thanks devs for your incredible work.

And another question, how big is the map ?

I apologize for such a spotty update today. I was busy going back to college, and barely managed to get this update out. Perhaps I'll release some more pics or vids since this map is so diverse.

So, which part of the the Nordic countries is St. Vith in again?

It's half naked people on boats. That's all.
Here in Finland we call that "summer".

 Wow, it looks amazing!!!

 So apparently there are no flag limits in BF2...........or are there?

Is it safe to say this map will have the most flags of any map in FH2?

Will it have 16 & 32 player versions?

Having play-tested this quite a lot, I can say this is probably my favourite of the BOTB maps in FH2.  And I'm mostly an infantry player ;)

:) Nice, another winter map, which is my favourite setting. A screenshot of an enlarged minimap would be nice to see. Or is it confidential?

and there ARE many of those

Tanks or open areas?

Open areas. I wont say what you can't see mate :) Eint my place.
But I can say this though. if you ever saw those History channel 3d Re-enactments of greatest tank battles BoB, this map totally reminds me of them. The way you can suddenly run into a Panther in a narrow rubble-strewn street and try desperately to reverse over tank traps and debris, only to realize the guy hasnt even seen you yet. Or you are forced to bail because you know you are going to get it.

Its epic.

I think the Germans get something like 2 PIVs and a Panther from the start, and later another Hetzer and some more tanks at the southern flag. The Americans have about the same amount, perhaps one tank less. I think they get the M36.

Who cares? That looks like THE map to lay yourself into a corner with a MG and defend a flag. :)
Does it have this "Brest feeling" (no pun intended)? With it´s narrow roads and heavy fighting?

As if everyone didn't have it already. It's so easy to get without even trying.

Most flags can, and WILL be approached from multiple locations, so lying with a machine gun will get you a knife in the back or an HE blast from a tank or AT gun.. A lot went into the push system in this map. I am yet to find a flag that will fall by a single capper hiding somewhere, without a squad landing right on top of yoyou... or an HE shell.
