Hi,
as I mentioned in my last dev blog, we are currently working on a patch to improve the balance of the new maps. We decided to create this thread as a place to gather feedback and data to help us with this task.
So: What is your favourite new map?

As much as I would like to say Sammatus, it's Arad. Gameplay flows well on that map, altough, I have a feeling russians are winning it more than germans. I have no idea why that would be though, germans should have pretty competitive armor force (is there difference on spawn rates?) and map doesn't seem to favour one side either. Yet, I have seen numerous games where germans are stuck in their main and I have never seen it other way around.

Dukla pass. BEST! Why? It has awsome long range tank combat!! And that is why it is good to play even with 20players! And atmosphere on this map.... Im speechless... SO Realistic! Really so good atmopshere and map and so realitic.
Dukla pass needs inf spawn points for russian and we are getting them. Thats great. And little more inf vehlichles in main baze for both teams.Especially russians.

Also,Sammatus is great,especially Maxim. That firerate and sound... :)

All maps are great looking and fun playing.
Pegasus & Sammatus also have cool 16p layouts

In the future I would love a more depressing feeling in game with rainy, muddy bad weather. Most maps have a nice looking sun in this mod :-)
Eastern front night map layouts.

Pegasus. Great details and the COD nostalgia hits me every time.

Arad a close second, it's very well made.

Dukla could turn out to be a very good map with a few fixes and a slight buff for the Soviets.

Haven't had the chance to play much of Seelow nor Sammatus.
This sentence is intentionally left unfinished...

Sammatus, no doubt about it. It's just so awesome to clear the trenches with a suomi or a ppsh. Only thing it needs is more tickets so the battle lasts longer, because now the battles seem painfully short. Maybe it's just because i'm having so much fun playing it. ;D

Kinda weird that Sammatus is so well liked, considering it is an infantry map.

Had decided it was Sammatus, but the voices inside my head told me to choose Seelow just for the sheer epicness.

The Mansion could have spawnpoints somewhere else besides the house opposite it (and its yard). Also, MG's in bunkers are nearly worthless as the infantry rarely comes into their line of fire. Plus at this point of war, even 88's don't 1s1k anything so just die horribly, might as well remove them.

Though, speaking of Sammatus, has anyone ever seen Soviets even coming close to winning the map?

Arad works great, but has anyone ever seen Germans even coming close to winning the map?

Pegasus... making the swimming across river a bit easier would make the gameplay slightly more varied.

Dukla Pass... it's an inferior version of Aberdeen. 'nuff said.

Yes. 100p on a full server experienced it at least once, Soviets won (one time I've been on a server and saw that, I was on the finnish side though)

I saw Germans capturing all flags once, but I had to quit the game before the round ended and dunno how easy it was for Soviets to take them back.

Pegasus... making the swimming across river a bit easier would make the gameplay slightly more varied.
That's utterly silly suggestion, which btw ruins purpose of this map, don't you think?

Dukla Pass... it's an inferior version of Aberdeen. 'nuff said.
I can understand somebody doesn't like this or that map, but you lost all credibility in my eyes by saying that. Looks like you forgot how bad Aberdeen was, you can remind it to yourself here :)

i like forest and trench warfare settings, which is why i chose sammatus since its basically both, but arad is a very close 2nd for me too.
