Nice post ENO - I'm always about winning. You want to explore, better get a fast med and kill the other team's mediums before they get you. :izmena:

 

The great news is that while the reds are busy typing about a truce, I am exploring the map and setting up to kill them. I like to let them know my stance on a "truce"  by putting a round through their hull.

Welcome pops, great bunch of guys here. 

 

I agree Eno, no truces,  I saw that the first time I was on the new map, all green said no. Has anyone figured out the best tactic yet? I have been on it maybe six times, three times thru the buildings with two epic fails, three times going around the bridges and finding firing lanes into buildings and  came out on top.  Cap has been a cemetery so far.    Are bugs fixed yet? Ran into invisible reds once,

I had bugs galore (mostly invisible red tanks) when playing the evening after the new update. Those seemed to have been on the server side, because the bugs disappeared without an update. I love the new map. Best move seems to be to set up a firing line with the entire team spread out around the cap and let the Reds come. I agree that going to cap is almost guaranteed a loss. I also had some good luck running a flank after most of the Reds were accounted for. I was able to get behind them in my fast T44 and put shots in them, then the red team got a animated by crossfire. The losses were mostly due to team cohesion or folks rushing cap. In one case, I could actually convince an IS to stay back (he got shot at running into the cap and would have died) and we were able to win the game letting the Reds come.

It really does not take Unicum level play to win most, if the team has a minimum of cohesion, but the latter is asking for a lot in pub games. Anyways, I like the new map!

Haven't been in game much of late, busy with the Honey Do List. I am moving back to 2nd shift at the end of July, should align my schedule better for platooning in the future.

I think the bugs were fixed within 2 days. I've run the map maybe 6 times, and been lucky enough to win all but one. I have started on the same side of the map every time strangely - port to my left and bridges/hills to my right. So far for me it's been roll slow heavy into the port area and slowly work angles and side scrapes moving toward cap. In mediums or fast heavies that are not top tier I've gone hunting in the hills by the bridges.

 

If you go flank to the bridges go fast. I've found the map is new enough that half the time much of the enemy team is naval gazing or considering options instead of moving and you can set up in a good hull down firing position with multiple lanes of fire before they get moving in force.

 

It's an interesting map so far, but one I have not learned all of yet.

I keep getting North spawn just about every time I've played the new map. It's very odd.
