It is time for this horrible map to be removed from the game. This map is beyond saving and it is the dumbest map in the whole game.

 

The entire match, people just sit behind islands and camp, taking shots over islands and never advancing. There are no tactics involved on this map, only a game of who can camp the best.

 

High tier maps in general are beyond low quality, and need serious help.

Tears is really only a bad map for Epicenter.

Tears of the pushers is an attempt by WG to make an giant 1v1 destroyer arena that indirectly nerf the IJN dds even more. Unfortunately this was exploited by radar and smoke cruisers camping around the islands that occasionally catches careless dds. According to WG logic, here's the most plausible change:

 

Add more islands on each side of the centre, and move them further away from the centre, so that any bb and cruisers that dares to push can get focused to oblivion from campers behind islands from further away, and IJN dds can go f*k themselves trying to contest the center.

I actually like this map.    it really rewards pushing the flank tactics .  once you collapse a flank, you can roll up down the  middle.      the issue of course is that most people just won't do anything except hide.

Epicenter should be played on Ocean map. Now that would be fun. Defend the base should be played on Ocean too.

needs to not have those rows of tall islands to hide behind, because that's all everyone does.

Hide behind the islands

You can't even flank around the islands effectively when there is a CV around, because you will likely be the only ship up on the flank, while everyone pitches tents on those islands.

I'd argue standard ToTD is worse.

It either needs epicenter removed, or needs hard cover added to the thunderdome area.

 

Like those islands in the middle of C on Neighbors and A on Land of Fire?

Just kill it. What if it breeds with another map?

 

In terms of hated maps; such a Love Child could be called 'Shards of the Desert,' or perhaps 'Strait of Tears.'

Not sure I've ever seen it in that mode; just Domination and Epicenter that I can recall...

 

Taking advantage of ARP commanders in regular IJN ships recently to grind my ARP Kongo towards 19 points using Atago, (grind her towards 19 points, and works for Yamamoto campaign and whatever missions were running lest week...)

 

...such fun that was...

 

Tears of the Desert; Epicenter mode; FOUR FREAKING TIMES IN A ROW...

 

Anyway; I thought the map's name was 'Tears of the Cruisers.'

That would be interesting.   I'd be up to give it a go or two.

No one could complain about players hiding behind Islands.

Tears has its ups and downs, but it's playable.

 

Mountain Range, on the other hand, can go to hell and burn for eternity.  I have no love for that map, nor do I know of anyone who does.  It simply needs to be taken out back and put out of its misery, like a lame farm animal.

Everybody parks on the fringes behind cover until one team gets a numerical advantage and pushs at the right time. Otherwise its' as dull as ever. Give everybody long-range radar just for this map..that'd be fun! First player to poke his nose out gets it shot off! On a more serious note, learn to play it. It is one of the few maps that I am on the plus side in games won, and my stats are meh....

I believe the name of the map is Tears of Cruisers, thank you.

 

As to the post. I do feel something must be done, I just don't know what.

As I tell everyone else, I just call it Tears, because nobody likes it.

Ted and Bill would most likely say "Excellent Mappage"  I always wondered if it was just me seeing this style of play on this map

I find TotD fine the way it is. You have one guess where my vote went.

Funny how all maps have something 'wrong' according to 'someone'.

 I'm thinking the real problem is called 'failing to adapt' to the map you are given.

This thread is just another 'Map Whiner' rant.

 Go back to WoT where the Map Whiners really did a 'number' to that game.

Love the map and love it with epicenter.  Especially when playing a DD that can invisitorp (Fletcher) or a long range sniping cruiser (Hindenburg) or any BB.

 

All you have to do is read all the reasons why people hate it and do the very things that counter why they suck so bad at this map and game mode.  I get some of my biggest games in this map and mode because people just do the same thing over and over again while complaining it doesn't work.  I'm not going to get into how insane that is because... damn.

 

I don't understand the capacity of so many players to suffer from such an extreme level of tunnel vision thinking they are forced to play a certain way on that map.  Especially when their strategy fails over and over again.

my highest xp game with over 4100  base xp was epicenter on this map using t8 fubuki in t10 match with unicum division on the red team.  It was really fun match that i will remember.    The biggest thing to remember on this map is to ignore the center  with exception of 1 DD in case of epicenter.   then play normally by pushing one of the edge with strong force.
