You can find images of the maps, along with their names, in the Current Maps thread.


Also, you can edit your poll and add selections.

ToD is worst map hands down, especially on epicenter.

 

at least with ocean the game keeps moving... on ToD its always a stalemate.

I concur.....epicenter is a bad idea for any map.....Tears gets even weirder with standard now, because the bases are mostly rocks.

Mountain range isn't on the list, but Mountain Range.  It simply isn't built for anything other than battleships.

Epicenter on New Dawn and Trident is an absolute blast; had my best Dunkerque and Colorado games on Trident/Epicenter.

 

New Dawn is just brawling fun anyway, so the mode doesn't really matter much.

 

Tears of the Cruisers... Agree that's the suckiest map for Epicenter... I think the only map that might be worse is if they started doing Epicenter on Okinawa.

All maps after tier 5.

 

The maps are simply a short cut to insanity after tier 5.

oh yeah also I wanted to say that I've played Mountain almost exclusively as a DD skipper and I didn't find it unappealing.

There's nothing wrong with Epicenter, except on Tears of the Desert.  And even then, it's not really the fault of the Epicenter mode, so much as it's the fault of a bad map made worse by a game mode that a terrible fit for that map.  I mean, putting the Epicenter caps in the center of a ring of tall islands is a TERRIBLE idea.

My favorite was the Mark I version.  It was fun.

Mark 1 was the best, though Mk 2 wasn't that bad.  Mk 3 is just a white painted version of a half dozen other N/S or E/W layouts already in the game.

IIRC, the biggest reason they supposedly changed away from the mk 1/2 to the mk 3 was that the mk 1 and 2 versions were "too big".  Well, fine, but that's no excuse for fixing the map by cropping some of the space in the first 2 rows and columns.  The area covered by C3 to K10 is absolutely great.  Some open space, but some really interesting ambush areas in the SE of the map.

The current version of Islands of Ice is just a bland white generic WoWS map that desperately needs to be reverted to the original version with some cropping that I describe above.

OP, you're missing the "Best map" poll.

But ok, here goes.

Best map.

1. Ocean.

and 

2. New Dawn.

 

Worst map?

Tears of the Desert.  The Epicenter version, in particular.

Unable to vote.

This sailor deals with all of them regardless of the ship serving on.

This sailor is not a 'wuss' cry baby.

best is Shards but worst is probably Two Brothers just because it's the most repetitive.  Some games on it are fun but in general it isn't that fun to do the same thing almost every match (and hope your DDs aren't afk).

I was going to register this complaint too. ... ..I don't particularly dislike 2 bros. but it does come up too often.

I've changed my mind actually.  Two brothers can be stale at times but one thing you don't see as much is failure to launch. I'm starting to hate North because it has led to more frustration at my team's bad positioning than any other map in the game.  I don't mean on the side I don't like but people just not doing anything useful.  I think we all slog it out at A by mutual consent to get a fight going than anything else.  It has a lot of cool stuff to it but the meta is not really there.  People just seem to lose their minds on this map.  Another problem is that you can have an epic fight and win on any part of the map but it will mean nothing because, as fortune hid its face that day: your team took no caps.  The game is even worse in standard battle mode.
