Whatever happened to riposte?

So WG released a rank specific map 2 seasons ago and we've never seen it since. It was a decently fun map and I wish we would see it again. It was kind of nice having a map in ranked that you didn't see in random. 

Is it because of it being a perfectly mirrored map and they started going to these 3 offset caps that made it hard to use it?

recall the name?

The mirrored map that was released for ranked the last time ranked was T6.

OP, I think that it probably has more to do with the map size than anything else. I think the map is just a bit too small for T8 and T10 gameplay.

It's 42x42, plenty big enough, especially for t8.

Yeah, saw that when I looked it up on the wiki. I can swear it felt smaller though. The islands around the two caps certainly would feel extremely restricted, even for T8 ships.

Maybe WG didn't like how the map performed last time they had it in ranked, so they pulled it from the rotation for now. I seem to recall all my games on Riposte revolving around the southern cap. Maybe one battle where the northern cap was the deciding battle, but the vast majority were decided by who took and held the southern cap. Perhaps WG saw this in the data and felt the map was unbalanced.

it sort of looks like a condensed version of Tears of the desert.  Kind of a clear middle area surrounded by small islands.

  I played the last T6 ranked but cant specifically remember this map.

But yeah -- sure why not.  Variety is the spice so why not reintro it as middle tier map option.
