I got to thinking, how about several low tier maps get put into high tier map rotation, not as a common match but like 1 in 10 chance.

you realize that on low tier maps, high tier ships will get spotted and shot at from spawn, right?

I agree with this assessment.

One aside though...  The Big Race map could be made playable by high tiers with one minor change.  Move the spawns into the extreme SE and NW, and it might just be possible for ships to be safe at their spawns.  It would, of course, still be a small map for high tiers, but it might be a playable one, given the unusual layout.

Well, it will stop people back-rank camping, won't it? :Smile_hiding:

well with maps. No one is going to be happy, High tier maps IMO give one side an unfair advantage. They're good looking maps but not fair for both sides.

Battles would be quick and dirty, no where to run and hide, no max range sniping, bow on tactics failing because torpedoes everywhere, it would be a brawlers paradise

 

Maps like Islands still have usable island cover, but are close enough to hit everything

Lol all cruisers will die at the start of the game on Islands and Polar map, no where to kite and maneuver. DDs will torp each other to death while bbs gets spotted from the get go. CVs too, they will be lit up at 00:00, focuse fired upon (which serves them right), and die.

Big race wouldn't be ideal for t10. I don't think a single t10 ship would be able to take full advantage of of any features on that map.

OP you being an exclusive BB player who is good obviously would want to one shot us poor crusier players :D

For  cruiser players at T10, range, positioning and islands are more important. Small maps would be detrimental to cruiser players as we can't run away and kite burning you big BBs. :D

Absolutely yes. The campfest is so bad at times that this'd be good payback for that crappy playstyle.

The players downvoting are simply more worried about keeping their stealth than about high tier matches being played properly.

Big Race was designed as a tier 1 and 2 map. It should never have seen tier 5 ships or carriers. It is too small.

The same can be said of islands.

What we need are appropriately sized maps for tier and maps with lots more sea room.

That would be great motivation to not be AFK at battle start, like I often see.

Tier 10s duking it out on maps like Polar, Islands, Solomon Islands, would be intense! :cap_rambo:
