Islands of Ice isn't the worst map in the game that distinction belongs to Mountain Range.

I hope this change to Islands of Ice will fix my two problems with this map; Teams mates camping the A cap and No Cover for Light Cruisers to work with. 

Still look forward to a rework or the out right removal of Mountain Range.

Back in CBT...

Those were the days. I miss playing with everyone, unicums and potatoes alike, when it went to CBT from alpha and everyone had to start from scratch. 

back when the IJN had the only battleship line in the game

For me, the main difference from CBT to Full Release is that back in CBT, no one reversed or stopped (then again I only got up to Aoba). Once the game was Full Released, I thought I saw tanks.

ah, that too. I remember when bowtanking and cosplaying a claymore was this dumb, new tactic that all the Iowa boys were using with some success. 

Then I tried Montana, and I remember the first time I baited a shot into my belt armor and bounced it. Never bowtanked after that, just worked on my aggression and angling game harder.

Aside from the way the spawns worked, the oldest version of Islands of Ice was the best.

I wish WG would just reintroduce the old versions of Islands of Ice as "new" maps.

I can play as aggressive as I want in Richelieu whether I am in a Tier VIII battle or a Tier X battle but for some reason, the moment I play Iowa everyone just stops playing and goes passive. It's annoying.

I remember the 2nd iteration, I liked that one.  Only saw it a couple times before it got replaced wit the current one.

Forgot to mention that when I first started CVs and I didn't know what I was doing I would send my Fighters with waypoints and basically zig-zag the entire map to find the enemy.  This map was one of them.

I had totally forgotten about the original version so thanks for posting it.  Based on the current state of the game, I would love to see it come back.
