I was just privileged to be part of Islands of Ice - Epicenter and oh yeah a Snow Storm.   I just don't know what to say...  Map didn't feel right at all.  We won, but it felt small and awkward.

Ran into it twice yesterday. Dont think players know how to approach it yet. Also I have no idea what the snow storm does.

It is localized effect that reduces visibility in a certain area instead of the whole map, it moves from one side of the map to the other.

Map doesn’t deserve to be called Islands of Ice; that title belongs to the original, and even the second iteration...

...what it is now should be called ‘Trident Reversed;’ it certainly isn’t Islands of Ice.

Epicenter huh? Haven’t seen that on that map yet; something new with the last update?

For Epicenter battles, I thought that the storm would or at least could just stay in the middle for the battle and not move side to side like "normal"

It covers the “epicenter” and doesn’t move

Inside the storm, it reduces visability similar to how a cyclone does now.

Outside the storm, it will reduce the range you can spot targets through the storm if no one else on your team has direct LOS to the target.  The storms move across the map except in Epicenter battles where it will remain stationary over the epicenter.

I miss the old ice map actually...

I miss the original.

Honestly, they should have just given the 3rd and 4th (i.e. current) versions of the map different names and treated them as completely new maps, rather than new versions of an old map.

Agreed.

I must be the only one that halfway likes the snowstorm...then again, I wish they'd take the epicenter battle mode itself and throw it as far away as possible.

I usually enjoy epicentre. Looking forward to this.

Same.  I get tired of all the whining about Epicenter.  It's a perfectly acceptable battle mode.

I'm in the camp for bringing back the old islands of ice. New version just feels boring. Epicenter doesn't bother me. Localized storms are kinda interesting.

Doesn't just reduce visibility, there is also an accuracy penalty for firing at ships inside the storm.
