More maps are needed!

A lot of people have commented that WOWs becomes too repetitive and due to this, the game lacks long term appeal. Personally, I have found that the multiple tech trees, campaigns, and special events have kept the game relatively fresh. However, I do think that this game needs more maps. Playing the set of maps over and over does get repetitive and does make the grind seem a little tougher. I would like to see some open water maps with special missions (i.e, carrier escort) etc. What are your thoughts?

It's really been awhile since they've put in a bunch of new maps though I appreciate their redesigns of various existing maps. Would love to see Ocean, Riposte and some of the scenario maps in regular rotation.

More maps are a must. Bigger urgency than new ship lines, but that's just me.

More and larger maps would be great. The sooner the better. How much trouble could it be to take Ocean and randomly sprinkle the already made islands from other maps to make a few more maps? Random changes to spawn points would be great also.

They could also use the scenario maps for the other battle modes,

I don't think even new maps would liven it up much. A lot of the maps they make nowadays are too same-y.

They could easily add more maps by taking the ones we already have and either increasing or decreasing the size of them based on tier. They already do this for Clan Battles and Ranked, should be no problem to get all the maps we currently have into rotation for all tiers. Kind of a no brainer. Adding Ocean into the mix more often and for all tiers would be fun too. 

Honestly I think what would be best would to put a Random Map Generator into the mix like so many other games have. It would be a big change to the game and breathe new life into it. Forcing players to think on their feet is much better than playing the same old game on the same old maps.

Yes this. I have been playing years and can only think of the names of two maps (Solomon Islands and Two Brothers). I can recognize the names of the other maps but would be hard pressed to identify them from an untitled map. They all seem too much alike and honestly, pretty boring.

There's only so many things you can do with islands and water before they get very samey. Sure, they can look different, but it will usually come down to doing the same things with a different paintjob.

More maps isn't enough.  Too many of the existing maps are much too similar.  

Also, maps with special missions are Operations.  Raptor Rescue is a carrier escort mission.

 

What's needed are maps that are ORIGINAL and different in their design/layout.  For example, we have the current Islands of Ice and the original version of Islands of Ice.  The current version is a boring clone of nearly every other battle tier 9 map with a white paint job.  On the other hand, the original version was VASTLY more unique with a far more interesting layout.  I really wish that WG would bring back the original version of Islands of Ice, even if they had to crop off the top most row and left most column (and rescale) to make the map a bit smaller (one of the supposed complaints against that map).

Yep yep yep.

There is no reason why you could not have a different map every time. It could be randomly generated. And I dont care if its nicer for one side or another. Most games are over I. 5 min anyway.

They release a new map like it was an amasing thing to invent.

Thats the problem with t10. Same map every time.

A new map is incoming in update 0.8.4. Its called Greece

Meh.  From what I've seen of its minimap, the Greece map looks like just another boring clone of all other battle tier 9 maps.

PG, this is sort of true.  But not necessarily.  Yes, there are only so many things they can do.  But the problem is that they're not attempting to be original.  Every new high tier map they've given us for the past couple years or more has been the same thing, time and time again.  3 rows of nearly empty water north and south (or east and west for E/W oriented maps), with 4 rows full of islands in between.   Every fricking single time!!!

How about an Ocean map populated by icebergs that move around the map randomly?

New maps are nice.. The randomness of each maps needs to increase.. I get tired of getting just one map for an entire day with 2-3 others sprinkled in..

There are basically 12 keys on a piano. there is only so much you can do with 12 keys. Eventually it will all sound the same :-)

I agree, especially with small island clustered maps. I have no problems with Islands but we need more maps with more water in them; in addition to invisible map borders like WoT.

Randomly generated maps wouldn't look as good.  WG's map makers, regardless of what I think of their lack of originality on the design side, do a wonderful job of making the maps look great, visually speaking.  I seriously doubt that randomly generated maps could come anywhere near close to looking as nice, visually.

I do agree that WG acts like their new maps are freaking gifts from God or whatever, when in reality, they're just boring clones of previous high tier clone maps.

Yup we definitely need more maps. 

Heck the old shards or some of the islands of ice can we broughtback under a new name just for random games. 

We currently have two iterations of North available

I was plying some low tier game to help a friend grind his ship yesterday and....wow. It was almost as if I discovered some new maps.

 

It would be great if WG could redisign some low tier map so they can fit for mid-high tier game.

There are maps WIP. They revealed them about 2 months ago. Feedback was not very good so I think they're revamping them. @Femennenly might have a bit more to say, but I think that's what happened.

Heyo Captains,

Hanger_18 is correct, a few months ago we announced in the Dev blog 3 new maps that were incoming, source: 

From these three maps, one of which is set to be released in 8.4 - Greece:

https://worldofwarships.com/en/news/public-test/bulletin-084/#maps 

 

We do have plans to finalize and release the remaining two maps in the near future, if there have been changes made to these, I can't comment on at the moment. We are aware there is high demand for new maps and we have a department who is dedicated to bringing more to the game.

Fem,

I'm definitely looking forward to new maps. I'm getting pretty tired of Two Brothers. I like, I don't want to see it go away, but I'd like to play it less often.

This would be awesome. I like this idea.

I've never played Ocean. I am looking forward to it. I wish Ocean occurred more often. (of course I might change my tune once I play it...)

And a Random Map Generator would be cool too. I have faith that Wargaming could do it in a way that worked. Keep it simple and balanced and I think it would be fine. Maybe they could test it out for the next April Fool's event.
