This occurred to me the other day, as I was thinking about how islands shape the meta, but a lack of islands means, basically, ocean.  Which doesn't really add much variety to matches (except that that map shows up rarely).  So, how to map maps and tactics unique without simply turning maps into island humping.

Reefs.  And shoals.   Make use of that "not all ships fit" aspect by making obstacles to movement based upon water depth.  You'd end up with maps that direct flow to a point, you'd get spots passable by smaller ships vs larger ships.

It might change the meta a bit.

They did have this at one point and everyone apparently hated it or didn't understand it, so they removed them

Okinawa used to have a few islands that blocked passage but not spotting/fire in C; not sure if they’re still there after the recent ‘improvements’ :Smile_sceptic: on that map.

Heyo Nuke, 

We are definitely looking at map elements that will add variation into the current offering. With the recent map addition of Greece we included a special area where ships could shoot through a gap in the terrain. Which with it has some interesting interactions.

We're also currently experimenting with some levelution options for potential future maps as detailed here:

 Fem,

I like unbalance because it means that sometimes you have the advantage and other times you have to fight for it. I miss those days.

I found this out the hard way last night in Ranked when I couldn't figure out how I was being spotted......then shot at.  Interesting feature.

Let me add this....have islands that are closely clustered together but have dense FOG layed in so that even ships with hydro or Radar cannot reveal unless close up if another ship is nearby.  The FOG never moves or dissipates.    That would make for some surprise ambush games and would be fun...ya think?
