Now I can't speak for others about getting rid of this map, but one map that just seems to make so many players go full Darwin Award on is Shards. This map can just makes me shake my head everytime I see what players are doing. 

I know that there are players who suicide on all maps, but Shard is like suicide central when it come to random.

I clicked on this thread assuming it was gong to pile in the hatred for Ocean. 

My bugbear is just the lack of new maps - more (even ‘unbalanced’) maps are direly needed. Just don’t used unbalanced maps in competitive and it’ll be fine.

I did too and I was pleasantly surprised. I agree on the lack of new maps which could easily be addressed by scaling maps up or down in size.

Shards is too broken to fix.

A fun idea, but completely [edited] in practice. Diagonal maps in general suck donks in a uniquely Mexican spectacle (HAPPY CINCO DE MAYO!) , but Shards is...special.

I was expecting Tears of the Desert, haven't seen ocean in forever, so that one is my least favorite.

I just wish we had some asymmetrical maps still.  Every map now is just mirror image islands for both sides.  Sure, its balanced but it's so much less interesting.  As long as the asymmetry doesn't provide an advantage to either side, I see nothing wrong with it.

I like Shards, although I like the old Shards better.

I hate Sleeping Giant the most. There are just too many islands, causing prolonged standoffs and it's a waste of time for all players.

Maps haven't been an issue in term of "fair Play" for all ship classes Clamm.

If it was, I am on like Pooh on honey...

sharts is a very poor map, pls remove, its far too small and having vertical islands just makes both teams do a clockwise maneuver before sitting either side of the islands waiting for someone to do something stupid.

Personally I don't care for Tears of the Tier 8s, Islands of Ice, or Shards but I do like Ocean as there's no islands to camp behind.  

Meme Maker - shhhh-im-hiding-now8

Every time I see a BB hiding behind an island I think of this

Me too. Shatter is everything wrong with WGs mapmaking in one map

You really gotta work to make your team survive their life decisions.  I see so many mistakes. Like the Haru in this match at the start.  His reasoning is valid, but gave him away.  Early smoking, not turning off AA like one Shima yesterday, and more are such baseline mistakes that it really comes down to the player.

THIS ^^^^^

I DETEST  the Shatter map. Hands down, IMO, the worst map in the game. There are others I dislike but it is what it is but this one just sucks.

I actually like the reworked Shards. Have played it in Co-op and PVP and think it is good.

Shatter though just is so awful. I cringe every time it pops up for me.

Shards I don't mind.

Shatter could use some improvement.

Ice map should go back to their second version from long ago (the one with the little islands South), or maybe bring it back with another name.

Mountain Range I dislike for Ranked Sprint and I seem to get it more often than not. If you are in a cruiser trying to island hug for protection (as many cruisers should), and the whole red team moves to the other side of the mountain chain you are out of luck. If you move to the other side. you've got no protection and you might as well be in Ocean.

Lastly, they should rotate Ocean more often for fun.

Shards is an odd way to spell Mountain Range.

:cap_yes:

No matter what ship I bring in that map I always start the game thinking I wish I had a different ship. Not a fan of Mountain Range either.

True fact, a long time ago the oceans were freshwater.  Then WG implemented Islands of Ice, version 1.0, with OG torp detection and 3x Kitikami on each side.

That's what I was expecting too.  It was a pleasant surprise to find a complaint about a different map.
