Amazingly, I saw Ocean TWICE during 15 Coop battles this morning and this is literally the first time I have ever seen this map more than once in a single day. I also saw it on Wednesday. It is wonderful....

I love it because Tank Destroyers, I mean HE spammers can’t play peek-a-boom, and because bots can’t crawl around the edges of islands like cockroaches.

I'd rather see Ocean than any other map - don't see it enough

 

It's funny because years ago people around here whined about seeing Ocean Map too much.  The hilarious bit was that most of the complaints were by Battleship players... The guys that benefited the most from having long, wide open, clear lines of sight.  No places for Cruisers island humping.

 

WG yielded and Ocean became rarer to see.

 

As with many things with this player base:  It gets what it deserves.

Most maps with their overley tall 'mountains' just look like they inundated Monument Valley.

Perfect example of this is "Tears of the Desert" .

Except there have been a lot of naval engagements where naval combat was close to land or around islands.  Below are just a few, and I'm not as big into naval history as some guys are:

 

Battles of Narvik, 1940 where the Kriegsmarine lost 50% of its Destroyers.  HMS Warspite and her escorts came in trapping, and wrecking the German Destroyers.  Warspite even kickstarted it by sending a catapult plane first that sunk a U-Boat.

Guadalcanal, a.k.a. "Iron Bottom Sound."  Battleships are in this graveyard of warships, too.

Some others:

The US would conduct amphibious operations for New Georgia, and follow it up with a land campaign.  The Navy would be big parts in this as it contended with IJN sorties to supply troops and supplies to counter the Americna effort.  The USN fought heavily to keep the troops secure.

WWII Pacific, Vella Gulf.  Kolombangara below is a volcanic island.  It was so large that the American Destroyers who laid in ambush did so at night, within the shadows of the volcano, out of the moonlight.  The Japanese had no radar, had no idea the Americans were there in the dark, camping in the island's shadows.  The Americans with superior intelligence giving early warning, and radar knew quite well where the Japanese were.

Massacre at Surigao Strait.  Complete with island camping ships and even Destroyers surging out from islands to make torpedo runs.

Below is for Operation Cerberus, the "Channel Dash" to bring the two Scharnhorst-class, Prinz Eugen from out west to Germany.

Savo Island at Iron Bottom Sound.

Another one for Iron Bottom Sound.

Below is not for one battle, but for the South Pacific that became a major, all arms theater.  New Guinea, Rabaul, Port Moresby, Guadalcanal, Solomon Islands.  All major objectives and many battles would be fought here.  The Battles of Coral Sea, Bismarck Sea (more like a massacre), and many, many battles for Guadalcanal and the Solomon Islands.

You can thank the players back then for that mess.

Many of those maps show land masses with escarpments to the outside of the battle area, not IronBottom Sound for sure but most show engagements that happened in the open areas of the maps  

Just to take one map as an example;

The forum doesnt represent the playerbase on this map. If you only looked at the forum, you'd think this is was one the fav maps for the majority. It's very mixed reactions when actual in-game.

Also alot of the forum that clamor for this map, usually are least effective on it; since they can't leverage the concealment w/ or w/o islands. Coops maybe they do alright, but coops in ocean isnt anything; since the bots in coop are programmed to perform so poorly. 

edit: that said, I like ocean every now and then. It's a little different, but it usually doesnt play out how alot of forumers think it does (at least in pvp).

This one looks like it could be added to the game! So many historical battles could be remembered in this game. Yet we get fake battles. 

According to wikipedia, the Philippines is home to 7,641 islands.  The country is dotted with the stuff.  But yes.  It was a naval battle ground when MacArthur fulfilled his promise to Filipinos that he'd return.

There would be a lot of fighting in the air, land, and sea for the Philippines in 1944-45.  You can tell from that Combined Fleet link that the IJN treated the threat of American invasion very seriously.  If Japan lost the Philippines, American forces would be standing on the lifeline Japan had to the resources of the Dutch East Indies.  The IJN threw everything they had for the Leyte Campaign.
