    Jagdpanzer E 100 will fix that honey ;d

    Looks like they took Agent Orange too the old console map!.

    Though for PC players sake, I hope they put the tier cap on it like the console devs eventually did. Trying to traverse that thing in a Maus isn’t terribly fun.

      It’s a pretty bad map, trust me. No matter what tank I play, I just cannot find the best location. Far too small for lights, not enough sight lines for TD, arty can strike whenever, and heavies have to deal with it. Mediums get pinned by heavies and TDs in the few areas where they can shoot.

      • DecoNoir says:

        Having played it a few hundred times (especially when it first came out :P) its a hoot at lower and mid tiers.

      • alhambra117 says:

        Yeah, I do love playing it with the low tier lights, but beyond tier 5 or 6 it becomes a right pain for me

        Gotta love how people complain about map being either “corridor” or lacking cover, and cannot understand that a map cannot have a ideal position for every tank to make people think rather than go to obvious position

      • alhambra117 says:

        Its maybe not a bad map overall, but its far too small for my liking, especially for TD and LT

    • Greyson Harvill says:

      Yep. It is a copy of Pacific island

    Is it time to cancel the apocalypse?

    That’s why it’s called “Pacific Rim” not “Rita’s Rim”

    It has a nice atmosphere to it in the screenshots. Though all that sea, a TOG would feel right at home.

    About it’s size. Is it 1000×1000 or 800×800? The effective real estate seems underused as a lot is taken up by useless sea areas. Enlarging the landmass by a few percent would give the island more usable land areas.

  7. isnt that a map from XBOX360 version ? I’m sure I already saw it somewhere

  8. Benjeeh says:

    Dont Care what Anyone says this map looks super fun like the other new maps they seem to be working on

  9. fighting_falcon93 says:

    Wow 😮 Finally a good map 😮 It seems WG is learning, +1 🙂

  10. Renzo says:

    That map is just pacific island from the consoles brought to pc

  11. X-RayCAT says:

    So much beach…… where’s the Hobart’s Funnies tech tree? 🙂

  12. Wulf Corbett says:

    The southern cap looks much more exposed, especially for arty fire. Nice change though.

  13. Laserguided says:

    Good map for suicide tanks. Make the water shallow please.

  14. Anonymous says:

    Yay! Lots of water to drown. I am excited!

  15. metalrodent says:

    Not that new really, been on Xbox for ages. Though this now mean that the single Xbox exclusive map now, well isn’t lol.

  16. to me it’s a good addition, I was sort of getting tired of only having new maps based on the eastern front wich in itself is “funny” since some of those were eventually removed
    we know it was to please the russian playerbase but it was too much, the war was also fought in other places and it was time we saw a new map wich somehow relfected those theaters
    a map based on the pacific islands was a basic addition, now I’m waiting for a proper “japanese” map (because the “Hidden Village” was bad, although I understand their idea when creating it), a proper China based map (I liked Dragons Ridge more than I like the current one with the castle in the middle) and maybe even a map based in Australia

  17. malkowitch says:

    Yey, more water for arty to suicide 😀

    5th picture looks like a warthunder map

    ps. pacific rim- OH I WISH…. but i cant see ChernoAlpha anywhere

  19. zombietropa says:

    Like the look of the map, especially the topography. I’ve always enjoyed maps where the knowledge of how to use hills and defilades is crucial.

  20. Patata Caliente says:

    It’s beautiful. Whether or not it will be a good map to fight on is a different matter altogether. I remember the island map in Armored Warfare… I always thought it was pretty weak.

  21. Dave says:

    Oooooo PvE tanks vs Kaiju

  22. mrwuvems says:

    It’s generally a snipe fight with large areas of no-man’s land in the middle. Heavies generally attempt to push flanks. Biggest mistake is turtling. The team on the hill generally commits this sin and pays for it.

    Stay tuned for the inevitable PC port of Great Wall and Scorpion Pass

    gj copying one of the worse AW-maps … classic WG-move.

  24. Purgey says:

    This looks a lot like Pacific Island on Xbox. And by a lot I mean I recognized it immediately. It’s a very good map IMO though I wouldn’t wanna play any paper TD’s on it. I love seeing it come up if I’m in a medium.

  25. Gieke85 says:

    If this is a 1k*1k map, how does this not have the same problem as Kareilia and Hidden Village had with to much of the map not being accessable?

  26. shankmeyster says:

    off topic: have you seen ESCAPE FROM TARKOV Rita? Don’t know how into MMOFPS you are. It’s supposed to be a spiritual successor to the STALKER series.

    • Shade01982 says:

      Oh, but that looks very interesting. I especially like the part about being able to play as a bad guy and go after players :P.

      I just hope they get the MMO part right and the game doesn’t end up like The Division does, but I’m keeping my eye on that one.

  27. wremisekrummels says:

    oh, that map looks great, le me guess? that is a non PC-version map?

  28. Tom Johnston says:

    First, i like it…mostly. I do think WoT is long overdue for a more Pacific Theater map.

    That being said, i do think land mass vs open water could be increased without loosing the idea that you are on an island. Maybe a 2nd Island…or two islands as spawn/flag spots with a bigger 3rd island between?

    So far as comments regarding driving a Maus….well, rather than Tier limits, why not limit the map to Japanese, American, British and….ok Chinese tanks? Just a thought.

    Oh…i would have liked some Jaegers tooo 😉

  29. Corvi says:

    But but but, where is the runway for those planes ? :O

  30. Squiggle says:

    Pacific rimjob.

  31. Anonymous says:

    I see fast mediums turning this map into a turkey shoot. I’m curious how it’ll play out.

  32. An island map? Artillery scumbags will be scumbags

  33. Nathan Wood says:

    The map from the xbox…wow…how lazy can you get wargaming PC?

  34. tetrapodum says:

    Yummie I love to play in tropical enviroments, sad day they removed dragons ridge …

  35. Anonymous says:

    I can’t imagine how a tank fight would take place there in real life.
    Excuse my lack of imagination 🙂

  36. Nothing says:

    Somebody already compared it to the Armored Warfare map? Looks all to familiar 😉

  37. Sleipnir_793 says:

    If there is a KV-2 on the map, you have your ChernoAlpha Jaeger 😀

  38. S the K says:

    Huh. It looks remarkably like the Pacific Island map from WoT Console. Don’t tell me the console scrubs have come up with a good idea that is being adopted by the PC gaming master race!

    OTOH, the console scrubs are being inflicted with maps that were removed from PC because they are too horrible, e.g., Dragon Ridge and Port. The console scrubs finally got the good PC versions of Sand River, West Field, and Prokhorovka. (Console got the good version of El Halluf a few updates ago.)
