When I first checked out the maps I was highly intimidated because of the vast, VAST landscape of the maps. I was worried I would have the worst time with em and will be killed constantly. This was true for the first two weeks but once I got used to the map structures I felt more confident and was being a bit more daring.
The maps will intimidate you and you will get worried and yes it will be difficult to understand during your first few games, but if you keep at it, you'll get the hang on the map and will be able to fight as you normally would
Now I have a general idea of how the maps work, how to play each objective and how to use the surrounding areas to my advantage. Good example I lost a tank by just going into prone in an underbrush. Tank couldn't find me and drove off. So there's plenty of chances for hit and run and even retreats.
in my honest opinion the new mode Tank Supremacy (TS) is a bit broken since you still only get so much ammo and if someone isn't running support and your not in a tank or tank destroyer, your gonna have the worst time trying to fight them off. I still do like the fact that there is about 6/8 tanks at the base and your only fighting for one location. So this leads to some hectic games and some crazy defense plays.
The new vehicles are cool too, but I wish we had a bit more variety. We got our ATVs, AAs with missiles and a few others like the tank destroyer. But maybe add a bit more so we can have some really good and diverse vehicle combat. Thought I won't lie, the gunship is freaking cool! I love the fact that it can change the balance of the whole battle and can make or break a whole team.
But the CQ games are freaking awesome, my favorite map from the pack I love in conquest is Alborz mountains. There is so many areas to fight in that map leading from the mountains peak to a small lake area.
All and all, I like this pack. I think they achieved their goal of making large maps designed for total war scenarios. They could use a bit more sprucing up in maybe the spawns (especially in TS) but this pack is great. Cannot wait for the next one.
Final score: 8/10
*Large and unique map structures
*The addition of the Airship
*Mind blowing graphics
*Takes time to adjust
*Less chance for infantry fights
*not enough vehicles to support the large maps
Note: I will try to do this with dlcs in games we play in the future.
here is my scoring system
10-7 = buy the dlc, it's worth it
6.75-4 = mixed bag, really depends on your personal preferences
3.75-1 = Not worth it, don't buy this piece of s**t
