This is not even the actual "old" one...it is mayb the 2nd or 3rd version...the very first one that existed during beta was a far superior map than any other map in this game has ever been

I never got a chance to play the first one but definitely looks like a fun map, who reckons they should bring them back as separate maps?

Second version was the best, I used to really enjoy playing on that map.  Current version is the worst though.

first version was a pain down south, you kept hitting the islands when your ship was trying to manouvre, the second version is my favorite, the island south are separated enough to allow for direct DD on DD action, the northern area allow great game play for bigger ships. CV's had to scout the south islands in both version, DD's could easily sneak on through an ruin your day.

 

Haven't played the current or new one - they do look boring as hell though, nothing unique in either for gameplay

Fully agree, for me the new map doesn't offer that great an experience in gameplay, I think its too similar to other maps too

The current one as shown above ( previous version ) was ok.It had a few big islands which broke it up a bit.

The newest one just seems to be a typical newer map by WG,where the layouts are all very similar and too symmetrical ( which WG seems to be doing to existing maps as well ).

The current state of maps in WoWS:

So many maps have the same layout.

Big islands in one cap, small islands in another cap, open water in the middle.

 

Ocean best map.

I remember I used to sail my CA to the south though, playing hide and seek in that cluster of island (which CA? Hipper!! Yeah stock hull bad rudder ruined my day initially)

Thank you for the opinions, commanders! 

If you want some more opinions go read some CV threads and pass it on to the devs!

Definately. That should be only map.

The very first map I actually would see again. Very DD/CA centric map. And like someone said, easy to ram into islands if not paying attention. Good for situational awareness. Second version is first with open channel for manuevers. Third is what I know. Latest one is meh. "Rotated to be consistent" lousy excuse. If you are a good player/know how to play even decently, changing rotation should not be a problem.

Right now, WG is changing all the maps to near mirror images. Lazy and boring IMHO. Means if you know how to play one side, you don't need to learn how to play the other. The third version was "annoying" because of Lemming Trains(tm) to top cap when it is i) the most difficult cap to contest and keep and ii) very limited opportunities. People went there because you could not get hit because they can't see you but do not understand the concept "they can't see and shoot but you can't as well".

The maps need to be this way so its fair no matter what spawn you get. No other game ive ever seen has non symmetrical maps like this one does, especially for comp play.

Some maps had advantages around the cap area's depending on the spawn you got.
