The map design is purely biased for the North team when the islands from North can completely cover the whole ship and that ship cannot be shot at without the South team risking themselves to push to the middle of the map. Meanwhile, the South team suffers all the disadvantages, the islands can't cover them and they can be shot at at enemy's spawn, there's little to no room to escape because you(as a DD) are so close to the enemy while trying to contest the cap, and even if you do escape, you will lose a lot of health.

The radar cruisers from South team cannot get close to the islands because they will get farmed to death. Therefore, they can't do anything but leave their DDs alone in the danger of being full-time radar-ed/hydro-ed, being rushed, being shot at at multiple directions.

And there comes the worst part, the epic center mode, the mode that FORCES every DD to get close to the middle islands where the flaw, stupid design exists creating an EXTREMELY hard time for the South team's DDs.

If the South DDs deny to cap or EVEN TRYING TO CAP regardless, the game will end in 7 minutes because no one can support the South DD and he will die. 3 caps then will belong to the North team and the point will tick so fast that no one can have anything done. Example:

64782702_2155323757909258_8315564401729994752_n.png?_nc_cat=108&_nc_oc=AQn8AXmub_LngMWSkmEtb4rskRzeE-1eXQsZo-zg5GwjRY7zia1utuykaDj0DSuZYpo&_nc_ht=scontent.fsgn6-2.fna&oh=c10d7b36371a3b24d868a78dd5706496&oe=5DA55CDC

The game basically had ended since the Grozo died trying to do what he should have done and did.

Then i also tried, as a DD, and got so frustrated with the map. I could literally do NOTHING, just sat at one square being full-time spotted by radar and hydro, waiting for death to come. That's why this thread is written.

PLEASE WG, just remove the epic center from this map. It's nothing but pure frustration, infuriation for who ever plays DD.

rather than map, i think the main problem its in epicenter mode itself.....
since some people expecting BB,Cruisers,and DD will push together and go middle together....
reality its just gladiator battle between DD in middle and shooting if necessary :Smile_hiding:

Actually, I rather like the epicenter mode, as it basically forces people into the middle to fight, instead of them cowering at the back, protecting thier paintwork....

& if they DO sit at the back, then they are making themselves insignificant to the game,.....

Battle royale is probably the best term for this mode, or gladiator style battles like @Gesterbein said above....

Yup the main problem is the mode itself. With such a large portion of playerbase whom would rather save themselves until the last second, this mode is somewhat worse than the FORT mode.

This one looks like map issue. Statistical backing on starting position and wins?

Thank you for opinions, captains. Some think that the mode itself is more serious problem, and other think that it is just a map issue.

Of course I will report both though 🙂
