Those Public Linebattles you organize are great fun, really good idea!

PS: Can't wait to see those units! Loud and glorious... artillery uniforms or cavalry?  ;D

Line battle maps are pretty boring and pointless on public servers. Leave them for events. We need more maps like Sharpton.

Big open maps with no other features to them are the worst imo. The desert one we have right now isn't too bad because you have the ruins on either side which offer some closer combat, but the open grass and snow plain map last too long and don't offer much incentive to do anything other than just snipe the enemy as far away as possible.

got a question, by more frequently you mean we spend less rounds on each map
but how many rounds do we spend now?
and how many will we spend if the vote passes?

Neither dragoons nor grenadiers use grenades.

Hey,

Each map has a set timer of 25 minutes after which it then switches to the next map in the rotation.

Another set of line battle maps will be included in the rotation if we receive the go-ahead from the community. There needs to be 70% more ‘Yes’ than ‘No’ votes for this to pass.

Have a look at the following to compare differences between map rotations if it passes a poll.


The current map rotation:
1. Sharpton (New Map Present In The Next Patch)
2. Canyon
3. Arendan River
4. Highlands
5. Tahir Desert (Linebattle Map)
6. Fort Christina
7. Crosshills
8. Desert Ruins
9. Spanish Farm
10. Grassy Plains or Snowy Plains (Linebattle Maps)
- Repeat rotation.


New map rotation - If it passes the poll:
1. Sharpton (New Map Present In The Next Patch)
2. Canyon
3. Grassy Plains or Snowy Plains (Linebattle Maps)
4. Arendan River
5. Highlands
6. Fort Christina
7. Tahir Desert (Linebattle Map)
8. Crosshills
9. Desert Ruins
10. Spanish Farm
11. Grassy Plains or Snowy Plains (Linebattle Maps)
- Repeat rotation.

Whilst we're talking about the official map rotation, could the reinforcement count be increased on Canyon? It seems way lower in comparison to other maps. Sometimes the match finishes in just 7 or 8 minutes which is a shame because it's quite a nice map.

Line battle maps and Line battle role play is the best part of this game so yes add more to the rotation!!!

Agreed, It's much more fun to see lines forming up against each other on public servers, although it doesn't happen as much as I'd like but when you have officers on that want to form people into lines (Mainly UK) then its interesting to be apart of. With the use of VOIP it adds a whole different experience to the game.

Lines are formed irregardless of the map. Line battle maps just resut in the majority of players running around in open terrain.

Lines end up trying to shoot eachother at 100 metres on these maps, completely disregarding flanks or anything that is not part of their line.
The forming of lines by commanders wastes a lot of time at spawn, and if there is an enemy behind spawn they don't even notice it because, well, form up and get in line (this happens on all maps)! Enforce it on dedicated public line battle servers, and on private servers where the owner demands a certain role play. On that note, I have seen commanders forming lines against the fort .... clueless.

I am already at the stage that once Tahir desert starts I disconnect from the server. I'd rather see a focus on the defensive and attacking/besieging roles switching regularly on (siege) servers than anything else at the moment.

to be honest, no, the linebattle maps offer 0 fun for anyone on the public unmodded servers

Grassy plains is in my opinion one of the Best maps if not the best map in the game its really the only one that doesn't have much cover except for the small sections of rocks at each side which is epic. Players and officers have a chance to form 30-50 man lines and exchange volleys which is not only awesome as hell and provides kick ass role play its literally how soldiers fought in the Era. in strait lines and usually in quite open fields. Grassy plains will remain one of the best maps in the game at least if you like to form 50 man lines and do massive volleys :)

Yeah I get why people like it. People prefer different experiences on public I guess, personally I never form or join lines on public unless I'm with my reg.

May I assume that your kick ass role play and 50 man line was not on a public server?

There's also the fact that people tend to form up in lines and fire volleys at each other similar to a linebattle. However, this tends to be little more than rabble.

I have to wonder if this poll would receive the same votes now. Seems to me people now prefer smaller or at least less open maps like Spanish Farm.
