    I just had the weirdest Red Tide match ever, as a Red Army soldier.

    We won without losing a single battalion.

    A
    SINGLE
    BATTALION


    We even managed to get through Tsaritsyn in less than five minutes. I barely got any time to get XP, so I mostly watched this team blaze through this map as if it was the easiest thing in the world...

    On a more serious but still positive note, I did manage to get another piece for the Russian Award Knife today. At this rate, I'll have it in a few more days.

    Do you play on PlayStation? If so, I could’ve been on the losing side, on that round. The first sector of Tsaritsyn, which can be an absolute nightmare to take, the attackers lost 1 ticket! No, I’m not talking about how you get tickets back, when you kill enemies that are retreating, I mean they had 1 death. Yes, the defenders had a full team.

    I got like 800 points that round, or something. Nice team balance. :)

    One thing is for sure. When I'm done with this I'll never ever play operations on these maps again. I played for roughly 4 hours tonight, on the attacking team in every game (don't know if this is due to me exiting to the main meny after each game), loosing EVERY round. Is this just bad luck or is anyone actually winning any game on the russian maps when on the attacking team?

    Brusilov offensive is possible to win as attack. I feel this operation is pretty balanced now.

    Red tide however is a complete different story. Winning as an attacker is almost to impossible!? But then again, Tsaritsyn (by far the worst map ever) is designed in such a stupid way that when you get the first 2 sectors, you pretty much one the game. The last 2 sectors are just impossible to defend.
    But yeah getting through the first map on this operation is difficult enough I guess.
    I’ve only once seen attackers win.
    No matter what team you are on, the whole operation is not enjoyable and every situation is just a complete chaos.

    Horrifyingly bad maps!

    I used to play games on the PS3/PS4, but I just stick to PC gaming nowadays, though I do wish I had a better PC... maybe later.

    Another strange game on Red Tide happened, but in a not-so-good way this time. I joined a game on Tsaritsyn as a White Army soldier, and noticed that the enemy team had three battalions - they managed to win in about 5 minutes. I was pretty much the only one on the flags, and the enemy team was absolutely determined to get those flags. I'd be on an objective, and in a matter of seconds, a massive horde of enemies would storm my position - I stood no chance, not on my own. I kind of thought about how German soldiers felt decades after this battle in the same city, now called Stalingrad, fighting the Zhukov's pincer movement, slowly crushing us to death. It didn't matter if you killed dozens of them. It didn't matter that you had superior equipment. There were so many soldiers coming towards you that you were bound to get overwhelmed.

    Brusilow Offensive is still way to hard for attackers. And Red Tide? Don't get me started on that. This is so so so so bloody boring for defenders and so so so so so so so so so frustratingly painful for attackers.

    Is it just bad memory since I don't play these Ops (or really any Ops) except once in a while for the campaigns, but did they reduce the cap radius on a bunch of objectives too? I felt the church on Brusilov as well as "A" on the final sector were smaller than before, and the huge palace/whatever on Tsaritsyn felt similar (wasn't the outside walls right outside the doors previously part of the capture zone?).

    Is there a way to find the win percentages for attackers/defenders? I'd like to know how often attackers win on Galicia; has to be crazy low. Although I won it, but the team strengths were just super unbalanced.

    Sorry if I'm bumping an old thread, but hey I wasnt the first one to do so ;) .

    I totally get how you mightve felt back then, cuz there was a match like this yesterday where we as commies steamrolled both maps in under 8 mins in total, 21/21 major vic.

    What was different was that both teams had like an equal number of 130+s, so it was quite surprising...

    Yes they did.

    Attackers get one armor spawn on Brusilov Keep 3rd sector now, they didn't before this update, so I guess that's why, a trade-off.

    The Tsaritsyn change made it somewhat harder for attackers, but they also adjusted flags A and B in first sector, it's now ezpz compared with before (hell on earth).

    Never attack, always defend. Switch teams of you need to, defenders will always win unless they're completely useless.

    And this is why these maps are really not suited at all for operation, for a good operation map both sides should have equal chance of winning.
