Default Will it even be fun?

I have a hard time PR is going to be much fun on this massive 16x16 barren map, its going to be boring and people will avoid it like they do with some of the larger 4x4 maps already in PR.. and those are actually moderately detailed. How are they gonna keep it fun..?

I think it is a great concept. Considering that we can now have 200+ players in a server, a large scale naval invasion will be awesome!

It isn't always about the landscape. Often a mountain or a hill can be just as effective in creating dynamic firefights as a city.

I'm going to be doing everything I can to make sure it will be

It will certainly be very different from most other maps ingame but at the end of the day, even thou this is a 16km map, the ground combat is focused around a 3km by 2km area:

And yes, while there will be much more running around than a normal map, the long view distance (VD) enables combat at much longer ranges, although the lack of scopes will also be an interesting mix into that. Lack of vehicles also means this is very much a infantry and air combat map which we don't really have that mix currently in PR so in a lot of ways, this map is something that hasn't been seen before in PR.

But at the end of the day, how fun it will be very much comes down to your own interpretation of the map.

I think it'll be awesome. Will there be any mapping of South Georgia? Maybe recreate the Invasion of South Georgia where the Lt Keith Mills and his 21 British Royal Marines defended against the Argentinians.

Source of knowledge: this awesome book I read about the battle.

Is the Cope Patholic? You get to stick it to the bloody Argies! What's not going to be fun?! Looks like a good concept, although I dread to think how long a round will last...

Cool beans. Although I do agree with what you said. There wasn't much of a battle other than when the Argentinians invaded the island (with like some 60 marines against the British 22) and when the SAS/SBS (can't remember which one, although I think it was the SBS) went there and a Sea King crashed in the weather. I know the Argentinian detachment there surrendered to the British commandos.

SAS mainly but might have been some SBS too and it was two out of the 3 Westland Wessex that crashed due to white-out conditions

That's right. And the 3rd lifted all of them back to the ship they set off from. Pretty impressive for that aircraft. I'm going to re-read my book so I can have a little better insight to the conflict.
