It’s free and it’s what some of us have wanted for a long time, ie a big space to naval operations.

The argument about bug fixes is an interesting one.
If you were to take it to the extreme, ED would still be only selling the KA50 and would have spent the last 10 years just honing that, as anything else would have introduced bugs. It’s just a ridiculous train of thought once you really analyse it.
So please, less of the negativity for something that will cost us nothing.

If you really can’t be at least a little constructive, just go play the game.

I say this - Guam/Marianas is a stop for any carrier strike group on a WESTPAC deployment. When I was there, I saw USS Carl Vinson stop in Guam and one of its escorting Ticonderoga-class cruisers stop in Saipan.


Use it as a training ground.

Its just that its "Far-fetched" Fictional Scenarios isn't it? USN/USMC vs a Marianas occupied by the Chinese? How did that happen? A Chinese task force attacking US bases in the Marianas? Where are the Naval/Amphibious assets available to make that work...ignoring the fact that there's no "Redfor" plane to fly and the idea that a Chinese Task Force could even get to the Marianas without being destroyed...
Yes, a predominantly Ocean map can be used for Carrier Ops and for Single Player there are enough Assets to support a Russia vs US scenario...but you'd essentially be ignoring the Islands in that Scenario...so why not make an all-water map in 5 minutes and release it free with the F/A18 months ago?
Re-skinned its usable for WW2 Scenarios - but there isn't a single plane or asset available to fit that scenario yet...(I know F4U is under development) but you're essentially talking about starting from scratch - currently there is no opposition, no ground assets and no playable planes to support that.


Far more realistic Conflict Scenarios with mainly water maps could have included (as mentioned above) Kurils, Sakhalin/Kamchatka (A Great choice...1980's Lehman doctrine USN & USMC vs Full strength Russian land-based Aviation), Indian Ocean Fifth Fleet US vs Russia or US vs India Scenarios (perhaps based around the Chagos Islands) Iceland & North Cape as outside choices (maybe more relevent for paid DLC because of Terrain complexity)

I totally get what you're saying.


That said, use Guam/Marianas as a map for a war game, perhaps between two U.S. carrier strike groups. Similar to a RIMPAC. Not everything has to be Blue-on-Red.
