Has anyone noticed that the map references of all the islands have changed? Either the world has got smaller, or the map has been made a little bit bigger!
Crescent Isle and Mermaids Hideaway used to be in column B. Now they are in column C. Liars Backbone is in column X rather than Y.
Similarly, Smugglers Bay and Marauders Arch have moved down, from row 2, to row 3. And, Sharkbait Cove, Booty Isle, and Devils Ridge have all moved up a row.
The effect is that no island is less than two grid lines from the Devils Shroud (Red Sea) anymore: None in columns A, B, Y or Z; nor in rows 1, 2, 25 and 26.
When did this happen? More importantly, why was it not mentioned in any Patch Release Notes?
