Map Mondays: Glacier

Block Quote   The North Flank seems like a fool’s push. You’re exposed to a lot of enemy fire from spawn after turning either corner of the Aircraft Carrier. This seems more like a flank that you send tanks to hold, rather than a flank where you should be committing your main push.

You’ll probably almost always want to stay out of the middle. There’s not much you can do from the ice, and you can take fire from so many different locations.
For the most part, the mountain road seems to be the most effective place to bunker down and snipe enemy targets from behind all that foliage. Pushing will likely be along the South Flank in general, but take care when pushing cap as you are exposed to sniper fire when approaching the Cap Circle on either side, from every lane.

DomoSapien:
  So let's talk strategy.

The North

As a general rule of thumb, your close-range brawlers will typically gravitate towards the North, to fight around the carrier and the shipwrecks to the North, which offer plenty of cover and opportunities for sidescraping. Eyes on your minimap! This is a risky flank as each firing lane will leave you exposed to enemy fire from other lanes.

About the Aircraft Carrier: 
  A bold play up the Aircraft Carrier will favor vehicles with better mobility and hull-down characteristics, as the steep incline will leave vehicles with even the strongest Gun Depression struggling to find shots. Driving up the carrier is a high-risk play with a potentially low return, depending on whether you will be able to spot targets once you get there.   North Side Firing Lanes  
The Middle
  Glacier offers a good variety of flex play for Lights and Mediums. Both sides can push the middle and contest the main snowbank, however keep in mind that you do not have the view range to completely spot all the TD’s which may be lurking behind cover near the enemy spawn; unless you have excellent view range and mobility, think twice before pushing up the snowbank!   That said however, the occasional bold play up to the rock on the Southeast side of the snowbank does offer coverage of virtually the entire southeast side   Spotting Opportunities in the Middle  
 
The South
  If you are in a close-range brawler such as a Heavy, Assault TD, or Hulldown Medium, it’s possible to slow push the mountain road in the Southeast, at the risk of exposing your flank to enemy fire from the village and lower defilade on the South side. The mountain road is situationally viable for Stealthy TD’s as well, since it offers quite a few sniping locations with ample hard cover + foliage.   Keep in mind, you are in a corner of the map! The maximum render range will only allow you to see about halfway up the snowbank in the middle of the map!
As you approach the bottom of the road on either side, you have to cross a big open field of doom to reach the enemy cap. One will often see a successful initial push crumble when reaching the last leg of the journey to the cap circle, as the spawn points are littered with bushes and potential sniper’s nests where Snipers (TD’s, Support Heavies) can set up for a surprise attack.
  Southeast Firing Lanes     Defending Base:
  If you’re going to defend base: Keep in mind that not all cover spots in spawn are as useful as they may appear. Several locations will not present you with any opportunities to fire at enemy targets until lategame.
As a rule of thumb, deploying in a way where you will not be able to make a difference until after you lose a flank is planning for failure. Instead of waiting for a flank to crumble, take an aggressive early location but fall back early! That way you can keep firing until they’re pushing your base. The longer you stay alive, the more influence you can have on the course of the game.
  Potential Base-Defense pitfalls:     Finally, some tips from the community:
