Maybe not intended, but the idea of having extremely risky places is not that bad. Might need some polishing though.
IRL risk of dying because ice broke under someone is quite real and it happens here once per a couple years. The expression "walking on thin ice" exists for a reason.

This just happened to me, although thankfully it lead me to another iced off location.

I do want to point out however that the vortex is NOT visible on the minimap or map at all; the only way to know the vortex is there is if you already knew it was there (or have a custom client that reveals the location on a larger map)
Highly opinionated, yet highly annoying. I have returned; and it is good to be back.

Going through iced over vortexes is how I crashed the server on monday, sometimes they won't appear at all on minimap or on the ground but they're still there, and you can accidentally run through them like stated and end up either getting stuck, drowning like borka did, or just upside down if you're in a boat.

Moving into an icy vortex is dangerous. Players are surprised.

Kidding.
