Why can't we choose to block certain maps, from rotation, like in most other pvp type of games? 

Would make more problems in already dodgy matchmaker.

Would be a nice option but then most maps would be mostly empty :Smile_veryhappy:

Ocean would become the most played map tho :Smile_trollface:

From what i can remember (correct me if im wrong) wg dosent do it because "splitting" the player base would increase que times, or something along that anyway.

Edit: And what ninja @nambr9 sayd.

Why can't we chose to block CVs?

Why can't we block certain players to play in the same match?

Why can't we always be top tier in our battles?

Can we please exclude certain premium ships from our battles?

 

The list of requests like this goes on and on. Each one of them causes issues. Some more some less. They all have one thing in common: They cause longer waiting times for matches to be created or make it utterly impossible.

 

Make a suggestion of how it is supposed to work, think about the potential issues it might cause (and if your answer is "none", think again and this time be serious about it, or ask someone who might know) and post solutions to those.

There are some maps that are actually very very good (Estuary).

But most of them suck (not gfx design, but game-play design).

I'd love to play more on ocean. It is so rare that I celebrate each occurence, even if my team gets roflstomped due to their lack of knowledge of how to play on a map without cover.

Some may find it funny but, that map requires skill to play well on it, it really dose, but yeah it's too rare in the rotation.

No doubt they cannot because of the match maker but how I wish I could block off North, not only do I hate that map but it is one of my most frequently re occurring maps. 

 

So if we cannot block off certain maps could we have at least better randomisation rather than always damn North

IMO by now there should be at least 50 maps or so, but there are not.

Shame!!

Ocean Best map.

 

A check box with preferred map would be good.

Map for any given battle would be the map the majority of players selected.

We should be given full choice; Map, cvs?, and being able to turn off stats. But we won’t.

You don’t ever have to look at stats. You CHOSE to look at them. That’s your issue, nobody else’s.

I agree.

 

Wargaming has the resources to introduce 40 new ships to the game each year.

 

Whilst they only introduce 1 or 2 new maps per year.

 

I know which I'd rather have more of, to keep the game fresh.

 

But - maybe Wargaming think that they make more money from introducing new ships than they do new maps?

Which is a somewhat short sighted view, as you don't want players leaving the game because they're bored of playing the same maps over and over and over again.

there isn't enough maps to do that like in WoT. This side of WG seems to be underdeveloped in a lot of ways.  After all, it is the less popular game.

That's actually a great idea. I like it.

I have not had an Ocean map once since 8.0...

 

As a DD main it is my favourite map of all..

 

Some of my biggest scores have come from it and if I could guarantee that I would play that map frequently my Shimakaze would be so armed with 6.4km torpedoes at 86 knots forever..

 

I would also like to see more maps that have only the two cap zones, yours and theirs..

Just because WoT has things, WoWs doesn't have to get it.

The maps themselves are fine, the "standart battle" has to go.

No greece is god awful and okinawa can get binned, hate both maps with a passion.

 

and frankly banning maps is a good suggestion. It gives peeps a choice playing on something majorly awkward.

 

just like the questionable replay system, at least wot’s got that right first time.

 

yeah it wouldnt work due to the limited player pop (maybe). I would rather play on ocean than those two (at least ocean requires far more skill to play on and teaches you more about positioning although make american cruisers questionable on said map).

 

mechwarrior allows you to vote maps and ironically enough works despite the lower pop.

 

but my post is meaningless anyways since wargaming won’t implement it (and for good reason even if i dont agree with it).

It's not possible to opt out certain maps option.

People will constantly change it depending on their current ship to play.

It will put a lot more pressure on the already drooling windowlicking MM..

 

But I guess WG can do something like that..

Make an ingame survey.. give 2 options.. 2 maps.. which you'll prefer..
do that constantly for every map combination for 2 months.. after every battle..

 

Then push most preferred maps into rotation more.. and drop the chances of the least preferred ones..

It may help
