Morning Tankers!

 

This is a feature that I'm sure a lot of you have been wanting for a while now.  Do you hate playing arty on Himmelsdorf?  Wheeled vehicles/Lights on Paris?  Well then, this is for you!

 

Okay, so how is this going to work?

 

With the release of this feature, we will have to make some additional tweaks to the matchmaker. This will ensure you won’t get matchmade on your "blocked" map under any circumstances.

 

The Excluded Maps feature:

  • Will only be available for Standard Battles, and not for Assault or Encounter Battles.
  • Will only work when playing Tier IV vehicles or higher and will be disabled for all three Grand Battles maps (Klondike, Nebelburg, and Hinterland).
  • If you wish to block a different map, you must wait at least four (4) hours to pass since you banned the previous one.

 

 

Black listing in Platoons?

  • The feature will be available only to Platoon creators. The other Platoon members' Excluded Maps will be overridden by the Platoon creator's map list as long as they are part of that Platoon.
  • We are still working on the concept, so this feature may change significantly in the future. We want to hear your suggestions, so feel free to ask your questions and share your feedback!

 

We are planning to get this feature out by update 1.5!


 

So, what do you think your first black list map will be?

I suspect Empire's Border will be high on most people's lists

Ensk would be fine ... as a  1/9th grid on a Russia Frontline map.

Good Bye Mines - now only to have the option to have 2 more maps also with the choices -- to make it 3 - then i next option would be Paris and last would be Empire's Border

This is a very dumb concept and idea.   Please never let it see the light of day.   

 

Instead try balancing maps and limiting garbage like Ensk to tiers 6 and lower.

this is awesome!  One thing my squad mates and I were talking about the other night is in matchmaking.  I do understand that this is what you are trying to accomplish somewhat by this feature, but maybe go a little farther.  Just for example, any small map, no arty and very limited lights?  Have the small city maps only for, say, heavies, mediiums and TD's.  and with only 10 per side or something along those lines.  I may be asking for a lot and i appologize if so, but it seems more realistic.  Arty on the small maps is really too much.  I can spot one at the very beginning of the game looking down a strett before anyone gets moving.  

 

Hope I am making some sense as this is obviously only a thought but maybe something to work on with your team.  Thank you for your time

I won't block any because map variety is already sorely lacking in this game for long time players, but if I did, it would probably be Erlenberg.  They ruined it, making the East and West flanks pure camp fests ruled by spotting mechanics, where any push is suicide..... so it's just a standstill.

Ensk can go into the Dustbin where it belongs when I'm playing higher then Tier 6.

I really cannot think of a single map to ban, as I have things I can do on all of the on all of them regardless of what tank I'm in.

Made me look at the date. Thought this might be from April 1st. Personally I will give this one a pass. 

 

My mantra was "everyone is in the same boat". Not anymore for obvious reasons.

Take Ensk and drop the whole thing into the center trench of Provence- then you'd have :

 

Provensk !
