I wish I could just block 1 more map on this game. Although there is more then 3 maps I hate just getting rid of 1 more would be so amazing... I like both the recent map additions in the game although I have only seen Pearl River maybe 3 times since it's been in the game which ridiculous. Right now I have blocked;

 

Cliff: This map is just completely unbalanced the North almost never wins for some reason. I don't even know why because at a glance this map looks pretty symmetrical but for whatever reason North just eats it every game and I hate having my games decided by which side of the map I spawn in at.

 

Prokhorovka: Just way to campy no matter what you do it's always a camp-fest and always just comes down to whoever has the better LT.

 

I usually swap out Cliff with other maps like Fisherman's Bay or Siegfried Line, I usually never change out Prokhorovka unless I actually am going to play an LT. If I did just had just one more slot I would also permanently ban Fisherman's Bay because it's just another Prokhorovka, just another map where everyone camps, if I get this map I just yolo down the 1 line. Either works or it doesn't but either way I'm not trying to draw out a game into the whole 15 freaking minutes. I'd just continue to swap Cliff and Siegfried Line because in my own opinion these maps have the exact same problem just reversed, North wins on Siegfried Line and South wins on Cliff.

 

I hope WG released the statistics for blocked maps again I thought it was interesting to see what maps the community mostly hated and blocked.

My 2 cents: i've banned Glacier (can never get it right) and MOUNTAIN PASS (hate it)

 

It would be delightful it we could ban 3 maps, even tho'most people would probably like about 5.

 

my 3rd? probably El Haddenuf, you either camp or go to HT corner...

 

I mostly play TDs and that has a lot to do with it.  Most other maps I have a few scripts for, but those 2 give me the most heartache

I banned:

 

Paris - don't like the way the map plays. Heavys are typically battling it out at the bridge. Lights trying to spot the field from only a few, predictable, locations. And, the "spokes" are so narrowly focused with little to no cover (for spotting and for protection).

 

Ensk - great map for Tiers 5 and below, but once you start moving up, it's just way too small.

I banned Paris and Minsk, I will try Minsk again after the rework but until then those are my most disliked.

Once you learn where to go on the maps to get good positioning and have good games, they’re all fun. The only one I can’t get is Kharkov and it’s the only one I have blocked

This is why I did not feel it was a good idea to allow any map banning. No matter what the number, there will always be the call for "just one more".

If I could I'd block Prokhorovka, Ensk, and Airfield.

Maybe the solution is to fix the maps instead.

After a few terrible losses on the New Pearl River, I had decided that I would ban it, today I got Pear River and we lost 15-1. The map is too open, enemy can flank you from 3 or 4 directions, and impossible to defend. When you get a lot of bad or average players, they have no clue what to do... tier 9 game today, and 2 tier 9s penned 1 shot and the t30 just did over 1k damage....... I wonder how wargaming designs their maps, because so far I have banned Pear River and Empire Border, most recent new maps........  Total garbage

Out of dozens of battles, I can count on 1 hand the number of times I've gotten Pearl River. I have no idea where to go on the sorry map, especially as a TD. I always end up blundering into a HT or 2 and that's that. I've decided to ban it from now on.

I prefer the previous Karkhov with the flanking routes in urban area and the field wasn't bad.  The new Karkhov field is a copy of Studzianki  and the urban area lost most of the fun flanking opportunities.
