 I would love to have input into the maps that we get. Throw away the ability to blacklist one or two maps and instead let us vote on what map we want next. It could work one of two ways. Either we vote for what map we want, lets say I want Malinovka, I then get put on Malinovka with 29 other players who also chose it. Malinovka would then be locked out for 10 battles, or an hour or whatever and another map would have to be picked. Or... the MM could offer us a choice of three maps, let's say Ensk, Erlenberg and Airfield. The ballot is blind and it happens after the 30 players are picked, whichever gets the most votes is played and then gets locked out for 10 battles, or an hour or whatever.

Mechwarrior Online has the best system I think, it randomly selects 3 maps and 3 game modes which all players in the match then choose from.

 

The winning map and mode is used and if you didn't get the one you wanted, you get a multiplier on to your next games choice so that everyone eventually gets to play the map/mode they want.

we need to be able to block more than two maps at a time...as there are more than two horrible maps in game.

They should just copy MechWarrior's system outright. It's a really smooth system that keeps people playing because sooner or later you will get what you want, and you know you'll get it.

i thought that Sheriffs version was inadvertent? and will not happen again? when i did my stint ,it was the first time such an option was available.so of course i played my LTs and ONLY picked Prohk.

 

i seem to recall that it was later stated to be disabled in future Sheriffs acct? can anyone chime in who has first-hand knowledge of recent Sheriff/map-picking option?

I think it's fine the way it is, the unpredictability is part of the appeal even if there are maps I really don't like playing on. I'd rather they just put ALL the maps into a daily rotation with equal chances for them to be chosen. Maps with more than one battle type should be treated as one. Gets real annoying when you play ten games a day and get 3 Ensk, 2 Himmels, 3 Airfields etc. Never seems to be the good maps you get a lot.

That's the point though. It would also help them get data on maps players hate. Granted, there are some maps which I think get more hate than they should, such as Mines and Ensk. However, I am always concerned when WG tries to fix something, because they usually make it worse.

The accounts they give away it was a accident CCs get to pick maps to assist them in making content

Maybe if WG fixed actual maps instead of ruining old ones and turning them into corridors of death. 

 

Malinovka needs a whole bunch of houses added on the hill so that Heavies dont fear artillery like the plague. 

 

Look at Lakeville, the city seems safe but arty can still hit you between the buildings, and those are tall solid buildings. Hill on Mali is basically a death zone, are you really going to blame Type 5 not wanting to climb the hill with 3 arties?

 

Prokh also needs a path with some cover where heavies can push. Make it similar to steppes, not that steppes is anything great but at least I dont see heavy tanks hugging the red line on steppes in fear of getting clubbered by tds and arties.
