I have two questions:

 

1) Why on earth we can't choose which map we want to play? Why do I have to play your shitty open sand maps ??? Are you worried that the same maps are gonna be played over and over again? SO WHAT? If we want to play the same maps, we will play the same maps. What's the deal ?

2) Why don't you balance the teams based on player ratings ? Why do we have to play against a team with average 6000 rating vs 3000 rating ?

1 - They say variety is the spice of life. It's one thing to play the same maps over and over. It's another one to take the initiative in doing so. That will make Heavies in corridor maps and everyone else in open maps.

 

2 - We already have those. It's called Strongholds. But for some reason some people dislike it because "it gives them no incentive in getting better". I know. They don't git gud in Random Battles and they're supposed to do it in another game mode.

So nothing but arty and TD's on open maps and nothing but heavies in cities.  The  only maps that would see a mix would be maps with both types.  

 

As to balanced MM I believe this is question 659,774 regarding the topic (today).  I personally believe that balance stems from play.  The mix of "good" and "bad" players is sufficiently random that it balances out over number of games.  Observational bias makes you see more "good" teams than "bad" or your own ability or equipment is adversely affecting your games.

What about you think about those questions yourself for... let's say... ten seconds?

What happens if everyone was able to choose the map he wants to play on?
And how do you want to balance the teams, how would it work?

Simple reason and logic seems to be too difficult for people these days...

Let's see..

 

Most played tank: T33, followed by Churchill III. (50 % of all battles).

Total amount of battles: 1419

 

So you just want to play Himmelsdorf while being carried by better players?

why do you care which tank I play? I can't state an opinion because I'm new and I play premium tanks?

You didn't state an opinion, you just whined around about things you didn't bother thinking about.

And you obviously didn't understand what the guy you quoted tried to explain...

 

But at least you managed to come back to your thread over a week later. That's a good start.

If you could choose which map to play there would be a percentage of scumbag players who would simply become specialists in certain maps, thus making the game unplayable for the majority of new players, such as yourself. So be careful what you wish for, because linking this to balancing teams on player ratings means it would be harder to progress in the game.

the sand maps are actually some of the better ones...

 

but your point about map voting is interesting.

 

I can only suppose that voting isn't introduced since it would hurt the ego of the map designers, for example those who designed the great tier 11 map "mines" or "ensk"...

I would be already happy if you could downvote or disable 3 or 5 maps you never want to see in your life again.

 

 

WG could even go further than that and allow us to upvote 3 till 5 maps which then would be more likely to be played by the player. But that might already be to much.

 

What a joy it would be never to see some of the worst offerenders this game has to offer again.

Perhaps because your opinion is based on selfish ignorance?

It could work.

The total maps in the game are 40 (example), we are obliged to select a minimum of 37.

The selection could be changed only after a major patch.

We could gently whisper at the wg what maps are crap. And they could work consequently.

 

My "not-selection"? Karkrap, Stalinturd and Tundr@ss.
