So...here's an idea...you might like it or not. What if wg would let us choose in the settings menu 1 map, or 2 or 3 or how many they want that we can check to eliminate from our own map rotation. Like how they do on WGL games before the start when they eliminate some maps...I guess most of us would like the idea...since i think almost everyone has at least 1 map that he/she dislikes or even hates playing on.

This has been proposed in just this way many times over the years.  It'll not happen because it will add stress to the MM.

Yes we all dislike one map or another, but it's not a big deal.

​I think the Hedgehog mean stress on MM is for MM to have enough tanks to make team. If you let players lose maps they not like then players who do like those maps wait long time for maps as less players to make team with. It was not stress on WG servers or poor hamster having heart attack.

on the other hand.. td's want open maps, so I can punish them with my arties for the battles I got 'owned' while playing active :D

It everyone starts turning off maps you will start having situations of sitting in a queue longer than you’re actually in a match

I'm getting close to that already, because of the steamrolls and waiting in the que for almost every single tank I pick with 40k+ people online. Guess what.. waiting in the que would give you a better chance for fair mm, right? not really, as mostly waiting in the que is for me instant bottom tier.

Personally I don't see this as an issue, some people have issues with some maps and that's fine. It's only natural that you get better at playing some maps than others. I personally hate Abbey but whenever I watch streams of the top players they seem to have a lot less trouble with the map than I do. Then again I really like Paris and nobody else seems to. 

 

If this would ever be a thing though I'd put Kharkov just because of how poorly designed it is...

Don't believe evrything you're told.

Adding opt-outs would have consequences for the MM, some bad, some good.

Don't ditch the baby with the bath water :)

People shouldn't mistake me for someone who wouldn't like this to happen. I loathe mountain Pass.

I would rather see them just putting them all in the rotation and not only a few of them like it is now.

Well he is not wrong as such. Considering that everyone would pick a map based on class etc. It would mess up the MM in a way if you 100% could avoid it.

 

But... having one map selected from a list you would like to avoid, if MM allows it would not be a bad idea. As in you still have a chance to see it. But way less. I would definitely pick Highway.

Ensk - would be instantly banned. Would love it if that PoS was removed completely from the rotation.

Ensk may be small, but it's a good map. The only reason it's bad is because of how smol it is.

Paris on the other hand... yeah

 

Each month or two, there should be a poll on the worst map and that map should be changed/removed from the game and replaced by something new. Making a good map is not difficult.

Or just release the map creator and make a map contest for the community. Community maps would be great if they got approved.

I try to see an unfavourable map as a challenge, like when I get Abbey and the challenge is not to ALT-F4 and play something else.
