There is no map rotation it's Random.

No actually it's not supposed to be completely random - since 9.18 at least:

 

  • "Improvements to the map selection mechanics that decreases the chance of playing on the same maps within a game session."

For me it doesn't seem very random - in some sessions I often get stuck in 2-3 maps on the same session. 

Ensk Ensk Mines Winterberg Himmelsdorf Ensk -> that's pretty common for me on LTs.

I always thought this was for balancing purposes...

Change server then you have another map rotation.

Maybe WG has disabled this feature in some of the previous (micro)patches, under the premise of: fixed several server issues?

God knows how many times I read that printed line in all the of the latest patchnotes, without them actually listing what actual server issue was fixed.

 

The increase in topics about this the last few months, it makes one wonder what these fixes actually "fixed"...damn where is my roll of alu foil?!

It would make sense for that rule to be one of the first things to go if the matchmaker has problems creating a match within the set parameters. That's not a new thing, but I assume that the MM is way more rule-based than before.

 

(A few years ago you could get some really funky setups; like a single T7 LT on top of each team with fourteen T6s. Technically LTs back then weren't supposed to be top-tier, specified to only enter T8-10 level matches - but if forced to, the matchmaker just created a T8 match without any T8s.)

I don't think it's random at all, it's fixed depending on what tank you're playing. Play lights, get tiny city maps. Play heavies, get big open maps. Tinfoil hat activated.

Best way to avoid bad map rotation  in to not play random battles at all! You will get maps like Kharkow, Pilsen, Paris, Stalingrad... This game has become world of corridors. So I see no point to buy any new premium tanks, because you will get that corridor maps, where the view range, and concealment has nothing to do at all. Everything what counts in corridor maps is derp surprise by the O-I family.

"Decreases the chance" Since you don't know what the initial chance is that's not much information to go on.

I see no point in the map rotation whatsoever. They give us missions, I have to spot 4k damage and there are maybe 2 good maps for spotting. I get a good map 1 out of 10 and that one time I get a good map the team either doesnt care for my spotting or there is some samurai that runs straight away to the enemy. That basically means I get to enjoy the game some 1 game out of 50. Is this the way it should work? Needless to say my game win ratio goes rapidely down since I want to somplete a mission.
