Nice!

 

 

Btw: Can we know the actual map rotation? (So we will not exclude a map, which is not in the rotation.)

Only 1 map? Previous information was that u could block 3 maps. 1 map blocking doesnt help anything. For example u want to play super heavys, and block open map. There is still 10 more open maps which u can have. 3 maps blocked would do much bigger difference. All arty players will block ensk/himmelsdorf.. with 3 maps blocked they can block many bad arty maps.

In the meeting in Minsk on March 29th it was said that there will be possibility to exclude one map in the beginning, then there will be gathered information for some time, then maybe there will be added possibility to exclude two or even three maps.

The possibility to exclude Assault and Encounter modes already is in the game, that's why this ban of map is only for Standard mode.

Developers are not sure how it will affect the work of MM, that's why they are adding possibility to ban only one map in the beginning.

 

The whole video of the meeting is here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Vh9YRqi_-3E&list=LLMHZXRvy8t95eOoh9DtxbRw

It would be nice if there would be posted some summary of this meeting on the WoT EU main page.

Or, at least, a post on the main page with redirection to this information (thanks to Miepie): http://forum.worldoftanks.eu/index.php?/topic/704476-developer-and-blogger-stream-qa-english-transcript/

 ::)) well,whend play superheavy,in general i am only realy  bothered by 2 maps,and only if there is arty : murovanka and westfield...so,beeng able to remove one of them is nice...::)) if play meds ,i would remove ensk or fisherman bay...and scouts and artyes,himelsdorf,of course..::))

      problem for me is,i like to alternate vehicols and clases whend play...but this would kind of 'convince " me to play a single class for  a sesion of gaming (4 hours interval between change blocked map)

     point is, for me there is not a certain map that is universaly bad...it all depend of what vehicol i  drive

This is not a bad feature, don't like that it is only 1 map, and don't like that it is only for 1 battle type. I hate Prokhorovka as much as Mines. Please add a further feature where we can vote for maps, maybe 1 to 5 stars (and maybe with a comment). This will tell you which maps most people hate, then you can rework them, and we will not have to block any maps, instead we can enjoy them

Which is exactly the point. Allowing players that option would ruin all variation completely. It would result in 15 vs 15 light tanks on Malinovka or a Full Jagdpanzer E100 match on Himmeldorf. 

I'm glad that Wargaming added this however, this means I never ever have to see Paris again.

 

Dramatic, actually. Wargaming managed to make such a mess that people are begging to not have to play the content they created.

If this is to be the case, could we please get back some of the older maps that were removed? I personally won't use this feature as I like all the maps in rotation (although some can be frustrating at the higher tiers e.g. Mines or Himmelsdorf) but would love to have even more of a variety in the MM

Oh yeah! I would love to see Port and Pearl River around again.

I agree, maybe not 4 but without this being possible per tank type, i think it's completely useless. Especially when you need to wait 4 hours and enjoy switching between tank types.
I enjoy Himmelsdorf and Paris in heavies for example, i just simply don't want them when playing arties.
