Hey guys,

The announcement the WoT portal for the World of Tanks Premium Account notably mentions that those who have Prem Account will be able to blacklist 2 maps​. Considering this and the new MM, how do you think your gameplay experience and enjoyment will change in the days ahead? It was ​a change that many were requesting, so... How do you think the meta will change as well? I mean, if LT players decide to blacklist maps like Paris and Ensk, whilst heavies blacklist Prokh and some other map, what impact will it have on the game, and individual performance? 

P.S. ​I guess we could also discuss the potential "Invisible stats"/XVM ban that may be coming...:)

Well, for one I won't miss watching half my team drive down to the beach on Overlord! :D

 

The MM changes are much bigger than the map blacklist, personally speaking, and so far I've been pleasantly surprised with the new MM.

Only for prem accounts!? That’s a bit ... bollox.

Tbh there are too many maps I’d not want to play - don’t see it making a mass game changing experience. In game I don’t see it being noticeable at all. Personally stats might improve a little bit but how many times have you got ensk in a LT for example, thought “oh great ... another pointless battle” and then come away with a blinding performance? Happens to me a fair bit anyway.

I find it gimmicky. And blatantly money grabbing.

The MM however is much improved recently imo.

Depends on if it will be locked or not. As I suspect it will make little difference either way. As there are more then 2 urban or open maps. And not all hate the same one, or even two. 

 

Even now we have 6 vs 6 light games on open maps with almost no HT's, and 8 vs 8 HT game with no lights on Urban maps, with meds and TD's to fill the gap. Rare, but it still occurs.

The only difference I can foresee is that the match maker might take a little longer to create teams which should not be an issue if you play mostly peak hours.

 

I do not intend to block any map.

It is not money grabbing at all. How are you forced to spend money ?

 

If you do support the game financially it just gives you more options; what is wrong with that ?

2 out of dozen sniper maps is good, but could be better. Wish it were 3 maps on premium

I wish I could blacklist at least 3 maps on standard account. The one I find the most worthless for any class would end up in my blacklist, which is Minsk.

I think minsk would be about number 6 for me after paris, cliff, ensk, fjords and probably abbey.

I'm sure some people will be really happy, and that Wargaming has figured out that it won't reduce gameplay quality (noticeably), or something like that. Cough.

 

Doubt it'll change much. I dislike the 'design trend' of maps more than two maps in particular. Removing two out of the mix won't really matter. To me, that is. Someone that loves playing certain classes might love being able to remove maps where their class is particularly useless. Prokhorovka and Malinovka for heavies, for instance.

 

As for which ones I want gone, I have to wait and see. I bet the most unpopular maps will simply get less rotation just from being a less likely fit for a team. Ideally, someone would get a large-ish sample from non-blacklisters and figure out which maps are very unpopular - then figure out what maps other than those they'd want removed.

(My bet is on Mountain Pass and Pilsen. I think, anyway.)

How do you blacklist a map, and what happens if you are in a platoon, does the map blacklist thing work then?
