That is because servers have a fixed set of maps that rotates every day. You get the same map several times in a day and then it can happen that you don't see some of the maps for days.

If I role a normal, six-sided die 10 times and get only 6's.  Is that proof that the numbers 1-5 are not able to be rolled?

No, that's a sign that you should take a trip to Las Vegas and play Craps (https://www.vegas.co...ing-tips/craps/). :medal:

Well the map rotation sets might be random and map you get from them too, but its not random in a way you could get any random map on any battle.

I noticed long before, that the chances of getting matched on a map change on a daily basis. F.e.: one day you will get 10 ghost towns, and after that you won't see that for a week.

It would be fun to see a log. Screenshot of the replay list with timestamps would suffice.

 

Fair chance it's down to chance - 'forcing' map rotation is such a simple thing to do, and recycling the same maps for several hours would ruin a lot of variety - for what reason?

The amount of times I have had mines lately, I would be very glad if that stupid map was removed from rotation completely.

 

not enough ban slots for maps.

Humans are conditioned to see false positives; it's a valuable survival skill.  Unfortunately, it does not really apply to many things in modern life and is now more of a liability.

To save on server load.

 

You can load one map into memory and use it for several thousands of battles simultaneously.

A selection of maps are loaded on the server and cycled thru so if you're not happy with the map selection you are getting try switching servers.

Has anyone else noticed that certain tanks seem more inclined to get certain maps? I first saw this ages ago but it happened recently. 

 

My Pz III/IV seemed to get Steppes quite often. Then, a week or two ago, I played my usual daily doubles and I think it was three vehicles had the same three maps that they'd had the day before. 

 

Sometimes I'll not see a map for several battles and then jump in tank X and get map Y. I'm sure that a lot of it is my perception, but I'm not joking about the Pz III/IV. :hiding:

 

I don't know exactly how it all works, but it certainly appears as though the same maps are on both servers on the rare occasion I switch between them on any given day. Is there any reason why they can't both be different?

All maps available every minute of everyday would be more preferable than set maps per day / time span.
