Hey people.

Generally I am not a conpiracy theory enthusiast ( though I watch closely Eddie Bravo and laugh) but this thing is beyond me.

Ghost town map appears A LOT in the map rotation, and I mean A LOT.

Funny thing is that others I have asked in chat have noticed the same thing.

I happen to like the particular map.

Cheers

Yes I have felt the same way as well. For example two days ago I started a session and it was the first map. Then there was Cliff next with Ghost Town following it. I was also sure I had the map 3 times in short period of time that time as well, but that wasn't the case. I didn't see the map in the next 3,5h according to the replay files. I did have it once more in that session and it was the second game in the next session. This I think is what gave me the feeling that it keeps appearing constantly most recently.

 

I checked my replay folder though by sorting with name of the map. It shows that the map appears 1-2 per session for me, with one time it appearing 3 times in a session. I have assault turned on so that affects it. I've felt the same thing about Karelia btw.

 

So yeah, the map in reality doesn't appear too often for me, it's merely my confirmation bias at work.

Noticed or confirmation bias.

 

Easily checked though.  Just show us a listing of your replays folder.

Yeah, I just did in the replay files.

Nowhere near what I thought, still 5 maps out of the last 18 was ghost town (lost city as it is listed).

That's a lot indeed. Do you have Encounter and Assault enabled? That and a bit of time between the matches or hopping to another server would explain it a bit.

True.

I blocked this map, but still I got a lot of battles in Ghost Town Assault mode, so I unchecked an assault mode in settings. Problem solved.

Well, I just looked through the replays currently in my folder before deleting them, and of the 55 replays exactly zero were on the Ghost Town map. So I guess I'll have to start a thread now in which I'll ask if that map has been removed.
