As the title says, blocked a map, had to play on the [edited] thing twice.

 

I would send a ticket but I have no faith in the customer service for WG for obvious reasons.

 

Is anyone else having the same issue?

I know that. I'm only on standard battles and NOT encounter or assault.

Have you checked your settings? Do you have Assault and Encounter enabled? Map blocking only works on randoms.

 

Dang - late response - sorry

Premium account run out?

Prem gives you 2 maps to block, standard only one.

Or

Renewed prem after its run out you will have to enable second map again.

It also doesn't work at battle tierIII and below and in a platoon only the block setting of the platoon leader is in effect.

So which is it?

Premium ran out? You were in a platoon not as a commander? Or you were playing tanks below tier 4?

I have no faith in OP returning to tell us what it was so I'll be starting the bets. My money's on he was not the commander in the platoon. I would have also guessed Ranked Battles but he hasn't played any.

Show us the replay then and your blocked maps now so that we can see if you changed it, although this isn't 

And how was it a troll response? You gave absolutely no information, you just wanted to blame the system and then also threw remarks at CS. Every time someone has complained about the map blocking not working, they have done something wrong or not understood what was going on. I have absolutely no faith in you being the first one to encounter problems and not be wrong.

 

PS. Are you sure that it's WoT premium and not WG premium?

I really don't see how providing a replay will help.  It will just be a random S Conq on Prohkorovka or however you spell it and the screen shot of a blocked map!

You swear, you throw a remark at CS and you gave no information or acknowledgement that you understand what the restrictions of map blocking are...

 

I offered help, list of the things you have to check. You just saying that you were playing an S Conq, not in platoon and you having premium days, and still getting on a blocked map is not enough to me. I still have absolutely 0 faith that you are suddenly the first player ever to encounter problems and not be wrong. If you are somehow the first one ever to have problems with map blocking, for real, this could actually help the devs. No one can help you or anyone in the future if you don't provide proof of what you claim happened. Exactly same applies to all the other bugs and glitches happening in this and every other game.

 

Post the replay please, my life doesn't end to having to watch another replay of an S Conq on Prokhorovka, in a standard battle.

Temporary lock.  Hold tight folks.

 

Right I'm unlocking this in the hope it can carry on in a mature and sensible way.

That's literally impossible if you have encounter and assault turned off.

I was of the understanding the MM map blacklist is a preference not a guarantee and if the MM is struggling to find a matchup for you that can occasionally result in you ending up in a blacklisted map regardless.

I blocked Paris since it was possible, and haven't had a single game there since. I've been on and off premium, assault and enounter turned off.

You would be surprised on how much info that can tell. Along with a screen of your blocked list. As the last rant we had on this. He did provide a replay. That showed he was in a platoon, playing assault. And he was not the platoon leader. Told us everything we needed to know. So yes, it can help.

How many of these threads are gonna keep popping up?...

 

Standard account blocks one map, premium blocks two, but if you had two blocked when your premium ran out, you'll have to manually re-block the 2nd one.

The feature only blocks standard maps, not the assault/encounter versions.

The feature is disabled for you if you are in a platoon, but are not that platoon's leader.

 

Check if any of the above happened. It's gonna be one of those things because it literally cannot be anything else.

That may well be it and would explain it.  Thank you for a helpful response.  Not many of those from certain folks sadly :)

Except it isn't AFAIK. The system is supposed to guarantee the exclusion of a single standard mode map (two if Premium) at tier IV or above, platoons being subject to the preferences of the platoon leader. If you are still seeing a map which you have excluded then either you are experiencing a bug (the first I've seen, congrats!) and you should report it to support with as much detail as possible or you are mistaken (in which case you are one amongst many) and should just admit it.

 

The first answer which fits your preconception is not always the correct one nor the most helpful one.

 

The caveat is that I may be wrong, they may have changed things since 1.5 when the system was first released but I can't find anything about it in subsequent patch notes.
