So, like many others in the forums, I have placed Berlin as an excluded map and as such I should not have any battles on it. I also have Kharkov as the second excluded map.

 

I have just had a random battle where I fought on Berlin.  As soon as I realised this, the first thing I did once back into the garage was to check the excluded maps and Berlin and Kharkov were still there. 

 

So why did I get Berlln if I have excluded it?  And before anyone asks, no I was not in platoon, I was playing solo.

 

Anyone else have this happen to them??  

 

I have raised a support ticket, but I am not holding my breath

Only Standard maps are excluded.

 

You got Berlin Encounter.

Dammit.  

 

Before I added Berlin I had Paris and as Paris and Kharkov don't do Encounter, I was never seeing them......

 

Sneaky WG making Berlin encounter to get round people blocking it. 

 

Looks like standard battles only for me then.

Because the Encounter variants of that map is not the same. Some have small to major changes to compensate for the new cap circle location. Even closing off some spots 100%. So thus, it's a separate map file, and thus only standard battles works for blocks. Why they have yet to make a system to add each variant? Who knows.

 

Then again, as most I know have encounter off. I suspect it's not high on their priority list.

I had this issue too with Prokhorovka. I excluded it since it felt that I was always low tier with KV-2 fighting tier 8’s. Yesterday I still got it. With KV-2 as a low tier. :D

Doesn't say standard or encounter, those battles you played. Encounter is perfectly normal.

 

Alternatively low tier clubbing at a late hour (low server population indicates this - and most seem to play tier 8-10 at that time), means MM just drops you into those games because any game even on an excluded map is better than no game.

Edit: apparently simply doesn't work for seals at all.

Cruiser Mk III is a tier 3 tanks & the map exclusion only works at tier 4 & above (due to the small amount of maps at tier 3 & below).  It also won't work on Grand battle maps, encounter & assault.

 

In short, map exclusion only works from tier 4 onward & only on standard random matches.

You simply haven't read about how the exclude feature works, much like the OP.

Not clubbing. I'm really taking the 4x and 5x events to play low tiers that don't even have their major at 100%.

Having a lot of tanks really blows.

Considering new players start at tier 6 and can get to tier 10 in like a month of playing, either everything or nothing is seal clubbing conceptually.

Things are definitely faster than I remember. The referral program makes it even faster, with the whole 100% credit and xp bonus.

A new guy just plays like a premium account on reserves, every single match.

You got Berlin Encounter.

Which is a stupid system imo, they literally are still the same map, just tweaked a little bit. What makes this even more stupid, you can't even ban encounter maps, like, at all.
