So far it does not quite reflect a truly random distribution, which is however supposed to happen:

All maps are on equal ratio, apart from Malinovka, Himmelsdorf, and Mines, which in total occur more often due to the fact that newcomers battles are limited to the three.
Update:

2. Yes, its true the sandbox maps are the most popular throughout the tiers. There is a technical justification of that.

View PostOverlord, on 28 February 2012 - 12:26 PM, said:

It relates to the allocation of server resources and allows to save them.

Update 2: war4peace noticed that the map Province was added to the newbie rotation in 0.7.2.

Update 3: in 0.7.3 the map Province appears in random (standard) battles only in battle tiers 1 and 2 (sandbox battles). No restrictions are placed on it in other game modes.


Now add your data!

How to count:
You need to be recording replays of your battles, then use this little tool I wrote that counts the maps for you (extract into your replays folder): download here (v3.4.6.2) - needs Microsoft .NET Framework 4 installed, you'll usually have it but if necessary you can get it here. - not updated for v0.8.1, I'll retire this project. Thanks to all who contributed over time.

Leave the check box to exclude battle tiers 1 & 2 and to exclude clan wars checked, it will filter results for those battle tiers and for clan wars. The tool also tries to detect and ignore replays from training rooms. Then press the left button of the tool for a total map count and copy & paste the complete result into this thread.

The right button of the tool gives you an overview of maps played for each tank, you can even export that as an HTML file, but it is not relevant for this thread.

Now post the correlation function. I have the feeling that the maps aren't cycled randomly, but are bunched. Just this evening, it happened 3 times that I played the same map twice in a row. But maybe I'm just being paranoid  :Smile-hiding:

I really want to see them introduce the ability to filter out a few maps we don't want to play. Yesterday I got force-fed Malinovka so many times (on several different tanks) I logged out.

looks about right but Abbey is close to Phohorovka for me. I play Abbey a lot.

(tier 2 tanks go up to battle tier 6, but since they can only play a limited number of maps they pull the higher tier tanks in those battle tiers into these maps).


I thought the maps were limited by battle tier (might be recalling this incorrectly though).

And why would Steppes be so high up?

I thought Only battle tier 1&2 get put on Himmelsdorf/Mines/Malinovka..

Newly released maps have a higher rate of occurrence.
Also, the sample is not large enough. - From a scientific standpoint it needs to be 10x larger!!!!! /derp

from "you ask we reply Q&A"

When will an option for choosing which maps you want to play be implemented? If so, would it be a premium account only thing, and what kind of limits would this have?

You won’t be able to choose the map you like. Instead you will be able to put a ‘veto’ on one map (it will remove them from random map selection). Most likely, it will be available for all members, but premium membership or a gold cost (this is still a discussion) will allow you to ‘veto’ additional maps.

Campinovka is so desolate that it's easier on the server load.   :D

The map that shows the most limited amount of imagination turns out to be the most popular...

A pattern is forming here me thinks.

Thanks Plasma_Fire, added your list to the OP and combined it with mine. Starting to see a trend develop.

Neat idea. Unfortunately I just arrived at work (first action, check forums  :Smile-playing: ), but in about 9-10 hours from now I'll be able to add my own numbers to the pool.

Did all the work manually when server kicked me out last night. But it looks like you have a tool for it snib. If so, I wouldn't mind to use it on further occasions, so if you could point my nose towards it, I'd be a very thankful happy panda.
Here are the statistics for my last 1119 battles:

  1. Mines                   70                 6,3%

  2. Ensk                     65                 5,8%

  5. Siegfried-line     54                 4,8%

  6. El Hallouf           52                 4,6%

  7. Himmelsdorf     52                 4,6%

  8. Lakeville             51                 4,6%

  9. Murovanka         51                 4,6%

  10. Abbey               49                 4,4%

  11. Fishing bay     47                 4,2%

  12. Karelia             45                 4%

  13. Sand River       44                 3,9%

Here's what I found. Battle tiers 1 and 2 were not counted.

I think the numbers for Swamp and Fjord are interesting... one seems to be getting preferential treatment, the other not at all. Malinovka still trolls them all though.

malinovka		65
ensk			 57
fjord			55
prokhorovka	  53
siegfried line   52
mines			50
abbey			49
lakeville		49
arctic region	47
himmelsdorf	  47
karelia		  42
ruinberg		 41
cliff			40
sand river	   39
erlenberg		37
ell hallouf	  37
swamp			36
steppes		  36
mountain pass	35
redshire		 34
westfield		34
fisherman's bay  25
murovanka		24
komarin		  24

total games	1008

Thanks for adding to it, this is actually more interesting than I thought it would be. OP updated, making it a big collection of all your data in one table.

I suppose the good news is that Komarin is the least likely map so far.

@elwoodblues23: Uncharacteristically I wrote no code for this one, I simply did a dir /b on my replay folder, used a quick regular expression search & replace in my text editor to convert to csv format, and then opened it in Excel. Don't know how the others did it or if there are any tools available (wouldn't take long to write one).

Similar here, but after "dir /b" I used Excel's "Text to Columns" tool to get a simple list of maps.

I thought me being paranoid that my most hated map, campinovka, is the one that I get the most. Now I see its true. Damn conspiracy!  :Smile-izmena:
