Hey, we werent able to reproduce the issue, if this happens next time, could you record your screen?
Thx for the help, have a nice day

I literally just have it banned in multiplayer and 1v1, and while playing team games I still get Arena, every day when I play it.

Hi @Tiekel2524 !

We still cannot reproduce your issue u.u, could you record a video the next time you play?


This is still happening in 101.101.59165.0 8211018.

I was just given Islands despite this setting.

Hi @blastonguart !

We found a way to reproduce this issue, thanks!

This issue happened to me as well last week-end.
It draft Arabia twice in the day while it was banned :

PS : Being allowed to ban ONLY ONE map is not enough. Please let us ban 3, it will help against dodging.

Thank you.

Bans completely broken now

Unbanning maps in the selection screen after getting them when they were banned is NOT a solution. Issue still persists

Same issue for me in TGs, banned map gets chosen.

Bans do nothing. Get banned myself everytime I comment here. Devs/mods big time trolls and unfit for whatever they are doing.

This has happened to me three times this month. I queue 4v4 and ban nomad but still get it. Yes I’m banning it for Team RM not 1v1.
