Thanks for participating in this week’s poll! :white_circle::black_circle:


So, some thoughts…

Hideout is getting voted in as it hasn’t been seen much in the 1v1 mappool in the last rotations…

4Lakes is getting voted in because it gets voted in every single time that it is up for vote (for 1v1)!
→ which makes the rotating/vote in system a little bit pointless for this map.

Nomad is a hugely popular map for teamgames but doesn’t see much love in 1v1 games. It shows that players who play 1v1 and TGs have a very different mindset…

*Edit: perhaps I was wrong, Nomad is rising in popularity since I made my original comment :sweat_smile:


Its a 1% between 4lakes, nomad, ghost lake. Could swing either way I suppose.

We cant have a round without gold pit or gold rush… Come on, people

This is why letting people vote is a bad idea. It’s all the same maps every time. Crossroads and Hamburger should be forced in so people don’t spend all day with the same 3 bans every pool.


Yes 4 lakes and im Out of the cast

Hamburger and crossroads would honestly be my furst bans. We have already Islands and Volcanic island, I don’t really see why they should ofrce two more unpopular maps in the pool

Seems like i dont have enough bans this week.
Hopefully we also dont have these maps for EW (if this will be released in during this map pool). That would be pretty terrible for that game mode.

Hopefully we can get some good maps from voting into the map pool.

Three bans will work well for me this round it seems! Woo!

Disclaimer: Considering others will ban Volcanic Islands and Islands for me.

jokes on you, I want to play Nomad and Four Lakes :smiley: so most likely Arabia is getting ban lol


Four Lakes it is for us then my friend! I’m banning Arena, Nomad & Hideout! :slight_smile:

Im with you guys 4 lakes make it a static map

I need more bans this week :frowning:

only one open land map on this pool ??

Which map is not open:
Arabia or Four lakes? Also not sure how Volcanic Island will play out. Feudal pressure seems definitely the way to go on that map (but i havent really looked into the map gens of that map).

four lake is not land map .

Can you PLEASE FIX THIS MAP SYSTEM before losing all AoE players? I dont wanna play the same 7 maps the 15th month in a row its soooo freakin boring… Islands/Arena/Arabia/FourLakes/Nomad… EVERY TIME THE SAME… there are actually over 500 maps and you only manage to include 5 maps in the pool?


Arabia and Arena are fixed for a reason. No way that will change…
Island is only in the map pool because it is a dev pick. Otherwise it would never be in the map pool. Pretty sure about that one.
Nomad isnt really much in the 1v1 map pool. I am glad it is back after a while.
Four lakes seems to be a fan favorite and almost always gets voted in. Many people like it and as result it will be in the map pool frequently.

I am on your side with seeing multiple different maps in the voting, so we can also pick other maps some times. I would love to see more connections between the big ongoing tournaments and the maps in the map pool. Nowadays there is no connection at all.

#saveDM too! :slight_smile:
We played the other day when you were with Ellie. Thanks for stomping me! haha

Back to topic:
Arent they always forcing at least one new map into the pool? I dont remember Volcanic Islands… And I didnt recall Crater either. Perhaps they could force two, removing Islands?

On the other hand, the least common maps available for voting are at the bottom of the list. Sounds like players prefer the comfort of familiar maps.

I can understand why its frustrating for someone that plays 3-6 hours every day… But perhaps for a good portion (most?) of the playerbase they dont get to play as much and therefor dont get exhausted of playing the same map.
