Does this mean that the balance patch will be also on 17?

No, that never happens, the patch will be dropped before that for sure.

Before that? Or after that? (●´⌓`●)

Much better map pick from the devs this month. Even the voting maps are almost all very good.

I would like to see some love for Nomad again. It is quite a while ago we have seen that map.

For months I wrote this under most map vote section, but again:

Hideout and 4Lakes ALWAYS get voted in when they are up for vote. (Which means, like this time, we are only really voting for one map to be included because spot 1 and 2 are definitely going to those maps).

By now it’s completely clear that people want to play those maps. Just make them permanent!

For example: give up one of the Dev pick spots and just have it permanently for 4Lakes and Hideout (changing between those two maps every 2 weeks).

i second this :)))))))

You’re so lucky to get 2 of your favourite maps :smiley:

If I may ask, What maps would you vote for if you didn’t have to vote for 4 Lakes and Hideout? And what’s your opinion of Arabia and Arena?

oh yea nice rotation, without nomad forever, same 3 maps! (sarcasm)

No, that is not my point. I am not saying that Hideout and 4Lakes are my favourite maps!

They are statistically the most played maps after Arabia and Arena and I believe they would have a similar playrate as Arena if they would be implemented permanently.
They got voted into the mappool every single time possible since they implemented the voting system…

And there are very good reasons for it. They are both maps that can be played in a competitive manner but with a completely different meta compared to Arabia. Other Civs and build orders are effective on those maps.
But I am not going to spent too much time learning the meta for those maps if I don’t know they will still be playable two weeks later…

More love to Socotra. Really fun map

Yeah but they really need to remove the stone from this map.

Now that we can select a favourite map, I see no reason to limit the Map pool to 7 maps. Something like 12 maps with 9 votes and 3 dev picks would make for more choices for the players.

People voting here doesn’t even represent 10% of the players. Hell, maybe not even 5%.

What people want don’t be clear until we have an in-game all-language voting system

I agree. At least there should be a link to this map voting featured prominently in the main menu of the game (or even better the voting should be in-game).

However, as I mentioned those maps (when they are in the rotation) have high playrates. (I check map playrates regularly on aoestats…)
-> meaning people select to play these maps more often then other maps (whether they voted or not…)
