Why there's no map rotation on AoE III

I feel that a lot of classic maps that I used to play, there’re not anymore on the map pool on the matchmaking. Any explanation? Map balancing?


We don’t even have a map pool list

I agree, so bored of playing the same few maps again and again. They added new ones in the African DLC but it feels like just a handful of maps on repeat. The game has so many good competitive maps to offer.

I thought they rotate the competitive map pool? It could probably be done more often though but usually when there’s an update they swap a few maps.


For those interested, here is the list of maps


I suppose that because of the release of the new DLC, African maps must be more common than classic ones.
