can 7v7 matches be limited to smaller maps like ranked battles?

would a map filter, be possible, so if you really hate a map, you can avoid it. But at the same time it would require multiple options, so you can't go to same map, all the time. would probably help settle all the hate from different people hating on different maps.

base capping is nearly impossible and pointless on small maps, and sometimes very easy and hard to counter on large maps

, would you consider a weighted cap time based on the size of the map?

Please stay on topic.  Also, I hid a couple of questions as they were beyond rude.  If you are going to ask questions, make sure you leave any rude annotations out or I will not pass them along. 

 

It's that simple.

When do we get the proper amount of bushes on our maps?

We get this until after Xbox360 is not supported by WoT Console.  They holding onto it because money comes through that platform.  I feel they are trying for the quick buck, I just hope not at the expense of the games future.  It doesn't make sense to me people have money to keep buying tanks but not enough to upgrade their console.  I am a PS player so not sure but thought Xbox1 and Xbox360 on the same XBL account, so then tanks they bought with 360 should go to Xbox1 system.  If I am wrong sorry.

1.) Is any chance to "upgrade" Monte Rosa map from monochrome to technicolor ?

(And eventualy remove some bugs from there.)

 

2.) Is possible to rework this map (IceBound/ Monte Rosa) to summer version as last time Nomonham ?

 

Thank you and have a nice day :-)

Any chance he will let good players test the maps so that they can tell him if they play well? Most of the console exclusive maps are frankly not fun and have no flow. They look amazing visually, no doubt about that, but gameplay wise.. not so good.

For some maps it seems like the spawn on one particular side wins more often than not due to location of flags, terrain, etc.  I'm assuming that information is tracked on win percentages based on spawn locations.  Could you provide some additional insight into when it is determined that the spawns should be adjusted i.e. win percent of spawn A is winning 55% of games so spawn needs to be adjusted?

Ranked battles have a limited number of available maps and becomes quickly boring. Any chance of taking some of the larger maps and appropriately cropping them to the correct size for ranked battles. Possibly increasing the number of available maps with minimal effort on your part.

Will we ever get to see the original Skorpion Pass map in all its' glory again? Since the removal of half a click form the map it's become a shadow of its' former self...

Just watched the latest weekly assault stream on YouTube, and it is mentioned that we can also ask war stories related questions too so:

Why does Russia have to play the bad guys in every story they’re involved in? Even when they’re good guys it’s vs bad guy Russians.

If this question isn’t acceptable I can ask a war story/map related question:
Any chance we’ll see war story maps (apart from El Alamein since that has already been announced) in Multiplayer? While most WS maps are reskins of MP maps, some of the WS maps look amazing and some look even better than the original MP versions (e.g. the London map vs ruined capital/Paris map)

S.A.

 

Edit: added in El Alamein already being announced and so is not part of my map question, thanks to BrogueOne for reminding me about El Alamein map :)

Well yes I saw that but we don’t know if it will be the same as in WS (it says it’s inspired by that WS level, but that doesn’t mean the same), even if it were to be the same, my question still applies to the other WS maps such as the previously mentioned London version of Ruined Capital or the Cuban crisis map reskins of prokohrovka. Love some of those WS maps :)

 

Either way thanks for the reminder about El Alamein, edited my map question so that El Alamein isn’t involved in my question (probably better way to word it, I suck at wording things today)

Something to keep in mind.... and something I feel like I’ve already heard from Chad in a different stream..... Most of the War Stories maps are just altered versions of existing maps, but might not work for multiplayer because they’re balanced for specific scenarios and AI behavior.  An example would be the modified Dukla Pass from the new artillery WS..... it would be nearly impossible to balance for games because of the huge cliff.

 

Oh.... I would also like to mention that the Berlin map was first introduced in War Stories.

Is it possible the scale some of the maps per tier? Such as Kasserine and Dukla pass being 1200m2 for battle tier 8 and up but 1000m2 for battle tier 7 and under. Just have the border make the map smaller, similar to the way Thiepval Ridge was when the centennial event was happening.
