I don't think you are going to like the outcome. There's a reason they are posting this on social media and not the forums. Be prepared for nomnomnom or Campenburg to be the top map in the game you will have to play every 3rd battle.

 

Edit: Max corrected me, looks like it is on the forums as well. Turns out I'm the frothy goober on this one.

 

You also spelled Campenburg wrong. FTFY though :trollface:

but what if your vote for Prok is not enough for the base map to get increased rotation but might have helped the other maps? Hopefully the vast majority of voter select base map versions and then WG can assume the rest.

 

You have a point.

 

Here is what I think WG has missed in this whole map building thing. While there are certainly maps that certain classes of tanks will have a better chance at performing well, there are some maps that completely and almost totally make certain classes of tanks useless.

 

In my opinion, the perfect/worst example of a map like that would be Himmelsdorf, followed closely by Ruinburg (these are just a couple of examples, I am sure many have others to add). While not impossible, it is difficult to play either of those maps with arty/light tanks.

 

On the other hand, look at a map like Steppes, Live Oaks, Prok and several others, just about every class of tank has a place/job/chance at doing what said class of tank was made to do. 

 

Why WG insist on making maps that cancel out 1 or 2 classes of tanks is beyond me. Maybe with this survey-poll they will get a good grasp/understanding of what the "informed-skilled" player base is looking for and move in that direction.

 

Will see...

I'm voting but it's kinda dumb that the individual maps are surveyed and not the map environment. If i like Westfield do I vote for all 4 westfield/panama maps? seems dumb. Just geographical place names should be surveyed in such a wide open survey

Each environment is a different map with their own weights. While players see them as the same map, they aren't and have to also be set up in the system. So vote for your 5 favorite maps to play. What they are is up to you. :honoring:

And, on a side note, can we get a poll on map mode too?  Some how I think either Encounter or Assault would be gone.

No plans on changing the game modes, they are already weighted by popularity and no game modes will be removed. :honoring:

I guess some of us were hoping for Encounter to be gone, that battle mode only exaggerates the poor play of the uninformed player base.

Why would the survey only available to those that use FB?

 

Couldn't you supplement it here too? so those that are on the forum but do not use social media can participate?

And something else. Why not put it in the news feed of the game?  Where we see certain tanks are on sale, add a page that informs all players about the survey.

Nope.  Best guess is they’ll collect replies for a week, spend a week analyzing the results, take another week to write up the results in the correct languages, realize they’ve messed up a translation and take two more weeks to fix it. :trollface:

I like the idea that they are giving us the ability to vote on the maps we do like.

What concerns me GREATLY is the fact that you can vote an infinite amount of times. You know that people with an agenda will abuse the crap out of that intentionally voting for the most hated maps, more often than the good maps. It should have been a mass email, and only an option to vote 1 time.
