Please if possible, next time you think of something similar that reinvents the entire game, consider introducing a custom map on live servers so you can gather more feedback ahead of patch launch (since PTR has population and matchmaking problems and does not really serve a purpose except for targeted bug hunting).
XP anomaly was a complete mess at first but eventually it managed to improve the game as a whole. Weather addition wasn’t that horrible either but I’d rather not have it included at a cost of performance issues. This addition also introduced dozens of game breaking bugs and unintended interactions which no one realistically could could catch in single week, let alone fix the majority of them.
Looking forward to the map changes since we can only ban characters and not game worlds. This could be an amazing update that could put a spotlight on some of the less played heroes and underutilised talents. Hopefully it will allow you to expand the ranked map pool as well if community reception is positive. Many unique themes, tilesets and objectives is why I prefer this game to its competitors. Character pick priority is different each time overall making it a less mundane experience.
Haunted Mines for quick match until then?
