Imo this is a complete waste of time on Blizzards end. Leave the maps the way they are. Arenas don’t last very long as it is. So now we will have the same maps over and over and over. You guys should be working in real problems in PVP instead.
It would actually of been so much better if blizzard came out with a map veto feature like they have in their RTS games where players can have 1 or 2 maps downvoted so they don’t have the option of getting those maps ever. It’s really a win win for everyone… it’s a win for the players as they won’t have to play on maps they hate and it’s a win for blizzard because they will get valuable data on which maps people genuinely dislike so they can choose to revamp them or trash them like Ring of Valor.
Comps can get hard countered so much harder on this map pool change. Love getting Blackrook Hold 5 out of 8 times when it’s a terrible map for the comp I’m playing at the time.
At minimum, revert this change for last two weeks of the season cause it’s gonna be so bad for end of szn pushes.
Still not a big fan of this change. Just feels like I get the same maps over and over, and as someone who can’t be considered a high-level player by any stretch, I don’t feel like it makes things less overwhelming.
I particularly dislike a couple of maps such as Blade’s Edge, but I’m not going to just not play the game mode for a week at a time because of that - I’d rather just have the opportunity to get more of the maps I do like at the same time, instead.
Arena Maps Rotation is terrible for gameplay diversity and strategies. We don’t even have a lot of maps to begin with. Please revert that change.
you guys are imbeciles if u feel 15 is too many. i feel like 15 isnt enough to begin with. up the pool to 20 maps and keep them all in constant rotation that way we never get bored. - a 15 yr player
Personally I think rotating the maps is fine. The big issue here for me is the hit to conquest/honor from Solo shuffle. The game mode is fun and feels random but the ques are fairly long for dps. So the rewards before 10.1 felt appropriate. Healers can cash in on this yes, but let them because there aren’t enough folks healing. The way rewards are now it is not alt friendly at all. I did 47 rounds and hit 1506 rating to net me 675 conquest and two great vault chests. Before 10.1 the amount of solos I did this week (over 100 rounds across all toons) I would have been able to get my 6 toons I pvp on to at least 2 great vault chests and capped on conquest. Folks that work and have kids yet still try to make time for this game won’t be able to have alts until the end of season as things stand now. For me this kills a great patch to the game and makes me not even want to play. My suggestion is make it so you can opt to que for solos that has a Heal on each team or just 6 dps. This would speed up que and match times. Or you know put the rewards back the way they were and just bump 2s and 3s to make them more appealing. There could also be a percentage for conquest/honor earned based on wins. 1 win= 50%, 2 = 75%, 3 = 100%, 4 = 100+% and so on. 50 conquest for 1 win means that you would still have to que for 27 solo shuffles (162 rounds) to cap for the 1st week and 75 for 2 wins would take 18 times (108 rounds).
my blood pressure has risen immensely from queueing into blades edge 4x in a row this week
please remove this terrible change
Change is trash, please randomize maps. Feels like crap qing into the same map 3-5x in a row.
Remove Blade’s Edge Arena from the rotation
This didn’t work. Please remove
please remove Blade’s Edge from the shuffle pool:
the Z axis makes games without voice comms (solo shuffle) extremely stressful to play especially for new players and for healers
I would ask to remove Mugambala for the same reason too but I’ve learned not to ask too much from you guys or you whine about it
I’ve played a few dozen arena skirmishes today and over half are blade’s edge arena.
Dear lord I hate that map, these rotations aren’t working. Fix this trash or you’ll see more and more people avoiding arena during certain weeks.
Remove map pools and add the missing maps to shuffle (hook point/sewers/ashamanes/robodrome/empyrean)
just delete map pools already. this week is awful
like if there’s too many maps then remove the garbage maps no one likes. stop forcing your trash designs on us, literally no one cares you wasted assets revamping blades edge.
no one cares that hook point and mugumbala were recently created in bfa. they’re awful.
nokhud sucks too
I see on the PTR they are increasing the map pools to 10. I still think they do nothing other than make some weeks particularly frustrating since you just end up playing the same maps over and over. Please remove them
Remove map rotations with 10.2, thanks
Is there an in-game way of seeing the current map pool?
Remove blades edge from the game
