I think this is a problem we will have forever where we have people wanting to play only the maps they like, and the other ones who want the playerbase to have variety. I respect people that enjoy their favorite map and want to be competitive in it. But im sincere, and one of the things i absolute hated from Voobly was how the only 3 maps you could play with someone was BF, Arena or Arabia. And arabia took 90% of the lobbies. Try setting up a lobby with a different map, because you will spend an hour waiting for someone to join.When you force a BF player to play Arabia or an Arabia player to play BF both are angry, don't enjoy the game, look for other options
totally agree. Golden pit is just the superior version. But i guess they received so many criticism about the last map pool, they just picked something different.Gold Rush is a strictly inferior version of Golden Pit.
anything they do someone will complain anywayhope there's a random civ queue before they end-of-life the development on this game
seems like everyone is going to complain about the map pool no matter what it is. you might think this pool is fine. i think it's mostly stale because there's nothing new and most of the maps are just scenarios
i think a random civ option would be an easy way to get some variety into the game without making anyone upset
Every pack need one eloThey could put similar maps in a pack and let us ban this kind of map.
Pack 1: Arabia, Gold Rush, Lombardia, Golden Pit, Mongolia, Ghost Lake, Cenotes
Pack 2: Islands, Migration, Bog Islands, Continental
Pack 3: BF, arena (maybe), other similar mps
Pack 4: Nomad, Mountain Pass, Land Nomad, Mega Random
And then, let us ban 2 or 3 packs
how do you care, you playing? :PNot a perfect map pool but definitely a big improvement from other ones. As people pointed out, golden pit is a much more balanced map than the other resource in the middle based maps. IMO, the amount of water focused maps (islands in this map pool) should always be kept to only one because you either want to play full water maps or you don't, so it's pointless to make people waste more bans on them.
Happy to finally see a change in the map pool that atleast makes me think they are starting to understand what people want.

Golden pit is much worse than gold rush. At least in the second map you see aggresion every game. It just needs to lose the damn wolves.
Yeah, gonna have to agree with Nicov here. While goldrush can have some pretty bad map gens atleast there's potential for early aggression and variety in early game. I get that golden pit is more "fair" but what that means is wall FC which really makes it boring and killed the map in my eyes a long time ago. Nicov swears there used to be a version that wasn't FC each time and if so I'd like to see those scripts.Golden pit is much worse than gold rush.

I wish there was serengeti or land madness instead of hideout (what's the purpose of this map when you already have arena?)
It's probably the best map pool in the last few months though. Hell even Heart approves it.
