Excluded Maps: The First Details

One of the most commonly requested features is the ability to avoid a particular map in matchmaking. We're pleased to announce that we're rolling out such a feature in Update 1.5! Now you'll be able to block one map of your choice and avoid it in the matchmaking queue.

How Will It Work?     

With the release of this feature, we will have to make some additional tweaks to the matchmaker. This will ensure that you won’t get matchmade on your ‘blocked’ map under any circumstances. The Excluded Maps feature will only be available for Standard Battles, and not for Assault or Encounter Battles.

The feature will only work when playing Tier IV vehicles or higher and will be disabled for all three Grand Battles maps (Klondike, Nebelburg, and Hinterland).

Finally, if you wish to block a different map, you will have to wait at least 4 hours to pass since you banned the previous one.

How Will This Feature Work for Platoons?  

The feature will be available only to Platoon creators. The other Platoon members' Excluded Maps will be overridden by the Platoon creator's map list as long as they are part of that Platoon.

We are still working on the concept, so this feature may change significantly in the future. We would also like to hear your suggestions, so feel free to ask your questions and share your feedback!
