Excellent work! Thank you very much.
That is what I figured. The new 2v2 maps play much better than most of the current 2v2 maps in rotation. And players clearly agree.
NOTES OF INTEREST(I do not play 2v2 much):
Poltawa won the 2v2 contest but the mid buildings seem to scare players off. I always found engagements happened in the open more often than I would like as well, I attributed it to my noob play style. Some have said the map is too narrow and creates impassable MG walls.
Alliance of Defiance seemed as though balance may be an issue with the green cover centers. But every game I had on AOD was fun. Glad to see it is doing well.
FOW and Stadtschutt I only cued a couple times during automatch. Both seemed to play good on those few games. I had no complaints.
I would rate the new maps very similar to the played/veto chart SiphonX was kind enough to provide.
The other note is that Moscow Outskirts sucks, but there are two of them so it is artificially inflated and should also be at the bottom of the list.
Rails and Metal is also pretty bad, I have no idea how this 'train wreck' is the most played map. That map could be fixed in about an hour. But that will never happen. Anyone have a copy on steam I will fix it for my own pleasure
This all supports my thoughts that we need a 3v3 or 4v4 map contest soon. I predict we will see similar charts afterwards.
