quick search
what maps do we use when we do a quick search? new esoc maps, or still old standard maps?
if the answer is the 2nd one i wont be that interested in the new fp. yes you can hold a game outside, but few will play with u if you are pr 25+. the new patch should not be created just for a few top players.

It's a super important question for sure.

Don't tell anyone, but this is something which is being actively discussed. I think it's a good idea to start hearing how the community feels about it.

[s]Though I'm not sure I get it 100%. Would you rather play on ESOC maps or old RE, for quicksearch?[/s] (ok i get it now)

http://strawpoll.me/5448258

Just for info, it's entirely possible for us to change the quicksearch map pool to whatever we want. So please go ahead and tell us how you think about it

I edited your link because it links to the results and that's super annoying.

And I voted for ESOC only maps, since RE maps are just unbalanced, boring and lame.

Can't you give players the option to cycle between different kinds of maps?

ex: RE maps, ESOC Maps, Both.

If you chose ESOC Maps you'd only play against people who also chose ESOC Maps.

We''re discussing QS here. Splitting up QS maps would be unrealistic.

splitting that is only possible if u have a large player base which we dont have ( a really larg on eactually because even on re patch it is possible to wait 10 min plus for a game in qs )

Both. There are many good maps out out there and if I wouldn't be able to play the old maps aswell , the map pool would be just to little. There are many good maps out there and even if good doesn't meens balanced maps I'd think about playing FP: No Patagonia, No Mongolia, No Deccan, No Yukon, No Yucatan, No etc, No Fun. ES has done a great job to make this many maps and I don't want to miss them.

Texas is fine. It requires other playstiles. Hispaniola just way to few land res and too many whales to be called balanced. Andes might be fine.
Just do Garja Maps+ES Maps.

A mix of both kinds. All Garja's maps except Cascade Range + Yucatan, Painted Desert and perhaps New England.

Maybe the poll should be included in this page rather then in iNcog's post.

imo there isn't a single standard map that is close to being balanced. Sag is probably the closest but it still regularly screws.

+fixed sonora, pampas, siberia, yukon, himalayas, silk road (just the old fp map pool).

Given that there is an autoupdater, couldnt you cycle map pools of ~10 maps monthly. Even better: we could vote for 2 maps to be replaced by 2 other maps every month or two months here.

Since I primarily play India I love hispanola lol. With 600 starting food and an extra wood crate I can 10/10 with basically no idle tc and once they other guys eats his like 8 starting turkeys I basically just auto win.

That sounds like a game-destroying idea. The X crys because his favorite map is banned for 2 months. The A just likes the map. B hates the maps and everything is fine for him.
This idea is just not good.

~10 maps is way to little for a map pool.

you can make it for quicksearch only, decrease the duration and increase the mappool. 1 month 15 maps qs only, does that sound good?

Because thats an idea Id really like. Especially if we could produce some more maps monthly.

I do not get the reason for banning maps. I play like 85% QS and there are many others who Play QS only.
And you need to include the old RE maps into the standard maps. People hosting Standard maps at the Game Browser want to have diversity. If we'd do your system QS and Standard Maps are only jokes compared to the previous QS and Standard Maps. If you come to the point to say: Hmm, I want to play Yukon. The you'd host a Yukon game. And no one will join you, as it is on ESO. But if you see Yukon in QS you are happy and both players play the map. If you don't have Yukon in QS and Standard Maps you kind of won't be able to play Yukon. And this is why the QS and Standard Map pool should be fixed.
