Poll: Map and Mode Voting? Poll (606 member(s) have cast votes)

How do you feel about the new Map and Mode voting system?

  1. Map and Mode voting should stay (159 votes [26.24%])

    Percentage of vote: 26.24%

  2. Only Map voting should stay (95 votes [15.68%])

    Percentage of vote: 15.68%

  3. Only Game Mode voting should stay (15 votes [2.48%])

    Percentage of vote: 2.48%

  4. I think BOTH Map and Mode voting should be REMOVED (337 votes [55.61%])

    Percentage of vote: 55.61%

This system wasn't even tested in PTS before going live with It. This is unacceptable. I would rather see this P.O.S system removed and NEVER BRING IT BACK EVER AGAIN.

I am seriously restraining myself from just uninstalling the game and moving on. I cannot put into words how dissatisfied I am with the voting system... Well, no need to explain, you all know how I feel - this absolutely destroys the game for me.

I think, I can live with the voting screen, but would wish for a few tweaks:

a ) A default vote for Game Mode. Voting time is short and having tabbed away I often miss it... also it would allow PGI to group me with likeminded players...
b ) Instead of a hard majority decisions, let's decide about chances. 15 votes go to Skirmish and 5 to Assault? Start the random generator and if it hits 1-75% we get Skirmish, and with 76-100% we get Assault. This way, even if you're the only player on the whole server who loves conquest, you get to play it, at least once in a while or more often then now.

OTOH: If you remove it and revert to the old System, perhaps make the Matchmaking-Settings priorities instead of mandantory items, i.e. if having Conquest de-selected, the matchmaker might take Conquest still into account, but only having checked if it can match you with everything else.

Being unable to play the maps I enjoy the most (the hottest ones) turned me really dismal on that patch evening, and then I discovered that people avoid conquest too (this is my favorite mode). A combination of both is now impossible to see...
Roll back the patch, please, so that we, players, can play again.

I would rather wait a little more when searching for groups than suffer through this.

I say away with the current voting system. There are more ways to create incentive to play without decreasing diversity of play. Since diversity is an incentive explore those other paths firts.
  • If there absolutely must be map voting make it a choise of 2 maps and group the maps per heatscale (2 hot or 2 temperate or 2 cold etc),

If game mode changed to 4v4 or 12v12 would you keep that as a game mode voter? That way you could implement 4v4 without dividing the players into 2 queues.

As far as map voting... if they can keep it in to get a great sense on which maps need desperate improvement. I'm looking at you Terra Therma

I only play Community Warfare - well when it is happening - so this terrabad voting is no issue to me. But in saying that why have a system that makes you play everybody else's favorite maps almost all the time, where is the fun in that PGI..... ohhh wait you don't care......

I thing need +2 second for voting time. Only 3 maps and all modes. May be show in future

Voiting 3 maps +
Non voiting random time of day (night, day etc.) icon on map picture
Non voiting random weather (blizzard, ashy storm, hurricane, heavy rain, etc) icon on map picture

Voiting all modes or leave as is now 2 modes.

But need redesign all maps + much graphics + destructible, curved objects + trees and rocks, roofs of buildings not withstanding all the heavy mech (but not light) + aminations (small auto-robots activities on map) etc.

I think the whole thing needs to go, but what is even more annoying is that it doesn't seem to show the enemies voting. So last night we had a 7 man and got conquest voted to 75 percent. We were excited to finally get conquest but apparently the other team thought otherwise and it still showed it as being 75 percent when we dropped for skirmish. Isn't mob rule fun?

I think that either the voting for both should stay or make game mode and map completely random.

I would prefer they remove voting and make both map and mode random. It is starting to get pretty tedious playing the same maps and mode again and again and again .....

I think both should be removed. Especially the map voting. Otherwise the laservomit gets another slight boost since we will play cold maps far more often.
Therra Therma is never chosen....i don't like that map but it makes players with laservomit boats regret their choice of inflexible builds at least a little bit.

I think the Map vote is great.
Assault vs skirmish is pretty much the same now that turrets have been removed again.
But we should be able to choose if we cant to play conquest or not.

But i'm more worried about the map voting. Cold maps and maps with geared towards long range warfare is constantly being chosen.

Yeah, let's vote on the voting system.

Well,.....

But it's crap, agreed.
In my case, I simply don't look, pretend everything is randomly.
