Game needs to have its old maps back. Half the HOTS maps have been removed for this promotion.

Is that why I got the Hanamura and Ravenlord map like five times each?


Yea. There's like 13 maps now or something but they're limiting the map queue to six maps right now.

They said it's because:

A. They want Hanamura being played a lot since it's new and they want it playtested by the community for feedback

B. They didn't want the large influx of new players coming in with the 2.0 update and nexus challenge to be overwhelmed learning so many maps.


Personally I feel it's just awful and could've been handled differently. Both of those issues could've been solved without limiting the map pool for everybody.

I've noticed they don't tend to permanently pull maps, but they only keep 5 or so different maps in rotation at any given time, and cycle through them over time, pulling one while bringing another one back.

I do kind of wish they'd just leave all the maps in rotation and let them come up as they do. I'm not sure I understand why they limit the rotation so much.

I personally would actually love the option to manually exclude certain maps - there are maps I just don't enjoy playing at all.

That's lame. I mean, I get why they did that but I had the Raven lord map 4 times in a row. By then I was getting almost desperate for a different map, just to shake things up a bit.
Nothing to report here

Holy s*** yes.

Whoever the f*** at blizzard decided we'd only have 4 maps in rotations is just borderline trolling at this point.

Hanamura once or twice is fine, but forcing me to play it 5 times in a row is bulls***, it's also one of the less entertaining maps they have.

Like, bring back the old maps, how is this fun

*OP puts on a smug face trying to disguise their lisp* "Heh, well played Blizzard, truly an original and witty 'ploy' *wheeze, stuffs mouth with doritos*, no one has ever done such a devious 'ploy' before *belch*, certainly not Blizzard, with HotS, for Overwatch cosmetics, specifically the Genji cosmetics...nuh-uh never has that been done before."
Bart-Mangled Banner is the greatest Simpsons episode. It is great for the exact same reason american audiences hate it: because it captures them so accurately.

Hanamura is the worst map by far.

This ended up being the first MOBA I played. Didn't care for it. The fact that you eventually have to wait a minute plus to respawn especially kills it for me.
