    I don't "hate" any of the maps. I admit there are some I like less but no big deal to me. I don't see banning eliminating the repeating map issue if the system uses the same method it does now.

    How about this idea? My intent is to reduce the repeating map syndrome.

    1) The system creates a list of all the maps played in the last 3 matches for all the players in the new match. A maximum lookback of 3 hours.
    2) A count of each map played is built.
    3) A random selection is made from the map(s) with the lowest count.

    Using 10 maps for my examples.

    Ex1:
    Map1: 3
    Map2: 2
    Map3: 5
    Map4: 1
    Map5: 6
    Map6: 3
    Map7: 4
    Map8: 6
    Map9: 0
    Map10: 0

    In this case, a random selection of maps 9 and 10 is made. No one sees a repeat.

    Ex2:
    Map1: 3
    Map2: 2
    Map3: 5
    Map4: 1
    Map5: 6
    Map6: 3
    Map7: 4
    Map8: 4
    Map9: 1
    Map10: 1

    In this case a random selection of maps 4,9 and 10 is made. 1 person may see a repeat.

    Ex3:
    Map1: 3
    Map2: 3
    Map3: 3
    Map4: 3
    Map5: 3
    Map6: 3
    Map7: 3
    Map8: 3
    Map9: 3
    Map10: 3

    In this case a random selection of all maps is made. Three people may see a map repeat.

    This would be better idea than banning maps by far. Like you said you don’t hate any maps. I personally dislike one map so banning isn’t a big deal but repeating a map over and over again is my main issue.

    Very unpopular are long range maps like Frozen Guard and Ice Mines. Personally I dislike the new maps, especially Shattered Desert, but also the others, they are not as good as the old maps.

    Personally, my least favorites are Ice Mines and Splitstone Quarry.

    Of course over the weekend I got Splitstone 3 times in a row.
    This is exactly what I want to minimize.
