Maybe this has been discussed before but personally I think map bans have been added to ranked in has detracted from the ranked experience.
I understand the concept and that it offers players more choice in what map to play, however in reality it hasn’t worked so wondered the likelihood of the feature being removed.
Certain maps in the pool are rarely played and others you end up playing a lot. I would prefer to randomly play any map in the pool. People naturally ban maps they aren’t familiar with. If all maps were played more often people would start playing strategies on the currently rarely played maps improving the ranked experience overall.
Also not sure why Outback was removed from map pool for so long too, what is that about?
