Last week, we announced a heap of July updates coming to Age of Empires II: Definitive Edition, including COMMUNITY VOTING on the ranked map pools.
With COMMUNITY VOTING, you’ll be able to use your voice to help determine the ranked map pool for the next two weeks. Our own BBQTurkman breaks down how this will work:
Ranked Map Picks!
As of the July update, there will be four available map pools in Ranked matchmaking:
- 1v1 RANDOM MATCH
- TEAM GAME RANDOM MATCH
- 1v1 DEATHMATCH
- TEAM DEATHMATCH
This week, community voting will be available for the 1v1 RANDOM and TEAM GAME map pools. Each will have several fixed maps available by default:
Based on telemetry and player feedback, the developers will then select several maps for each map pool:
- +2 maps for 1v1 RM
- +3 maps for Team Games
The final three maps for both pools will be determined by the community! Of the nine maps listed in each poll, the three that receive the most votes will be added to their respective map pools.
