[UPDATED 6th Feb 2016]

Tank Commanders,

Thank you for participating actively in the recent poll about the future of maps in World of Tanks. Thanks to your responses, we were able to come up with a list of the maps which players think are most in need of work.

Here are the 10 maps voted most in need of improvement:

1 Stalingrad 218
2 Pilsen 211
3 Kharkov 192
4 Overlord 150
5 Ensk 145
6 Sacred Valley 141
7 Swamp 136
8 Prokhorovka 108
9 Live Oaks 100
10 Fisherman's Bay  91


In addition to your votes, we have also taken into account any feedback that accompanied the votes.

This feedback has been assessed in three categories:

  1. Visual – In this category, we look at what you said about the visual aspects of a given map.
  2. Technical – In this category, we consider your feedback about the framerates per second, loading times, texture loading, and other feedback about the technical aspects of the map.
  3. Gameplay – In this category, we take into account your opinions on the difficulty of playing on a given map with different types of vehicles, and whether the map causes players to rely on a particular type of vehicle.

The following points are the opinions of players, and at this time, do not reflect the intentions of Wargaming to make changes to particular maps. They serve only to inform you that we have gathered such feedback and have taken them into account.

Your fellow tank commanders have mentioned the following:

  • Some would like Kharkov removed
  • Some would like to see the Port map to return to WoT
  • They would like to see previous Asian maps return to WoT, or a new Asian map
  • The maps in Random rotation should be made available to a wider bracket of tiers


Based on your feedback and the votes you've cast, we will look into improving these maps you've voted for while retaining the positive features of these maps. However, if we determine that there is no way to improve a map, we will remove the map from rotation.

Thank you once again for your feedback. We look forward to delivering a better game experience in upcoming updates.

The poll news was published on 22nd January 2016. The section below contains the original text.
