I don't know if its because the times that I play or just by random but a crap load of people always choose these two maps over the other ones even if that map was played the match before. Oh and god forbid if neither of them are choices because than a whole bunch of people leave. Now don't get me wrong I don't mind playing the maps but not over and over again.
I would LOVE to play Vortex or Meltdown in BTB... but if Exile or Ragnarok show up they automatically when by huge numbers...I would LOVE to see the stats on how many games are played on those two compared to others. I'm willing to bet that those two by themselves out number all others combined... even if you don't add Exile and Ragnarok together.
I agree with the TC on this one. Sure they're both good maps, but I am soooooo sick of playing them over and over. As far as smaller maps w/ less people involved go, I feel the same way about Haven. That map is picked like 95% of the time.
I'm also tired of exile and Ragnarok. Good maps. Doesn't mean they have to be chosen every damn time. They need to make it where if a stage gets voted for like 2 times in a row, it is excluded in the next 2-3 rounds of voting.
