A Trial Run of New Maps in Modern Warfare 3’s Ranked Play Mode Comes to an End

After a trial run, the evaluation period for new maps in Modern Warfare 3’s Ranked Play mode has concluded. Despite this, the feedback from the community suggests that there is a positive sentiment towards the potential permanent addition of these maps.

Vista and Departures: New Maps in Modern Warfare 3 Season Two Update

Vista and Departures are two new maps that were added as part of Modern Warfare 3’s season two update in February. Recently, these maps were given a week-long evaluation period in the Ranked Play ladder. While Vista and Departures have garnered plenty of fans for specific modes, there are still more aspects to consider.

The Decision and Community Feedback

In a recent update, Treyarch, the main developer behind Ranked Play in Modern Warfare 3, announced that the map evaluation period has been concluded. As a result, both Vista and Departures have been removed from all competitive game modes. Treyarch expressed gratitude for the feedback and gameplay data received during the evaluation period and stated that an update will be shared after the launch of season three, once the Call of Duty League and their teams have discussed the findings.

Social Media Response and Sentiments

The feedback and posts on social media platforms have been leaning towards positive sentiments, with many users expressing that Vista is ideal for respawn modes, while Departures works exceptionally well for Search and Destroy.

The Fate of the Maps and CDL’s Influence

The decision on whether Vista and Departures will be permanently added or not will come after the start of season three of Modern Warfare 3, which is scheduled to begin on Wednesday, April 3. However, it is essential for a decision to be reached before the CDL’s third Major qualifiers commence on April 12. Ultimately, the power to decide lies with the CDL and Treyarch, as they must consider the preferences and interests of the community.
