2v2 TMM Matchmaker Pool

TMM Pool Thread History and Feedback

For the TMM matchmaker pools going forward, I will leave this thread open to comments and suggestions, updating only the first post with each monthly release so the full history can be shown on one page.

In addition, I had added a brief "Thought Process" column to the pool listing so people can know why something was used. This mostly concerns maps labeled "experimental" where feedback is scarce, indicating the map is chosen due to scarcity of selections, and to throw curveballs into diversity.

The map pool will ideally be released a couple days before the update so any final changes can be made without disrupting the scheduled time of use.

Let me also state that limiting new maps by 1-2 each cycle seems to be the most popular response received when I asked "how many new maps is too little, too many - when applicable - for matchmaker pools?"

Yes, forgot to request it.


Used proper version of Monument Valley, removed Drake's Ravine due to issues with the version I wanted to use. Drake's Ravine has been replaced with Point of Reach v4

November 2021 TMM Pool
Finally mapgen has arrived in the TMM pool. For now only in the familiar 10x10 and 20x20 category. In addition Captain Klutzes new beginner friendly map Tamara Pass has been added. Also the lesser known teamgame maps Actavia and Xaplials are making a debut the higher brackets.
The maps of the lower brackets now have a decreased draw probability for higher rated matches, since many 1500+ players were complaining about those maps. Please leave your feedback down below.

Don’t think a map where u can hard lock a whole player with double first bomber cuz of how close spawns are is that beginner friendly tbh

Beginners aren't double first bombering

That would apply to all first bomber maps, doesn't change that it was like the biggest complaint of new players since forever.

@ftxcommando which map are we talking about?

Tamara Pass

We should get a "2v2 matchmaker feedback thread going" as this is supposed to just be the pools posted here. Feedback is noted, though, not ignoring it!

December 2021 TMM Map Pool
We'll be adding a lot of old maps that has been overlooked in order to add presence to them and also variety for the 2v2 pool as in the past few months we've seen an influx of repeated maps returning back to the pool
If you're unaware of the current system update please refer to this thread below.
