The design director at Respawn Entertainment just created a poll on Twitter to get direct feedback from the players regarding map rotation in Apex Legends.

With the launch of season 7 of Apex Legends, Respawn introduced a new map called Olympus. The addition of Olympus meant players now have three different maps to play in the game. Respawn made Olympus the only map in the map pool for the first two weeks since it was still new and players had to get used to its layout.

Two weeks later, players are now accustomed to how the new map plays. Now the main question is how Respawn plans to schedule map rotations. Jason McCord who is the design director at Respawn decided to create a Twitter poll to collect data from the players.

Additionally, Jason also mentioned how the new map has been received quite well. Even though there were some outliers who were not impressed, most players in the community agreed Olympus was a breath of fresh air in Apex Legends.

Map rotation poll

Respawn seems to be taking feedback from the players directly to get meaningful feedback on how to properly schedule map rotations in the game. The inclusion of a new map in Apex Legends always divides the whole community regarding which one is the best.

And now the map rotation is one part Olympus and one part World’s Edge. The poll currently includes 4 different options: “Keep it rotating evenly”, “2 parts Olympus 1 part WE”, “1 part Olympus 2 parts WE”, and “24h Kings Canyon babeeeee”.

The current poll result shows most players still want the option to play in Olympus a bit more as it is still new for many players. Players can still vote on which course of action Respawn should take regarding map rotation.
