Dev's comment: We've decided to introduce a new rotation strategy after careful consideration of player feedback regarding our map rotation system. Rotations will now vary between map selection and random map regions.
In regards to the new rotation for random map regions, Sanhok will no longer be a permanent fixture and instead, Rondo will now be available for selection within the Normal Match rotation pool. Through this update, we aim to offer players the flexibility to play the new map at their convenience - and what's important, we've reduced split queues by implementing a new feature that'll match players who select Rondo along with those who select random map selection in a single pool.
Recognizing that player preferences differ across regions, we believe implementing two distinct rotations could be more effective than our current single one. And to address some regular community thoughts that we receive, completely eliminating the rotation system or enabling all servers to choose their preferred maps will ultimately lead to affecting essential factors such as matchmaking times, which brings more challenges.
The updated system below has been shaped largely by your feedback and the preference data we've gathered so far - we're eager to hear your thoughts on this new system, so please share your feedback after giving it a try!
※ Please note that PC players can anticipate map changes every Wednesday at 2 AM UTC, while Console players can expect the same every Thursday at 7 AM UTC.
※ In Random Map regions, larger maps have a 22.2% probability of being selected, while smaller maps have a 11.1% probability.
※ Please note that the features and updates described below are subject to change or removal due to issues such as bugs, in-game problems, and community feedback. The images used are intended as visual references only; the actual game may look different as the builds are continually developed and refined before release.
※ The following updates apply to Normal Match and Custom Match.

Dev's comment: Adding a casting time to acquire enemy Blue Chips is to add a risk element to the game, making each action more strategic.

As we acknowledge various community preference regarding this system, we are committed to engage in thorough communication and proceeding comprehensive evaluations to refine the Recall System moving forward.
