As of right now, all of the Map Breakdowns have been updated to use the officially released 343 map overlays. We feel that this is a big step up in quality and presentation and hope you feel the same. Here’s a comparison between the v0.1 and v0.2 heatmaps:
It’s not just the underlying image that’s changed. We’ve made subtle changes to the colormap for the heatmaps, making it easier to see areas of interest and preventing outliers from messing up the colors for the rest of the map. Among these changes is a different color scheme for the kill death spread and ratio maps. Instead of going from blue to green to yellow to orange to red, as do the kills and deaths maps, the spread and ratio maps go from blue to white to red. White was chosen as the neutral color: for the spread map, regions of ±0 K/D spread are white; for the ratio map, regions of 1.0 K/D ratio are white.
As always, let us know what you think of these new heat maps. Remember, these are just v0.2. There’s so much more we want to do, and there’s a lot of room for potential tweaks. If you don’t like something about these, we’d really appreciate your feedback. Our number one goal is making sure the users find the information presented on our site useful. If they don’t, we’re not doing our jobs right.
