XDefiant’s confusing UI makes players miss the Map Vote system

XDefiant is still in its growing phase as players flock from all kinds of FPS games to gauge if this title can match the big dogs. However, they get off to a bad start when players don’t realize that XDefiant has a map voting system hidden in its UI.

Reddit user shpooples_ jumped on the XDefiant subreddit to give the playerbase a little PSA: showing that this FPS has a map veto system to the surprise of many. They specifically bring up the point that this voting system is unfortunately hidden in XDefiant’s cluttered UI. Between the lobby, the Battle Pass, Loadouts, the active booster and even the news feed, it’s no wonder players are missing this crucial option.

A large majority of users in the thread express their surprise, saying, “I never even noticed!” or “Okay, now I know map voting exists in this game.” A third voice even sounded in disbelief: “IT’S MAP VOTING?!!”

Even I was surprised to read that XDefiant had such a great user experience addition. Being able to choose our maps and avoid the horrible ones was an afterthought for most FPS games. It’s refreshing that a standard “I shoot you, you shoot me” shooter brings back the ability to play the best maps. However, it’s also unfortunate that Ubisoft missed such a crucial and obvious thing: the UI.

The User Interface of any game is paramount to a player’s experience and often leads to confusion, misinformation or even missing mechanics altogether. It is Ubisoft’s job to ensure that all relevant information is offered to players without being overwhelming or completely forgettable. The devs have some room to grow in these areas.

One user (Ryctre) jumped into the conversation to add some clarity, saying, “There is no map voting in the welcome lobby. So everyone just learning about it is probably still there. But yeah, no one is voting on maps or thumbs up. teammates at the end of the game, so they should probably increase the visibility a little bit.” This may explain why some players don’t see the option for their initial experience, but it doesn’t excuse the fact that the option itself is very inconspicuous.
