What is the probability of getting a Coldwind farm map?

I keep getting Rancid Abattoir when I play killer and I hate it because of all the corn making it hard to see survivors and their scratch marks and the many strong loops ... it's a very survivor sided map. For some reason I get it much more when I play Clown. Guess it's karma for when I used map offerings to go there as a survivor.

    Any Coldwind Farm map? 10.65%, as they're 5/47 maps in the game. Assuming the game rolls directly for map, if it rolls for realm first it's 5% like any other realm as it's 1/20 realms in the game.

    A particular one like Rancid Abbatoir in particular? Assuming the game rolls directly for map and not realm first and then map, ~2.13%, as that's 1/47 maps in the game.

    Assuming the game rolls for realm first and then map. 1/20 realms in the game followed by 1/5 maps in that realm, 0.05*0.2 = 0.01 = 1%

    All of this assumes there's no boosted pickrates in play of course.

    If I'm not mistaken every realm has an equal chance to be picked. With 20 realms currently in the game that is a 5% chance to get any Coldwind map. With 5 Coldwind maps, that means you have a chance of 20% of 5% = 1% to get any one Coldwind map in particular.

    If I remember correctly, I heard somewhere that the game chooses a realm first when deciding what map to have everyone go to. Meaning there’s just as likely a chance to go to a map like The Game which is the only map in its realm (Gideon Meat Plant), than it is to play on any of the 5 Coldwind maps combined.

    After it chooses a realm, it chooses a map. So again, for something like Gideon Meat Plant, it’s a 100% chance you go to The Game as it’s the only map in that realm. For something like Coldwind Farm, it’s a 20% toss up between the 5 different maps.

    I assume now that the game has recently introduced variations (so far only in Macmillan), now there’s a third factor after it chooses the map if it has Variation A or Variation B (50/50)
