FK's bad 1v1 map award!: 8/1/2015 03:28:10

Maybe once a month, maybe never again, I shall nominate a map for the honor of "Worst 1v1 Map"! The requirements for earning the title:

No template on this map should ever be playable, enjoyable or strategic for 1v1 games. Even the thought of playing the map 1v1 should give you headaches and spinal trauma.

The first map to get this honor is...

The Continent - Early Colonial War!
https://www.warlight.net/Map/6121-Continent-Early-Colonial-War


Just look at it. If someone would set up an enjoyable strategic 1v1 template on that, then .... I would worship that person as a god.

It could be done. Depends on the template.

It could not be done easily.

Can we qualify this so we don't end up with absolutely tiny maps?

I amn't a mapmaker so correct me if I'm wrong..

Think about it? If your a mapmaker you have an idea.. You decide to make a map.. You do it taking vast amounts of your time.. You finish it and give it colour to give it eye-catching detail.. Your happy with yourself that you've completed a map. Than you go onto the forums and find out that it's nominated for worst map of the month..

Even if a map-maker does make the most horrible of maps they shouldn't be abused or given publicism like this thread for how bad it is.. They should be praised.. For devoting their time making a map for all of us to play.. They get no benefits..

So.. In conclusion map-makers should be praised and not be given threads like this discouraging map-making

Map-makers should be encouraged to make more maps and not discouraged with threads like these..

No disrespect intended to the map's author.

Many maps are beautiful in their own right, and serve to fill a hole in the world that would exist without them. Many maps are works of art; in that case, their form outweighs their functional use.

I made up this award not to insult a map or its author, but to poke fun at maps that were obviously never designed with 1v1 intended ^_^

I'm pretty positive not everyone makes the maps exclusively for 1v1 games...

...Though I have to agree just seeing this map got me a headache. I can't see any practical use for that map - not 1v1s, not ffas, not team games, not even diplos. :I

It's very well drawn and has an amazing lore though.

That's bull and you know it. If you really did not mean any disrespect, you would have used a title such as "maps which are unsuitable for 1vs1 play", not mention the word "bad" anywhere and probably include something along the lines of "while this might be a nice map for team vs team ...".

More to the point, you probably wouldn't have made this thread at all.

Also, what Platinum said (https://www.warlight.net/Forum/102427-fks-bad-1v1-map-award?Offset=6).

I understand, FK. You're just saying that map would be one of the worst 1v1 maps out there. I would enjoy playing maybe a 6v6 or something on it.

On the map page, it says it's RPG style play. Diplomacy/Rp purposes. Makes sense.

I disagree. I can't see that being used in a fun diplomacy. The map is all around the same literally everywhere, income mechanics are weird and unpredictable, the map gives me seizures upon seeing it and has a serioous chokepoint factor, meaning the winner is whoever the hell has the most abandon and bomb cards.
