Ill start a new thread, this is my second post on the forum, so feel free to tell me where should i put this post.


i found out that good number of territories for map of the week settings is anithing less than 300. With big maps such as we have this week, ppl lose the interest to them after a few games, coz it takes too long to play every game. After all only unexperienced players play them and this makes things even worse.

I dont know, why do ppl vote for big maps, but i am sure, that fizzer has stats that can prove my point.

Good map of the week example was Renaissance Italy(150 big) when ppl even stoped playing RoR maps and everyone switched to the MotW games.

Possible solution to this could be
1. different settings for bigger maps, like more players, or less neutals and so on.
2. territory limit for the map included to the voting list
3. adding more Map of the Week voting, like there could be voting for the big map (>700 territory), for the midrange(300-700), and for the smaller(<300) all of them having different settings.

What do you think guys?

Most players vote for the maps, they like the most in general, ignoring the fact, that there is a map of the week template afterwards. In my opinion the template is rather an opportunity to introduce famous maps to a bigger audience.

I voted for the Europe population density map. I find it to be pretty enjoyable. That being said, it is pretty rushed in Real-Time. Maybe there should be some formula to increase the amount of time for the MOTW if it exceeds a certain amount of territories?

Big maps are almost a necessity in multi-day diplomacy games.

Good point Ranek. But i found that it is also fun to play auto game, coz it can be a relatively rare map with lots of good players researching it in a short amount of time. If i create a rare map myself, most of the players dont understand how to play on it.

zxctycxz, how is your post related to my question?)
