Seriously. I mean usually I prefer crowded maps but having to make 24 picks every game is insane, especially when there are only 32 possible start points. Should be 2 spots maximum.

Anyway, see you bozos in Europe.

How is it "best?" It's too crowded. Plus, with that many picks it's basically down to luck as far as getting territories you want or not.

Judging by your strategic insight I'm sure you'll do well on the ladder.

He also thinks rise of rome 8 players with 1 pick each is a great template. So don't put too much stock in it.

My advise...play the ladder and you will learn why.

If you can beat this team in a game I think you should be able to decide what settings the 3v3 ladder should be.

As someone who hates clumpy maps and supports double-picking in big team games, I say two is enough :(

If you don't like being on top of each other, don't play the ladder. But 2 picks would make the ladder terrible. It would just be like the current 2v2 ladder, which is rotten compared to the old 2v2 ladder.

It is just a different game IMO. It is about prioritizing some spots, countering others. Much of the game is decided on picks. If you played it like Strat ME (distribution wise), then you'd have about the same % of the bonuses picked (ignoring the 0 bonuses on ME)...but you'd have a lower percentage of the map actually covered since EU has many more territories.

Also, without the gift card that Strat 2v2 has, you'd have a big problem with 2 picks each and someone getting completely hosed right off the bat.

If it is not your style, so be it. But it is the better way to play it.

Nah chris is wrong on this one I agree with Queef. The 2 vs 2 ladder is fine btw.

lol it is not,2v2 ladder should require more picks. and most of the player think so.

fortunately 3v3 eu ladder is good on setting, 4 picks allow perfect coverage

The only problems I have with the 2v2 ladder are that it's 16%WR when it should be 0%SR, and the fact that final earth has gotta be one of the worst maps on the entire site.

But my point with the 3v3 is if you're gonna have 24/32 spots get chosen in total, just save everyone a lot of trouble and make it auto distribution. I don't think it would make much of a difference.

Haha are you kidding Queef? I honestly wish that this is a joke - but I fear it isn't... I'm not sure you understand that even though there are 24 picks taken on the map out of the 32 bonuses - there is so much strategy to do with being able to pick well, have presence in the whole map, have some "safe" bounses. Balancing expansion vs fighting and having 4 different borders across the maps with only 5 base income. Please don't tell me that picking is the same as having auto distribution...

no one's forcing you to make 24 picks,you're good to go with just 4
the fact that you believe you need to make 24 picks itelf says that you don't want random picks
and thinking a little for winning games is no big deal,if you just want to hve fun don't complain that your opponents make 24 picks,we just like to make more than 4 picks cause its no fun for us to make only 4 pick and play blindly

Yeah, I agree Ryiro. Prove us all wrong. Just pick 4, let the rest auto pick, then proceed to get trounced on the ladder :)
