I would love to see how Fizzer would set up the map of the week. Doing lotto? Or a 'wait for the other to be booted' kinda game?. Come on - Give it a go Fizz!

I guess it will be 4 players. No-luck cyclic,but the „first turn“ is the order of joining. First and Second joined get a place. And it will be „wait for the other to be noob or get booted“ game.

Fizzer,thoughs?

i wouldn't be surprised if he hasn't even noticed that duel won and the game isn't being made. (just because you can't make a game with less starting points then players)

Basing my opinion on the results of the previous week it's already defined that Africa Big would win for week 40. Duel didn't surprisingly overwhelm the voting but stayed at a decent score for winning, marking a prestigous interesting spot for AB to win.

However I didn't vote for Africa Big this time because I don't like the mapmaker at all. His name is Belgian Gentleman. He's like an unserious dude with some weird hidden irony nobody guesses and then he tries to get attention to himself by writing this post. pff what a douchebag.

Belgian Gentleman, you must come from a country of unwashed fopdoodles, commenting on a voting thread that features your own map.

Yup, it is NOT a 1v1. it is a 2 player FFA.

Duel?
I cannot disagree more. Great strategic play gets yet way less rewarded in FFA, because of the diplomatic aspect where those who can't get what FFA means end up teaming all long. You want to make warlight a no-brainer game? 4 players FFA auto-game are one of the main games relatively new players join, and having the duel map is 1. killing the idea of 4 players FFA games, where these relatively new players tend to appreciate the high variance, 2. representing warligth as a ''let's see who get's booted first'' or ''let's see who makes the dumb attack move because he's tired'', 3. encouraging the players to play lotto games. Fizzer, do you really believe this is coherent with the idea of ''warlight as a skill game''? Because I really, really don't.

That said, I really appreciate the map-of-the-week feature, and nice options this week, as often.

MindPalace, I don't think Fizzer would vote for Duel himself. People picked the map 1) as an anti-vote against the selections for map of the week 2) for the heck of it. So no, it's not coherent with Warlight as a skill game, but it is coherent with how the community is at the same time very quick to make demands and are on the other hand the cause of all the dumb content. Let's remember that one weird time duel was voted for map of the week with a stupid grin and carry on.

I think people picked Duel to expose the weaknesses of map of the week games, that is it always uses the same set of settings for any kinds of maps. However one size does not fit all. Some map of the week games are very bad due to wrong settings.

Fizzer had to manually adjust the settings to make it work this time.

In this point i need to agree with fizzer. He has other things to do than implement every week another template on a map.

Better fix the rt ladder templates as well as the 2vs2 ladder template. Then the effort would have an impact. Also BRING THE OLD 1VS1 LADDER BACK!

In this case he should cancel map of the weeks. :P It is not 100% automatic. There is still some work behind. Duel gave him a headache and he had to spend time to fix it. Cancel them. No more workload.

But seriously it's not that you must set each template for each specific map. A good way to improve it is you make a set of templates, and you apply a template based on the size of the map. It can be done automatically.

Really do you think it is a good idea to apply the same template to a very big map, and a small map? We are creating auto games which suck like hell sometimes. The map may be great, but the template completely ruins it. Players are getting really bad experience. You can't just leave them behind.

If he does not bother, I would suggest removing the auto games. You can keep the voting part, but remove the playing part.

Better fix the rt ladder templates as well as the 2vs2 ladder template.


I agree. Easy fixes. It is not that it takes much time to update the ladders.
