With how the point farming lottery games have been clogging up the Open Games page, I decided to take a look at what other maps we could expect to see take centre stage if they eventually get bored with the current map

http://warlight.net/Map?ID=5 21 territories (therefore possibility of 21 players)
Is perfect for them getting a win for the lucky "winner" in one turn, with 8 more players than their current map - I even went as far as making them a template they can abuse us with for it's ugliness. (also because it's the only one of the maps I found that I could put enough players in)

There's also these maps which could host more slots and have at least one territory which by itself is a bonus they could change the value of, but would need them to put on Multiattack to get the game over and done with straight away. (but they're doing that currently anyway)

http://warlight.net/Map?ID=24995 26 territories
http://warlight.net/Map?ID=10910 27 territories
http://warlight.net/Map?ID=24303 31 territories
http://warlight.net/Map?ID=7998 36 territories
http://warlight.net/Map?ID=3187 37 territories
http://warlight.net/Map?ID=6196 38 territories

There weren't any with exactly 40 that met what I believe their farming criteria would be (as someone would have to attack to get a bonus) - but there were at least 2 which have 41 which can be manipluated - say manual distrubution, with your lottery ticket being putting the bonus with the changed value as your first pick. (or hoping that someone gets it with auto distribution) - but these would be probably too much effort for farmers of the sort.

Anyway the point of me doing this (besides not actually having one, just avoiding looking at all the games on the game map with the same broken settings (I wouldn't care as much if they just took a couple of turns for the person with the winning bonus to win, but they want it all done asap)) is to want these maps changed or removed, but as I'm saying that I also realise that it wouldn't stop them, as larger maps where everyone gets two territories would give the same effect.

End 1 territory bonuses!

oh okay? so you want to remove the mapmaker's hard work just because you dont like games on their maps cloggging up your open games?

How selfish...
