Hopefully Fizzer will take a break from local deployment... I like it but I feel like two seasons of it are enough (like with the randomized bonuses). I'm also hoping for a map other than medium earth.
Angle Lust (formerly Nich) did an interesting template in this tournament: http://warlight.net/MultiPlayer?TournamentID=7154
, in particular:
Random Cities Distribution
Armies per neutral (non distribution): 10
Wasteland size: 2
By swapping wastelands and neutrals, you can get some interesting map layouts.
I also wonder if Fizzer might try a season of cities distribution like the old days I hear about, but it may be unpopular, most of us play warlords these days.
A random teams ladder could be cool!
Just some ideas~
