Hello!

Every week we vote on 5 maps, and the map with the most votes becomes the map of the week for the following week.

Go here to vote: https://www.WarLight.net/MapOfTheWeek/View?Week=134

You can use this thread to discuss the current vote. Tell us why you voted the way you did!

Oh my Fizzer, who nominated the Squiggles map? Well, atleast we can get rid of it already, so it won't bother us in future Map of the Weeks. Voting for Star Wars.

Voting for Halest Marl.

Please, for the love of God, don't vote for Squiggles. Or mine for that matter, it's really shitty.

Did you actually put a map that was 95% plagiarized in the Map of the Week voting?

Please don't. It's a completely unoriginal mirror image of https://www.warlight.net/Map/16045-Tale-Four-Cities. He doesn't deserve any sort of recognition for it.

guys, it's Map of the Week, noone really cares about it. might as well vote for the "squiggle" map just to get it off the picks permanently, as that's how MOTW works.

Furthermore, it's a pretty transformative map if you're not playing only custom scenarios on the four cities map. It picked out only a part of it, which totally tweaks the gameplay of the map.

Edit: more clear voting on "morals" and on "mapmakers" rather than the map itself.

"Fuck 1416

Voting for Star Wars because Clint doesn't want people voting for his."

Plagiarism aside, 1416's map is entirely too large for a 4 person FFA. Even if it does play decently, it needs different settings. It is a terrible fit for MotW.

(in all seriousness I think 250-400 territories is the ideal size for a 4 player FFA.)

Love it how much interest this week receives only because Squiggles' map is on it. Also funny how people who state they vote for it, get downvoted. I personally don't find it okay. It's olkay if you downvote Tabby's racism or some Nazis on the forum, but MotW is just an innocent competition.

It also gets off the list if it lands on the 3rd, 4th or 5th place. So for Fizzer's sake, dont vote for it, please.

Ya, but I'm sure there have been very beautiful, colossal maps that wouldn't fit under MOTW settings that have been voted in (zxctycxz's maps?)

And those maps were not given their due.

Not every map works with the settings employed by Map of the Week. In fact, many maps suffer greatly. This does not make them bad maps, but it does make them bad auto-games.

I personally believe that being a bad auto-game is reason enough to deny a map MotW honors. I recognize that others may not share this opinion. I do not know who is right, because I do not know the true intent behind this honor.

I play it now and then when I do play. Half the time the maps are just awful for 4 person FFA though. That's kind of a flaw with the format though, you can't really just vote for the best map, they have to also be good for 4 person FFA if you want to play them on the template which is kinda disingenuous to the whole thing.

In terms of play-ability I prefer maps that are in the 150-250 territory range.

I'm not alone, btw. I notice that maps that win the voting that meet this criteria get played far more than the others during the week.

Ergo, I'm voting for the Star Wars Galaxy map this time and looking forward to clobbering you guys! ;)

I'd argue that they deserve a better honor.

I wouldn't want someone to form a bad opinion of a map because they conflated the map itself with the real issue, the settings.
