Season XXXIII Template selection: 7/19/2018 01:24:08

Following the success of the selection of Biomes as the template for Season XXXII, the template for Season XXXIII will be chosen in the same manner.

The process will the same as last time and is broken into three phases.
Phase 1 - The community can nominate templates for the seasonal.
Phase 2 - The template panel will prune the submissions down to a small number.
Phase 3 - Anyone who has completed all 20 games in any one of the last 3 seasonals (Season XXX onwards) will be allowed to vote (no alts). We will resolve votes using the Dowdall system- https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Borda_count#Dowdall_system_(Nauru)

Please consider the following while submitting templates in Phase 1:
  • Quality of template
  • Finish in a reasonable amount of time
  • Diversity of settings (WR/SR, MA, fog levels, armies per territory, income cap etc.)
  • Diversity of maps
  • Diversity across seasons (i.e. don't repeat previous seasons)
Deadlines
Phase 1 - 21st July, 2018
Phase 2 - 25th July, 2018
Phase 3 - 31st July, 2018

Let's pick a great template for Season XXXIII. I hope everyone participates in this process and we can have a good season! Please nominate templates on this thread by providing a link to a finished game with the exact settings.

From the last template selection thread:


How about our very first diplomacy Seasonal? There's a lot of players that don't participate in the Seasonal since it's always been strategy-only- why not include them just this one time?

I propose this template: https://www.warzone.com/MultiPlayer?GameID=5579450 (23 turns)

Decent quality, finishes reasonably quicky, and should score more diversity points than any other template anyone's ever proposed for a seasonal.

About seasonals in general:

Template election process

I favor a voting system that lets players vote that played one of the last two seasons in full. The argument
here is that seasonal is supposed to challenge you to play new templates, so the players who take on that
challenge should be rewarded, they are also anyways the ones who really care.
N should not be 1 since this could lead to an ongoing reduction of votes.
As for this initial vote I agree on being more lenient.

ideas opposed to a panel/ in addition

Another idea would be to give away/ award seasonals to a curator. Lets say player A has been helpful he can
then receive a scheduled slot for his template of a choice. This should obviously be framed by the same rules
/regulations a template panel would have to abide.
=> interest of the community as a whole
=> playability
Another plus point here would be that the curator could write an introduction to his template, make some polls
as what to choose, who will win etc, basically engage the community.
=> Fizzer/template panel could get a veto to keep egos in check/ enforce legit templates
=> Generally being said a curator should be able to properly articulate why his template should be played and
why its going to be fun.

On the timing

Seasonal templates should be lined up. At least the next seasonal should be already decided when a new
seasonal starts. AND seasonals shouldnt force finish. If seasonals are lined up giving the time to let a
seasonal run out will have less of an impact. In my view a force finished seasonal is way more unsatisfactory
than waiting an extra week or two on the end results. There should be no incentive for underhand tactics.
As reference you can take a look at JVs seasonal or Mikes rant on vacations.
In case of this seasonal one way would be to set up a vote for next seasonal after 15 games, everyone who
played 15 games then is allowed to vote.
Let me repeat, seasonals shouldnt force finish, this is unsatisfactory.

The curator


A curator doesnt own the venue, but has the ability to bring life to it.
He enforces deadlines, brings together a process and or team to determine templates, at the end of the day this is someone who shoulders the responsibility to bring the next seasonal to us at the right time.

Curator S33 = Beren
Curator S32 = Deadman
Curator S1-31 = Fizzer

I think there is more than one good way to create a good seasonal, and it would be very nice to have punctual seasonals. Many players enjoy them, and they regularly get neglected.

To achieve this you can either institutionalise the process or personalify it.

I've noted all templates added up until now. Please don't edit posts to add more templates, as I will not be checking older posts closely and they may be missed.

I think it's still before deadline? Usually when you write like "deadline: 21st July", 21st July is included too.

this is not related to the seasonal ladder but I am wondering if Fizzer would also allow that the community votes for new rt-ladder templates? Just like we vote for seasonal ladder templates.

The community can vote on the seasonal template (Phase 3) from the list below:

British Raj                                  https://www.warzone.com/multiplayer?GameID=15920032
Eastern Kingdoms MA+LD                       https://www.warzone.com/MultiPlayer?GameID=15415472
Macedonia No-Split                           https://www.warzone.com/MultiPlayer?GameID=15923176
Volcano Island                               https://www.warzone.com/MultiPlayer?GameID=16020030

As mentioned earlier, we will be using the Dowdall system to resolve votes. Anyone who has completed all 20 games in any one of the last three seasonals (Season XXX onwards) is eligible to vote. Please order all the templates as per your preference (1 is most preferred, 4 is least). If you don't list all of the templates, your vote will be ignored. Also include a valid ladder team link.
Votes can be submitted in this thread, but do not edit your votes after the deadline, as they will be ignored.

Example
  1 British Raj
  2 Eastern Kingdoms MA+LD
  3 Macedonia No-Split
  4 Volcano Island
  
  https://www.warzone.com/LadderTeam?LadderTeamID=18621
Since the templates have been made public later than originally planned, voting will close on July 31st, 2018. All votes will be made public after the voting closes.
