Season XXXIV Template selection: 9/30/2018 17:52:35

The last games of Season XXXIII have been created, so it is time for us to start thinking about the template on which we will play Season XXXIV.

The template will be selected following the same process inaugurated in Season XXXII and continued in Season XXXIII. As a reminder, this processs is broken into three phases as detailed below.
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 XXXI 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 - 15th October, 2018
Phase 2 - 22nd October, 2018
Phase 3 - 26th October, 2018

There are over two weeks until the template submission deadline, so if you are working on a template or have a new and largely unplayed template that you would like to submit make sure you have tested it extensively with many test games, ideally with players who have experience creating or testing strategic templates as those are the types of people that make up the template panel. For new templates it might also help your case to post multiple several games to help the panel get a better sense of how the template plays.

Let's pick a great template for Season XXXIV. 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.

There is one more week to propose templates. I hope we get a few more submissions. The more submissions we get the better selection of templates the panel can put up for the vote.

He would have to remove his underwear then.
MoD might be disappointed.

I think Lebanese Attrition could well be a better army cap template than Georgia, and that is a good opportunity to give it a wider visibility.

To Farah:

Thank you for pointing that out.

To general public:

It´s obvious though, which templates I have chosen. Therefore I will leave it like that without finding a game link. If a formalistic approach is applied and templates suggested by me are not validly nominated..well whatever, I don´t really care that much. :)

We could at the same time say, that I haven´t finished 20 games in a season yet and therefore I am not even eligible to nominate anything.

Nope, we couldn't. That makes you ineligible for voting, not nominating. There's no condition mentioned for proposing a template.

I'd prefer a template that doens't require me to play in ujs, but i love the template krzystof proposed because it is a hell of a lot of fun picking your opponents picks :D

Tbh, I am unsure if we have ever done a seasonal with differing kill rates. Maybe different luck percentages, and lots of other cool settings, but I would love for a template that goes against the SR memorization game some of our templates have become, so I like NoMercy's suggestion a lot as well.

I will suggest an improved version of the Imp Romanum 35/85 because I feel that template is a tad broken (with the cities, and the near-full dist). Gotta make teh template first :)

edit: i also like tainO's template a lot, it is very brawly and is good fun. the map is a little too chokey for my taste and the 1 bonus is much too over powered. but a good time, for sure, check it out!

@NoMercy, Krzychu is correct, there is no requirement for people to have competed in past seasons to nominate templates - that is only for voting. And as others have mentioned, we will be ignoring all submissions that don't include a valid game link, so if you are serious about wanting those templates to be considered, I'd suggest you follow the required format.

All template above this post have been noted. Please let me know if I have missed any. I haven't included those that were submitted without a valid game link.

Another date to add to the profile for NoMercy, when he told the Season XXXIV Template selection to basically go fuck themselves he'll do what he wants!
