Season XXXV Template selection: 12/31/2018 04:51:02

Season XXXIV is drawing to a close, so it is time for us to start thinking about the template on which we will play Season XXXV.

The template will be selected following the same process used in the past three seasons. As a reminder, this process 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 XXXII 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 - 16th January 2019
Phase 2 - 24rd January 2019
Phase 3 - 28th January 2019

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 XXXV. 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.
Thread for Season XXXIV
https://www.warzone.com/Forum/318183-season-xxxiv-template-selection
Phase 1
The community has nominated these templates:
  • Randomized Strat ME
  • British Raj
  • Lombardy Swap
  • Hannibal with Diplo Card
  • Hannibal at the Gates
  • Lucky RoR
  • Fast Earth
  • Phobia WR
  • Black Sea Swapped Picks + Bomb
  • Imperium Romanum 1v1 Ltd. Distribution
  • Island of Ruins
  • Plagues of Egypt

Templates for Phase 2
  • British Raj
  • Hannibal at the Gates
  • Island of Ruins
  • Lombardy Swap

Final Results
The next seasonal template was initiall voted to be Lombardy Swap. However, mods are not currently available on the Seasonal Ladder, so the template for Season XXXV will actually be Hannibal at the Gates
Example game - https://www.warzone.com/MultiPlayer?GameID=17513723

I would also ask for someone who is willing to cross-check the votes that were submitted to ensure I did not make any errors and also note that my vote is the first one in and wasn't edited at all (so I could not have altered my vote after having seen the results).

If your vote appears to have been counted incorrectly or if it wasn't counted and you think it should have been, please let us know in the next 24 hours. You can view all the votes here - http://bit.ly/2vmhRH8

Results:
Hannibal at the Gates    12.17
British Raj               8.50
Island of Ruins           6.50

Have someone selected by Fizzer to create rules who then selectively follows the rules enforced upon them as they see fit to most benefit them.

Clan league and the general ladder rules to which i'm guessing you're referring are two completely different subjects. Beren has always been a great community member and him doing something in CL that wasn't allowed doesn't negate that fact.

Sure, happy new year to you too, Nauz.

I would like to submit Randomized Strat ME, if it is technically compliant with the seasonal ladder.

So Beren's rigging the ladder so he gets first every season? OK Nauz.

Not to mention the method used here is visible and checkable. Its impossible for him to 'cheat' the results.

Sorry about that.

I guess I shall nominate British Raj then, if I want an interesting WR template.

@Nauz, you are more than welcome to express your concerns about how the ladder is run and by whom. I would just appreciate it if you would please do so in a separate thread, since this thread has a specific purpose, which you are derailing. Thanks in advance.

I nominate Hannibal with Diplo Card.

(I also would like to ask if anyone could suggest something with the bomb card. It'd be good.)

Since we haven't gotten very many submissions, I am going to leave Phase 1 open for 24 hours from this post. Please submit any templates you think are deserving of being played in the seasonal ladder.
