This is a follow-up to the voting thread on the real time ladder here: http://warlight.net/Forum/Thread?ThreadID=36176

The results are in!

The two lowest-voted existing templates were the 4-player FFA and the auto-distribution templates. These two will be removed.

In their place, the two highest non-existing templates are being added: Guiroma and Strategic Greece.

The changes take effect immediately.

We'll let this run for a while and do another poll that keeps swapping out templates.

Thanks to everyone that voted!

While I think taking out the FFA and auto-distribution templates was a good idea, I agree with Tim on the rest. It would be nice to keep adding more templates if possible.

Agreed. I'd prefer only the disliked templates to be removed (which I think is done now) then just continue to add templates and not remove any more.

the season I and II also might have been disliked as well and I personally think that the autodistribution was a nice template to show how well you do if you really need to improvise for what your tactic will be while with the other templates you already should have a small tactic in your mind and a view about where your opponent would be at that point

I think the next update should lose the first two season's templates and from there only add popular templates.

cool update.

imho the "usability" of playing the realtime ladder still needs to be sorted though, i speak for myself that i would play it a lot more if i didn't have to keep 2 warlight tabs open (to be able to quickly join and leave at will) and keep refreshing "your games" page hoping for a new game to pop up sometime soon when i only want to do a quick game. and if it's annoying on desktop i can only wonder on mobile.

Useful thing to note, games are created every 5 minutes (i.e. 14:00, 14:05, 14:10, etc) so you only have to refresh after the 5 minute mark.

Light fog is kinda annoying, but not to the degree that I'd vote it out. Other than that, maybe take one out and add 2 in every update? I suppose that's a good way to keep the ladder from becoming bloated with templates, while adding enough to keep players satisfied.

An idea came up in my game with Panda:
http://warlight.net/MultiPlayer?GameID=5990597

This game almost forced us to make similar/same picks and was basically decided on 1st pick, regardless of how pick #6 could have been changed. Anyway I proposed an opportunity to "reshuffle" board if both players agree to. By reshuffling I mean generating another map with same settings, so that players can get a less luck-based board. My question is, would it even be technically possible? I do believe that could change a lot of the games that are focused too much on first turn bonuses.
