Season XXXVII Template selection: 7/3/2019 19:11:13

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

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 XXXIV 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 - 12th July 2019
Phase 2 - 22nd July 2019
Phase 3 - 29th July 2019

There are nearly 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 XXXVII. 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.

Hi,
I would like to propose a rather uncommon template, which is - in my opinion - very strategic and involves the commerce option using reduced house building costs.

https://www.warzone.com/MultiPlayer?GameID=16056999

Last year I used to play some coin games using this template and experienced very interesting games during that time.
Although the bonus distribution is very unbalanced, the strategic component isnt hampered due to the rather huge amount of wastelands. This opens room for different strategies: Either heading for free bonuses or securing isolated places to safely build income houses.

Next, the commander must be used wisely. It could be better to hide him or one might want to use him for more aggressive expansion (or maybe for wasteland destruction), which also dictates the picking process.

I really think that template would satisfy the high demands of a seasonal. I can provide more past games if needed.


Greetings to All,
Apprentice for President!

Now that mods can be used in tournaments, can be they used in the seasonal too? If so, I nominate lombardy swap.

Just so everyone is aware, mods are still not supported on the seasonal ladder.

If Battle Islands V MA is an option then I suggest the MDL version of it.

https://www.warzone.com/MultiPlayer?GameID=18835396

It has cyclic move, bigger wastelands and an OP card.

Gotham is nice!
Cowboy sucks, he don't like airlift, multi-attack, no split, emergency blockade and army cap together.

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

Australia		https://www.warzone.com/MultiPlayer?GameID=18302147
Earthsea		https://www.warzone.com/MultiPlayer?GameID=18986703
MA Battle Islands V	https://www.warzone.com/MultiPlayer?GameID=18835396
Olympus Cat Fight       https://www.warzone.com/MultiPlayer?GameID=18372337

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 XXXIV 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 link to your ladder team's games page. Make sure to link the ladder games page not the team page, as this makes it easier to verify that 20 games were played.
Voting will close on Monday, July 29th, 2019.
All votes will be made public after the voting closes.
Votes can be submitted by sending a Warzone Mail to this account. Do not edit your message after the deadline or it may be ignored.

  • Archipelago Brawl: The first pick is overpowered as it both grants +1 and combos with another ftb. The template also has some other balance issues.
  • Battle of the Pig:This is not a strategic template.
  • Belarus: This is an enjoyable WR template, but ultimately it was decided that there is too much reliance on leftovers luck for the seasonal.
  • Desert Island Commerce: This was a hard omission. The panel really liked the concept of Commerce + LD, and would love for this to be represented in a future season, but this template didn't seem quite polished enough and had enough flaws that we decided not to waste a good concept on a template that wasn't quite there yet. If the submitter would like feedback and help improving it, there was interest in helping with that.
  • Gotham City: The primary objection to this template boils down to the cards. There are too many and it leads to messy situations. The emergency blockade card in particular drew significant criticism.
  • Potato Tradewars: The template is on a very big map and tends to result in huge incomes and long games.
  • World of Warhammer: It was decided that Australia was a better 0% SR template.
