Season XLI Template Selection: 6/19/2020 03:39:51

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

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 XXXVIII 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 - 29th June 2020
Phase 2 - 7th July 2020
Phase 3 - 15th July 2020

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 XLI. 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.

If the template you want to suggest has already been rejected multiple times, it will be rejected again so don't bother.
For example, Archipelago Brawl is never going to happen.

The community can vote on the seasonal template (Phase 3) from the list below:
British Raj                       https://www.warzone.com/MultiPlayer?GameID=22033014
Malvia                            https://www.warzone.com/MultiPlayer?GameID=21449334
Unicorn Island                    https://www.warzone.com/MultiPlayer?GameID=21707179
Yin'angzhou                       https://www.warzone.com/MultiPlayer?GameID=21442582
Yorkshire Brawl                   https://www.warzone.com/MultiPlayer?GameID=22830120

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 XXXVIII onward) is eligible to vote. Please order all the templates as per your preference (1 is most preferred, 5 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 20th, 2020.
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.

Example:
Subject: Season XLI Template Votes
1 British Raj
2 Malvia
3 Unicorn Island
4 Yin'angzhou
5 Yorkshire Brawl
