I think Season 6 ended about 3 days ago. So when does Season 7 start and what settings will be used? I personally think Imperium Romanum 1v1 with Gui's settings, or Turkey 1v1 would be fun. They both get away from Medium Earth and still has good strategic settings that offer many different styles of play.
I was also wondering about a 2v2 Seasonal Ladder. That could be very nice as well as long as there are good settings with it.
guiroma would be nice
i really enjoy the map and it's time it got some recogniton.
not to mention i just got an 8 winning streak (not yet broken) with high seat prerequisites and i beat huruey and dunga on it XD
I personally think those settings won't be good at all. The map is way too big and the games will be way too long for my taste. I will try the open tournament and see what I think. But I doubt I play Season 7.
Maybe try Guiroma for Season 8. A lot of people like it and it is very good strategic settings but is not used as much as Medium Earth.
Ironheart, Guiroma is Imperium Romanum with the settings Gui made up. Basically, it is random warlords distribution with 4 territories and the 1 territory bonuses are worth 0. The luck percentage is where 3v2's always work but where there is a little bit of luck still in the game so it is not all calculating. It is very good settings.
I hate the settings tbh. It could be worse but it is completely pointless expansion and attacking, there is little strategy involved. It is just no fun for me. I think Guiroma would have been a lot better. I hope Fizzer listens to the majority, and goes with Guiroma next season (unless we find a new favorite template by then).
The problem with them is not that the expansion isn't good. It's when two good plaeyrs meet and they both have about 20 income. Those games will always be long and drawn out and I hate those kinds of games. That's the reason I don't like the settings.
Yes, the problem with Heavy Earth is that there are too many twos, so those bonuses will only be picked as counters. But I don't agree with you, JSA, because there are not as many chokepoints in Heavy Earth as Medium Earth, so it's less likely that there will be stalemates. And I'm also glad that Alaska and East Russia are finally getting some use.
