Season XLIII Template Selection: 12/31/2020 02:48:27

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

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 XL 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 - Monday, January 11th, 2021
  • Phase 2 - Monday, January 18th, 2021
  • Phase 3 - Monday, January 25th, 2021
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 XLIII. 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.

According to my MTL survey, Phobia is the most popular template that wasn't a seasonal yet, so here we go:

The community can vote on the seasonal template (Phase 3) from the list below:
Great Lakes                    https://www.warzone.com/MultiPlayer?GameID=25193910
Phobia SR                      https://www.warzone.com/MultiPlayer?GameID=14174994
Phobia WR                      https://www.warzone.com/MultiPlayer?GameID=23917922

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 XL 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, February 1st, 2021.
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 XLIII Template Votes
1 Great Lakes
2 Phobia SR
3 Phobia WR

A big thanks to everyone who voted. We used the Dowdall system to resolve votes. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Borda_count#Dowdall_system_(Nauru)

The next seasonal template will be Great Lakes (https://www.warzone.com/MultiPlayer?GameID=25193910) in a landslide, having received over half of the first place votes. Phobia SR was slightly preferred to Phobia WR.

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 by posting in this thread in the next 24 hours. You can view all the votes here - http://bit.ly/2vmhRH8

Voting Results:
Great Lakes     15.83
Phobia SR        9.50
Phobia WR        9.42
