Sometime in the last 24 hours, Lionheart's map Small Earth Board Map went from looking like this:

to looking like this, with the border colors changed (North America now red, Africa now green):

The mapmaker, Lionheart, say this was not the result of a normal map update:

The map preview (https://www.warzone.com/SinglePlayer?PreviewMap=70306) now shows the new map, and you get the new map if you create a game with Small Earth Board Map or look at a recent game with Small Earth Board Map. If not Lionheart, then who could've made this change?

What happened? And why were the colors flipped? Can we expect similar mystery updates to other maps?

Fizzer did it in the update but have to say one of those things not everything Fizzer does is bad. It looks better.

Which update, and how'd you find out? This is more recent than 5.09.1 and there's no Warzone blog posts or app updates more recent than that.

Someone on Discord hinted that it might be the colorblind update

I updated it since the red number in africa was confusing some Idle newbies going through the tutorial. Idle uses red numbers along the bottom bar to indicate things, and if the map was planned and zoomed just right, the africa bonus link could look like it was part of the interface instead of part of the map.

Idle is not a sanctioned, valid, or legitimate way to play the game of WarLight.

He gazed up at the ruddy North America. Three weeks it had taken him to learn what kind of love was hidden within the green borders of Africa. O cruel, needless misunderstanding! O stubborn, self-willed exile from the loving breast! Two gin-scented tears trickled down the sides of his nose. But it was all right, everything was all right, the struggle was finished. He had won the victory over himself. He loved the new Small Earth Board Map.

On March 6, 2015, four and a half weeks after its proposal, the Warzone.com name change was mocked and shot down throughout the whole of the FORUM. To-day, in March 2021, it is again established throughout the FORUM, enjoying full liberty, stronger and internally more compact than ever before.

All persecutions of the Idle and the moderators at its head, all the imputations and calumnies, have not been able to prevail against it. Thanks to the justice of its ideas, the integrity of its intentions and the spirit of denial that animates its developers, it has overcome all oppression and increased its strength through the ordeal. If, in our contemporary world of listening to players, Idle remains always conscious of the profound nature of its struggle and feels that it personifies the values of individual design and game development, and orders its action accordingly--then it may count with mathematical certainty on achieving victory some day in the future. And Warzone Idle must necessarily win the position which belongs to it on this internet if it is led and organized according to these principles.

A Game which, in an epoch of player feedback, devotes itself to the duty of keeping the best ideas off its immediate roadmap must one day become ruler of the Web.

The adherents of our Idle must always remember this, whenever they may have misgivings lest the greatness of the sacrifices demanded of them may not be justified by the possibilities of success.

(TL;DR: It's kind of weird that this just happened unannounced and no one made a big deal out of it. It's part of this site's trend toward arbitrary, unilateral rule. I miss the laissez-faire era where the metagame was stable and the player base had more control over its experience or at least was able to be heard instead of shut down, dismissed, or retaliated against. I miss 2016 Warlight more and more each day.)

(TL;DR TL;DR: God is good because good comes from God. Fizz Heil!)
