Season XLVI Template Selection: 10/2/2021 18:12:03

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

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 XLIII 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, October 18th, 2021
  • Phase 2 - Monday, October 25th, 2021
  • Phase 3 - Monday, November 1st, 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 XLVI. 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.

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

Belarus                        https://www.warzone.com/MultiPlayer?GameID=24672724
Black Sea                      https://www.warzone.com/MultiPlayer?GameID=28343732
EA&O SR                        https://www.warzone.com/MultiPlayer?GameID=27821267
Fast Earth                     https://www.warzone.com/MultiPlayer?GameID=27364365
Post-melt Antarctica           https://www.warzone.com/MultiPlayer?GameID=27930929

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 XLIII 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 Wednesday, November 3rd, 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 XLVI Template Votes
1 Belarus
2 Black Sea
3 EA&O SR
4 Fast-earth
5 Post-melt Antarctica
