I hope there will be a trophy/achievement for map-making, like making a map with a rating above 4 after at least 100 ratings. (important bit, since most maps start at a way higher rating than the one they settle for after a while).

my proposition is "Big villain" (or something similar) for getting blacklisted by 100 persons ;)

I've avoided making any achievements for map making. Map making isn't something you really want to encourage 100% of players to do, otherwise you'd end up with a ton of crappy maps that people put zero effort into.

For example, say you had an achievement for making a map. All of the sudden you'd see thousands of maps that were created just to satisfy the achievement -- just drag a bunch of boxes and randomly connect them. This isn't behavior you want to encourage -- you want to encourage creating quality maps.

Map making is a specialized art which utilizes a very different skill than playing WarLight. Achievements are something that many players will try to complete as a task list. These fundamentally don't mix well.

Trying to restrict it by rating or some other quality metric is fraught with problems. No matter where you set the quality bar, you'd just have a bunch of people trying to make a map that barely qualifies to get the achievement. This isn't the kind of map making behavior I want to encourage.

(Note: I cannot exactly claim objectivity; Moros made a lot of maps I really like. But, with that in mind, I'd still like to propose...)

How about a map making trophy then? :)



kszyhoo, I think you misunderstood the blog post (or, at least, I read it differently). What I think is intended is an achievement for "eliminating three or more opponents and winning a game in a single turn" (that's one achievement, not a list of two, distinct achievements). It could also be phrased as "eliminating three or more opponents on the last turn of a game".

kszyhoo, I don't think that the 'Big Villian' thing is a good idea because it would encourage people to try and get blacklisted. I also don't think that people should get awarded for getting blacklisted either :P Although, it would help to pick out the game trolls I guess ;)

Yep, right - it doesn't sound so stupid now :P
But still, it is a good example of what is worrying me about those trophies - a lot of people may do bizzare things in order to get tropies, and thus disrupting games and fun to others. Imagine 4(or more) players FFA with 'surrender must be accepted' enabled. One player is surely winning, all others surrendered. But will he accept those surrenders and end game or will he force them to play, corner and strip to one territory so eventually he can "eliminate three or more opponents on the last turn of a game" ?
