Hey guys, I wanted to see how the community would feel about changing the ladder template to utilize the new Europe map that I made. Here's a form I'd appreciate if you guys could fill out. I restricted it to verified google accounts so that you can only vote once. Voting is anonymous.https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSdgH4MkPhe_8LOtbmJWxBfYoTLbNid9VWOVos7e0NencOcQsg/viewform?usp=sf_link
My map: https://www.warzone.com/Map/44760-Trolls-Europe-2009
Current map: https://www.warzone.com/Map/25244-Europe-remake
Since my map does change some territory connections, I provided a list on my map copy as to what those connection changes are. For the most part the regions that saw the most change are Czech, Poland, Slovakia, Hungary, Romania. There was also a pretty inconsequential change in Ukraine as well.
Here's an example game of the template being played in a tournament I'm hosting currently: https://www.warzone.com/MultiPlayer?GameID=35706125
Pay close attention to the connections in Hungary/Slovakia as it does affect the gameplay there. Personally, I don't think that the overall impact is great enough to constitute calling it a completely different template. The meta is largely the same. Islands are your protected corner, Russia is sorta protected, and center is quite open. What I think is more important is that the map has much more clarity, it's much easier to see the connections in those aforementioned regions than it was before. It's also much easier to denote different bonuses between each other since I changed the colors up a bit.
If you have any questions, comments, or concerns just let me know here or in pm.
