Which of the current maps in the 1v1 matchmaker pool do you like? Which ones do you want to kick out?

Share your opinions in this poll:

September poll: https://forms.gle/2SW1pByZ6EcaWhcX6

This poll is being conducted with a view to rotating the matchmaker pool sometime in the next month or two.

Done. Will be interesting to see the results.

Maybe I'll get back to map making one of these days. I kinda dropped the ball.

I loved the map choice system from the tournament. I'd enjoy having a similar system in the MM, where each player gets to ban one map and the remaining one is played on. This system can then be used to determine the least popular maps so they can be rotated out.

I'm intending to close this and get the results sometime this coming weekend, so if you want your opinion heard and you haven't replied yet do it soon; it doesn't take very long :)

Forgot to post this.



A preliminary plan is:

Remove
------

EvoRTS-New Iammas
Intersection
Living Lands

Add
---

Rogues River
Archers Valley
Altair Crossing


The other two notably less-than-liked maps are Aurelian and Into Battle.

It's known that a fair slice of the playerbase dislikes sea but some people enjoy it quite a bit; also having 1v1 sea games to counterbalance data from large teams makes maintaining sea easier. A different sea map could replace Aurelian but I suspect the slot's rating would not improve much (Shimmershore? Columbia Basin? Inculta Wet? Flooded Valley? Something new?)

Into Battle hasn't been in the pool very long so it seems reasonable to give it a little more time.

I'm a supporter of adding newly made maps, so I'm fine with adding Rogues River, but why Archers Valley and Altair Crossing? One of them has trees blocking everything and both of them have very artificial hills that path and look weird.

A new map that isn't too large and hasn't had MM time yet (afaik), is Incandescence. (Also offers interesting graphics compared to all the grass maps).

As a replacement for Altair Crossing/Living Lands, which I suppose has to be a small map, we could have a vote between a few older maps.

There have been concerns about how visually noisy Incandescence is. I'm not against it in principle.

As far as I know most of the older "small" maps that are symmetric, etc. have already been in MM and got thrown out. Do you have specific suggestions?

In general there are fewer truly viable 1v1 matchmaker maps than one might think.

I wouldn't mind seeing Insular Encounter as a small map but Alcur reports that some of the terrain isn't quite symmetric in gameplay-affecting ways. Hopefully it will be fixed in the new version when that appears.

Looking for comments on:
  • Shifting Sands
  • Incandescence
  • Fifteen Platforms
  • Izki Channel
  • Badlands
  • Archers Valley
(Not saying all of these will necessarily go in this time, though.)

I really liked Izki Channel as it needs some more thinking than just constant sea unit clashes like in Aurelion.

Sadly nobody other than RUrankizirayd and me did play on Shifting Sands in the tourney. Would have liked to have more data whether it still needs some changes or not. But it felt ok in my perspective and shows how to gain an advantage while fighting on optimal vs not optimal terrain for your factory.

Rogue river startboxes are weird aswell

DErankManu12 i banned it because i played a couple of matches on it already and i don´t like playing amph that much. it´s a good map imo.

15 platforms looks nice but has so many choke-points and i don´t like maps with voids or abysses or whatever it´s called because archer/sumo/newton...
