If I remember correctly, there was no discussion like this so far.

So, which map is your favorite? Or more than one?

You have 10 points, you can assign them on the maps, then I collect them in the first post.

PS: some maps that were removed from the multiplayer are still cool, fortunately they are available as training.

I was thinking about launching another map creation contest in parallel to a map "demotion" poll.
We could do that on a monthly basis and this way iterate on the map list until we find a good spot.

Nice idea :idea:

Let's get rid of Mind Map. This map drives me crazy. It is so much about choreography, like in the god old days of 5.2

I agree, it's the only map I can't use a single bot with my generic AI, every move needs to be carefully designed.

I always found the careful designing and choreography of mind what made it my favorite map. This is the one map above others I actually want to keep.

So, 10 points, all for Mind ^^

I tend to like close-range maps with just a few resources (obviously since my AI seems to do best there) although weirdly I didn't plan it to be that way at all (I tried to make an AI which focuses on winning the teamfight over capping resources, but hey it works).

Also it's nice to meet some of the people I've been battling against on the forum. :mrgreen: I recognise quite a few people here as my mortal enemies. :twisted:

Kaonicping, just met you in a match and you almost killed my SG. Pure luck that I survived this one.

I rethought about my favourite map and I think it's kingmaker. You have to decide for which resource you fight how hard. Often is more valuable to avoid the direct confrontation. And I like dropping a resource close to my sniper. Enemy often try to rush for that one and starve on the way :geek:

I suck at mind game and CoD. CoD used to be my most successful map before tags came along. I try to imitate that AI and it just doesn't work now... too slow. I'm not sure what you guys are doing now but my win rate is probably 50% or less on that one. Same with mind game though I haven't tried to specialize in it much, using generic AI. Same for Kingmaker but I can appreciate the strategy I see you guys using.
