[COMPLETED] April 2019 New Map Election

Postby NoPunIn10Did » 11 Apr 2019, 16:37

Vote for PlayDiplomacy's Next Map!
Image
It's time to bring a new map to PlayDiplomacy.com!
As part of the current map proposal and selection process, the mods have nominated two of the maps proposed for the community to vote on.

We are opening this vote to all users on the site, and this poll will stay open for the rest of the month of April. Based on the result, we will then begin the work required to adapt and implement the winning map on PlayDiplomacy.com!
The result will be treated as a non-binding referendum. Elections made open to non-premium players, like this one, must be scrutinized more heavily, as online polls accessible to free accounts are notorious for being easy to exploit.

And if your favorite of the two maps doesn't win? Worry not: it could be a candidate next time!

2019 Nominations for Next New Map

Cast your vote by using the poll shown at the top of this thread.
The poll is now closed.

Replying to this thread does not count as voting.

Important Note: the art is not final for either map. They will be adapted to conform to the style currently seen in Hundred.

Image
War in the Americas
  • 10 Players
  • Set in the Americas circa 1840
  • Designed by Macario Reyes. Proposed by NoPunIn10Did.
  • Please see the Proposal Thread for further details.
OR

Image
Canton
  • 7 Players
  • Set in Asia circa 1901
  • Designed by Paul Webb. Proposed by Enriador.
  • Please see the Proposal Thread for further details.

But what if I want some other map?
If you want to see some other map on PlayDiplomacy.com, please read through this post:
How to Propose & Vote for New Map Variants

Then, you can post your proposal in the New Map Variant Proposals & Voting subforum. Assuming the map meets the criteria described, it might be a candidate for site inclusion in a future election.

Canton is better :P :P :P :P :P
It would be fun to run a tournament where all players play all the seven player map variants once each, or something like that...
Colonial got second place in 2013.
And in 2018, 64% already voted to go for Colonial next.
Don't turn down Colonial's sister, Canton :cry:

To be fair, from that particular vote (emphasis added)...

Canton is the Nerfed Colonial though. Or balanced version... But if we're going to vote for a 7 player, I'd push for Heptarchy all the way. ;)

So far, no one has actually officially proposed Heptarchy...
