New Map Variant Interest Poll

The Forum for proposing and discussing variant maps which might be nominated for addition to the site.

What is your level of interest in adding a new map variant to the site?

Poll ended at 12 Aug 2020, 20:57

I want a new variant yesterday.
I am satisfied with the current number of variants.
I am still trying to figure out War in the Americas. (i.e. the last variant that was added)
I am not a premium member so this is irrelevant to me.
The standard variant is enough for me.

Thank you for the explanation and for the advice. I have voted.

WItA needs to be more clearly drawn in some of its borders, supply center balance, and the irritating and historically inaccurate Northwest Passage needs deleted.

The Canton version needed more discussion but had the beginnings on an interesting alternative.

The second likes variants, but is good with the current number. The 5th only ever plays standard. Kind of like only ever ordering the same menu item when you go to a fast food restaurant.

The drawing might be an option to update, but the rest of it isn't really ours to change. It'd have to be a new variant entirely if you're planning on changing things since PlayDiplomacy just automates existing variants.

You should go on over to the proposal page and continue the discussion then. :) I'm sure Custer would be glad to hear some interest.

NoPunIn10Did/super_dipsy, there seems to be interest in a new variant. Anyway for us to gauge what overall percentage that interest is though? Not sure if y'all have access to "unique number of visitors per post" or not.
