Many great ones, but I especially like Japan, Nordic Countries, Celtic Seven Nations & Flanders1302.
Who gets the vote though; No competition Napoleonic Europe (1812) =D>

Napoleonic, I haven't even begun to plumb the strategic depths of that map, and despite being a LOT of information, it doesn't overwhelm.

Postby Raskholnikov on Sun Jan 09, 2011 7:21 pm

Well I am really humbled to see how many of you all like Napoleonic Europe. I still have the first draft, drawn by hand, on a piece of paper, and am amazed what Kab and ender managed to do with it to arrive at the final version. Biased or not, my vote goes to it - but I must say that, from an artistic point of view, I truly love Japan - its simplicity, balance and fidelity to its theme are a model of design and execution. However, from a purely creative point of view, Dawn of Ages is truly a work of art - its hand-drawn black ink on old parchment is simply masterful, and so is it adaptation of various folk legends into a coherent whole.

All in all, rather than just one map, my vote for this year goes to Kab as 2010's outstanding mapmaker - and given his King's Court and Fall of Roman Empire, it will be hard to supplant him in 2011... Thanks for everything Kab! Working with you was both a pleasure and a privilege...

Voted woodboro but I could've went with Nordic countries or the world cup map or lunar war.

It was a great year in the foundry, I'm looking forward to what 2011 will bring with some quality betas already out there.

If I was to decide in terms of the gameplay no doubt I'll pick Stalingrad.
Graphically I'd have to declare a tie among at least 5 maps (like Flanders, Cyprus, Napoleonic, etc.).
Great production last year. Even though I still miss WidowMakers and Qwert :(
