Medals will be shined and sent out to all winners. Well done guys.

I will post full stats later this week. But a few questions, why did these maps win? Does having longer play time guarantee a win?

That is your opinion about your map? :lol:

Seems the rest of the public do not agree with you considering you got over half the vote.

I thought Kings Court 2 would be the big winner. I guess I forgot that a majority of players still prefer a more 'classic' sort of map. Of course, I don't mean that as a slight. Eurasia is a great map.

When you consider Eurasia had about 6 more months of play, Kings court 2, still in beta did bloody well to get the one win and the 4 second places. This was the one map that took Eurasia to the wire in a lot of the categories. Given more time, it may of won some more as well. It was also the only map in beta that took anything.

I voted Eurasia in some categories even though I've never actually played the large map, and strongly dislike the map maker, that says a lot about how good the map looks lol.

That's not true, they've had equal amount of play on the site.

Eurasia went live into BETA on 3 May 2012, and was officially quenched on 12 September 2012.

King's Court 2 went live into BETA on 16 April 2012 (17 days earlier than Eurasia) but hasn't yet been quenched because of the need to iron out game mechanics and stuff like that, which is understandable since it is a more complex map. It probably still had less games played on it in part due to its BETA tag, since many players stay away from such maps incase of gameplay changes midway.

King's Court 2 is definitely an excellent map, but like what ViperOverLord mentioned, 'classic' gameplay is ultimately more popular than the complex ones, so I don't think the results would have changed much. That said, the complex maps definitely add much variety in gameplay and strategies into the site, and are very much integral to the entertainment factors of the site (:

Congratulations to all winners and mapmakers, and thanks for giving us so many choices to play on!
