I know the decision has been made, but I can't see the down side of keeping classic shapes and classic art available for play. I'll miss them.
The downside has been discussed in various other topics---since they all use the same game play, it creates multiple unnecessary entries for the server databases to keep track of. Streamlining everything into 1 map option is more efficient.
I respect the decision that's been made, but listing efficiency as a reason is a little bit silly. They are maps like any other CC maps. And 'unnecessary' is very subjective in this case. I don't guess any map on CC is 'necessary'. Either desired or not desired by members, but not 'necessary'.
If you say it was a policy decision based on how they want the site to be, no multiple maps with identical gameplay, I say ok, decision made. I'll still miss them.
