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.


--Andy

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.

Btw, just because I wish the old classics would stay doesn't mean I don't like the new map. It is nice on the eyes.

Great work sully, thanks for giving the classic a new style other than just shapes.

It is really needed for the site to look much more advanced.

Yeah it is slightly confusing to look at with all the lines, the classic shapes was really easy to see the connections between territories whereas this one is harder on the eyes

I like this map a lot, but it could be made a lot better by somehow making the different continents easier to tell apart. It is somewhat confusing, especially between asia and europe. Otherwise great work.

I love classic shapes for it's simplicity. I also like the fact it doesn't represent a map of countries, but something abstract instead. It takes away a lot of the distractions of a "real" map, so you can fully focus on the game itself.
