1. Why is Trafalgar in one of the groups when it is still in Beta and has gameplay flaws - that shouldn't be allowed in the mix...please remove it

2. How the heck did you come up with some of these 4 groupings sam, when many of these maps are not comparable with each other - the voting on that one will be an absolute farce


I think groupings are all based on random order, via random.org.

Actually... they weren't played on Classic Art either. If I remember correctly, that came around the end of 2008.

Classic was originally, for the most part, what you would see on a RISK board.

Yeah, I wasn't sure if we could say that or not. I thought maybe we were supposed to avoid any reference to the "R" word. ;)

It needs to be selected in the polls for the respective categories?

How do you get to see the maps in the Spot The Differences Contest? I clicked on the link and all I see is the page where you enter your answers, no maps.

the map was unlocked at 18:00 CC Time, the form comes few seconds before the map but you should be able to see it now. If not try ctrl+f5. ;)

Okay, I can see them now. I did try it mere seconds after 18:00 CC time. Saw the countdown clock and everything else, but it's all good now. :D

Yeah, does everyone who submits get a medal or just the fastest one? I can only spot 2 after 10 minutes of staring. :oops:

the changes aren't very subtle and are rather easy to spot.
but don't worry and take your time, EVERYBODY gets a medal if they find all differences. even if you find them in 2 minutes or 2 hours.

or at least that's what i understood from this:

which is actually rather silly because some maps are niche maps and no matter how great their gameplay or graphics are they'll never be as popular as a more classic map.

normally maps should be aranged in the game finder according to various customizable categories and based on those categories polls could be created much easier. but such categories were proposed 3-4 years ago and haven't been implemented yet so there's zero chance they ever will.
