That definitely sucks. Take a look at the number games that have been played on shapes as opposed to art. Art loses, hands down. Leave shapes up.

Let the players decide, put all three up and let them run for 6 months. The two with the largest number of plays over that period, stay. Should be an interesting battle.

The comparison between shapes and art doesn't work because all of the Classic games got added as Classic shapes.

Comparing active games, there are 1915 games on Shapes and 517 games on Art.
Comparing waiting games, there are 211 games on Shapes and 81 games on Art.

So it does seem that Shapes is more popular than Art, but Shapes is also the default map which might have a strong effect on popularity. In any case, I would be fine with Shapes and Art staying live but that decision will be made by lackattack.

You see, world cities/new classic is exactly the same as shapes, just with better graphics. It has the same circles connected with line style. It just has different names and the continent in the background, so I don't see why you would possibly need shapes if you have it.

No, it is just getting a name change and will be put up as classic.

Yes, shapes is definitely easier to teach on. We could have the contest between the maps by measuring the usage from the date the new map is introduced, thus avoiding legacy count.

I've had my eye on this map in the foundry for quite a while -- it looks great! A perfect replacement for classic.

Nice work. ;)

It's probably take me longer than that just to ask if I should attack from Novosibirsk to Chengdu :lol:

Bruce has a big point there... Keep all 3!
