Was that when the original was pulled or something? I can't think of the significance of 6 days from now.

I believe this should just be released as a new map, and not replace one of the existing ones.


I say this mostly because my score sucks on the existing ones :P

Are we replacing both those Classic monstrosities with World Cities? That would be refreshing.

Keep Art...it's fine. If y'all run into more copyright problems, maybe do a futuristic classic map like you would have seen on a Strategic Air Command bunker wall.

Like mpjh said, Shapes has easy to use short names that aren't arbitrary abbreviations. For someone who likes to limit typing to prevent further hand injury (especially when there's not much time after the new turn starts in freestyle games with teams, e.g.), I think that's pretty awesome. I find that on another site people get confused with "Kam" and "CenA," and I expect similar with the new map. People will still use the "obscure" cities during gameplay, so that argument doesn't work.

Just some thoughts from someone who's finished 35 games and doesn't pay yet. :)

Sorry, but expect your opinion to be wholly discounted as long as your rank symbol is silver.

Sad but true.
