My, my, it's that time again. This poll is going up a few days early since I'll be leaving on vacation tomorrow morning.

The next issue's poll is about the number of maps you play on a regular basis. Vote, comment, you know the drill :)

Very few people can say that they have won on 84 of the 90 released maps, and I'm working on making that every single map period.

By indicating that I have won on 84 of 90, I would assume that I play on all of them regularly, but I could be wrong.

you could have played on them just to say you've won on them.... doesn't mean its a regular thing... like the first couple of times i played arctic, it was to try to move up in the cross map,

i've won on it, don't play it regularly

I've been trying to play every new map at least once or twice, and then more if I like it.
But if I'm looking for a good traditional game, I always go back to my old favorites: Africa, Asia, Great Lakes, Indochina, Scotland, and USA, to name a few.
If I'm looking for something with some different strategy, then there's AoR 1 and 2, Dday and Feudal for me to play with.
There are others I like also, but those are the ones I'm most interested in right now.

So I guess I fall into the 6-15 category.

I try to play 10-15 games at a time, with a rare 20 going at other times. I find that less than 10 isnt satisfying enough, but more than 20 and i get to overwealmed. Once I get down to 5 or less games going, I immediately join enough to have 10 going :D



The maps I play the most are the AoR maps, just because I like their gameplay styles. Usually whenever a new map comes out, Ill join 1-5 games of that, but then if I dont like it I wont play it for a while.

I like playing many, but since I'm trying to get my studies underway, I've cut back a lot. I currently have just over 20 active, but have had them all going at once at times. I just love this site!

I voted "A bunch" - I try to play all maps - but have been on a self enforced hiatus until September - itching to make/join some games!!!

I like to keep it interesting so I'll generally just sift through the new games every once in a while and semi-randomly join the games, though I stick ot the pretty standard gameplay maps and have a preference for geographical maps.

Whatever tourneys throw at my way, I guess, since my spots are reserved for tourney...so I just voted "some" though I don't really play maps regularly.
