It looks awesome!

HI Twill I bet you were frustrated that day!

Finally glad to see a chance for a replacement that looks like it could be welcomed by the Community---and hopefully bring in new Conquer Club users as well. :)

Keep up the work folks. And always remember, go to the Foundry and get your voice heard. If you don't comment, participate, or at a minimum actively read, you may not end up with the desired output you want!

Maybe a stupid question but, I was wondering, could we like keep the current one, but just rename it?

Actually, we teach on the shapes map and play a ton of games on it at SOC -- if we could keep it for teaching, it would be helpful.

I agree keep all 3... It works very well with the 2 now. This one will take top spot, but the other should be kept. I am just getting to know all the names on Classic Art!

I think they should remove shapes and art. I'd like to get all my classic games back under 1 stat. Already have a split on shapes (which includes the old classic game), then art, if we then add a third, then I am stuck with what is in all the essentials the same game split over three maps. It may be a 'nerd's opinion'..but you see if I care!

Beyond that, shapes has always looked like hell and art, to my mind, also looks like it was knocked up over a working lunch with a few good bottles of wine. Neither are anywhere near the quality the CC Community has come to expect.

Just to clarify, it is only Classic Shapes that is being revamped and replaced. Classic Art will remain alongside the new Classic - at least in the short term.

Seriously, why and on what basis? Once we have a decent classic back, what's the point of 'art'? It is bloody annoying for team games (assuming you and your team are not lovers of art history), looks like hell and, as it has the same gameplay as the 'new classic'...get rid of it!

Great to hear Shapes will be trashed and even better that Sully's map will be given such an exalted status. =D>
