This is an ugly map. Can it. Bring back the original. Quite a few people that I regularly play avoid this map now, as do I. Get rid of it.

Yeah. I don't mean to be harsh, but I really like the original more than this new map. The original is clearer and easier on the eyes. Would you consider bringing back the old map please?

Everything is pretty cool with this map except the colors. I think with a bit of tweaking it could be a quick fix. They are just too bright and vivid. tone em down a little, and then see if it garners more interest. good luck pep. 8-)

Um, what? "another map killed"? We can debate on whether or not the Germany revamp works, but I can't for the life of me think of what you even mean there by implying that that the revamp process has "killed" other maps.

And before getting snooty, I think you might want to bear in mind that it's only due to the thousands upon thousands of hours of time put into mapmaking by members of the foundry that this site has such a bounty of maps in the first place.

I appreciate the fact that you don't like the Germany revamp, but you do yourself a disservice by getting pissy at an entire community of volunteers.

Well put! Other than a few individuals who operate the "business side" of CC, this site is predominantly a collection of volunteers who contribute many hours in mapmaking, running tournaments and moderating.
To bitch about aspects which are being offered completely gratis - and often thanklessly - is like being invited to dinner, being served lasagna and then complaining that you would have preferred prime rib.
