I like real places, and I like fantasy places too. This decision is tougher than I thought it would be. I might need a few days to decide.

Not to worry, we all miss things now and again. Been working on this for over a month now and know every single comma, colon and syntax. ;) But I see you did not miss the advert spoiler for the medal though. :lol:

I don't quite have a video, but there's me building my bathtub, which would inevitably mean I change my clothes at some point:

I'd choose Kittens if I could in this poll I think. Whether it is "real" or "madeup" doesn't dramatically affect my interest in a map. As long as it is visually appealing, and appeals to my love standard or straightforward gameplay mostly, I like I like I like.

I voted for real.

The reason is that CC is missing some great historical maps.

Voted for fantasy. Ideally I would love a huge, "mostly standard play" fantasy BR map. But this is me shooting for the stars

Dare I say it, but I really like the enormous standard maps on a rival site before I played premium here

As a bit of a history buff, I value the educational aspect of CC maps based on real places.
So, I voted for a map based on a real place.

Logging of for the night. A good first few hours.

@Gilligan, love that bath video.
@Andy, kittens, really? Each to their own I guess.
@jigger, @sempai, @Doom, history is something I can get behind.
