Changed my vote to battle since that can lead to the more unorthodox gameplay and maps.

i vote battle because I feel that they usually require a more complicated strategy with a better chance to come back from a bad drop

What would we call it?

Battle of the Chocolate Munchkins?

...Well that sounded racist. Unless you're getting Dunkin Donut Munchkins.

Damn hindsight.

Voted for World.
Why? Making a world, not like the existing maps, is a big project. The GCCM is also a big project.
I think you boys need a challenge! This could be one. ;-)

Voted for battle. I think that making a fantasy battle looks epic. It will definitly push the limits of our imagination and who knows if CC is not responsible for a big Hollywood script in the future :D

Some of you have asked why the poll is like this, this week. Well, here is the explanation for it.

You have to take it all in scope, not theme.

A world map would really let the imagination flow. Imagine another Classic map but set on Mars or Europa. Not with cities like New York or Berlin, but land marks like Olympus Mons or Tharsis Bulge. But also thinks of HG Wells, Peter Pan, OZ.
A continent would allow a massive war to take place. Not unlike our WW2 maps. When you think of this, think Lord of the Rings.
A country, you have to think Beowulf, Outer Heaven or Archenland.
Battles, well this is just self evident. Small scale battles take place throughout fantasy, from the mind games played by telepathic people to space battles in Star Wars.
If I was to name this list of choices as maps we have, I would place it like this
Classic
World war 2 Europe
Age Of Realms
Trench Warfare
It all comes down to, how gritty do you want the map? How close to the action do you want to be? Personally I like to see the red glow in the eyes of aliens just before I kill them.

I vote for a map of a world.
WHY?

As was said prior this is limited to what the mind can imagine. I would envision a map that would include many worlds. Each additional world can only be reached by completing the objectives for each world... ...Now that would truly be a map that a conqueror could love

I am completely undecided... the options with fantasy are so broad.. it's hard to be sure what would be the best fit!
