That cannot happen though or it would have already. And for years I have given people links to here to comment- so I agree and I have and will try.

You guys know what I thought about today when I started up a chinese checkers game....
I was like " I cannot be a hipocrit because I might be the onlyone left on CC that still loves this map"

Then I was like, that is the solution! Listen... lack can run numbers. Let the players decide.

The lowest played map gets tossed into probation each month. If it is the lowest played map or in the bottom 5 two months in a row.. put it back in the foundry for revision or death.


Let the players decide... how fair is that?



i already suggested the least played maps be withdrawn from live play. nobody agreed :(

I'll agree. I think that's a great suggestion. If a map is in the bottom 5 out of over 200 maps, it should be put on probation and stored somewhere dark.

In the future something like that would be necessary, what will be the limit CC can take ? 400 - 500 or more ?
Anohter solution could be make categories for the maps, and store those who dont get played much but still available for gamers who are nostalgic ;)

I really only read the forums once in a while now-a-days man.

But yeah I think this may be the way to go.

Think about it guys, if a map is not being played, it needs to come back into the system here for improvement. And if noone cares enough to improve it and noone cares enough to play it, then why do we have it?

should I submit this to "sugestions"? I do not think I can get enough people riled up about this... many people in cc play 50 maps or less and that is it.. is this something worth me campaigning for?

I don't think removing maps will be much of a help. Having a map browser that organizes the maps into categories and lists statistics like number of games played and <<new idea, for me, anyway>> map ratings (like player ratings, details to be determined) would help users find maps they might enjoy without taking away maps that may be the favourites of just a few players.

Removing maps is a terrible idea. Crappy maps with clan support would remain (beef anyone?) and good, but quirky maps would be punished.

It also rewards the older maps that people are already familiar with and makes it difficult for new maps to get enough exposure to stick.

Well, there could always be a grace period for new maps. Problem solved, next question.

Clan support for bad maps: who cares? If they like it enough to play even if it is a stupid map, then it should stay. Problem solved, next question.

I don't think that really matters. The leaders don't really care who submit something. Just if it has support/merit. And, let's be honest, this will only happen with a lot of support or if lack steps in. So, either way, it probably won't happen, but you could make the suggestion either way. Problem not really solved.

What good does it do exactly to remove maps from play?

To have less choice of maps? I just don't get it... what would you get out of it?

Better maps. People would be forced to make maps that will be played on. If a map is in the bottom 2 percentile, how great can it be?

What could be interesting is to make a pucblic vote round, where the ordinary CC gamer put hes vote on whats importend for a map, we alredy had a pull for you favorite map, this result dident gave the prettiest or newest one any advantages, its some times what people also feels comfort of, If I frequently play the same map and almost win every time, I will get a relationship with this map even if it is but ugly, you know like a dog, hes ugly as hell but you love him.
So starting to sort out which go or stay will devine people in CC.
Thers no guarantee for the most fantastic, prettiest map ever will played most.

What is important for the players is gameplay. Graphics do not come into the equation at all apart from in the foundry. If the GP is shit, it will not get played on no matter how great the graphics are. Gameplay has to be the first, second and last thing dealt with in the foundry. Not saying pretty graphics have to be discarded, but GP must have more thought into it.
