you are here 4 years,and im here 6 years.
Lets see- for these period you create 170 tournament-and i create 8 maps(42 tournament per year,and 1 map per year). these mean that create map are very hard and not easy job.

From other side i create 22 tournaments(creating 7110 games) and you create zero maps( 3,6 tournament per year-zero map per year) these mean that for me create tournament are much easy then for you to create map.

Now you say that hard to win a tournament? And you have 45 medals?
I win in 5 tournament, and its not difficulty,only what i need to do its TO PLAY,, no hours of work in Photoshop.

Do you know how much i spend in creating of some maps? 16 month for WWII Europe-6 month for WWII Eastern Front. And for these time you manage to win in 45 tournaments, how can these be difficulty????
One day when you create map,then you can talk about development of maps.

Unlike winning a small tournament which anyone with some dice luck can win, creating a map will test your dedication and skill in ways playing a luck based board game will never do. ANYONE can win a tournament, because ANYONE can win a couple of games in a row, and that is often all it takes to win a tournament. Anyone can try to make a map, but very few can become good enough to prompt the site to use it as a playable map. You mentioned time, you don't think with time ANYONE can learn how to play RISK good enough to win a tournament? All you need is some advice from a veteran or a bunch of games on said map, I know that from experience.
Learning how to make a map is like painting, ANYONE can doodle down some ugly crap, but few can paint well enough to get their paintings into an art gallery.

Yes, I think that anyone can make a map here. It can take quite a while for some, but I'm been in the foundry and been a part of the process over there with a couple of maps. The foundry community is very helpful and patient. On this site, I believe that anyone can make a quality map.

I've worked on three maps, I know how much works lies ahead of you if you try to make a map, and let me tell you, it's a shitload of work! The mapmakers should be knighted for the time they put down on this site, not be compared with tournament organizers or even worse, tournament winners, who have done nothing special at all.

I don't have anything nice to say to you about tournament organizing, since you have abandoned 8 tournaments and finished only 1. With a record like that, how easy can tournaments be to run?

@qwert: You can say the same thing about tournaments. It's really top-heavy for the winners. As I said, 9761 winners and 2470 of those wins are from the top 2.5% (50 people). So, I don't think that your argument holds water.


It's one of the easiest things in the world to do. I'm about to finish one right now, and it was no effort at all to do so. Yet that tournament contains three times as many games as the lowest standard tournament. If you seriously think typing a few words in a forum thread and sending out invites to players is harder than spending at least 100 hours in photoshop working on a map (that's about the least you can get away with), then you've gone mad! Hosting tournaments is super easy! As long as you're on the site, I tend to come and go as I please and so that's why I have so many abandoned tournaments. Nonetheless, it's easy pickings to do and should not be compared to map making.

Let's move the discussion on to something else, please. We don't actually gain anything by debating about which activity is harder to do.

tournaments vs Map making.

Tournaments are easier to farm medals than map medals.

HOWEVER, BOTH are equally important to the site. Without maps this site would die, but without tournaments this site would also die. That is why both deserve recognition on the site.

The tournament communities and Map communities are very different though. It's like comparing different cliques in a school, do you REALLY want medal hunters to be all over the foundry just doing the bear minimum to get a medal? I don't think so. Map makers will never, ever be rightfully recognized unless they change recognition altogether. But I believe the truly dedicated members know and understand how much effort map makers put into their maps.

sorry mets, could not resist to post.

Hey there everyone! It looks like a scale (such as agentcoms) will be used for the update. Please stay tuned for this (hopefully soon) implementation.

rdsrds2120...have you solved the mapmaker's medal problem (that i have) above 30 with the same solution?

PS. I've read through the discussion previous, and i have to agree with Qwert....change over to Arabic numerals, the functionality is far better.
And if there is ever a need for functionality, this is it!


In all the discussion, there is not one example considered of what this change might look like...it actually looks very similar to the army numbers that are generated on all the maps.
I don't think they look too bad. :)

Cairns Coral Coast, agentcom? could be mis-interpretation there if awarded for tourney medal.

ok a few things, I kind of agree with a few opinions here:

-there should be a clan tab with the wins per clan and per player, a tab for maps created, and a tab for map contribution, the same way as for tournaments and I think it should be on the scoreboard tab, not in the tourneys tab

-arabic numerical system is a good Idea.

-we should create a new total medal count system that would be based on points, not number of medals! Saying that a map medal has the same value of a tournament organization is ridiculous. Creating a map is the most complicated thing on the site, some people have been working hard on maps trying to make everyne happy for monthes, and also creating a map is the best thing you can do for the community, much more than winning an individual medal.
Winning a tournament is much more difficult that hosting one!!! We should come up with a point system for medals. You can't value the same way 3 bronze medals (60 unique kills total) and 1 gold (400 unique kills total). We should have a game score on one side (the one currently in place) and a medal score on the other, where each medal type is valued accordingly to its difficulty. That way I would see no problem to pass the system to arabic figures bellow the given medals.

Well screw you, not all tournaments are 16 player brackets, there are some TOs that put a lot of work.

and do you think it's more work than creating a map?
aren't tournaments supposed to last 1 year max for some reason? I feel like I did something really stupid when I'm in a tournament lasting more than 4 month, and as a TO doing such thing is a nightmare with all dropouts and replacements to be done. You shouldn't ve been allowed to run such a long tournament imo.

now tournaments need to be designed to finish within a year but they weren't required to be when benga started that particular tourney.

yes, tourneys are less work than creating a map but once the tourney is over it is mostly forgotton whereas when a map is quenched only a few are quickly forgotton.
