Please go to End Game thread for details of the competition.

Welcome to the great community map project. Here we aim to make the next best thing to sliced bread. A map made by the whole conquer club community, for the whole conquer club community. So the more you and your friends take part, the better it will be.

Here is how it will work.
Over the next few weeks, we will run a series of polls. All you have to do is vote for your favoured choice or choices. See, it is that easy. The first poll is already up and running. Each poll will run for about a week. At the end, a competition will be held to see who can make the best map from the set of criteria we have all set. Be warned though, each choice you make will effect the next polls options.


show: the story so far

Lets have some fun.
To make this fun for all, we are going to be giving a few medals away each week and months. So you do not just come vote and run, each week, a player at the end of the month will receive a GC medal and 500 conquer credits. This medal will be called The Patrons Medal. To win this, all you need to do is say why you voted the way you did over the course of the month and generally participate within the thread. (2 months = 2 medals & credits)

You can read more about the Patrons Medal below in the information spoiler.

Some of you would of played the competitions I have been running in the dispatch over the last few months. Well, they have now been brought here. Each week, a simple fun competition or competitions will be run. Just look out for the post that has the competitions banner in it.


A series of fast and furious tournaments will be run. You can enter these in the tournament thread. But a GA medal will also be awarded to a player in these tournaments. You need to play in the tournament and be part of this thread to have a chance of winning though.

KingRat asked me to post here and I voted for 'Real Place'
Most of the maps I enjoy are based on real places I find the fantasy maps put to much emphasis on the fantasy aspect ;)

Postby betiko on Mon Apr 01, 2013 10:16 am

i voted a fantasy map because i think that most real places have been "mapped". why not just a map with lots of people from the CC forums community? there is one made with the clans, could be one with the forums.
I don't know, some territories could have the name of certain players, and depending on the players, some could be able to bombard, some players could be autodeploys, some people that always share the same point of view could gve bonuses, some that are "enemies" could give negative bonuses if you hold both...
and those maps could be updated once in a while. it could be like a running joke to see that X or Y player has been attributed this or that spot on the CC forum map this month. would be a very interactive map based on the community, with a layout that would remain the same but with names changing once a month.

@Swifte, glad to see a friendly face for the first post. Keep on coming. :P :oops: :lol:
@betiko, the gameplay elements you talk about, autodeploys and bombardments, will be decided in the future. :D
@KingRat, go and leave your feedback in the correct place. :roll:

But can you persuade the others to go along with you? Not everyone likes bombards or auto deploys, so why should they be included? As for players names, I can see that, mine is already on one map. But how many RL places have thenobodies80 as a place name. :lol:

Rorke's Drift :ugeek:

I guess it would depend, for me, what the place *would* be if it were a real place. I'd life to see a new Asia map (you know...not Far East). I'll have to think on my vote some more.

I voted for fantasy. We already have so many existing places.
With the a fictional map, you can be so much more creative! I think creativity is the way to go here! :-)

Guys...These kinds of posts will obviously get us nowhere. OBVIOUSLY, koontz will check to the username of the poster and if it's the same as the guy that referred him, he won't be getting any points for the GA medal. :roll: :roll:

You should be posting here for the good of the foundry, not for the *chance* of a GA medal. :|

So true, the benefit of the foundry is what we are here for.

Gilligan, the rules state you can vote for yourself for an easy 5 points. It is the others you persuade to come is what counts. The ones that would not normally come here. Just a shame noone read the rules though. You need to post feedback in any thread here.

These things always hit teething problems the first few days. ;)
