Public Shaming: Fizzer, Tear Down These Maps!: 6/5/2016 04:06:36

I started from the bottom (of the map list) now I'm here (on the forum). These 25 maps suck!

The Sir Nick Collection

Fizzer, St. Nick thinks you have been a naughty boy and gave you stockings full of coal! Don't keep the coal! 11 of the 25 lowest rated maps are his.

New Jersey? Foget abaht it! Just make one damn map of New York's colony. Any place that refers to "The City" as a city in another state or country doesn't deserve so much attention!

Death's review sums this up, "What is the point of this?" It looks like a heart on top of a toilet seat. Fizzer, just push it in and flush it down.

Possibly interesting idea, poor execution. It looks like a spider web ruled from the head of a horse (Great Britain).

This is rated low. But as a lotto game it might be useful, given the distribution modes.

This should be redone. Make every territory a bonus of 3-6 territories worth 2-4 armies and break up the 3 largest territories into 2-3 bonuses of 3-6 territories. If redone, this map could be good.

Mooo asks the hard questions, "why would u make a map like this?" The real question should be, "Fizzer, why would you publish a map like this?"

https://www.warlight.net/Map/24127-Rectangular-Earth
If an artistic background and color scheme were added to enhance the theme of abstract art, this could work on an artistic level. Or maybe use a cubist style.

Timinator's review, "Worse than Skunk maps."

If even the mapmaker describes his own map as "This map sucks," maybe it shouldn't be published.

What's wrong with having these maps? Unless I missed something, this isn't a problem to anyone. They don't break any rules, and can be easily filtered out of searches (or ignored).

Genghis, you should give up all forum activities until you know how to win a game. Go rate one of maps a 1. It will be an emotional victory for you.

What's wrong with these maps? They are an example of wasted server space, which costs money. Fizzer is too generous. Anything and everything is published. Standards are too low. Too much crap is saved on the site. Decreasing the amount of saved data would decrease expenses. Eventually, if WL continues to lose money or not make enough, he will be forced to sell it or give it up. Then what? All your joy of talking to strangers with ridiculous fake names will be gone.

Qi you should not give advice when you use alts, troll 24/7, sj*tpost all the time and act prejudice. You're perhaps the 3rd most conceited person on this site. If it were possible to crack open your thick skull, you'd probably be able to accept criticism. Maybe then, you, like other cancerous/trash/trisomy 21 et al "strategic" Forum posters will stop licking each other's almonds on the forum, stop doing personal rants on posters like me and start acting like a human being.

I've won many games. I don't need an emotional victory i already score on your mom every night.

While I do agree that some of these maps are terrible, and it may be useful to remove those that get a rating below 2 stars, there are exploits here, and you are suggesting removal of the lowest 25, which doesn't make much sense, as eventually if this is redone enough times, it will result in all maps disappearing.

@Qi Let's just allow these maps to exist.
Reasons:
1.They may have theoretical value since game theoretical research is easier in a more restricted environment at first. Hence mathematically the best WL map for research is the duel map, followed by Sir Nick's 3 terr map and truel.
2.Fizzer can reject any map isomorphic to any of such maps just like what he does to new duel maps.
3.They can be good for new players who want a small map. I did use his small maps when I was under Level 10.
4.They can be good in lotto games which I do not play.
Also please use lighter language on Sir Nick who has been away for a long time. Bad maps are naturally less played than good maps. If you hate a map please just avoid it. This is what free markets are about..:-) Sorry but public shaming is no good. (No offense)
@Genghis This is not the Off-Topic Forum. Please do not drag any non-WL related issues here. Thank you very much!

I doubt those crap small maps take up any server space, but I'd be fine with them going away. Worse problem are maps with broken connections that are never fixed. people can avoid crap maps, but sometimes you don't know about broken connections until already playing a map.

I feel like it's the responsibility of players to let map designers know when there's broken connections. Most new maps have them, and in most cases, the designer has already done everything in their power to fix them before publishing (for example, I click through every single territory on my maps before they go public).

there are some maps, where each territory is done with the pen without simplification. This isnt just plain ugly and inaccurate it may even consume a lot of memory space. But as long as 1000 GB cost only 5$/month, there will probably no change. However, I would like to have higher standards for new maps, just to avoid bad game experiences. some issues can easily be fixed and are absolutely worth the effort.

This. So much this.

Removing these maps stops people from being able to create games on horribly broken maps, which will improve the game experience of new players, if they decide to join games on these terrible maps.

There should be some standards for map acceptance. Sir Nick kind of already did it, but people theoretically could just spam WarLight with terrible maps exactly for this purpose. Imagine if anonym had this idea...
