Once again, our good friend فيصل - 1416 has copied another player's map and played it off as his own.

His map:
https://www.warlight.net/Map/25355-Black-Sea-Region-East-Mediterranean

Is a zoomed in version of https://www.warlight.net/Map/16045-Tale-Four-Cities by zxctycxz

How can stuff like this be allowed to happen?

I think since it's a way smaller map it's allowed to be almost identical and you have to be fair that most regions are how you would make them into bonusses as well since they are just logical bonusses.

The Anatolian territories on that map don't perfectly match the administrative divisions of modern-day Turkey, the Byzantine Empire, or the Sultanate of Rum. The stuff on the map is neither real nor the only logical division- not even the first logical division that would naturally jump to your mind.

There was clearly a lot of decision-making and design in there by the original map-maker that's been blatantly stolen. And no, you can't just copy part of the map and say it's okay because you didn't copy all of it.

C'mon, man, don't excuse this type of behavior.

You really don't get more blatant than that. Majority of bonuses seem identical. The territory outlines ARE identical, with the exception of eliminating Constantinople. Territory names appear to be identical. Even the 'ferry' routes linking non-bordering territories are identical.

It doesn't get much lazier than that.

Quick question: Do you put names in quotation marks if they aren't names? What are the parameters for putting someone's name in quotation marks when you reply to them?

I am not 1416, but I think I can answer that question:
Karl is a name, while TheOnlyPie is a bunch of English words. Maybe they put such names in quotation marks to avoid confusion? I dont know honestly.

Edit: Stupid typos ._.

ALL OF YOU. BREAK IT UP.

Look, we all know that Squiggles steals maps. Stop complaining about it. Instead, simply bring it to Fizzer's attention and let him handle it. I'm honestly sick of seeing a forum every 2 minutes about how he's stealing another map. Just let Fizzer take care of it and RELAX. Ollie himself can talk to Fizzer if he has a problem with it. Aside from that it's nobody else's business. I'm honestly really sick of all of this crap. This should be between Ollie, Fizzer, and Squiggles. Let's leave it that way.

That's not what I'm saying. What I'm saying is people are endlessly complaining about the same crap over and over and over and it needs to stop, because it's obviously getting us nowhere.

I'm with Knyte on this, I'm allowed to complain about something, even if it's been complained about before. That's pretty much the definition of these forums in case you haven't noticed.

Knyte sums up what most of the forum whiteknights think. Of course someone needs to complain. Deal with it.

We all know Anonym is toxic beyond shitposting, he upvotes his own map with alts and downvotes others', inflating and deflating visibility at his own pleasure. And despite saying he "learned his lesson", he just did it again.

The map has a whole series of 1/5s from probably anyone with more than 3 brain cells, but it's rating flew from 1.8 (it's value when I first gave it the rating) to 3.2 in the span of a less than a day. And all the comments, aside from one, are negatives, with positive "found this review helpful"s.

@Robin: it's clearly getting us somewhere. I don't know if you're reported stuff to Fizzer before, but he's busy and misses a lot of it unless you actually go out of your way to make sure he notices.

Plus it's not like these threads are even noticeable under the piles of shitposting. If you want to clean up the forum, start with that.

anyways, your map is absolute shit 1416. The bonuses make no sense.

I urge everyone to do what the community did to his last map; down-vote it to the bottom.

If you created a map, you wouldn't want anyone to use it, unless they ask for consent to use it and only use it if map maker allowed you to use it. You're breaking Copyright otherwise. You could go to court or be sued if you were found out.
