Season XXVII - Elitism Africa - start practicing!: 1/6/2017 04:33:19

Season XXVII starts on Monday at midnight GMT! Check this link for that time in your own timezone or for a countdown: http://www.wolframalpha.com/input/?i=2017-01-09+midnight+gmt

It is definitely worth practicing this map, since it has a very unusual bonus system.

Check out these example games, or the linked WGL video where they discuss this template in depth:

Good luck!

You didn't need a twitch account to vote.

Must have been rigged - when I left there were already 87 votes for commanders.

Seasonal Ladder just got pulled into the 21st century? I like it Fizzer.

@Fizzer, could you post the vote results please.

@Pabse, it's free, why haven't you already?

After playing 2 games on the template I can now say this is the worst seasonal decision I witnessed so far.


    Template reasons

  • No knowledge transfer from and to other templates
  • Big disadvantage for every player who hasnt practised on the template - if your seasonal games are your first games on this template you are bound to do poorly
  • The colors are hard to differentiate
  • Also this:
    Sucks to be color blind.

  • The boni are hard to differentiate
  • No boni markers (or whatever you call them)

    Organisational reasons

    Seasonal ladder is a fromat with 300~350 players. There were 33-34? votes. So roughly 90% of the participating players didnt get a chance due to the vote being on an unannounced live stream. This results in a small group dictating the rest to play a template called "Elitist Africa". What irony.


All that being said I quite like the new livestreams, I like that a vote happened, I even like most of the players that probably voted for the template, althogh it feels like those were the same players that, wouldnt it have been their weird template, would be the loudest to whine.

I will probably play this seasonal, learn a new template and have fun.

Happy new seasonal!

Super happy about africa beeing the seasonal template! If you never played it before, you better practise! After 3-5 games you should get the hang of it.

Linberson maybe you play 2 more games on it and you will see it's not really that hard ;) the template name is like that, because it's different from standard templates and you need practise games to understand how it works.

The polls where announced with a livestream for around 4-5 hours. At the end of the stream we could vote.

And how do you know, that you have to watch that livestream to know how to vote?
You are kidding me, right?

krunx the livestream was also named "vote on the next seasonal template" or something similar. i also made a thread on the Forum so eventually more People see it.

"Seasonal template poll in 4 hours!"

So I had 4 hours to notice, that I have to watch this livestream???

You cannot be serious about this. Usually we discuss/vote on the Forum and if somebody does want to change it, it would be important to announce this not just 4 hours before the decision is made.

You have to admit, that it was easy to miss this voting due to the lack of early information.

krunx we usually don't vote on the Forum, we usually don't vote at all. seasonal will also start sooner because of that quick voting process.

i completely agree it can be overseen easily. but we also spammed the Skype Chats with the voting link so if you are sleeping at that time, bad luck.

I have played 2 games on this befire, and I think I understand how to play it. It's an interesting feature but I agree with some problems:
- Colors for territories are, in some cases, too similar (reds especially).
- No easy way to know which territories are part of a bonus, especially if 2 of the same type are next to each other.

In normal games there is a box with the income of the territory and if you click on it you see all the territories in the bonus. I understand that there is no a fixed bonus-value, but maybe a box with a letter (for the bonus type, D for desert, for example) would help.

Right now I find more confusinf the colors and terrotories than the income system :/

Maybe better to correct a map to be better visual, instead of explanatory pictures?

I caught on to the stream but my problem was that the voting was at 2am local for me and had to get up at 6:15 to get ready for internship so i really had no time to stick around for when the voting was happening.
Anyway i'm not able to participate because i'm busy with all things for school right now but for the next time i think there should be made more consideration in how early it will get announced and at what time potential voting is (thursday on friday isn't the best for that imo)
