Hey everyone, we've got some fantastic news for you!

Remember how you players always asked for custom maps and we always said "never; not possible!". Well, we changed our minds and decided to implement custom maps, whatever it takes. And a lot of time it will certainly take, so please don't ask for estimations - just trust us, we're working hard on it right now.

We cannot give you a lot of details, but there will definitely be an editor where you can upload your own map image and then draw country borders. You will be able to add all country and city data, and add your own units, fully customized. Scenarios will remain similar to what they are now, but will be able to be based on custom maps as well.

As you can imagine, this will infuse a lot of interesting opportunities into the game - you will be able to add a map/scenario based on Game Of Thrones, Lord Of The Rings, WWI/WW2, American Civil War or even a space-based map (why not?).

Because we're now fully concentrated on this massive undertaking (which feels very much like creating a new game from scratch), there won't be any big updates for a while. But then - BAM! - a huge one! So, be patient

Cheers!
Ivan & Amok

Wow. nice to see a development as large as this.

If this comes we can make custom maps that are balanced and may even be eventually added to normal selection?

this will be great, I will be the first to upload a brand new world map with extra cities, and balanced continents...!

"add your own units"

How will strategies be played in these custom maps? Would they be completely ignored if the custom map has these customised units? Or would we be able to customise them also so that they would be boosted or nerfed when using certain strategies?

Strategies and upgrades will work in custom maps as well. All units will have generic roles (main attack, secondary defence, support, etc.) to which strategies and upgrades will be applied.

What about an competitive ranking system this would be way more important.
I seriously don't understand why you guys still don't work on this and now you even say you won't do anything but developing this custom maps thing for the next time. Damn this is complete bullshit.

Lol, we knew that even with this piece of news, some individuals will still be bitching.

I got it. Keep it casual so the newbies get what they want as long as they play the game (usually one month), while not implementing something really interesting which would be appreciated by the majority of the experienced players. Seems like the concept of the future to me. Oh, wait, isn't this what the big companies like Blizzard do as well?

Do you consider the players that disagree with you as newbs? Because if so it will be hard to find those experienced players you're talking about.

No, with newbs I mean new players and people like you who, even though here from the early beginning, are still terribad in 1v1. With experienced players I mean people like TopHats, Nateballer, Vaglneer and suchlike, who already expressed the need for a ranking system multiple times.


You sound like the 12-year old MLG community on Waypoint. Please, organize your own 1v1 system then. Nobody has ever wanted it. You and Cow are the only players I've ever seen ask for such a thing. Casuals are a minority on this game, as are "Hardcore" players. The average player looking for a good time is the majority. So please, do not say "the game is for casuals"- it's built on what the fans want. I seriously doubt a "skillful" 1v1 system is ever a good thing, it sounds like something a 9-year old on Modern Warfare 2 would challenge me to after I beat him.

There is no need for a 1v1.
The Casual audience is a minority.
The Hardcore audience is a minority.
The fans know what's right, and the admins know what's right. Trust them, not the player who spends 24 hours a day on this game.

Just because I've choosen to play in a different way than you did that doesn't mean I can't have my opinion on this, which, by the way, is positive to create a more competitive system, as I've expressed in proper threads, that were originally meant to discuss about it, not this case, by the way, and may this serve as a warning to you.

Anyway, one thing doesn't exclude the others and, altought I respect your opinion (and even agree with your suggestion), it makes absolutely no sense to critizice one good feature just because there are other things to work on.

In my point of view, and from what I discuss and read in the forums, this update is more awaited than ELO, for example (which doesn't mean, again, that it won't be done). I strongly recommend you to separate what you classify as the community opinion of what it's actually yours.

I'm pretty sure I could beat any AW player in a 1v1 if I wanted to actually spend my time on that style of game, but I decided to have fun instead and that is what this update is all about, by the way

I didn't mean to criticize the update itself. Actually I'm looking forward to it since I believe that things like mirror-maps would be a great addition to the game. I just think that, as I outlined in my previous posts, the ranking system would be a more important addition to the game. However I see your guys point when you say that more players want the customized maps, this still doesn't change my opinion on the timing though.

Oh and I don't really see why you needed to post this last paragraph. Probably to tease me? Well, I strongly suggest you take a look at your duel-list again, since it has this funny empty spot where it says -273.


Then why are your panties in a bunch about the update if you just said you're looking forward to it?

To answer some of those highly concerned about ELO - yes, it will be implemented, as we've mentioned many times before, and it will probably happen around the same time as custom maps. So please be patient, we just had to postpone it because of those massive changes in game mechanics that's going to come with custom maps.

By the way, ranked games do not have to be limited to 1vs1s, there should also be team games where it is up to the players to make fair teams based on individual player's rankings.

In an ideal situation there would be a hopper where players are randomly matched against another player, of comparable skill level, on a random map with random game settings.

These settings would of course have to be limited and would be subject to change on a regular basis.

5k, 10k, 15k for 1 country.
10k, 15k for 2 countries
15k, 25k for 3 countries

(Acqui and I have been experimenting, and these games are really fun.)

Based on community input we could leave out certain maps like Pacific and Oceania. (Maps created by the community could also be included)

If we combine the idea of a ranking system and custom maps, the possibilities are endless.

I am kind of babbling at this point, I will put some more refined thought into this and make a broader post.
