This "vote" is not a vote
  • it is a priority list that will never get closed
  • Select here the most importants in your opinion
  • You can change your votes any time

@Stratego (dev) any estimate on when this can happen? I know it's probably going to be a little while still. Over half the votes are for the same option, so it's obviously popular.

i will not promise anything - it is kind of hard task and dangerous too - there can come many uncontrolled maps into the game that i dont want.

imagine a map that has nothing but grass (or even worse:non joining terrain tiles) in the multiplayers games list - would ruin the game appearance

I'd suggest making them private matches only, and self deleting if they aren't joined in the time limit. Maybe even add a secondary lobby for them under "join custom match" to keep eyesores like that out of the regular lobby.

I do like the idea of custom match, make them separate from the normal game and when someone joins it downloads the map in once it's finished it deletes it, unless others want to copy it.

If not I would suggest working on this.
Make multiplayer games more online (game will not quit while other player plays - and u also can see other movement - within sight)
Now it could be called a real time strategy game.

can be but little cumbersome imho.

what about making it the normal mapmarket way?
- you cn design and send to market random maps too
- i will accept if they are ok
- if ok than anyone can make matches out of it

?

Accepting map.

But it might be worth it, unless it's too hard or take a while to make.

I mean it may take some time for accepting map by stratego.

The problem with having to accept maps for public use is that sometimes were going to want temporary or unfair games. For example, viewtopic.php?f=66&t=4549 this topic could be played out. We wouldn't want maps of two fixed, immutable armies sitting around on the market, as they will probably have only one outcome for two players of the same skill. Especially as we designed armies around defeating the previous one.

Why not social currency to encourage the community to make and approve good maps? like spiceworks or quora?

Getting paid for making Maps sounds like a great idea. I'm assuming you mean gems.

No not gems! Like from this article:
As Mahalo struggled to retain users, another Q&A site began to boom. Quora, launched in 2010 by two former Facebook employees, quickly grew in popularity. Unlike Mahalo, Quora did not offer a single cent to anyone answering questions. Why then, have users stayed engaged with Quora but not with Mahalo, despite its monetary rewards?

In Mahalo’s case, executives assumed that paying users would drive repeat engagement with the site. After all, people like money, right?

However, Quora demonstrated that social rewards and the variable reinforcement of recognition from peers proved to be a much more salient motivator. Quora instituted an upvoting system that reports user satisfaction with answers and provides a steady stream of social feedback. Quora’s rewards have proven more attractive than Mahalo’s because the incentive to answer a question is driven by the anticipation of social, not financial, reward. When it comes to online communities, the need to connect and contribute turns out to be a more powerful motivator than collecting cash.
So people gain recognition for building and reviewing and approving good maps. A map gets built, then people upvote or downvote it. If the map gets enough upvotes then it can be implemented. People gain recognition or are upvoted for making good maps and upvoting good maps. People who have high recognition can implement maps easier or have more say with their upvotes.

A system like that.

yes, like the five star function in comments in market maps, may b a new place where maps made for multiplayer games r placed, people can download them for free, play hot seats games with them to see if they r balanced, and then upvote or recommend them to b placed in random maps section, i think it will work plus make it a lot easier for stratego to implement good maps, there should b a help section explaining wat is player's responsibily wen they want to download a free map from that particular place


also let players who have grant or right to b map designers, have a higher priority in their reviews than the average player so that even if hundreds of 'bad' players, or one evil player who makes hundreds of fake accounts :lol: just to upvote his own map, wont b able to put it in if one map designer says no or gives bad review :)

Nope cool guy will always stay higher than us ;)

And don't forget the last say goes to stratego, who might test it if a map designer recommends
