    No War of the 12 Kingdoms? I don't know if I've suggested this before but in case I haven't its a good King Leopold game that deserves more attention.

    I want to explain the game hosting methods once again: The bot we regularly use is configurated to connect to Northrend and Azeroth at the same time. So if you join from either, it does not matter, you get thrown into the same game. An extra tool makes the bot connect to Garena, too. Garena is not really the best option in this day and age but if anyone needs to be there, say it and we will try. A major problem is that the RPG channels that I used before are now all stuffed with permanent hosting bots, which take up the limited amount of slots (20) you can see in the LAN menu at a time, so our bot's games will hardly be visible there, hence why we need to go to other channels. If we do not have Garena users present and want to play certain known maps, we may alternatively task a bot from makemehost.com. They have like 40 bots there currently, that host on demand. You pick a map from the list and the bot hosts it for you. May have better performance, I do not know, but sometimes our bot causes issues and in case I am not present, someone else can easily create a game.

    No Blood Tournament?! You have to get that map, it's amazingly fun, although it might kill most low-end PC's in its endless massacres :D Add it to the list please :3
    Btw, i might consider joining this weekend, see you there :)

    F.A.Q.

    Why is my map not in the list?
    The list could be missleading at first sight, because one could think that these maps are going to be played.
    That is not case. They are recommendations of maps that have been played multiple times before during funmap evenings.
    The listed maps just show what kind of maps you can expect to be played.

    Can you add my (or this) map to the list?
    Certainly not. Read the first question.

    Can you play my map?
    Yes we can. But won't do it... unless you participate on the funmap evening.
    (Multiplayer and the english ingame language are recommended as well.)

    Why don't you use the hive chat?
    Because it is not an hiveworkshop event. Using the hive channel would mean that one has to be registered on THW
    which does not apply to a great number of the participants.
    You can bring your friend without him or her being forced to register anywhere.
    Just join this chat room.

    How do you host?

    That's not necessary but beneficial because then at least one of the players has the desire to play the map and you can take the initiative and show your good will.

    Why don't you use the hive chat?

    Also to not disturb the other chatters there, this is not even my domain.

    The listed maps just show what kind of maps you can expect to be played.

    At some point, I need to come up with a new system. Someone requested we could vote for the favorite maps but the forum does not quite allow mass poll activity, it should be outsourced to sync with other sites, too, which may overexert some users again if they need to follow the links. And anyway, as I have reflected some months ago, public ratings are not rarely flawed.

    So what you are aiming for is a list of suitable maps for funmap evenings
    in general.
    In addition, a poll should be able to use this list to simplify the
    search for the next playable map.
    An optional function for this list could be being sortable by player
    count, popularity and genre.
    Popularity would be the main factor which can be influenced by the poll.
    The poll should be working only during a specific funmap evening.
    Also adding new maps to the poll during a funmap evening would be
    beneficial.

    Overall, the factor popularity requires clarification in this case.
    How does one achieve that general popular maps won't prevent maps which
    participating players realy would like to play?
    So, one solution would be resetting the poll after each game only leaving
    behind the list of maps which got extended during poll before.

    But this solution would mean that one has to vote over and over again,
    what can be perceived as overexert.
    As a solution for this, one could make a poll before the actual funmap
    evening event where users can vote their favourite.

    But then again it is possible that the previous voted favourites outvote
    maps that players actually want to be played. In the end one would
    have a circle.
