The default map has been ctf_Laos for the past three seasons, and the administrators feel that it may be time for a change for several reasons.

Firstly, it would add a bit of freshness to the league. As I mentioned, Laos has been the default map for the past several seasons, and we would like to keep things fresh and new instead of maintaining the constant repetition of a single map.

Secondly, a significant number of people believe that Alpha has an advantage over Bravo on Laos. Poop took a sample of about 50 matches over the course of the past season and determined that Alpha won 70% of the time. Now, this statistic could be entirely coincidental, but we felt that it was worth mentioning. Alpha's supposed advantage also seems evidenced by the fact that nearly every challenger team chooses Alpha on Laos when given the opportunity to choose their side. However, again, this could simply be coincidental.

Also, now that the latest version of Soldat has been released, we have a wider selection of maps than ever before, and a wider selection means many added possibilities for a new default map. All together, I believe that we have 19 options for a new default map.

Conversely, however, it's also worth noting that there have not been a significant number of problems with Laos while it has been the default map. There have not been many complaints about it, nor have many people voiced their concern that Alpha has a large advantage. Following this thought, it may be better to keep using Laos as it seems to work fine and get the job done. As they say, "If it ain't broke, don't fix it."

Although Laos is a fun map no matter what side I do believe Alpha has a slight advantage. For reasons of balance and even the change it up a bit I think a new map should be used, something with identical sides would be best like Ash. Maybe if a new is agreed upon by the majority a new poll for which map in particular could be put up.

I guess the next default map has to be symetrical.

I'm also for new map, sure Laos is one of the most funniest maps to play and one of the best maps but I think it should be replaced with mirrored map i.g maya2.

So we'll be back to playing Laos first, and not last? Jolly good. :\

Although I agree with the map changing, I also think that the numbers you put up for us are not trully convincing. That's my opinion but I'm based on my choices also, cause I don't mind playing laos either sides. However refreshing tiebreak map is a good idea. I vote for Voland! Smile

Yes, that's what we are considering. We will most likely use the most popular suggestions in this thread when deciding which options will be in the poll, so we hope that everybody throws out map ideas.

Make it a popular map, so there's some variation in the first two maps. That was the use of putting Laos as tb: think Nuubia ( advantage, woohoo ), Voland ( boring symmetry ), Ash ( always intense isn't it ), Conquest ( so everyone would train to be pwn and not have to play that shit! ).

Btw, the poll should be held when 1.4.2 is out, cause there are some map changes (eg: conquest down the drain).
