Could you please fix the MotM older results standings? the month of Dec Mongol Empire is missing.
And any chance of having a complete MotM data history of all past MotM's like there was with the MotW?
Also can you please change next month's map to something else? Like maybe my map from last year? The Great War? If you insist on it being Rome make it IRE at least? :panic:

Mongol Empire HD result has been restored there.

Earlier MOTM results have also been added to the older MOTM page.

Imperium IIb is a great map that doesn't get played much, I'm looking forward to comparing it to Expletus more next month...

yea LF is a great map maker no doubt, yet if you think this is such a great map then why not host it as well as IRE?

Any EtA on when the maplab will FINALLY release my last map?

Any chance of getting my map badge added to my rankings pages for Sava also?

I'd like to give Italian Unification a try. Looks like it would be fun with human.. but I've installed it and don't get the theme (Mac Sierra). Suggestions?

Barring that, how about some Chinese Checkers*? :smt077


*Not really suited to a whole month, I know.

What about a new idea? I have a crazy one :-)

What do you think about a monthly theme instead of a fixed MOTM map?

E.g. a castle theme? We could put some (not too many, lets say 3-5) castle maps in a winner picks room and all these 5 maps count towards the MOTM ranking then this month. Winner can pick the next map. Next month we look for a new theme (not thought in Details, but maybe: classic based maps, american history maps, winter games, and so on. lux has over 800 maps out of a variety of categories) ...
But it is just an idea - i have no clue if this could work and i have not thought in details. But it hurts to see MOTM being not existent at the moment. People always say, they want to play a different maps than bio, but nobody is in the MOTM room. It is also not very motivating for mapmakers to create new maps if they aren't even played a month long.

And maybe we would need to do some more promotion for MOTM. E.g. lets do a "manic monday MOTM" with a general raw boost for MOTM games. A moderator could be there, to help newbies understanding the basics like cards and income Settings an so on. I know, raw bonus is a hot point, but on monday it would not really affect the chase but could give an extra motivation to start into the new week :-)

Ok so much about my crazy thoughts to make MOTM more attractive.

I've queued up Italian Unification as the December MOTM...

Try a map un-install, "recache" in the map search box, re-install to fix theme issues.

I second Fips' idea and suggest Castles for February. I suggest an amendment that it be four rooms total on the Sillysoft roster (no biodeux and no ire or other maps): a. two rooms with small castles maps b. two rooms with large castles maps. 5 each. I suggest leaving individual hosting open in case players want to get away from the castles for a bit.

I might also suggest there be 3 castles guilds competing for the castles prize for the month. The teams would be populated at random and get walk-ons in random order. I might.
