I must have upset them somehow today. Apparently I've played 15 games:
3 Orinoco
4 Bayou (albeit 1 as Ports)
2 Texas
And 2 Rockies which are a pain with any civ. Perhaps they're telling me to stop playing Ottoman :/

Ok sob-story over.

I was actually just looking at my games saying the same thing. 4 games in bayou today. It seems some maps tend to pop up more on certain days. I wonder how random it really is.

You don't like your job, you don't strike. You go in every day and do it really half-assed. That's the American way.

I have the oddest luck with maps, usually when I use QS, I find myself on the lamest maps and usually repeatedly. The other day I had 3 games on Hispaniola in a row IIRC.

If you look at the recent games played, often you'll see things like:

Hispanola
Hispanola
Hispanola
California
California
carolina
Hispanola
California

Though the selection is random, often it seems to like one map...

I get so much texas to the point where it makes me not play much QS.

Whenever the map gods are angry with me they put me on water maps. My game freezes if I use boats.

My teammate and I always seem to get Araucania, Rockies, and Yukon. Better those maps than some though...

Im pretty sure Quicksearch ISNT random, the most maps people normally get are hispanolia and orinoco. It used to be great plains and yucatan but now those are all but extinct!

I seem to be getting a lot of NWT and Andes. No complaints here! Although it's true, the last time I played on Yucatan was before Ender_Ward left (was trying some tashunke shenanigans he suggested).

Also, been a very long while since I've played on Sonora. Is it even a standard map anymore? Not that I miss it overmuch...

I nearly always get great plains against France, Sioux, and Russia. I have never gotten Yukon (my favorite map), but I half the time I get Sonora, Pampas, or Painted Desert when I play Ottoman.

last 4 times I played SIoux I got Bayou, Texas, Bayou, Bayou



I think that was part of what pushed me to stop playing rated games lately. I need a break from a) civs that are map-dependent and b) no hunts anyway
