What maps do u hate the most that u will just not play?

Mine are Rockies, Great Lakes, and of course Amazonia.

I dont like either of these maps because the team that controls the middle will usually win, of this is not the case all the time, but it still helps A LOT.

Rockies. I hate it.

All the others are fine (even Bayou, if you're not Ottoman, heh).

I love bayou.

I hate rockies, I just don't like the way everything in the centre looks tiny, and as a slower civ its harder to control the centre :P

wow, this is basically copied from Age Sanc. Intensionally or unintensionally...

"The lembas had a virtue without which they would long ago have lain down to die. . . . this waybread of the Elves had a potency that increased as travelers relied on it alone and did not mingle it with other foods.

well obviously all ottos hate bayou

all brits hate great plains.

all brits, dutch,and french probably enjoy new england.

i like sageuany, a lot of room, a little water, my favrotie natives,(cree/nootka), its a fun map.

we all hate rockies, deer that dont move, that middle, that valley thats supposed to be great for treasures but yukon is 10 times better.

seriosuly 4 girzzly bears for a cdb? uh, how come on other maps its 4 black bears? and only 3 polar bears...

the 2 grizzly bear 30xp treasure, wtf!?!?

yeah amazonia and carib...lets not get started.

and for a sidentoe, ive never won with ottos on hispanola, i just suck at water booms, suck hard, i suck like a gay vampire.

Have you noticed that almost every single treasure in the valley on Rockies gives you something that just helps you get more treasures? There are always the jaguar cub, at least one native scout, usually a native warrior, a bear cub or two, and sometimes a wolf. Whats the point? There are almost no "normal" treasures that just give you resources. Whats the point of getting a treasure hunting army only to increase the size of your treasure hunting army.

Everyone hates rockies because:

-the annoying cliff that goes all the way around the edge which all hunts seem to move towards no matter what you do
-the cliff which pointlessly restricts movement from the centre of the map
-the lack of huntables
-the lack of decent treasures
-the huntables in the centre refuse to move
-the lack of mines
-the fact that you run out of resources in the first 10 minutes if you don't control the centre, this is also why games on rockies don't tend to last very long

Favorite: Total War 3, saguenay, hispaniola (1337 native rush), new england and Yukon.

Unkown is tight except for the huge lack of food

craps: Great Plains: I seem to ALWAYS play this map,Amazonia (game time=2 hrs) and rockies, Adam42 stated why..

Hispanola

Agreed.

And Rockies, the map is just ... annoyingly wierd, and how ES attempted to make the game more realistic by allowing the center of the map being further zoomed out is just annoying and just adds to the lag IMO. And the treasure situation is exactly how you put it Seph. The hunting is really annoying too, for some reason. It's never random enough too because everything is almost always in the same place except for some trees and gold mines and treasures, the land scape is identical from game to game though. IDK I just feel it's less random and fun than other maps.

Rockies has unbalanced hunting, messed up treasures, but I do (as one of the few who do) like the zoomed out area...
