Introducing Mapgen Week on Ladder

Nah can't change the map generator name the name is hard coded in too many places 😜

@sheikah Well albeit it doesn't have your name on it, I haven't heard anyone complain about the map gen. It's truly an amazing contribution to FAF and I appreciated heavily, it really adds freshness and it leads to creative engagements in competitive scenes. Thanks for your hard work!

Let’s rename it to "Neroxis and Sheikah Map Generator". And while we’re at it let’s rename the faf client to "Downlords and Axels and Brutus’ and Sheikahs and All those other guys FAF Client"

Praise Neroxis when mapgen is good, blame Sheikah when something is wrong with it. This is the way

sounds great.
Unfortunately I won't be around to play that one week.,
Don't restrict it to high rated players.

This sounds like fun, but I agree that there needs to be a bulletin in the matchmaking tab. I'm only over on the forum at all because of the connectivity issues recently.

Fundamentally I support anything that can spice up 1v1 and 2v2 to breathe some life into them.

@LinusTech that's an idea we can look into. Currently it's an item on the news page and when the event actually starts the maps listed in the matchmaker map pool will update show mapgen only.

It's time
turn it on 🙂

Mapgen Week is now live on Ladder!

The 1v1 ladder map pool is only 5x5 and 10x10 Mapgen for under 1000 rated players and only 5x5, 10x10, and 20x20 Mapgen for over 1000 rated players for the duration of the next week. Get laddering!

@archsimkat one bad (at least, for me) moment: since we have three maps in map pool, we have 33% of 20x20

At regular map pool that chance is much less

For now every third map is 20x20, and because its scale it takes much more time to play
(5x5 ends in 10 mins, 10x10 in 20mins, 20x20... 30-40 mins)
So we are playing 20x20 most of the time, that's unfortunate

The maps are not actually uniformly weighted. Although I believe right now it is 1:3:2 for 5km:10km:20km so still a 33% chance of 20km though.

I might actually play some ladder now

The thing is the mapgen makes its best maps at 20x20s so it makes sense to have a good amount of them.

I got a 20x20 map being 820 rated with an 820 rated opponent. Not complaining though, those were nice maps, very happy to finally play on 20x20 good maps.

all neroxis maps are good but still 33% of 20x20 is too much
imagine to play almost an hour and then lose it
1 hour of time, and for what?
5x5 and 10x10 value your time much more than 20x20, that's why i dont love what we have for now

pls make 20x20 less likely :C
too much time for too small amount of games

1

that's a personal issue,some doods play only 20x20's and enjoy it,so you'd probably get the same question towards you,why wasting their time if you want to play anything but 20x20?

2

33% does seem kinda high for ladder.

3

This discrimination against 5x5 maps on FAF is unacceptable. At least give them the same level of representation as 20x20 maps in ladder and tournaments.

3

We need to move past the trinary mindset. When is the mapgen going to make 8x8s, 12x12s, 8x12s, etc.?

@arma473 Only if we also get mapgen 1x20.

@askaholic The ratio of maps will be subject to change, which is why I didn't mention it specifically in the post.
