Its not great.
You should be able to block servers or block certain nationalities. Playing vs any South americans right now is a massive disadvantage (50 ping vs 400). Impossible to micro vs etc. The game is completely different when its not played on Brazil server
They need to bring back the option to resign before minute 1. Every game I play vs south americans is on brazilian server where they have 50-80 ping and i have 400 ping, Basically forces you to prewall everything because you cant quick wall against man at arms 11
Simple as this.
I personally wont play anything but: Arabia, Arena, Golden Pit and Killimanjaro. I tried the others and it made me gag.
Playing **** maps or maps you dont like for the sake of variety... get ****ed, this isn't charity.
To be exact on what I said earlier, Mayans is strong, annoying to play against but not completely OP like Aztec is.
We in the past had two civs who could finally punish these lame ass meso picks: franks and persians and both of these were nerfed.
Most of the games vs meso goes like this
Its well known that the majority of conpetitive players prefer arabia. There is a reason why in Voobly it was that, or arena, and a few sprinkled megarandom games.
Modders, twitch viewers, AI lovers, HD steam bots, achievement chasers dont matter. They will be gone in a year from now to play...
I will quote the famous german Homers84: i, and a substantial amount of players have zero interest in fulfilling your or others wild map fantasies.
Two queue is just fine, one for the wild maps lover and one for arabia.
