No matter if I'm going to participate or not, I would like to say that I consider "Dolomites" as a rather suboptimal choice: It is very unsymmetrical. But a tournament requires fair maps. How could the matches there be fair&balanced?
Furthermore I wonder when you are going to tell us more about the starting position colors. Blue vs red would be a good option for the Nile. I think that desert tournament would make only sense if it will be a match between east and west, but this still offers 4 possibilities.
Even harder would be the choice for elven forests. The starting positions of red and yellow look similar, so it would be similar to a periodic map. But I didn't think much more about that.
And have you already found the "other small autocrat map" or is there no alternative to this map here? https://wl.widelands.org/maps/tutorial-map/
So, any ideas?
I will give this more thought once I am sure there will be a tournament. that way, if we don't have enough players, I won't feel a fool for having done all the work for nothing. You know what they say about selling the bear's skin before killing the bear, and while I'm not superstitious, for this specific point I make an exception
regarding specifically dolomites, I playtested it to make sure everyone can make the same amount of buildings; and I was thinking to close some passes with immovables so that only two player position would remain, and use the map as a 1v1. but I'll consider it in more detail if it looks like a dinstinct possibility.
