[POLL] Square Map vs. Round Map for AoE2:DE

For AoE2:DE, do you prefer AoE2’s square map, or would you want AoE3’s round map instead? I mean the shape of the game map and, of course, the corresponding mini-map; not just the mini-map.

Which map shape do you prefer?

  • SQUARE Map and Mini-Map (AoE2 style)
  • ROUND Map and Mini-Map (AoE3 style)

A square map may be imbalanced for odd number of players.
But a circular map is always balanced for any number of players.

Never played AOE3, but that parallelogram seens strange. Maybe it’s better to have a round man, but we’re used to the square one, and that’s should remain like that
