In ranked play, it becomes boring, that still same civilizations are repeatly played in specific maps.
As it is ranked, you should be able to play various civilisations in various map styles.
Current meta is - You see which map will be played and you can pick any civilisation.
My suggestion is:
When queed in 1v1 Match, you will see which map will be played and randomly get civilisations from which you need to pick one, you will play like this.
Your opponent gets the same option with same civilisation.
You still cannot see which civ picks your opponent.
For example you got queed to Arabia map and game randomise this selection for both players:
- Random pick.
You now have 1 minute to decide which civ to pick, or choose random pick, if you dont like any of the 3 offered.
In the same time your opponent will pick from the same selection.
In 2v2 it would be 4 + random
3v3 = 6 + random
4v4 = 7 + random.
- Great Idea
- No, it is better as it is now
- Good idea but should be done differently
I like the Idea, altough I would make a bigger pool of civs. Or maybe, just have the higher winnig civs gor that map ban for picking. I like to chose civ, because you have 35 options and you may feel like playing with a certain one. The thing is that some people only use 3 civs, one for a certain map, and that make things boring.
It’s a great idea though. I think it could be a little better, but sincerely, i wouldn’t know how to make it better 111111

Thank you for your opinion.
You say that you like choosing from civilisation. 3 randomize civilisation option or one full random civilisation gives comfort still choose one of the civ or go random if you dont like any of them.
Maye increasing from 3 to 5 wont be bad.

For this reason I suggest to make civ pool which will be randomly generated for each game, so for example you will not be playing against the same civs on maps
What I meant is i would mind to have a bigger pool of civs (up to ten, for example) as long is not the best civs(mayans/mongols/persians aaaalllll the time) But again, maybe it would kill the identity of the whole idea. Long story short, I really like you suggestion
Just have a button “go random if enemy goes random”
if both press it, you get random civ
if one of the player’s doesn’t press it, you play with your picked civ (which could still be random if you have the balls!)
The reason why it is a bad idea because there would be too many mirror matchups. Its also not fun to be bound to pick random civ if you dont like any of those 3 so I definitely disagree with this. Although credit for you because its a so original idea.
I understand. However I came with this idea because many mirror matchups becomes now too.
Sometimes I got sick to play 50% of matches on Arabia against Franks, on Island against Koreans, Italians and Vikings…etc.
Hm maybe instead of civ pool just make 2-3 bans for each player and then pick by players choice ?
