So I tend to not play on maps like pangaea or archipelago because knowing whether there will be one big landmass or many small ones takes away from the feeling of exploration and the need to discover what style of play will be effect on any given map. So sometimes I play continents because that has a greater amount of uncertainty and surprises in terms of how many continents and how big the size difference between them. Needless to say, my favorite map types are fractal and shuffle since those maps cause me to have the greatest uncertainty about the map and hence greater sense of discovery in exploring the map. But I'm having trouble deciding whether I like Fractal or Shuffle better. There is some quality about fractal maps that I really enjoy though I cannot quite say what that quality is whereas the shuffle maps feel even more random but sometimes that overly random quality can break immersion of exploring rather than improve it. So lets see what the poll results tell us about the popularity of these maps. Also, if anyone has information about the algorithms or processes that go into generating either of these types of maps I'd be keen to hear about that.
