This got my attention. Back when I was playing GOTM (3, 4 years ago?), I remember getting very frustrated when there was a long run of maps with NO HILLS around the spawn point. (Guess it still bugs me, I am POUNDING on my keyboard... )
Anyway, if you have an opinion about any game components or settings that have been missing, please use the stickied thread "News: Game of the Month for Civ V - feedback appreciated" to post ideas, suggestions, or requests for future games.
