    I am just curious what your favorite map size to play on is. For me it's "small" or "standard". I like maps that give me some room to grow but are still small enough to manage. I find "large" and "huge" to just be too big because they are a bear to get through especially if you are going for a domination or religious victory. Also, my computer is a bit slow so "large" and "huge" maps give me really slow turn times.

    Let me know why you pick a certain map size. :)

    I always play Standard or Small. I like it if there's only a small selection of civs involved, keeps playing against the civs more fresh than when you play with 12 or even more civs and see the same leaders in most games. I also like the shorter turn times on the smaller maps. And lastly, I do RelV every now and then, and while it's fun against 7 civs, it's tedious against 11+.

    Huge maps and epic speed is the way I roll. Makes some victories a bit of a pain though, I don't think I'll ever attempt to win a religious victory again.

    Large provides the best balance for me. Huge *implies* there's more land, but because of bad map generation (often 4-5 players will spawn within 20 tiles of each other - ON A HUGE MAP!!! good luck being the coastal civ in that scenario), there really isn't compared to Large, which has one fewer civ by comparison.

    I play standard ... because the lux per continent is not scaled to map size. If it was - I would likely be playing huge as thats all I played in civ v.

    I solve this by removing 2 civs and 3 - 4 city states, gives you more of a breather.

    Large, though I like Standard almost as much. Standard doesn't feel big enough, but my computer can handle it much better. Large feels about the right size, but does impact my turn times a bit, and takes forever to load the game.

    I still keep thinking I may build a new computer before Gathering Storm comes out. I really would like to play huge maps.

    Same, I can't vote, I prefer long games and use bigger maps than vanilla sizes.

    I find small map to be just right. A good number of civs to provide competition without making it an endless hassle to complete domination or religion victories. Usually civs are spread out enough to provide enough room to settle with maybe one early war with a neighbor which again seems just right. Also, any map Large or above does slow down my laptop a good bit in the late game. I'll play Standard if I know I'm going for Science or Culture victory but I don't find that larger maps necessarily provide more room to expand as they are just more crowded while Small map stil easily has enough space for 8-10 good size cities.

    I only play huge maps. All else just doesn't feel like I'm inhabiting a world.

    Bigger modded sizes. Usually the "Gigantic" size from my own mod (Larger Map Sizes), or if I'm playing YNAMP Terra, Enormous 2:1.

    Standard, no idea why it defaults to small, small is quite close and limits your ability to peace out.

    Usually standard, unless if I'm feeling like a shorter game.

    Although now that I think of it, I don't think I've even tried a game on anything larger. Maybe I should give it a shot sometime to see how it goes.

    I almost always play on standard. It's big enough to feel like a "real" world, but isn't too large to make everything tedious.

    I generally prefer larger map sizes. Colossal (160x100) is my favorite, although I usually have fun on most map sizes.

    Generally I play standard and standard, only because the game seems more balanced for these settings. I like to play large and epic or huge and marathon.
