I love maps. Love love love maps. I spend a stupid amount of time exploring the world on Google Maps, and no, that’s not a typo. Not Google Earth, Google Maps. I love following roads and seeing how places are tied together.
I love MMO maps. Love love love MMO maps. You could show me a random MMO map and I could probably instantly tell you what game it’s from. There are many styles of maps, from the ugly to the beautiful, from the technical to the hand-drawn, and some work better than others. I feel that a truly great map marries functionality with aesthetics.
What makes an MMO map amazing for you?
