    If you play Debates you might know that the map changes theme frequently. So, I'm opening this thread to hear suggestion of possible future themes for the game. The theme reflects the background and the debate of the week. What should be my next theme? If you have a nice idea, please, tell me. :)

    DEBATES: CHRISTMAS.

    DEBATES: NATURE.

    DEBATES: SPACE.

    DEBATES: PRIVACY.

    Rodrigo, I like debates, but i don't think changing themes isn't going to really kick it up much.

    If you want debates to really break out of where it's at you need to add something different. You've done other mods with actual gameplay, find a way to merge debating with gameplay, bring the core strengths of starcraft 2 into your mod like other top mods do.

    It could be sorta like battle chess: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cTlVP5cn0nw When a peice is taken you get to see a little skirmish between the peices, half the fun of the game was watching these cool little cinematics. If someone loses a round of the debate soundedly there could be a close up of an SCV being ripped to shreds by ultralisks with the debaters name over their head. I think you could come up with some pretty funny montages to show how badly people got beaten in the debate, or how close it was.

    There could even be themes, like a debate about abortion, if someone wins big time on the pro side, maybe show a bunch of babies running around and have marines come in and massacre them (not saying you should do this, just an idea! haha)

    You suggestion is good, but Debates has 470 thoughts. I cant have an animation for each one. :P

    Today I spend 2 hours inviting 300 people to debate, and the only thing I got was "fuck you" 10 times and 3 players reporting me for spam. I never never spent more than 1 hour waiting in lobby in Warcraft 3, not even in the worst map of the world.

    Thanks for your suggestions, but I'm pretty much done with Debates. The last theme being "death" is already expressing that.
