Ok, it seems that abandoned has such a big lead, it's hard to ignore... So the next battle will be about abandonment. But: I (or Jest@) will add a twist or limitation to this theme. So it will more likely be a subtheme of 'abandoned'.
If you want a better overall tendency overview, you might make a poll with 3 choose options ... that poll could be used for future reference for map battles, because everybody has more than one favorite choice I guess ... I mean I would accept more than just one theme, and so will the others.
I've started a new battle. Thanks to all for participating in this survey. The results are definitely something to take into account in the (near) future. Don't jump to conclusions about the next battle though..
