I'll be honest I do like the map. But I get pissed when I lose to an early tower war and I generally just log off and stop playing it for the day.

Chop was super frustrating for me for a long time.. I always face away from enemy if I can. If I can hold a chopper off long enough to get gold i have a lot better shot. So I go for defense and focus on fast gold.

The biggest hurdle is just figuring out the chopping pattern. And being OCD about making sure every peon is clearing 2 trees at a time

When there is no now game sure. The early stage needs more variety for hops and strategy.
The best version I ever played with Choppy had Water and Jugs and destroyers were useful for destroying farms
and added more excitement I felt. People are uncomfortable with change though.... If you loose the early tower war
there should be a peon you can sap out of brick and rehop him to kill opponents farms or rebuild your city, a second
chance would give you something to do instead of just watching the rest of the time.

I definitely think being able to lose so quickly is chops biggest flaw.

U missing out. Chop farms cool as fuck once u get the first 3-4 mins of the game down.. after that alot of the typical gow fundamentals come into play.
