This era is marked by events such as the end of the wave of new mappers, and by the challenging of the status quo of Mervue's style, such as occupied land introduced by MapAnimator, which is slowly attracting mappers to use, and more scenarios. At this point, mappers have become less active, with some more focused on Alternate History, or historical animations of major events/wars.
While that is so, some mappers have been getting more subscribers. Back in the independent era when JarJar99 and Ethan had about 100 to 300, now MapAnimator, 99Batran, DisturbedFan1100 and MrOwnerandPwner also have over 100, since mapping is now attracting more and more subscribers.
A possible new era, the Cultural Era has been predicted, signifying that is era could be coming to a close.
