Are you sure? What about interaction with Ferries? That has potential to be very annoying.

Very nice, thank you for the effort!

Early thoughts:
The Bets expansion sounds really cumbersome and I can already picture the cans of worms it will open.  ::)

The Ukraine promo tile is beautiful and the two rules are great!  :(y)

Bridge is a road, so no it cannot lead nto a field.

Meaning if you thought spiel 2022 was going to be hard to get...

Can't argue about the signposts, but a lesser known fact about the darmstadtium is that it is built around a medieval fortification (which you can see in the tile), so it is not simply a modern building in Carcassonne. Maybe this will ease your dislike.

It looks quite impressive! Can't wait for the chip rules.

The ugliness!  :o

And also worthless.
It would be, but there are the special variant rules  8) saving this item.

Great news, thanks! Nice that HiG is doing another charity product  :(y)

...but I always imagine an invisible UFO parked at the crossroads blocking the way  ;D
It helps me sleep soundly at night.

The tile that wolnic posted (the first one) is actually quite nice! I like the yin-yang visual.

I like to say that Carcassonne is a visual game.
When in doubt if something connects or is finished, just look at the board.
So for that reason, my least favourite tile is the 3 FRRR tile from CC1. The tile shows 1 road with 3 different branches, but the clarifications told us that they are 3 separated branches. I don't like that, and therefore I don't like this tile

Well that's the thing! It is a visual game and the visuals were very clear to the point that I would not even need the rules to understand the connectivity on that tile. But it is the dubiou wording of the supporting rules, which introduces the silliness!

Also, whenever I hear the words "Carcassonne is a viual game", all I can think of is...

They are 1 field - see how dumb it is?  ::)

EDIT:  looked at C2 rules and it seems the fields should be separate by the ZMG rules. That makes me dislike this tile even more because for years the wording was extremely misleading and it took a publisher specific C2 upgrade of the rules to clear it up!  >:(
I don't like being misled by badly written official rules, especially when the tile itself is clear enough already via its artwork. This tile-rule disconnect is now the reason I don't like the tile...

For me it would have to be the crcr tile with tunnel from Exp. 3. The fact that the the roads are connected is logical, the fact that the fields on either side are continuous because the road does not touch the city is visually indicated. But the fact that the fields are connected even across the tunnel is absolutely ridiculous!
It is a forcefull rule that goes against the visual representation of the tile.

I also don't like the cloiter in city tile from Exp. 8, because unlike the one from Exp. 3, this one does not have the patch of green around the cloitser ilustration makking it really dificult to make out.

La Porxada, because it is not a real tile (I mean a real printed tile), and I don't like the rules that goes with it...
Fair enough. Does that mean that you also dislike CutCassonne because they're also not real tiles?

I do like La Porxada but dislike CutCassonne.

Isn't this just some fan made content?
Nope, but it is unofficial.

And my favorites are the Russian promos for they are beautiful and full of history
Same here.

I am interested to know which tile (or tiles) in the long history of Carcassonne is your least favorite by far. I am not talking about expansions in general, but about individual tiles. The reasons behind the dislike can be anything from the tile configuration, usefulness, to artwork or even a compatibility with the rules. Express yourself! And maybe others will make you see your hated tiles in a new better light ^-^
