Definitely is nice to see a new feature introduce some new tactics and strategy into the mix. :D

It's jut like Risk here in Brazil where they took the game and worsened the rules and created the more inbalanced game ever. Defence plays whith 3 dices and all. It's called "WAR".


It's risk so it may be good after all.

Based on there currently being 44 Trench Warfare medals awarded to 43 people, I would guess that yes, you are first to silver. Congrats! Go for the Gold Ollie!

From the MapRank thread...

I haven't heard about one, and considering that it will be quite easy to add, and the response to the previous competition was not huge, I would be surprised if a new competition were to be held for this.


Emphasis added... sounds like it should be an easy change to maprank... so hopefully, yes.

After playing a number of these games I have to say I think it makes for entirely crappy and one-sided games.

It may not be a stellar 1vs1 setting (which all of your 16 games seem to be), but with even 3 players (and more probably) it is quite fun I think. Try it again, this time with a few more players.

Agreed. The drop and first turn are even further emphasized in [strike]Adjacent Attacks[/strike] Trench Warfare for 1v1 games. It's more balanced in teams games, and particularly the "starting point" maps become very interesting with multiple players.

Try an 8-player on Feudal Epic.

Yes. 8p Feudal Epic or 8p New World are full of strategy and enjoyment.
Welcoming the long awaited Trench Warfare Setting (Previously Adjacent Attacks).
