Some players will bitch about bonus drops, others will see it as a nice move on your part. Like the throne in Siege or Down town in Montreal. I love these types of maps as it really does happen in life and does not sanitise maps. But you also have - PVH, CRS and SAO stations. So in reality you have 4 3 region bonuses that can be dropped for a bonus of 2.
i had forgotten about these 3x3 terminuses having to have neutrals.
so yes that makes another 4 neutrals added to the already existing 10. - now 14.
The golden numbers say the next one down from 104 is 89 (apart from 5/7 player games). Both of these sizes are not in play much so not to worry. So by adding in 4 extra neutrals, one per 3 bonus region (line Q
, stations PVH, CRS & SAO).
from 89 to 104 is 15 neutrals, not 4.
i was hoping to get a full golden number like 104.
so, 114 total, to 89 makes 25 neutrals.
By placing neutrals on BSB and BUE stations (11) i get 14+11= 25 neutrals.
That means there is no need to alter the drop or max numbers and this can play as a relatively normal map (except for all the neutrals)
I have placed a bonus on each of BSB and BUA and this can be altered. Just means N line has one start which isn't a totally bad thing.
