This map isn't quenched. It was just an April's fool.

Fitz is still working on it.

The Final Forge period has concluded for the U.S. Senate Map. All objections have had their time. The Foundry and I hereby brand this map with the Foundry Brand. Let it be known that this map is now ready for live play (barring any Lack vetoes).

Conquer Club, enjoy!

I know it's quenched. It was a 2nd of April joke. :lol:

I wonder why it's taking so long to be put online.

Hey Fitz, it seems the XML is bad link, that is why it's been taking longer. Mind looking into it?

The link worked originally, and died later. Get your facts straight. :Wink:

LOL, lock the thread so I can't respond, eh?

If that's the case then I apologize. The way I would have imagined it you would have clicked on the link once and gotten the XML, and never needed the link again, but I don't know what goes on in the quenching process.

:) Just locked the thread because it is uneeded, as this is the respective topic for the map. Discussion is better here.

Played a RT, three player game a couple hours ago. Quite fun, but I think the rewards were a little skewed. In the second round, I took the Podium; in the 8th round, I took the game. The lobbies seem a little heavy in their boost, though. Only three territories can attack the lobbies, while five can attack the media holdings. Lobbies may have more territories, but their easier to defend. Giving lobbies a large boost seemed odd.

Still, it's a fun map, and my final romp through the Republican seats after finishing off the Liberal Lobby was simply delightful. And amusing. Despite the strange (and huge) bonuses, I really enjoyed it, and not just because I stomped all over friends. Certainly worth playing again...

...of course, the group I play with probably will add it to the Flick-can't-play list, along with Canada.

Great gameplay. now that I play it though I think that the podium should have a greater bonus because it is so key to the game

The bonuses are rather wonky aren't they... some continents are getting more than they should. Currently the statistics stand at:

Continent - No. of Territories/No. of Countries to Defend : Current Bonus
Democrats - 14/4 : 7
Republicans - 14/4 : 7
Print Media - 6/3 : 3
TV Media - 6/3 : 3
Liberal Lobby - 8/3 : 4
Conservative Lobby - 8/3 : 4
Podium - 9/3 : 6

First of all I think bonus for Podium is too much. The only difference between the lobbies and Podium is 1 territory, and yet there is 2 more bonus for Podium. Even the Medias have 2 less than the Lobbies, and are getting 1 less than the Lobbies. Perhaps Podium should be reduced to bonus 5?

Also, the current bonus for the Parties are only 1 more than the Podium. Considering that there are 5 more territories and 1 more country to defend, the difference in bonus should be larger. Also considering the difference between the figures of the other continents and their bonuses, the gap between the Parties' bonus and the Podium's bonus should be definitely more than 1...

But in the end it's still up to the creater, so I'll leave it up to you.

I think the idea is that the podium SHOULD be more important. It's more central to the map than other areas and in real life it commands more power. So the same is true for the map. You just have to treat someone with the podium as more of a threat than people with other continents.
