great game; i've been playing since day one with 62 completed games..
a lot of my games are 2-player and I actually prefer that in 2-player games each player starts with 4 pitchers like it used to be (or 2 or 3 maybe). Natty you must be tired of all this feedback but ...

What about lowering the homerun neutral to 5 or 6? Or why can't the outfield defenders assault the homerun (like catching the ball)?

anyway...great game..... i think everone knows you are at a disadvantage attacking first (especially in no spoils game)...

Steve The Mighty wrote:It might be worth considering bring Home runs into play. See game 9093729 - I have one region home run 1 with 266 troops. I cannot influence the game as I cannot attack - I have two choices miss my turns and get kicked out or take my turns and watch the armies grow. Both options delay the game and serve no purpose.

My thoughts but this is the first time I have encountered a potential problem with this map apart from the initial days when the correct number of troops were not allocated to players - this seems to have been fixed or resolved itself


What if Home Runs Could Attack either all the pitchers? or Babe?
Just to allow them to contribute to the game or make them beneficial?

I'm bringing this up, b/c I'm in a game and my only position is the HR ball...... while everyone else jockies for more territory, i'm left 'hanging' till the game ends... able to do nothing

We could put a requirements region on everywhere that isn't the home runs. Then if a player was reduced to just the home runs they'd be eliminated.

That might not be a bad idea. In a 1v1 game, the other player can simply take the bases for the win, but if there are more than two players, then the one stuck on the home run might be there a long time with nothing to do.

EDIT: In fact, this might be a good feature to add to the site. The game engine could generate an implicit requirement for one territory that can bombard or attack. Without that, you are eliminated immediately.

Quick, Kato, to the Suggestions forum!

But what about team games. You can still be useful to your team even if you can only deploy.

Good point, but really in that specific case, maybe the team should be careful to keep you active in the game. After all, it seems a bit silly if a guy in the Iraq map can be helping his team with troops even if he doesn't hold a city or region (just a US loyalty or something). I guess what I'm saying is, if it was a part of the rules, then teams could re-work their strategy without a lot of fuss as long as they knew ahead of time. And I don't think it would detract significantly from the fun of playing teams on a given map.

I did in fact scoot over to Suggestions and post this: viewtopic.php?f=4&t=152348&p=3333096#p3332850 , and the team issue was raised there as well.

I guess it's better to let it be map-specific...

So anyway, if we all agree on this change, I'll try to get the images updated asap...

In that case, would you mind also making the changes in the XML file, Natty? I don't have access to my usual computer and it'd be a pain to do it all on my phone.

I wonder if this update is going to cause anyone to lose immediately.

Speaking of which, is there anything like a message that pops up in the game log describing the changes when a beta map gets updated?

I asked him for access to the tool back then, but he never responded. And it seems chipv is no longer updating any of his tools anyway.

That tool is a big [-X ...don't ask me why....
I was thinking to have it for an official usage (every time an update was uploaded)....but sadly I was asked to not go in that direction.
If you want to give a "warning" to the people , please write here a post with all the changes explained, then send me a PM.
I'll write an headline for it. ;)

I suspect that a tool that can post to the chat of multiple games is an engraved invitation to spammers, and thus not something that the site would want to make generally available. I would like to see a link to the map topic on the game page of beta maps (or all maps, for that matter), similar to the link to the tournament topic in tournament games. The map topic link could even have an icon indicating the presence of unread posts.
