Hi natty,

You have made a beautiful map her but I think it is a little to dark. I am guessing you are doing for a dark look, but I think it is a little to much. Could you brighten it up just a bit please?

Cheers,
gimil

I've already brightened it a lot from what it was initially. I think the current brightness level should be at least playable, and brightening it further would make the graphics crappy.

Anyway, for the gameplay... from the few 2-player games I've played, Silla is not getting used at all, which in turn makes Tang the most powerful area. The 8 neutrals basically works as blockade for Tang...

So I'm thinking of reducing Silla to 2/3 bonus and 6 neutrals.

Additionally, I've considered adding a 3rd red junk somewhere on the map. This would add some ways to attack both Tang and Silla.

That could work.

and what about the East margin, have you considered making a sea connection somewhere?

Well, the red junk could be added there... I don't want to add too many new connections, but one red junk somewhere could be beneficial.

Now just have to figure out the optimal place for the new junk.

Maybe Donggokjeo?

I'm thinking either Donggokjeo, Salsu or Lelang.

Maybe you looked at an old image... I haven't kept the 1st post up to date after beta :oops:

So anyway, I added a red junk to Donggokjeo, reduced Silla bonus to 2/3 and capital to 6 neutrals. I also reordered the side legend to the same order as the lower legend, changed "it's" to "its" and set the lower legend to the same brightness as the rest of the map (I had forgotten this previously for some odd reason).

I loved the map until the recent update bumped up neutrals (especially on Qingdao and Gyeongju).

I was so happy that you had finally succeeded in creating a map with useful neutrals - ones that could be taken in 1v1s and team games. But now, Qingdao and Gyeongju are useless. This makes the Wa bonus far too important.

And please don't bump up the neutrals on Wa; just lower the others to where they were before.

I was so excited about this map... :(

Sorry Commander, but basically everyone complained those bonuses being too easy and giving far too high a bonus too easily. They made games imbalanced and basically decided by drop.

So anyway, I'm not bumping up Wa neutrals, but I'm thinking it should be lowered back to +2 - it's purpose is not to be the most important bonus.

Also, Qingdao and Gyeongju neutrals could maybe be lowered to 4 each now that the bonuses pay off only each 3 territories.

On that notion... How about making Silla give 3 for 4 - that would differentiate it from Tang more: it would be harder to get a bonus but it would be higher in the long run...

Nice map.

You putting a red junk in donggokjeo? How about donghuyeo instead. Put some importance/entry/exit up there.

Historically northern Goguryeo was, at the time, not an important area - mainly nomadic tribes with little political influence. The map reflects this by having northern Goguryeo function as a not-too-important area: a resource for whoever holds Goguryeo but not as a strategical area full of action.

Donggokjeo makes more sense both thematically, and works just as well gameplay-wise... it provides an alternate route to both Silla & Tang from the central map area, making it more strategical, and alleviating some of the bottlenecks.

Thanks for the feedback though.

I love how much research you've put into this! Mind sharing any of your sources?
