The time for minor aesthetic suggestions has finished. Unless any genuinely important issues arise, this is the version I'll be submitting to lack:

The Final Forge period has concluded for the Conquer Club University 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!

one question after playing this map i was trying to remember where i had seen the latin quote before and after remember i realised it makes no sense:

"it is a wonderful thing"

in my opinion that makes no sense i think if it is possible to change it to fit the whole quote in

"Dulce et decorum est pro patria mori."

which makes a lot more sense

"it is a wonderful thing to die for ones country"

Just a side note...

This map is bloody awesome!!!

Jota you've done it again! Everyone of your maps is simply unbelievable. I like the USApocalypse map also, had a good game on there, I don't know what it is, but I think the CCU is my favourite map about now!

I think the idea of the quad...because you can get to anyone nearly from it....unless someone controls it.

It's been a while since I've studied latin also but decorum means "proper" the "dulce et" seem to get lost in translation, and there is no word for 'thing' in there as far as I can tell.

Somewhat explained earlier, see here.

Wikipedia wrote: Dulce et decorum est pro patria mori is a line from the Roman lyrical poet Horace's Odes (iii 2.13). The line can be rendered in English as: "It is sweet and appropriate to die for one's country," or: "It is sweet and fitting to die for the fatherland."

He maybe right on dulce meaning wonderful to be honest I have no clue but if he is then the translation should be:

"It is wonderful and proper"
not "its a wonderful thing."

I looked at the page that said that and it translates to "it is sweet and fitting" so at least I was close.

P.S. I should have remembered dulce now I feel like an idiot.

I was kinda hoping that folks might do a little research to figure out just what was sweet and proper -- and that they might even find the poem with that title in the process.
