I just wanted to say that I've but recently started playing foggy 1v1s on this, and of my dear sweet creeping jesus is it fun, perhaps the most satisfyingly strategic experience on this whole damn site. Major thumbs up, cairns. Sure hope to see a trafalgar map sooner rather than later.

Yeah, the artillery are pretty damn important, to say nothing of the deep satisfaction one gets from wiping out half-a-dozen enemy terits. I can almost hear the crack of the field guns...

Bob...map inspect....tells me that Blue still has one territory alive. Where it is i cannot see.
Maybe he's hiding in amongst some neutrals.

This is not a bug. It's a player mistake for trapping yourself in an artillery.

I can't fort into my teammate's artillery, P01, from P06 or Z01, even when I owned P04 and P02. And it's chained, not adjacent, so that's not the problem.

Is there a reason for this? The relevant game is Game 3059663, but I may have lost some of those territs by now so it probably won't be any help to look at it.
Reputation cleared. :) Never let it be said that Team CC don't investigate fairly.

Waterloo Map suggestion

Postby jjleblanc25 on Wed Sep 17, 2008 5:48 pm

Hi everyone,

Maybe this has been brought up before, and if so, I apologize. I have been playing on this site for a short time, and I fell into a "trap" as well as a few others that I have seen playing the Waterloo map (which I think is a great map).

It should be noted somewhere on the map that armies cannot be fortified out of artillery stations. Granted it's a mistake you only make once, but thinking that you'll be able to move your troops to an adjacent or chain territory from an artillery station and then finding out you can't could really wreck your strategy fast. And unless I'm missing something, I see no warning about that...

Just my $.02.

He joined a month ago and almost has a higher rank than you, i think he's enjoying it ;)

At this stage, jjleblanc25, the map wont be changed. People are aware of this possible problem but the best way is to just avoid getting trapped, or purchase premium so it doesnt take up one of your game spots :)

waterloo=the best map ever thats part of the strategy of it how many you drop on the bombarders since if you put to many you cant get them back and if you put to few you run into problems that way.

I tried to point that out as a problem (that it be better explained) when it FIRST came out, but I was told by the creator that he did not think it was a problem. That was several months ago.

Uxbridge 04 looks like it touches Picton 02 (it's got a single pixel overlap), but it's not directly connected in the xml. Any chance of moving the hedge over a smidgen?

Very nice. Fixed up a few other slightly ambiguous parts as well.
Is that field of earth between von Blucher 02 and 03 a different colour? I hate to be nitpicky, but I figured someone would mention it :)

Firstly I love this map, but one question. The bonus values seem very arbitrary. I have no idea why uxbridge is an 8 while Ziethen is a 5 for example.

For the artillery bombardments, what does it mean by "marked territories"?

"Enemy-marked territories"

Subtle difference...

does that mean if you hold an artillery territory, you can bombard all enemy territories except for Wellington/Napoleon?
