you're right.

i can't wait to see people messed up when they see chapter 3. each castle will have a different playing style. so in each game you'll have to adapt to whatever castle you're assigned to :lol:

Not sure if this was discussed before, but I couldn't find it. Shouldn't the player ***** be getting 0 troops since there are more frostbite territories than armies received?

The -1 goes TO the territory.

For example,

****** gets bonus of -1 armies added to Bef

If ****** had a 3, he now has a 2.

frostbite only applies to that territory.

You lose one army on that territory, it does not affect how many you deploy.

look in the legend where it says: "docks can attack any other docks connected by open sea"
then look on the map and you'll see some ice bridges that limit sea movement.

so eon connects only to ikalu and vesk.

I'm putting this here since it's the most recent one, but it applies to the first one too. I see the Objective now (had to get Yeti to explain objectives...lol) is to "Unite the Realms" on these maps, as an alternate way of winning. I don't believe this makes it clear enough that uniting the realms = win the game. I know space it tight on the maps, but is there anyway to add that unite the realms= win the game instruction to these maps? It's not clear to those of us who don't live here in the foundry, which is 95% of the site. Thanks for considering.

I think this is a failing of the site rather than the Map really...

The site should have better instructions regarding the Objectives.

I agree somewhat, but think it's a failing of both. I can assure you that the vast majority of the people on this site do not read instructions, so while we should also put something in the instructions, it does need to be on the maps as well IMO.

i believe this is due to be included in the instructions (it was mentioned on another thread) as for making this clear on the map - it was even more vague on age of realms befor I and some others pushed DiM to go as far as he did. good luck convincing him to further expand. :wink:

first of all the site needs better explanations of all gimmicks used on maps.
writing long legends to explain what bombardments and one way attacks are is really nasty especially when space is so tight.

second i think it's up to the map maker to do the map as he likes. i want my objectives to be a bit vague and yet very clear to those that know where to look.

even now i'm not totally happy with the amount of info i had to put on the map. i wish it was more vague.

and btw if anybody is curious about the clues on the map he has 3 options:
1. figure the clues and do the objective to win the game
2. go to the forums and ask what are the clues about
3. do nothing

btw wiked. if you didn't enjoy that bit of clue i guess you'll hate the riddler. just do a search for it in the map ideas if you're curious

Explanations of gimmicks are exactly what's needed. And the most appropriate place is on the map. People will not go very far to search for an answer. But I do understand the lack of space on the map.

I know there's Map Info pages in the works, could it be something that is included there (if it's not already)? I think that would be sufficient.

Edit: OK I see it there on the map info pages. Looks good.

I will check out that riddler. thanks.

We have something in the works that we hope lack is willing to implement that will place the more complex maps in their own section (complete with a tooltip players are forced to at least glimpse if they attempt to join such a map) explaining that the map is way beyond average risk and may require some extra study on their part to fully understand.

This combined with the info pages when we are ready with them should be more then enough to handle a lot of these problems.

Of course we probably need to wait until the UI hire is ready.

Anyways like they say, you can only lead a horse to water, you can't make them drink but we're sure going to try...

PS... I didn't know we had a draft of the riddler. :?
