europe 1914 - CYPRUS attack on turkey

Postby cgianatti on Sun Oct 09, 2011 4:33 pm

Hi

Just a small map suggestion. In Europe 1914 I totally see the sense in cyrpus not able to be attacked by turkey. (No navy back then). I also see the sense in Cyprus not having an unfettered ability to attack turkey. But....(always the but)....if England holds Cyprus then why shouldn't Cyprus then be able to attack. In effect that would then mirror the historical position. It would also enhance functionality as a map.

In your hands - keep up the good work.

Map suggestions should be posted into the map thread.
If one of the suggestion mods will move this topic into the foundry I can merge it with the map thread.

Gameplay: 9

It's the gameplay that matter's though, so I like the map.

Hi,

I've played recently a 1 VS 1 game on this one, and the one who start gets a clear advantage starting with 5 troops due... Could we get a lower nombers of territories at the start for both players? 14 each could lead to a more equilibrate game... Just 2 more neutral...

Thanks for your advice

I'd be willing to modify the code if qwert can suggest which regions(s) he'd prefer to be coded neutral.

8 neutrals, 55 total territories = 47 starting positions

Adding two more neutral = 45 starting positions, same issue, you would need to add 3 more neutrals.

44 / 3 = 14 (now 15, improvement)
44 / 4 = 11 (now 11, same thing)
44 / 5 = 8 (now 9...pretty much same thing)
44 / 6 = 7 (now 7, same thing)
44 / 7 = 6 (now 6, same thing)
44 / 8 = 5 (now 5, same thing)

I'll admit I thought it would originally screw up quads games by lowering it to 4 (first turn eliminations, and such) but adding three more neutral only helps the starting positions. I don't know if qwert will go for it, though.

It needs to be thought about pretty good though, 3 neutrals could change how people go for bonuses pretty good.

I'll talk with qwert to understand what he thinks. Afterall it's his map and he should have the final say on this.
I'll let you know soon about what he wants to do.

I talked with qwert.

He is not ok with change the map to better suit 1vs1 games.
Even if the change is minor and it doesn't require any effort on his part, he has made a valid point about the fact that such change is not required.
Well in some cases there could be a small advantage for a player in 1vs1 games, but the map plays well in all other cases so we can't say that if we don't change it the map is unplayable or unfriendly.

So, considering that I totally respect qwert and his work as mapmaker for this site and considering his reasonable answer, the map must stay as it is now.

No updates will be allowed or uploaded (on my part) without his approval.
Afterall it's his map. ;)

Thanks very much guys for your responses, I appreciate.

I just wonder how to deal with it, but I don't want to change how triple and quad game will be play on this map, it's a pretty cool map...

Thanks again, and no worries about my ask
