          Beta - Quenching

---The Final Forge period has concluded for the Austerlitz Map. All objections have had their time. The Foundry and I hereby brand this map with the Foundry Beta Brand. Let it be known that this map is now ready for BETA Play. After an extended period of time in BETA and once all quirks and issues have been resolved, the map will be put into Full Play (barring any Lack vetoes).

Conquer Club, enjoy!

Relax. Chill out. Foundry time runs more slowly than real-world time. This is a well-documented fact. ;-)

wow, I am not sure how this one spent a year in the foundry and came out looking like this. It may be a niche map and some folks are bound to enjoy it. But to me, its entirely unaccessable.

I've played this map a few times now (a few still active), and am loving it thus far.

Two solid +2 bonuses, nice gameplay with the increased range of the cavalry, no complaints from me!

Great map- well done =D>

thank you lgoasklucyl

sorry mibi but why do you say the map inaccessible for you
and was it a compliment your first sentence
did you mean I'm good at graphics
because first map I posted was already like the final one
I always start a map with a graphical concept
anyway thanks for your comment

He is saying that for a map that spent such a long time in development, it looks craptastic.
mibi wrote:But to me, its entirely unaccessable.

Hard to read, understand, play on, etc.—the legend doesn't do enough (plus the design of it doesn't work very well in-game).

I said it elsewhere: it looked very nice as a jpg in a thread, but after playing it it's just too :?

pamoa, I just wanted to let you know many are grumbling and upset with your new map. I have not yet played it, but plan on it, when so, I will post you some feedback to be helpful.

here is the link

I have noticed an anomaly in Austerlitz, during play I was offered the possibility of assaulting Dokturov directly from Kienmayer.There is no direct connection between the two.

I like the map, but after playing it several times, I am still completely confused by the bonuses. (and note, I am an experienced player). Can it be explained a bit better?

Kienmayer is Cavalry, attack range 2, and can therefore assault Dokturov via Telnitz.

The only problem people have with maps like Wateloo, Prison Riot, Age of Merchants, this map, Forbidden City etc. is that they don't spend enough time reading the legend. I spend 5 minutes reading the legend on a map before I play it. I have never been remotely confused about an attack route on any map on the site as of yet. I don't think it's a coincidence.

One thing I love about this map is how concise the legend is. It is short, to the point, and tells you absolutely everything you need to understand the map.

First, I DO like the map. I am not one who is simply criticizing you. That said, I am more than a bit experiences on playing ALL the maps and I think simply saying "you did not take the time to read the legend".. is, well, as bad as those who are just saying things like "the map needs to be bigger" .. even when the comments clearly show you considered and rejected this suggestion early on.

Just to name one example, this thing that calvary can attack 2 spaces ahead is not mentioned. The "left flank" bonus says A + 5 divisions, but which divisions. I have twice thought I had it, but the only bonus I have ever gotten is the village bonus and the auto-deploy Napoleon bonus.

Again, this is coming from someone who plays every map. If you still do not wish to change it.. that is, of course, your choice. However, I very far from the only one who feels this way (the map is fine, but not the explanations) -- and I DO mean people of all ranks, with high experience.
