XML has been checked and corrected. If somebody wants to double check the coordinates please do, because otherwise I'm ready to put this one out of its misery. ;)

It depends what you're thinking. A fair amount of them are not uniformly placed, but seeing how it's not possible to really "center" them and that they're all in the circles, I'll leave it up to the public and you in particular to decide what's best.

In my opinion, the large map coordinates look great. The wonkiness of the numbers in the skewed circles is a little more obvious on the small map. You could increase the size of the circles on the small map to compensate for this, but I think it's fine as it is now.

Agreed. I'm pretty much of the opinion that i could spend a few more hours and see very little improvement. As the mapmaker, I can live with it as is if everybody else can.

          Beta - Quenching

---The Final Forge period has concluded for the Route 66 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!

And as noted, Kansas City, Missouri is indeed a larger city than Kansas City, Kansas. Missouri has the Royals and the Chiefs, Kansas has Dorothy and Toto.


Whoops, my bad. I didn't know Kansas City went into Missouri as well. Weird how one part of the city is one state's capital, and in another state the same city is there but larger.

PS - Yay quench!

The bonuses are off for the 2 player game.

If you are first one to go, u are getting an indefinite lead by 1 army, unless your dice screw u up: If u conquer at least one country in the first round (85% chance), u are getting 1 more army then the second player. Then in the second round u need to conquer 2 with deployment of 5 (at least 56%, if u cannot reuse anything from the first round). And so on and so forth.

A quick scan through the completed sequential automatic 1vs1 proves it. Out of the 20 games I have checked, only 6 were win by the second starting player.

The game play is quite an unbalanced for 1vs1.

The game play is quite an unbalanced for 1vs1.

For starters, player 1 isn't starting with a lead, because player 2 gets to start with the same deployment: 4 armies. This isn't a lead, you're just BOTH getting more armies than you would in a four player game, for example. In order for P1 to reduce P2's deployment, he has to take two territories, since the players don't start with any adjoining territories. In most games P1 should get his 10th territory by the end of round 2, but chances are he has done so by hitting neutrals and he has set himself up to be attacked directly by P2.

You say that 70% of 1v1 games were won by player 1? Sounds about like any other map. 1v1 games always gives an advantage to player 1, and while this may be particularly so on a small map like this it is also particular so in large maps like World 2.1, where player one starts with enough armies to really put the screws to player 2.

Anyway, if you look back through the thread this was discussed a bit, but if somebody has a concrete suggesting, I'll happily consider it. Keep in mind that any significant changes to the number of territories that improves 1v1 games may negatively impact other game types.

I suspect that somebody who plays this map a lot will figure out how to play it as player 2. And in the end if this turns out to be a less-than-ideal 1v1 map, the community will realize that and not start so many 1v1s on it. Not every map is going to perfect for every game type.

Right, there will always be maps that don't create as quality games as others for certain settings (however you define "quality").

As long as a map isn't horribly out-of-whack, and serves a majority of settings, it is an acceptable map I'd say.
