Nice one.

It's not quite clear how you actually attack the castle....I'll hazard at guess at going through the towers.

I find the "pass" territory rather annoying and out of place. it's almost as if it's like "oh ya, there's this thing over here, too."

I'm enjoying it a lot. Well done! =D>

Only comment...making the courts worth 8 seems a little high, especially since you can control them fairly easily. Yeah, there is a lot to defend, but the paths in are protected by neutral.

Yeah, the courts are very strong.
But you have to consider how they work...Courts territories are all starting positions, so you can't sart with the courts ;)
Courts are isolated by the 4 neutral bridges. But you can bombard the courts with the catapults. So i don't think it's so easy to hold this zone. :-k
Anyway we could set the bridges with only 2 neutral armies (instead of 3) if other members have concerns about courts, but i think the bonus is right.

You sure about that?? Doesn't appear that you can.

The cats can bomb the towers and castle, but not the courts. If they could bomb the courts, the bonus would make more sense.

i'm playing a few games with this map but it's too early to have a clear vision of this things.
the pass territory it's just to give some caos to the regularity of the outer territories and since now, my esperience tell me that it works well. ;) in some game tipe it will be very strategical.. ;)

yhea, the courts are very strong, and yeah, there are the neutrals bridges to protect it, but this mean that if somebody try to conquer the courts, someone else must try to conquer a bridge to break the court bonus. ;) since i began with this map, i always tried to make a map with a lot of possible strategies and i think that this map it's one with the most various strategies of CC. you think that the courts are very strong, ok, try to conquer it and test the answer of your opponents. ;)

maybe after some games i will change my opinion, so please tell me your experience with this map, but now i think that the gameplay of this map is too interesting. ;)

ok, first the pass territory is functional, as I said, I just think it can be arranged differently to make the map LOOK better. second, learn to use diffrent :D :? :shock: :P ;)

I like the map, though. :)
