you see that's the problem....some people are always going to enjoy something different like having the bowler active, whilst others will always want some balance.
how the f*** do i keep everyone happy :? :? :? :? :?:

Simply you can't.
We would have only 1 map if it would be possible. ;)

Didn't you say earlier that it was not your intention when building this map to have the bowler a complete non-factor? Since the bowler has been changed to a neutral 3 to start the game it is VERY rarely touched all game long. It's up to you what you do with your map but I'm just letting you know what my observations are. If the bowler was turned into a neutral single to start the game it would no longer be a non-factor as it would likely be used without having to make it active which some people think is unfair. I think that would be a nice happy medium.

I was happy with the map before the changes. I liked the bowler with a 3 neutral. And the way it is now, if someone has a streaker, they can just hide out for a turn and ravage the field very easily. I also liked territories like Amos being mixed and not neutral 2's.

I can probably get used to the changes. But imo, there was nothing wrong with the settings the way it was before. I did think it was a smart change to make the bowler a neutral 3 (from a change earlier). But the most recent changes are unnecessary and I like it less.

But if you do make Amos a 2 and the bowler a one and you're aiming for a more fluid map; then something like public03 should be a neut 2 (not 3) as well imo. B/C you've created more opportunities and the person going second needs to be able to counter more easily.

I really hope we go back to the way it was. I don't know who started this campaign to change it b/c it was perfect a month ago.

VOL...there will be no changes after this, unless there is a major error.
please get used to it ;) and develop your strategies accordingly.
the changes were made to apease those who thought the 1st lot of changes were too much for the bowler.
Thanks, however for coming back to comment. :)

starting from Game 12096501, which is the first with the bowler starting as n1, 23 1v1 games have been completed now. of these, player 1 has won 14 and player 2 has won 8, so there remains an advantage in going first (skewed by 4 games where someone started with a bonus, though this was a different bonus each time). the bowler was conquered in 21 games (of which 13 were won by the player who initially conquered the bowler) and ignored in 2; in both of the latter, the streaker also started neutral. in every game where the bowler was conquered, someone received the +2 auto-deploy bonus at least once.

the next most popular bonuses were public 7 (held in 20 games), fielders 9 (held in 18 games) and catching a six (held in 15 games). the least popular bonuses were bars (never held), batsmen 12 (held in 1 game), singles (held in 2 games), fours (held in 2 games) and fielders 12 (held in 2 games).

if these numbers are typical, then we can be reasonably satisfied that we've achieved the main aims of the new xml: a map that is fair to both players in 1v1 games and where a good part of the action takes place on the field itself.

I'm not usually a Cricket player, but I have been put on the map multiple times since the new change and I like it a lot. I think the map works really well right now. Note: my games were not 1v1 games.

Firstly, most threads have a start map on the front page so that players can see who starts neutral.
No, the streaker does not start neutral.

No it is not interchangeable.

I had a look at the xml and it does not have underlying neutrals, so in games where the territory number drop possibly gives the Streaker a neutral start, this does not happen...
it would always start with a player on it.

Remove batter negative deploy from cricket game

Postby Ltrain on Wed Jan 22, 2014 1:50 am

Remove batter negative deploy from cricket game

Since most people now have figured out that cricket is all about the bowler/controlling the field, it seems a little cruel that one of the ways back into the field thru 12th man to batter would cause the losing team participant to have no deploy. There really isn't any reason in team play for someone to hit the batter unless they're desperate
