That is because you are playing speed games with 1 min and people do not have the time to understand a complicated map they do not know. If you were playing casual the results wouldn't be the same. More majors and colonels using BOB will join your games and your results would not be the same


I play plenty of games with people that use bob, are captains and above, have experience on the map and still beat them. If you are trying to imply that I have no strategy in Das Schloss I can ensure you that you are wrong. None the less bob is useless in a FOW game on das schloss in a 1 v 1 minute speed. You can see from the log what your opponent is dropping and how many regions they have. That's all you need to know.

Hive is more about dice and who gets first turn, I can assure you there is more strategy in das schloss 1 v 1 than hive 1 v 1.


Trying to imply you have not strategy?? not at all.

I do not believe that.

Obviously in 1 min games BOB does not help. You have to know the strategy and not finding it during the game which is the reason you have that huge advantage.

I believe that if you play 1v1 casual you will drop under 3500. You think otherwise? Do you know an example that a player make it to general without using speed games with limited time or freestyle in 1v1?

Listen.. let these guys debate though I agree with DiM....


play large maps that rely on skill and not tricks..

the new knights map is actually the best.
Hive feudals... large maps with a varying low and high neutral count... maps like oasis and mogal are trick maps and generals are mad from those tricks so beware.

I hold back more than these guys know... the little I respect the 1vs1 paper champs here and the Andys that support them.. well Ill not go the4re.


Just message me.. ill give you the real nobu list with no punches pulled... and if you talk each turn and read each turn and are over 15 years old, ill play doubles with you on any map any setting you want to learn.. not many people will offer you that here.
Maps Maps Maps!

I promoted to a general by playing 1 vs 1 Hive. Not because I am the clever guy of the site or because I am a superior strategist etc, but because I chose this map. Obviously many people can repeat this process. It is not much time consuming for a premium. In fact I was a Brig for 5-6 days...I overstepped the rank of Brig in a single week. And I have not reached my zenith, I am still rising with 3632 rating and 12 100% won games standing by and waiting to be finished. I am not aware if anyone has ever done something like this in another map, so it is natural to claim that hive is the superior strategic 1 vs 1 map. No "trick" was involved. No fog, no freestyle, not only speed games (about 50-50), no private games, no invitations, no foeing opponents who defeat me, nothing. Pure no spoils hive 1 vs 1 games free for all players. Unless someone can claim to have done that (reach the general rank) in another map, it is safe and natural for me to assume that this is the superior map for 1 vs 1 games. Of course, if some "tricks" get invloved, this may change. I assume someone can further increase this score by applying freestyle play for example. Yes, maybe someone can reach higher with freestyle, private 1 minute games in lets say knights map. But if we want to compare maps, we have to stick to comparing basic settings, otherwise we are not making a conversation to reach a verdict, we just yell to each other with sentences like "pelop war rocks! It is the best!". You cannot disregard this arguement (you can in fact, but it is not proper in a conversation) by replying "My opinion is that Feudal epic is the best". This implies that you suggest your favorite map, without sufficient arguements or comparing data to decide. If someone wants to prove that another map is superior, he has to overstep the given and accomplished score by playing natural settings in his favorit map. You cannot convince me by using the current conqueror as counterexample. It is not comparable. You have to bring an arguement that compares similar settings. And you have to objective. I also do not like the graphics of Hive or the amount needed to clean up the map, but this should not cloud our judgement. This makes the map unpleasant, ugly and time consuming, but does not contribute to the discussion about which map is superior for 1 vs 1 games, which is the subject of this topic.

Very impressive, Kaskavel! I like how you take on all comers. I think part of your success is less about the Hive being an excellent 1v1 map (my experience with it is 6+ players and Quads) and more about taking a map, mastering it, and playing it very well.

But may I suggest that Hive 1v1 may not be the best map for the majors, colonels, and brigs that you've beaten lately? =)

I agree with you, though, Hive is a great map to play.

turmeric was at 3800 for a while playing only sequential cricket 1v1. At the beginning most of his games were casual, though he switched to speed after a while.

I disagree with that. Freestyle game play depends on a lot of things, not the least of which is strategy. To make things even more difficult, you have to make strategic decisions on the fly and react quickly. I think it is a different type of game, for sure, but to say there is no strategy involved is incorrect.

Play Eurasia. I took some steps to ensure 1v1:s would work out on the map:
- bonus drops are nigh impossible thanks to use of neutrals and starting positions for smaller bonuses
- both start with a 10 troops deploy and you can't drop the 2nd player under it on the first turn (unless you get really amazing luck), which eliminates any first player advantage
- you can't get a higher than 10 deploy either without taking a bonus, so the bonuses actually matter, and taking neutrals isn't such a bad move if the situation calls for it
- best of all, it's really biiiiiiiig

That's not really true. You can't eliminate first player advantage. But, he's right about Eurasia being a pretty decent 1v1 map.

OK. I cannot check that now, but I believe you. This makes cricket another good candidate, together with hive, for the best strategic map.

Has anyone tried Knights, the new BETA map? It might be a candidate.

About Cricket: they have changed the XML on it since turmeric played. Not quite the same map.
