If you designed the maps shouldn't you be telling us?

I did, but we have far better strategists out there.

What the creator wanted to tell was that he's a map creator. A map creator have to let his children go. Now that the map is released is far better to have input from other players cause they will see them map as he is and not in the way the creator intended. I guess that's it.
It's a matter that after release he want's to have a feedback from the strategists too, he developed strategies while drawing and all but it would be better to him if he could listen to other people and so, it's special and is even worth as quality check..


If you have a daughter you will know what I mean.

I'm guessing it so, did I read some minds or not?

As soon as both of these go live, you know all my other games are going to get neglected. Out of all my maps, these are the ones I am most proud of graphically.

Top one (Vertex) normal deploy.
Aurtrum, some starts but mostly normal deploy.
The question is can you work out how best to play before they get into play?

I love this amazing new feature - when the webMASTER is 'not available' we can have fun imagining playing new maps.

no im not nearly smart enough for that,, :x

but ill start playing once hits beta and let you know what i arrive at..

at this point i would say; a) deploy 4stacks and hit your opponent unless you dropped something that could become a bonus cheaply
b) break your opponents bonuses before taking your own
c) pull out and dust of your old sacrificial altar and get going with goats and virgins to the dice-gods..

this strat normally works in general and ill be more precise once i have actually tried it;) looks neat though.. i just hope it womt inherit the troubles from blitz map when its tied to regions/region-count like that..

but time will tell i guess;) (maybe you could put up your own xml-server and do pretrials off-site?

These have hit beta, so what is the best way? How did you win your game? What size of game was it and what settings.

I've just set up two 1v1 games on these maps. They're relatively small maps so perhaps not something I'd play regularly, but I like the unique bonus system and they're completely different from anything else at the moment.

In terms of general gameplay - bearing in mind I've only played a couple of rounds - I'd say it's best to just work from wherever you're strongest and break your opponent's reinforcement lines to prevent them accumulating bonuses.
