Re: How to play these two new maps? Vertex / Austrum

i set up 1 of each aswell and got my ass well and truely kicked in both before even starting my first turn..
so based on this i wouldnt say this works 1v1 with such a small map and a bonus-system that (if you get the correct drop) makes it so that whoever goes 1st can drop 7 and whoever 2nd gets 4.. im not sure if ukey just got extremely lucky with his deploy and dice, but both games where lost before i even started my turn going 2nd (still going so may change, but its pretty unbalanced in my book with 7v4 starting-bonuses).
then again there are maps that are unbalanced that people still enjoy like city-mogul or supermaxxx prison-rape.. ill set up a couple more and will update as it progresses, but initial feeling is that connected-bonus system + random deploy and loads of neutrals basically dooms player 2 since no real chanse of breaking whatever player 1 gets round 1.. maybe set starting-places would make it more balnced.. but then again im a fan of any conquest-map for 1v1 and basically dont like any map with random drop for this type of game..

ill try some team-games aswell but i think it would be very messy to get any type of significant bonus in a trips or quads.. but ill try it first and speak after..

Okay, for 1v1 these maps aren't great. Like anonymus said there is too much luck involved and because of how small the maps are, and the bonus system, (un)lucky dice and three card sets just make it a walkover.

I am sort of agreeing with you. By the end of my first turn, it was game over.

Going to give my typical settings of no spoils and fog a try, could make a difference.
