Thanks, but must be said that I was mostly just the hand.
I saw the potential into it and I decided to not leave this map die, this is the only merit I have and I want to have.

The real appreciations should go to thebastard, he is the mind behind the map. Unfortunately he left the site long time ago. And obviously also to ender516, who has not only written the xml, but also contributed in large part to the refinement of gameplay and the discussion of this map.

However thanks, I'm really happy that there's so much people who loves the map. :)

Thanks, tnb. I, too, did not want to see this map fail, so I put more into the gameplay analysis and discussion here than I think I ever have on other maps, but without you polishing the graphics, we would not be looking at this map at all.

It's a shame theBastard left us, but between his hand injury limiting his artwork and his growing frustration with the pace of the foundry, I think I understand.

baltic crussades wrong bonus

Postby betiko on Fri Mar 15, 2013 1:34 pm

Game 12432634

I hold east prussia bonus (3) and BOB says I hold the teutonic order bonus (2), the one next to it. East prussia has definitely more territories so it seems logical that it's worth more.
Just took the bonus so don't know if it's a BOB problem or a map problem and what bonus I will actually receive next go in the game log (if i hold it of course...)

humm... did I mentioned it's a fog game and that i probably shouldn't tell this publicly yet? lol

East Prussia is the bonus that has sudovia into it and gives you +3. I have to swap the shields into the legend.
Btw this topic belongs to the foundry, can a mod move it there?
Thanks

ok so you need 3 spots to hold both of them: why the hell the bonus that needs 3 cities + 1castle is worth less than the other one that requires 2 cities+1 castle? you need to kill more neutrals to get it.

castles are not part of the zone bonus as written in the top left legend.
Then you should consider other aspects apart the size of the region itself...like, number of borders, neutral borders, number of regions that can attack the bonus, position of the bonus on the map (central position is worth more troops), one of them has also a neutral castle in the middle that split it in two parts, etc etc....

however, what values do you suggest?
