Hmmm ... I guess I am going to have to agree on a name change. Sure the Falklands War (series of battles) dominated the year, but it was also the start of the Lebanon War which went on for 20 years! There were a number of other minor attrocities, plane crashes, establishment of the Senegambia Confederation, a massive earthquake in Yemen and other notable events (like the first emoticons and syzygy) but those were the main two battles. Problem is that I am unsure which deserves "1982" more than the other. If you don't like Maggie's war then you'll have to try something else!

hey koontz I'm wondering if it might b a cool idea to put a +1 autodeploy on the first aircraft for both sides. I've been playing it 1v1, and its pretty awesome, but I can't really see myself going for the planes with how high the neuts are

A +1 auto on the first planes would take the most powerful part of the map and make them even stronger. In most 1v1 games, no one will go for them, as you said, to many neutrals but that is normal for a 1v1 game.

As I discussed in the game we're in koontz, I really think there needs to be a bonus override for the plane bonus. As is, if you hold all 6 planes for one side, you get a +12, and these regions can be totally held by holding only two regions (each sides helicopter). The +6 should override the +4, etc., instead of being able to pull the +6, the +4, and the +2.

The +6 should override the +4, etc., instead of being able to pull the +6, the +4, and the +2.

Each helicopter can be assaulted from 2 or 3 different territs. You have a total of 27 neutrals to get if you go for the max bonus (51for both sides). Holding both helicopters in the early game is impossible. All aircraft can be shot down from from the opposing countries planes so defending them is imperative. Looking at games since you spoke about this in game chat but it does not seem to be the overriding factor in games. Players are not grabbing them quick enough for my liking. Air power won this war so it needs to be strong and right now, I think it may be a tad early to say it is too strong.

Why would anyone go for 27 neutrals just to get a 6 bonus? They would become useless. You need to defend both helicopters as you said but they can be attacked by 5 territs, which is not easy. You only need to break one side to be able to shoot down all planes and remove all bonuses.

It is a different dynamic for the game but I see no reason for the override.

But here is another new image that fixes a colour problem with the last one. Sorry :oops:

Perhaps you could lower the neutrals some? Perhaps that the reason players aren't grabbing them quick for you. But a +12 for 6 regions is way too high.

The bonus spreadsheet indicates it should be a 3.25. 6 total territories that can be defended by 2 territories with 5 territories that can attack and 7 different continent neighbors yields a suggested decimal bonus of 3.25. And then the bonus can be doubled by defending the same exact two regions. If someone takes control of both the helicopters early they can chip away at the planes and in a round or two be given a +24 with two regions to defend. That's game over.

I understand about wanting to keep it as historically accurate as possible, but for the sake of gameplay some things need to be adjusted. I don't know why this, and other issues I've already posted on, weren't discussed in the MFW.

The reason players are not grabbing them quick is that players tend not to go for neutrals. That has always been the case, hence the higher bonuses. To try and get them to go for them.

Your 6 total territs that can be defended by 2 territs bonuses say around 3.2. What does it say when you run the numbers that say you need to defend all 6 territs? In other words, you hold all British aircraft and I hold all Argentine aircraft.

6 territories for the bonus with 6 territories to defend, 11 territories that can attack it, and 7 continent neighbors yields a suggested decimal bonus of 6.92. This is much closer. I'm working now and can't too detailed with this, but I will try to post some ideas tonight too, if you're receptive to receiving them :)
