If I am reading it right, once you have made it to the Group stage there is minimal benefit in holding qualifier territories due to no region bonus. Does this affect how powerful you perceive the bombard ability to be?


Not really, because in the games I have played/I'm playing, there has never been a reason to take anything beyond the group stages. I have done so only once, and that was through the QFs to access a different group.

hmmmm Is the map working as planned if it doesnt go beyond the group stages? Isnt it supposed to at least resemble a push towards the finals?

Having played a lot of 1v1, I am, too.
We were worried that it would get ignored, since it cannot be attacked by any qualifying team, but I guess we overcompensated.
Do you have any suggestions for fixing that?

Well, as has already been mentioned in this thread, that is more likely to happen in multiplayer and/or trench games. My only examples are a single doubles game and polymorphic games of all sizes.

I'd remove the auto-deploy, it makes no sense to have a double bonus feature for the single region; bombardment is enough.

The other World Cup maps work the same way, as do most maps with objectives (ever hold the thrones on Austro-Hungarian Empire?). This is a Risk-based game - the main idea is to eliminate your opponents.

Ok, so I am playing a game now to get a greater understanding of the game mechanics.

My early observation is that if by luck of the drop you can remove your opponent from a qualifier group it is extremely easy to take the +2 bonus, and exceedingly tricky to then break that bonus. This is where Canada comes in as its the easy method to break the +2 bonuses.

The problem as I see it, is that the bonuses for going further in the competition are all quite small. QF = +1, SF = +2, 2G +3rdP = +1 etc. With such small bonuses on offer there is little incentive to venture out of the groups rather than use Canada to drive eliminate your opponent straight away. As with all games its tactically advantageous not to attack neutral terts without proportionate gain, and in this case I do not see where the gain would come from.

I have never played the 2011 map, but notice that the bonuses are similar. I'd suggest that the bonuses for progression were at least doubled, such that the new tactics of camping on Canada are not overly dominant.

I think you should have more experience before forming such an opinion. The way the bonuses work is fine, you just need to know how to play the map.

Wing - Canada can't bomb all the qualifying territories, and can also be accessed from three different groups.

I agree with removal. It's a bit too much. Opponent had it in a 1v1 and he is catching up to me now after I had an undeniable lead.

Hindsight is 20-20. First game on the map, still trying to figure out the strategy.

My point is that there is only 1 strategy that resolves itself within 3 rounds.

A single bombard that can attack all* territories within 2 in all vulnerable directions is extremely overpowered on this map.

*Except the third place quarter finals which are too heavily fortified to impact on early game.

Would making Canada a killer neutral be going too far in the other direction?

BTW, Wing, as I've said before, Canada only bombards 23 of the 36 qualifying spots - it doesn't bombard the countries that aren't also represented in the group stage.

Postby iancanton on Sun Jul 26, 2015 4:58 pm

bear in mind that all of the games in sempai's tournament are fog. this is significant because, like the spies in arms race, canada is particularly valuable in fog games as a means of seeing the opponent's regions as well as of bombarding them.

of the 30 completed 1v1 games with standard sunny settings, the canada bonus was awarded in 10 games (33%) and it was the first bonus to be awarded in only 2 games (7%), 1 to the winner and 1 to the loser. if we remove the canada auto-deploy bonus, then is there a danger that canada will be ignored in sunny games by all except those who are new to the map?

i agree that making canada a killer neutral is going too far.

to try to make the objective viable in more fog games as an alternative to grabbing canada first at all costs, perhaps another solution is to reduce the starting neutrals for the 2 finalists and 4 semis to n7 each and for 3rd place to n3. the objective will then require the killing of only 39 neutrals, which is still a lot, but more feasible as a surprise fog tactic than having to kill the current 53 neutrals.

WingCmdr Ginkapo wrote:I'd suggest that the bonuses for progression were at least doubled, such that the new tactics of camping on Canada are not overly dominant.

if decreasing the neutrals doesn't work, then i'm not averse to either removing the canada auto-deploy or doubling all bonuses for reaching stage 2 or later rounds.

What if you make canada start out with 6-7 neutrals rather than 4, making it less susceptible to a quick rush and grab. With more neutrals there, multiple people might just end up in the same group there waiting for the right moment to snatch it.

the map is played completely differently depending on whether it's a fog game. with n6 neutrals, canada will probably work reasonably well in fog games but, in sunny games, be ignored completely instead of only two-thirds of the time.

Can it not be made that canada can be attacked from all regional group leaders. The problem i see is that if someone grabs canada fast its game over. Due to the fact they have the 6 deploy and can break your group bonus. Or could you add a auto deploy of 2 to the top line of all group stages.

Due to the fact they have the 6 deploy and can break your group bonus. Or could you add a auto deploy of 2 to the top line of all group stages.


If something is breaking the map why would you add ten more of it?

Because it would balance the map out. Making it easier to go for a different bonus. Just now if you have canada and a bonus you can just sit and break opponents bonuses. And opponant has no way of building to get another one.
