it's on the old version or the new version?
and yes it requires carefull resource management due to the very open movement options.
eliminate a guy and you may be too weak to survive. stay on your house and build and you may also be too weak if the others expand.
you have to know what and where to attack

You may want to take a look at Game 3261442. Look at Yellow's comments from his first round turn.

I haven't looked into it in depth, but it does sound like maybe the bonuses are a bit off?

Thanks guys!

yeah in the first round of that game the bonuses were screwed i have now idea how or why because he had just 3 terits. my best bet is that he took his turn in the middle of the xml change and something went wrong in the database.

This map makes it worse, not better, because it's now 100% about luck: whoever plays first in a 2 player or 2 team game wins: First player/team takes an arsonist, then bombards the next opponent to play's shops so that that player has minimal armies to deploy. From there it's a massacre - whoever plays second doesn't have a chance.

See Game 3252951 where in round 1 the team to play first got 242 armies, and the team to play second got only 122!:
team1blue: 121, team2green: 61, t1yellow: 121, t2red: 61,
t1blue: 161, t2green: 51 (11 to deploy), t1yellow: 121, t2red: 26 (6 to deploy),
t1blue: 161, t2green: 51 (11 to deploy), t1yellow: 186, t2red: 0,
t1blue: 201, t2green: 26 (6 to deploy), t1yellow: 231, game over.

This was before (or maybe during) the time when the XML was revised - this can't happen this way any more

What changed? I can't see anything mentioned in the first post. Are no more players put in W and E at the start?

You are correct - all the shops adjacent to the arsonists now start neutral

I don't know if this is considered a bug but here is my issue.
The objective is to eliminate your opponents or own the Manor and Mall.
During gameplay I conquered the Manor and Mall, but did not win automatically, I assume the instructions or objectives should state more clearly that you must HOLD the Manor and Mall for 1 turn in order to win the game.
If I am being picky then tell me to shove off or worse.

Thankyou.

that's how it always goes when there's a game objective to have some specific territories in order to win
you need to end the turn having the cc manor and mall, not just conquer it during the turn and then lose it again

Not quite right - you need to hold it at the start of your own turn
