to be fair playing 1vs1 makes crossmap and single medal kinda shady in my mind too.

Am I the only one thinking, that manual should be distribute only along your own troops, and not on teammates?

Hm, if we were playing Risk, that does make sense. But since we are playing Conquer Club World Domination, it could be a unique variant for our use. :D

Age of Realms (1, 2, 3)
City Mogul
New World
Feudal Epic
Feudal War
St Patricksday - not playable
(Das Schloss)
(Peloponnesian War)

that should be an accurate list of maps that are clearly not maps for the manual troop placement medal. (if I missed one, it means I didn't pkay that one yet, which is not many maps), 2 last maps are in Beta.

there are also some that are borderline cause of either the objectives (aka if you don't read carefully, you corner yourself with a manual deploy)or cause of amount of territories (who would even start a manual drop on those?)

Age of Realm Maps have two places to deploy.. And manual does make sense on these maps depending on drops... So to remove the manual from this map would def. change game play..

For instance.. If you get dropped Mua and Borun in AOR 3.. Then deploying all of your troops on one castle would make attaining a bonus region much easier.. especially Mua since you have to hit a 3 and a 6 just to take your first rune...

The same goes for both Feudals and New World....

The best solution to this dilemma would be to remove the Manual Medal from 1v1 settings.. and grant it for team games only.

As for Dako... I disagree with you.. I enjoy the science behind being able to place on either my teammates or myself. So I would still allow for manual deployment on ANY player.. In a team game... Forting or feeding one particular player becomes an essential strategy at some point and time.. This happens to create it a bit sooner.

My vote is to remove the medal all together...or to make it a team based medal to avoid some of these 1v1 medal "farming" examples individuals have shown concerns about.

p.s. Jamaica and City Mogul are def an exception since its been stated that manual makes NO difference.

I think the manual deployment should stay the way it is. Who cares if you start with neutrals surrounding you or not. There is still a certain strategy to placing your troops. If you do not think so then I invite you to play me on WWII Poland. :lol:

lol, you might as well delete the map das schloss if you delete manual from it. Personally, I think manual on it is the only way to play it. I honestly like that setting so much im pretty sure Id just quit CC if it was removed.

and unless i misread map rank, you have never even tried manual on das schloss, so you essentially have no idea what you are talking about.

Sigh... I guess I have to reiterate this. Whether a map is suitable for manual or not should be game type dependent. For example some maps might not be suitable for 5 player singles manual, but could be suitable for 4 player doubles. The system I proposed would take this in account, and should be simple to code:

to allow for manual deployment, for singles games a map must have for each player at least 2 territories that do not start neutral, of which at least 1 territory must not be coded as a starting position.

In the case of team games, the 2 territories minimum doesn't apply, but each player must still start with at least 1 territory that is not coded as starting position.

That suggestion is a little more difficult than you think, Natty_dread. But I know lackattack is looking into somethings, and we'll see what happens for his Medals Update Part 2. :)

Unlike two-player assassin/terminator games, deciding what maps don't matter whether or not manual deployment is set might be very subjectively based. It concerns me because, while manual troop deployment may not look like much on some of the maps, it makes quite a big difference, because getting the right start plays a huge factor.

If I'm the only one who thinks this, then I will gladly step down from my position, but you may want to ask around more (i.e. reach to players outside this forum listing) and see how they feel. I might be biased because I play pelo war with manual deployment, but I can honestly say it has nothing to do with a medal (I couldn't care less about getting another medal, and if I were stripped from all my medals, I wouldn't complain). It has everything to do with controlling how I start.

using manual freestyle on maps allows me to go first most of the games in public games which i enjoy

also on maps such as the aors there is a huge difference from having 2 3's or a 1 and a 5 especially on aor2 where there is a +3 aoutodeploy on a castle

another map ww2 poland has a major effect of manual 1v1

there are too many situations and the only real problems are on city mogul 1v1 manual so either just do that or get rid of the medal, it is used for strategy and not for a stupid medal most people dont care unless your blitz and need to have the most medals on cc

Im not complaining about you not playing it...only commenting that you have no idea if manual should be considered for it because you have no idea how much it is relevant to the map and that's fully because you've never even tried it.

You are not hardly the only one that feels that way. Myself I dont care what maps are counted on the medals...that is hardly as relevant as actually deleting options from games for the sake of medals, which seems ridiculous. If however, the manual drop does not matter in any way, than I suppose deleting it from those games makes sense, but again, the cure seems far worse than the disease, and having manual on games that is unnecessary has nearly no impact whatsoever in most cases.
