I love the map and the luggars has they stand at this point play no role at all in my strategy whether singles, dubs, trips, or quads, so definitely to make them more of a factor a change would be necessary. Not sure lowering them to 7 is even enough though a step in the right direction, perhaps even as low as 5 should be considered.

In all of my games on this map, no one has ever even tried to take the luggers. I think lowering their neutrals is a good idea. 5 would be good.

In my opinion 5 would be too low since it gives a rather big bonus, 7 seems fine though.

i play it often, one of my favorite 15 maps. have never used the luggers, have never even considered it. have never seen a single of my opponents ever use a lugger. i almost treat them like they are impassables.

lower them to 7 neutrals or even lower. you get my vote!!!

I agree here. I have played this map a numerous times and have thouroughly enjoyed it. I was one of those noobs before I learned the map who used the luggers. I lost that game pretty easily. Haven't used them since. I think 7 is an excellent number. I would also support lowering to 5.

Players, i am monitoring what you are saying.
7 seems reasonable, although it started out previously at 5 so we won't be going back there.
It will have to go through the foundry process, so keep that support coming to have it lowered if that's what you want. :)

I actually played games where the luggers mattered, but I'd like them lowered to 7 or 8.

This is one of my favorites as well. I have never used the luggers nor seen an opponent use them. I think 7 would be a great idea.

I support a 5 as well, but if you won't go that low again, 7 is better than 10.

no keep it as it is. if this gets done you will see that regions on das scholls arms race jamaica feudal will all start asking to get changed. the reason it is 10 is because you bust 2 10s (like feudal) to transport you to a area you know the opposition is in.

These. It will change the gameplay somewhat, but I think it will make it a better map overall, so 6-7 would be perfect for them.
But... It was so artistically done.

After some investigation it seems that the "disappeared poll" could be a forum issue related with old topics. I suggest you to start a new topic in the foundry discussion subforum and start the same poll there. Sorry for the inconvenience cairnswk, I know it's not a real solution but right now it's the safer one I have for you.
