Well the neutral situation is something that pretty much can't be helped. It's a choice between having lots of neutrals or starting with 12 territories...

Personally I think 1v1 plays reasonably well most of the time... 2v2 is the best game type for the map that I've tried. I haven't tried other team games, multiplayer seems to be ok.

Is this supposed to happen? :mrgreen:

My opponent hasn't played yet, but just started with Vojvodina almost complete and his 4 army territory overthere :mrgreen:

Plays just beautifully with 5 and 7 players.

The above image is the perfect example of what I was trying to say. Not so much for the fact that the player has 3/4 of Vojvodina, but more for the neutral wall in the middle, from Slavonia to titograd (or south kosovo).

And like Andy said, that river doesn't help at all...

Probably in this case I would like to start with a worst number of region than be fucked from the start like the green player in this game.
The neutral on this map are shields for the lucky player, right now in more than 60% of games I checked...:-k

No way to move your coded neutrals in other places?
Maybe this map is beautiful for 5 and 7 players games but certainly they are not the most used game type on this site.

Which neutrals would you want moved? The capitals have to be neutral, and the only other coded neutrals are the 3 territories with 2:s.

I don't know if 2-player games can be made any better on this map without radically changing the gameplay. The map works for multiplayer and 2v2 games, and not every map needs to be perfect for 1v1, so I don't really see what I can do, short of allowing 2-player games to start with 12 territories again.

But 6 and 8 players are, and the map works for those as well.

the river? I think that with some work on it you can have a better map without destroying the current layout for 6 and 8 players.

It seems to me you're not so open to changes with your maps lately....
As said the "neutral wall" is not a big issue but it happens very often....this is what I don't like. It seems my cyprus map, but in that map there's a reason to have a wall....i can't find on efor this map. Just that.

What about the river?

It seems to me you're not so open to changes with your maps lately....


If "open to changes" means I can't have any opinions of my own regarding the gameplay design of my maps...

Ok, but I still don't see why every map has to be perfect for 1v1 games?

This map wasn't really designed with 1v1 as a priority in the first place, I don't see why I should now jump through hoops to accommodate it for 1v1 games... the map works pretty fine for the game types it was designed for.

So, what exactly is it that you want me to do with this map? I haven't really heard any actual suggestions...

Remove it. O:)

Please be more specific.

Although, if it was my map I would remove the whole river part to reach syrmia in the north.

Ok, Doboj already connects with Titovo. So basically, you want Doboj to connect with Trebinje as well?

Just trying to make sure I understand what you're asking for.

yes. :)

And as said I would like to have also Doboj that connects with Podrinje (remove the whole river to reach syrmia) but it's a bigger gameplay change, don't know if you like the idea. I'm not forcing you to change the map, just I think that those "random" neutrals doesn't help the player to move around in the central part of the map and that river is just add another obstacle. Don't know, just that i prefer to see players that fight "till the death" in the centre that see them run in the edges protected by central neutrals and impassables, wait and attack when ready using the sea/litoral territories or the northern part of the map. :P

Yes, but that only applies to 2 player games.

One thing that still hasn't been addressed is, why does this map need to be a good 1v1 map? It plays really well for 2v2, and I'd wager it'd be fine for 3v3 as well... And 5-8p multiplayer works just fine as well.

How about I just remove all the neutral 2:s except for South Kosovo? Then 2-player games will start with 12, but it wouldn't affect the other game types.
