hello highlanderattack and all, I was not made aware of any change, and I would hope to be included in the say since this is my concept before any changes become implemented.

please consider nobodies and kab, thank you.

perhaps shoot me a PM and let's discuss this!

Yeah came here as well I do not like the change on clandemonium. 10280620 - I see no odds of me winning this as they're two drops surround one of mine and my other guy is way far away.

I also find it weird that a map that made it past final forge was changed with just one person requesting the change.

There's nothing weird about it, it's within the mapmakers' discretion to decide for changes after quenching, whether it's 1 person or 100 who's posting about it.

Also, just because only 1 person posted in the thread doesn't mean the mapmakers haven't received other feedback about it.

For the sake of debating to debate.

Weird by definition is something unusual.

Maps do not get major gameplay changes every day after they make it past final forge since I have been on the site, in fact I would say it is a rare or UNUSUAL event.

So, I guess the issue of whether it is weird or not depends on your definition of weird.

For the sake of debating...

An unusual occurence is something that doesn't happen often or regularly. A weird occurence is either something that has no explanation, or is inherently absurd or unnatural.

Which makes it unusual, but not weird.

we may need to have 4 starting positions for 1 vs 1 games and dubs games, this may make it a little better for the player who does not go first? what you think on this kab? would this serve to be more helpful?


2 other things for ideas kab, see what you think here m8, see what others think as well.

1. deep lands 4 through 12 could all be 3 neutrals not 2?

2. Tofu 13, IA 12, ID 14, AoD 13, The Legion 14, LoW 09, Thota 13, Empire 14, BSS 13, TsM 13 = all could have a symbol on them representing clan leader land?

These territories are usually meaningless in most games, however, if it was a clan leader land with a cool symbol and a reward of an auto bonus of +1 for holding the land, and a auto bonus of +1 every round you hold it automatically, it may attract some to go for it, creating for more valuable areas to enrich the map. Or if there is not enough room in the key, you could make those territories of neutral 1's?


These changes could help aid in improving the map slightly? What do others think? What do you think Kab?

Look at your definition of weird...point two...defined as bizarre...now look up the definition for bizarre.

Thank you

So unless your saying that the reference YOU posted which states weird as being defined as bizarre is wrong.. I guess my OP was correct

Look further down the definition of bizarre. The differences between bizarre and weird are outlined there:

Synonyms
Bizarre, fantastic, grotesque, weird share a sense of deviation from what is normal or expected. Bizarre means markedly unusual or extraordinarily strange, sometimes whimsically so: bizarre costumes for Mardi Gras; bizarre behavior. [...] Weird refers to that which is mysterious and apparently outside natural law, hence supernatural or uncanny: the weird adventures of a group lost in the jungle; a weird and ghostly apparition. Informally, weird means “very strange”: weird and wacky costumes; weird sense of humor.

Has a map ever been pulled back into BETA status? I think with the recent changes and talks of new changes, perhaps it should be done with this one...

The Pearl Harbor map underwent some drastic changes, IIRC.

There was nothing wrong with the map. It was, IMHO, one of the best maps on the site. Then, a single person complained about it (and not even eloquently or in great detail) and for some inexplicable reason based on that ONE incoherent complaint, the map was changed? And now you think it needs a full-scale revamp because of one single unecessary change that can easily be reversed?

Well, I see a problem here, that would be adding more confusion to the rules which are clear and conceptually precise. (apart from the problem of not having more room/space on the legend board for extra information)
Why not making those distant region starting with 1 neutral troop instead of 2? they will always be useful for region count purposes

I agree with you Dukasaur. I loved the map as it was but now it seems like it is going to go through an overhaul.

LOL the debate on unusual --how about changing the map without any notice is :

BULL SHIT--now debate that
We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, therefore, is not an act but a habit.
