You cannot attack further, period. So 'tapping' is not allowed.

Tapping was never allowed in AA. Tapping is still an attack.

Think of it like your troops are exhausted after conquering a region and advancing, and cannot move or attack any further.

There are probably some other giant maps people wouldn't want to do trench with either, though Hive may be the worst. What about setting up groups of maps by size within the random map function, so you could select "random small" or "random medium" etc.?

I was just thinking... Is there going to be an update to the tournament database to allow for there to be a "Trench" type?

Hive isn't actually as bad as people think, because there are more regions to actually attack with.

Agreed - it's maps like feudal epic with corridors that are going to be hell.

Edit: The dungeon one is another.

I think he's right!. Someone quick... call an ambulance. I dont think hes breathing now


I just pinched myself one thousand times to ensure that I am awake. I still don't believe it!

I have to say, with all honesty, that at this point I was completely convinced that this option would never become a reality. 100% convinced. And I am so happy to be wrong!

This new option will reinvigorate CC for sure. A completely new gameplay mode. I envision good times ahead :D

Hey, I've played HIVE like this before and think it actually plays well.


It does. In fact I think it's a great map for this setting.

Bu the way, do you fancy one Hive Trench game? ;)

On the contrary. You have plenty of time to prepare and develop a strategy to counter a bad drop.
