The problem with a lot of "strategy" maps is that they become farming maps. It's unfortunate, but if there's a map where strategy truly can guarantee a win against a first time player, people get all upset. I don't know if that's what happened to cricket.

There was a "flaw" in Rorke's that allowed 2 turn wins given certain settings. Two experienced players would have to counter this to ensure that they could even stay in the game. That's kind of a cool thing for a map to have. But noobs were helpless on it.

Istanbul. You start with 3, there's no wierd bonuses, you don't have to attack lots of neutrals and there are plenty of attack routes. Its makes for a very strategic game with chained esc.

Not a very complicated map though. If I had to pick one map to illustrate skill on 1v1 it would be Das Schloss.

That's not only a very good point but it explains why some people get obsessed with certain maps. Of course there are lots of reasons why people get obsessed with certain maps but ranching points has got to be there at the top of the list.

I believe that I have an idea for a strategy map that will also be a historical and informative map about the Island of Puerto Rico. Rich Port in english. LOL. It will have two versions. The Modern and the Ancient.
