I've been able to underline the "bowler gets +2" and bold it on the large map, but doing that on the small map only blurrs it too much :-)

Could you change it to that nice green color to help make it stand out? Just a very random thought.

Now that's a great proactive thought...i like it...done :)

I don't know if that would achieve anything...we are simply trying to tweak things so that players can be happier with the gameplay...almost like negotiating between two parties :)

So is there still going to be another change to the size of the nuetral on the bowler or is this it now? I was under the impression that more changes were on the way

Apparently the discussion surrounding the change has been forgotten. Basically this was changed from a great map to garbage in my mind.

I have not forgotten about this jimboy...RL and other priorities simply get in the way sometimes...
and since there are always going to be people who are unhappy about changes made one way or the other, then these are the least of my priorities...sorry!

fast-bowler 1 and fast-bowler 2 on the map have become fast bowler 1 and fast bowler 2 in the xml. it's fine with or without the hyphen, as long as we're consistent between the map and the xml.

are u sure u can't fit in media centre instead of media cen., at least on the large map?

Media Ctr is a more commonly used abbreviation (or just simply 'Media'). Small matter though.

Of course there are always people complaining. And in those moments you have to think for yourself what's better for the map. Have an original gameplay and be (slightly) unfair when starting in 1v1 and be tactically great in all other teamgames and most standard games or be just another map in the eyes of virtually everybody. I'd know.

Don't get me wrong, you've done great work in the foundry and I'm very thankful, but in my eyes this was a tactical masterpiece and now it's not. And I hate to see your masterpiece gone. Give priorities to the things that deserve it, there are a lot that deserve it better than this. But if you have the time sometime, please look at it again. (And change the bowler back to not neutral)

I completely agree that this map used to be a tactical masterpiece, and this is the reason I was frustrated when it was changed. I am aware there are allot of priorities in life and this is low on the totem pole. I could be persuaded that the bowler starting nuetral is better out of fairness but changing it to a 3 completely took it out of the game. I would be in favor of the bowler starting active but if that's not possible I think it should be changed to a single so that it becomes part of the game again.

Anyways, I know this is taking a while but hopefully we can get it right in the end.

Cheers

I still agree with CD and Jimboy on this. I never even ply the map in its current state. I'd certainly like to see the bowler changed back to active!
