Sorry for weighing in way late. But, those bonuses just look way too large.

I agree with cairns. Given all of the attackable regions it seems to me everything is pretty fair and balanced. Beta might be the place to work anything else out I would think.

Speaking of which, is there an update on a possible beta timeline for this one?

Nice work cairns, beautiful job as always.

Thank-you Seamus.
No there is no word on BETA for anything at present, as you know, we are not being communicated with...everything is very secretive.

          Beta - Quenching

---The standard development period has concluded for the New Zealand Map. All objections have had their time. The Foundry and I hereby brand this map with the Foundry Beta Brand. Let it be known that this map is now ready for BETA Play. After an extended period of time in BETA and once all quirks and issues have been resolved, the map will be put into Full Play (barring any site vetoes).

Conquer Club, enjoy!

              Image


While the map is in BETA Play, there are a couple of administrative tasks that are required of the mapmaker(s) in addition to the initial gameplay testing:
    1. Please ensure that the first post of the thread contains all the necessary information to help future visitors to the development thread; it's particularly important to ensure the most recent images are there, along with any helpful guides (such as gameplay quirks/nuances or the location/size of any starting neutrals etc.)
    2. It is the responsibility of the mapmaker(s) to ensure that they respond to further feedback in a timely and constructive manner.
    3. Write a "creative" map description and send it to the Foundry Foreman via PM. You're encouraged to post it into the first post of the thread as well; the description will be used to populate the maps database.

Congratz for the map.
My eye usually is not a big fan of your maps design, but this one looks really nice. Nice combination of colours and sober enough.So this time my eye got you :)
Didnt try to play it yet but it looks really fun so i will do it soon.

Great ... you really get the sense of the planes when you play it. I have enjoyed it thus far immensely! The number of territories makes sense too. Good degree of complexity. It's interesting to see how the Tikis become important as the game develops - but no more than the territory. I've played sunny and found that hard - but with fog and manual deployment knowledge and experience really shows. All in all I think its a great map and thanks so much for making such an effort developing it. Nice to see Aotearoa represented on CC too!

Thank-you Armandolas for your feedback, I hope you enjoy this map.
As a matter of other feedback...why my other maps not catch you eye? Just interested to know :)
