Feedbacl on Final lap

Postby dolomite13 on Thu Oct 17, 2013 11:38 am

So the new territory "Final Lap" has been on the map for a while now and I was hoping we could get some feedback.

* Have you used it?
* Has an opponent used it against you?
* Did it help break a stalemate?
* If you have not used it... why?
* Do you feel the number is too big?

Any feedback about it is appreciated.

=D13=

p.s. I have not used it nor have I been in a game where it was used.

I haven't used it...and forgot to post here about it apparently. I think 100 is too high. Since the territory is added mainly for trench games, it doesn't seem like players will have that much of an army count difference to be able to justify using it. Especially in multiplayer games without escalating cards.

I agree... I was thinking it still needs to be high enough to discourage early use as it is called "Final Lap"

There is a psychology of numbers that I believe would apply. At some point a number is so great nobody will ever want to use it but make that number too low and it will become the preferred strategy. I believe it should be between 40 and 60. I am actually leaning towards the lower end and think 40 may be just fine.

Thoughts?

Very rarely would I need to use final lap, so I'd rather see this map released again asap.

Re: The Conquer 500 - Update 10/20

Postby dolomite13 on Sun Oct 20, 2013 7:36 pm

I have decided to drop the neutral on Final lap to 40 and make it Killer 40

Here is the latest update. I think this should be it. Well I would actually expect one more round of positioning tweaks for the numbers but then that is it.

Re: The Conquer 500 - [Updated 10/20]

Postby Faro on Thu Oct 31, 2013 9:49 am

Could you please check the log on Game 13531607.

On round 5 I had the following bonus
2013-10-31 16:36:31 - Incrementing game to round 5
2013-10-31 16:36:46 - Faro got bonus of 2 troops added to Crew 2
2013-10-31 16:36:46 - Faro got bonus of 2 troops added to Crew 5
2013-10-31 16:36:46 - Faro received 3 troops for holding A Pit Fuel and A Pit Tires and A Pit Engine


Problem is I held only the following at that time:
- Fuel B
- Tire C
- Engine C

So not A engine, tire of fuel. If I understand the legend correctly it's probably just a problem of phrasing for this bonus.

Edit: hmm by reading it again, I guess it's because the name of each territory start with the A capital. If it's the case, sorry for the not really helpful post.


Thank you

You don't need to hold Fuel A, Tire A and Engine A to get the bonus. It can be a mix of letters, just as long as you hold one of each. You could hold Fuel A, Tire B and Engine C to get the bonus as well. Therefore it appears to be working correctly as you had one of each, just not the same letter of each.

EDIT: Hmmm I see what you mean here! You are referencing the A in the bonus wording:

Faro received 3 troops for holding A Pit Fuel and A Pit Tires and A Pit Engine

This is a fair point. Dolomite, perhaps it would be beneficial to use lowercase letters here.

Or you could do this;

Faro received 3 troops for holding 1 Pit Fuel, 1 Pit Tire and 1 Pit Engine
Faro received 6 troops for holding 2 Pit Fuels, 2 Pit Tires and 2 Pit Engines
Faro received 9 troops for holding 3 Pit Fuels, 3 Pit Tires and 3 Pit Engines

I'm a bigger fan of my second option. But of course it is your call!

Oooo yea maybe changing that to 1 instead of A will help make it clearer.

Here is the xml update changing A Pit to 1 Pit everywhere and slightly tweaking the Final lap unit location now that it is 40 instead of 100.

Re: The Conquer 500 - [New Map & XML Ready 11/2]

Postby dolomite13 on Mon Nov 25, 2013 12:27 pm

Can anyone confirm if this is the XML that is on the beta site? I would like to make any final tweaks to the positioning of troops based on what I see there if this is the case.

Thanx

The final lap has 100 neutrals currently so I guess the XML has not been updated.

Yep I saw that on live I know the xml isn't updated there. On the beta server it did come up as n40 but I wasn't sure if it was the latest xml as the n40 is off to the left a pixel or two and I wanted to tweak it of that is in fact the latest version.
