Read back 2/3 pages and it didn;t seem to be mentioned...

Surely siss' access connects to storage? - wasn't able to in my game :(


EDIT: I see now that there is an almost entirely obscured line underneath the army circle :(

Madness - location of "shadow" for the Storage ter

Postby gdeangel on Wed Feb 13, 2008 11:05 pm

I don't know where "bugs" go for forged maps, but I'm posting here anyway... the shadow for the "storage" territory should be moved up just a little so it's actually in the closet to make it clear this is a dead end, and not part of the hallway to Sis's area. This throws me whenever I play.

Actually, a bug like that (army shadow placement) goes in the specific map's Final Forge thread. Here.

Agreed - the old thread is probably the best place for this... I'll try to merge your original post into it, then lock this one down. (cross your fingers everybody - I could bring the whole system down!) :wink:

Another comment from me, since apparently I'm the only person on cc who likes the gameplay on this map...

I just played a match where the other guy started with all four territories of the Dad bonus (+3), and neutrals on all borders but one, which was the back path, held by me. Of course, this is quite unusual, and normally I like a challenge, but the other guy also drew the first move, meaning that he had a +3 at start with which to knock out everything in the back paths and dog, and therefor insulate a +4 behind "3" strong neutrals on all sides.

I know there are way to code maps so that the initial drops do not favor one side too much. This is a fix that MUST be implemented to take this map seriously... there is no way anyone should start with anything other than a +2 or +1.
My ever constant two last games seem to have no end in sight!

Can you suggest this example of how to do these initial drops. That would solve lots of problems on all the maps on CC. ;)

gd - this will only happen extremely rarely and if cairns did it to this one, then everyone would have to do it for all of them, it was just unfortunate for you. i doubt it will happen again for you.
there are also other regions on all maps that may need addressing - so to be quite honest i dont think its worth the effort - and cairn would be doing XML all year for all of his family of maps!

Actually, it happens about 25% of the time... you have a 50-50 chance of having the unbeatable position, or being in the royally screwed position, so it's not really as bad as a 1 in 4 hit, but as your points rise, it becomes a problem still. How to fix... real simple answer = reduce the number of neutrals for 1v1... which limits the incidental blocking effect. Right way to fix... code a rule into this map that prevents anyone from starting with 3 in the garage... or, alternatively prevents any two of the following three from starting neutral: rear path, driveway, and access... that is not so hard, now, is it??

Now, the real reason I am bagging digging up this musty old thread about a map that nobody loves: do you plan to keep Wicked as one of the neighbors now that she has been ousted from the site? If you every "update" this map, you aught to put her in a surveillance van outside or something, make it a +1 one like the dog (obviously make a rule that nobody starts with both dog and van :lol: )... however I don't know if you can put twill in the neighbor spot... it probably wouldn't go over too well.

That's what the crapper system (as Dim so aptly put it) was all about. :twisted:
