yep.
If you are holding all three parts of the Grand Oasis when you start your next turn, you win.
Thats exactly how its supposed to work, no bugs there.

It looks like I need to submit a bug report on my reading skills. I could have sworn it said that you had to hold it for three turns. But I looked at the rules again and I completely misread it. D@#%it. I could have won that game if I had read it right

Fwiw, even though you were originally confused about how to end the game. I do agree the game ends to quick, specially in freestyle.
The neutral armies should be beefed up in the middle imho or you should have to be able to hold them for 1 full round not 10seconds of one round.

Great map though.

Victory conditions and the freestyle setting (especially in speed games) ain't a good match of formats. It's just something one needs to know.

Map issues/suggestions should be discussed in the map development thread which can be found in the final forge sub forum in the map foundry.

Here is a link to the thread for OASIS which is where I encourage discussion to continue :)

Oasis Development Thread

I will flag this up and see if cicerio or a global mod will move it over to the foundry.

cheers,

I have not read the whole thread so I have no idea if this has been suggested before.

But I wish that desert territories occupied by your armies, if they only had 1 on them would become neutral 1's instead.
That way you could not leave anyone left in the desert, because they would simply die. And the -1 for this and that territory would actually mean something, even when you only have 1 left.
Maybe just maybe, the desert territories starting with 2, 3 or 4 also could build back to that?

Thats my 2 cents.

Good map otherwise.

Game # 3907471
Units in the dessert are not decaying as described, instead, a -1 army penaly appears at the beginning of the turn, but before units are awarded for territories and oasis bonuses. this is resulting in dessert terts not having any ill effect on their holders at all.

I'm going to recommend that the BETA tag be removed from this map... the concerns above have more to do with CC's gameplay engine (1 army terits can't lose 1, victory conditions can be exploited in freestyle games, etc.) than with the features of this map.
