If a team(in doubles, trips, or quads) were to capture and hold either of the 4 capitals do they win the game? Me and my partner recently achieved this with the 4 Entente capitals and the game didn't end. Just wondering if in team games this meets the objective. (or if it is supposed to)

I player has to hold them for a full turn.............

I figured that was the case, just wondering.

One of the reasons Italy went Axis in WW2 was that even though they were on the winning side in WW1, they got squat for it.

Hi!

This is a great map indeed, very fun to play, challenging and enjoyable.

The only constructive comment I can offer is that I don't understand why France offers 5 troops while when holding it you need to defend only 3 territories, while Germany offers also 5, when you need to defend all 6 territories. Also, the Balkans offer only 3 troops (2 less than France) but they have the same amount of territories to capture as France, while you need to defend 5 territories to hold them, 2 more than France! So shouldn't really France offer 3 troops and the Balkans 5?

I think this makes France very enticing and easy to capture and hold, and works the opposite for the Balkans. Meanwhile, Italy and the Ottoman empire also offer 3 troops, but with 3 territories to defend (while the Ottoman empire has 7 territories and Italy 5).

Don't get me wrong, this is still a fun map to play, but I wonder on why there such a grave imbalance between the bonuses offered...

You may want to recount your France.

N. france - Belgium - S. France - Corsica.

Other issues that contribute to the value is that it borders 3 bonus regions with a 4th one 1 tert away. Thats 5 terts to defend against (6 counting Bay of Biscay). And 3 of the French terts normally start as a neutral.

I do agree Balkans should be worth more (4) but other than that it's right on.

Europe 1914 for 2 players...

Postby GoranZ on Mon Oct 12, 2009 4:59 am

The map Europe 1914 is totally unbalanced for 2 players... The first player can wipe out the second player, there r too many units for him in the first round. 15 territories r too much, 9 or 10 would be more appropriate.

For a reference I give this game: http://www.conquerclub.com/game.php?game=5737887... I lost 75% of my units and I haven't played my second round, not because of my loses during my attacks or poor defence.

2 player game is favored for 1st mover. But that is part of the challenge. He took 3 terts from you 1st round. He had a good drop and GREAT dice. 3 tert conquers in first round rarely happens.

As for not having 1st move I have won many on this map moving 2nd.

I haven't played a lot of games but for example in Feudal War being first mean that u will move first and the advantage is minimal if there is any... That's why I proposed reducing the number of colonies to reduce the luck factor, after all the fun is in the skill and not in the dice... I'm sure that there isn't a player skillful enough to win in my situation even with the same luck as my opponents(which was huge)...

It's really nice map, but for 2 players game, I think the territories for each player should be reduced to 14... as is now, it's highly likely if playing first to get 1 territory (8 to 3 is not bad odds) and your opponent to start the game with substantial handicap.

I love how people always jump right out saying "the map is broken!" when they actually haven't taken the time to read the map properly...

Great, Great map. Huge WWI buff. I've completed 20 games and have probably played this one 8 times. I love it. I wish there was more WWI based maps.
