Cairnsy - you never got back to me re this enquiry. As much as I'd love to play Cricket with esc cards I'm having to stay away from it until I know what the answer is. It could seriously screw up a sweep of the board if it turns out those two territories don't connect. Cheers

Here are some extracts from the XML:
Code: Select all
<territory>
   <name>Batsman 4</name>
   <borders>
      <border>1st All rounder</border>
      <border>Batsman 3</border>
      <border>Batter 1</border>
   </borders>
</territory>

Code: Select all
<territory>
   <name>PC5</name>
   <borders>
      <border>PC4</border>
      <border>Police Room</border>
      <border>PC3</border>
      <border>Public 14</border>
      <border>1st All rounder</border>
      <border>Fast Bowler 1</border>
   </borders>
</territory>

From this we see that PC5 and Batsman 4 are NOT connected. The map does show a special border between these territories, similar to but thinner that the one separating, say, Fast Bowler 1 and Public 14.

Yes thanks, I'm aware that on the map there is that wall between PC5 and Batsman 4. I'm not sure it should be there though (Cairnsy said he would redraw it).

If you read the legend it says under The Batting Team "PC 4 and 5 border 5 Pavilion positions" but this can only be true if PC5 and Batsman 4 connect.

Therefore I need to know if the map is drawn incorrectly or the legend is written incorrectly. Either way, one of those things has to change because I won't play the map again until I know.

Well, I'm just guessing, but since cairnswk said he would change the graphic, not the XML, I think he is going for "PC 4 and 5 border 4 Pavilion positions". The map and the XML agree, so it seems like the legend is wrong.

Guys, I am aware of this error, at present however, you are going to have to wait until my uni exams are done in a couple of weeks. Study is more important at present as it costs over $1000/subject, and maps don't pay anything.
Please be patient.

Ah ok, thanks mate. I wasn't sure at first if the XML determined the gameplay or the graphic (I'm not savvy on this stuff) but I realise from your statement that it must be the former. Much appreciated.

I can't beleive you'd send me to a game that is foggy - i can't see a damn thing as to who is who on the field.
A match wouldn't be played under such conditions. :lol:
And in RL, you wouldn't have a match unless there was a bowler.
Come on DJ :)

I agree a starting bonus like this seems severely unfair

Read through the last 5 pages of this thread and it seems that there was a lot of issue with the bowler being a big bonus then not and so on, really I dont think that he should be any bonus at all, whoever starts with him has a huge advantage especially if they get to go first.

Thanks for your thoughts s3Xt0y
Gather your forces and if there is enough feedback in the same direction i will consider the change, but it will have to be substantial feedback, not just those in your current game.

I'm just curious how something unbalanced was allowed to be made into a map at all? A bonus of +2 for whoever holds it...and since its not a starting neutral someone will hold it.

Probably just piling on here...but having played more than a couple of games on it...the bowler in my opinion should start as a neutral. Was it ever suggested to make it just a +1 neutral? That way it wouldn't take game play away from the middle of the pitch which is important to the flow you wanted to create I think...but that way it eliminates the advantage of the player who drops it...and then gets to go first?

I would say in quads it doesn't matter as much (small chance of holding it and going first) but in dubs and singles it's a pretty significant advantage to get it and go turn 1.
