Just over 2 weeks since the last XML update and I am really happy with how the map is playing. I still can't stand "no spoils" games as they bog down on this map just like every other "no spoils" map.

Anyway if anyone has seen any issues with bonuses or territory connections or if you feel like the added bonuses or the connection between the pit equipment and the pit row seem somehow imbalancing please let us know.

Looks like we have the white flag with one lap left to go before this map enters the winners circle ;)

in Game 13029228, 2013-07-27 00:30:02 - jkppkj received 3 troops for holding A Pit Tool and A Pit Jack and A Pit Engine. i see no mention in the legend of this particular combination of pit equipment. have i missed something or is this a mistake in the xml? i'm guessing that this happened before the latest xml was uploaded.

The bonus and it's overrides are correct in the xml that Gilligan posted above however the title of that bonus is a typo. So it won't affect play but will look strange in the summary till it is fixed. In that game jkppkj held the right territories for the bonus.

Here is a side by side showing the typo... http://www.diffchecker.com/9jh231eu

It is corrected in this xml.

We are on the final lap of the race here but I noticed something in a in a game recently that makes me want to make a small change.

When someone used winners circle to clean out the entire pits and there were 3 players left on the track ... in trench mode it became almost impossible to effectively move around the track ... I am not sure anything really needs to be done about it but if we simply added "winners circle can assault pit row" it would allow you to loop back to the red circles on the track via the a cost of 20 neutral in winners circle and 20 neutral at pit row making.

Does anyone else think this change would make the map better?
... or worse?
... or change strategy too greatly?

I really feel it would open up the map a bit and give a nice a slightly expensive way to bypass the counterclockwise flow of the track that would certainly help in the late game.

Thoughts?

Well, right now that game is never going to end, unless one of us stops trying to win, or makes a big mistake. We're going to keep going in circles. So something has to change. I don't see that anyone would pay that cost earlier in the game (unless both spots are already occupied by a single troop) and it will make it necessary to spread your troops out along a stretch you control in order to adequately protect what you control.

I am leaning towards calling it good as it is, mainly because this won't happen all that often, but I am concerned somewhat about never-ending-game-syndrome. Which is why I brought it up at all.

No no. It's a statement. "Circle" is a verb, pointing out that s/he who wins in entitled to a victory lap. :lol:
