After playing this map a few times, I think that taking the level 3 technology objective is a bit too easy -- the first person to make it to level 3-2 technologies wins every time. Perhaps if each territory on this level had say 3 neutrals it would give others a chance to get their and protect against the victory.

Perhaps this has been discussed previously in the thread (33 pages is a bit daunting to read!). If it has, feel free to ignore.

I think the problem is it doesn't get used if there is more than 1 troop on those territories (or so it seems to me).

yep. as it is now it's a good balance between being too easy to take early in the game and being too hard to take at all.

I have yet to play a game on this map where someone held that objective...how did they hold all four of those and defend all the autodeploys which give you access to break it? would seem if they could do that might as well hold the objective of the base with all the matching autodeploys which I have seen win on this map.

That being said I think tech level 3 should be back to n10 instead of n8 would encourage more play on other parts of the map i think. Maybe comprimise and n9

i don't really think it will make any difference to have 9 neutrals instead of 8. if we were talking about increasing from 1 to 2 it would have been something cause that would have given the defender 1 extra die. but between 8 and 9 the difference is really small. and the higher the numbers go the smaller this difference becomes.

i'm all for changes as long as they bring something significant, when they don't, i'd rather leave the map as it is. changing it too often can be detrimental to the people that are just getting used to it.

But the increase to 10 would be fairly significant.

but we already had 10 there. we should go towards something new not revert to something old.
with the neutral 8 i think we have a good balance now. i'm in a aybabtu tourney and people seem to be interested in all parts of the map.
i don't know how it works for teams but in single games it's ok as it is now.

Exactly! You expect us youngsters to know about all this old school stuff. And how was I to know to search it? I wasn't aware you could steal lines and such from games and such to use in the map.

it's like, one of the most well known game phrases ever. it's quite close to "stop poking me" and maybe even to "IT'S DANGEROUS TO GO ALONE! TAKE THIS."

also a nice one: "i feel asleep" (and no, i didn't misstype that)

get real used to the taste of failure! It's your special flavor.


now guess that quote.
