hmm I didn't take notice of this. well if the best strategy is to build a bship to cover the enemy base that does make it interesting, but wont that lead to FTA? both sides seem like they should be able to cover the base in the same amount of time and without contest meaning that P1 will get 1 extra turn to build from their extra base without being attacked by a bship (because OS gets its funds before BM).
even under new light it seems there is another problem. plus with the bships that are to be made there is no way for them to be of use past the oceans they are in, meaning they will mostly be defensive making the games have a higher chance to drag on much longer.
I still dont think it should be added
@blanci - "I think thers a lot of top players who might be saying they dont want maps especially in fog because it might be hard for them to use their particular abilities to keep the battle under the kind of control that they are accustomed to."
turns out you thought wrong. For me and many others, AW is a completely different game in fog. I dont like playing in FoW because it is luck based and with the woods system it is extremely hard to make offensives and is much easier to just set up artillery and play defense. I also think FoW takes much less skill to play in because of all of these things which is why I dont like to play in it. I respect those who like to play in FoW but to criticize me and others for not liking it is a step too far. I dont like FoW and with good reason and if you can't respect that then I can't respect your opinion. I most definitely am not opposed to FoW because of this silly reason that I am not accustomed to it, I have played plenty of FoW games over the course of many years and came to the decision based on experience that for me AW isn't as skilled or as fun with FoW as it is without FoW.
"Hence awbw runs a risk of becoming stuffy if risky ideas are perpetually dismissed and require massive consent. Its like the political veto, theres always gonna be one or two top players that wont like some aspect of a map or other new idea made by or suggested by an outsider, and thats basically the kiss of death. For a suposedly modern gaming site this place is far too conservative imo.
Doesnt anyone know about the difficulties faced in the past by revolutionary ideas in science such as continental drift and evolution, relativity and so forth? This place seems to me like the spanish inquisition."
You are completely wrong on the first part. No one here dismisses ideas just because they dont like one aspect of a map. they dismiss maps because they either are very likely to stalemate or have major balance issues. Now to be honest I dont like all air or all sea maps, and so I wouldn't like to play on them, but I wouldn't criticize an all sea map for being a bad map unless it had one of the 2 issues stated earlier.
No one ever "supposed" that this gaming site is modern. where did you here this from? this is just a silly and stupid side comment that serves no purpose.
Yes, I am aware of all of these things. I am also aware that your argument in now way can draw any similarities. in what way does the fact that contents drift because of plate tectonics relate to your silly and subjective idea of how AW should be played relate? please explain. I would like to see this explanation.
I would like for stone bridge to be removed
I dont think it is a very good map.
this is the only game I have ever played on it http://awbw.amarriner.com/game.php?games_id=95180
and I can already tell that even though I have kept the advantage in my favor all game that with very few properties up for contest and 5 bases this game will take a LONG time. I dont want to take my turn on it either just because I have to move so many units and I know it is going to take a long time. I would hate to set draw when I have the advantage but there are just so many units and it will take so long to gain a substantial advantage and hold that advantage that playing on the map just isn't fun.
if the reason it is in is because people like larger maps, I would much prefer maps like toilet flush over this one. but yeah this is not a fun map at all to play on and with the large amount of maps available I would much prefer some other map be in the leagues.
