Re: Thread of the N3T clan

TheMasterOfBattle has now attained a new title: Agent N3T.

This is because of his great skill in... well, I think he knows where I'm going with the title. :P
He's probably the most skilled observer in the lobby... (wink)

Re: Thread of the N3T clan

Welcome, PROTEUS. (Upon your profession in faith in... :P ... jk)

In a second you'll be added to the list.

(For Sapient: if any other players attempt to join in, I will be gone until Monday. Retreats are nice.)

Re: New map!

You should probably delete all mountains next to villages where dwarf advantage can get abusive. I tried mentioning this on the server. :|

Re: New map!

Gathering information from your last post, it seems that to you, having a map that is fun to play, for you and your friend is more important than overall balance. I will say this- you did a very good job of... making those areas really, really, really powerful for those two factions in their respect...

Re: Asymmetric 5p FFA "Oblikamets"

I think I made a comment on this map before you posted it here, on the server, about it lacking enough terrain. (Forgive me if I'm wrong, here. :P ) I think you have gone to the complete polar opposite, and actually choked loyalists out of any clear pathways. Try looking at some of the mainline maps...

I hate to say this, but whenever somebody tends to post a map without a screenshot I tend to ignore it. Natural tendency, I guess. :P

Re: 12x26 Winter Map -- Alpine Coldfront -- (my first post here)

Traffic flow needs some serious working on the map- you have edited it numerous times, but there are still many unnecessary chokepoints on the map. Remove a good deal of snow, a good deal of forests, a good deal of mountains, a good deal of hills, a good deal of impassable mountains, and replace the...

Re: Weather effects to help balance

Perhaps I'm overstating in the above post, then... :oops: ... However, I will expand on a new thought- I think such a feature would add a new element to cartography that isn't intended... I've always thought that terrain often reflects the weather in the region, and that it is awkward to incorporate...

Re: Weather effects to help balance

I think it is up to the cartographer himself whether it is necessary for this feature to be implemented- to me, I never thought it was an issue. Impassable terrain has always been the best way to deal with fliers as far as I've known. From a realism point of view, there is one problem with this feat...

Re: Ending Of The Ice Age (2p map)

Dwarves would so have it easy on this map. Once they start losing then they just go into the caves and never get killed. There are only 2 villages in the cave- units would not be able to sufficiently heal well enough to hold in the cave for an extended period of time, and would be severely outnumbe...

Re: map-specific thoughts for playing 1v1 mp Northerners

On a map like Den of Onis, 1 scout is all you need if you manage to get a quick grunt to grab the village in your side cave. I don't really have time to think about the other maps at the moment- instead I'm finishing wrapping up presents, being the procrastinator I am. :P The other bonus of grunts i...

Re: map-specific thoughts for playing 1v1 mp Northerners

The idea with grunts here is this: Grunts are cheap. If you buy them on the first recruit, you'll have gold left for utility units once you find out what faction your opponent is. So with 6 recruit slots, recruiting the suggested 2 wolves, archer, and 3 grunts, you have spent 84g and will lose a few...
