Re: B96's Maps-Revised Highland Road

Where the glyphs are right now, the one to an army's right is 7 walking/5 flying spaces away, while the one to the left is 12 walking/10 flying spaces away. That means that for many armies they will be 2 turns and 3 turns (walking, 1 or 2 flying) away, respectively. This makes it much easier for most armies to claim/hold/attack figures on the glyph to their right. And if the glyphs come up something like Valda+Lodin, whoever is closer to the Move glyph will have a distinct advantage.

If you add tiles to where the green circle is up to level 2, and move the glyph to the maroon circle, it will be 9 and 10 walking spaces away from each SZ, which means both sides have roughly equal access to is, and double spacers will still be able to claim it.

Ok, I see. Will do!

Re: B96's Maps-Revised Highland Road

Edit: After some recent discussion on "Raelin Perches" I made a slightly revised version. Thoughts?
Highland Road

Re: B96's Maps-Revised Highland Road Again

Sorry, I've already played my report for next week. It was actually done quite some time ago, which is why I have the outdated version. Hopefully my feedback can still be taken into consideration.

I'm definitely with everyone else on the aesthetics end. It has a look of a very well polished map. The LOS blockers are very well placed. The use of the the right types of terrain in the right places really makes a difference in the quality of a map, and you did it right.

I may be alone on this, but I'm not a fan of water in the start zones. To me, it feels like the map-maker kind of just ran out of tiles building the rest of the board and had to reach the 24-hex limit, so he threw in the leftover water tiles. Now, your map is not like that at all, and the water makes sense where it is placed. However, the large 24-hexer, completely uncovered does look quite a bit like where the starting zone should be. I think that in a tournament environment where the starting zone are not always clear, many people will do this instead of following the irregularly shaped starting zone.

I couldn't come up with an easy way to fix this though. The way that the zones are allotted now is fine, but they might make more sense if the sand three hex space was part of the start zone, and the front three spaces were not. It'd make an easily seen line the start zone border.

Always interesting to see other people points of view. I love water in the SZs, and often include it intentionally to punish Squadscape armies that pack the SZ (figures starting in water spend an extra move to step up to level 1).

Then the glyphs will be imbalanced again. If there might be an issue with SZ confusion, it should be up to the TD to see that it is corrected (making sure they get marked or leaving build instructions near the map as a key are both easy solutions).

Yeah, I had originally had the 24 Hexers as the start zone, But I just Can't forget Kevindola's Zelrig. I HATE Zelrig. like this It is Zelrig Proof.
Thanks a lot for the feedback, I really Appreciate it!

Re: B96's Maps-Revised Highland Road Again

B96, I too am playing this for my next battle report. The match was played and I loved the map! (More will be provided with the report).

However I just realized we fudged the start zones, which may have actually changed the game!

Thanks! Yeah It probably didn't matter all that much(My primary concern was ZBombs) Although this way it's easier to get up the hill on the right, which allows you easier Glyph access.

I could use some advice, Which version of Swampway do you prefer?







Thoughts?

I like the bottom one the best and the top one the least. It may be partly due to the fact that I don't like using the Hive as an obstacle, but...

Re: B96's Maps-Swampway added

I think I like 2 the best. I'm dissapointed to not see the big tree get used, but Marro Hive does make a better LoS blocker.
