What maps are you currently playing on?

The goal of this thread is to be in the same vein as What Board Game Are You Currently Playing? and other popular threads similer to it. A place for casual discussions on what maps you're playing on. I hope this thread can breath more life into the cartography community and encourage map makers.

I just built Mountainside by @Cleon . I'm hoping to get a game in tomorrow with @Major Q23 . I also have a trophy map I made called Ozymandias set up. It's probably my favorite map I've ever built(not that that's saying much). I need to get around to posting it on hear.

Re: What maps are you currently playing on?

I'm looking at trying this out:

By @Porkins It looks neat.

I love playing on this map:

By @1Mmirg Though I modify it slightly so that double spacers can use it more easily.

I'm currently playing on:

By @Flash which is a great map, that I'm enjoying.

Re: What maps are you currently playing on?

Finally got my hands on a Dungeon set so Iíve been playing on a lot of those maps. Most recently my friend and I played on @Flash_19 ís The Crypt

Maybe I should put something useful down here

Of course man! We got one game in today, once I get some more I'll write my thoughts in detail in your thread.

I've always been interested in that map, but for some reason I've never actually built it.

I looked in your map thread regarding your modified version but didn't see anything. Do you have a post discussing your changes?

I've never played on a @Flash_19 map, but I really need to. It seems to me that he could be one of the best of new wave of map makers.

I didn't post about it anywhere other than the Utah Monthly thread back when I made it. And I didn't really say much about it in there either. Basically, I really like the idea of making a map that is competitively viable, but uses capped castle walls. The issues with any map that uses castle walls, even my modification of Flooded Temple, is that they will favor flying way more than usual, and that Ranged armies are already really good on any map, so giving them the chance to get a double height bonus is playing with some very hot fire. The particular issues that I wanted to solve with the original Flooded Temple v2, are that the top of the map is very bumpy, which makes it hard to place double spacers, and that the path up to the top lacked 2 hex, level ground, road pathing, which made it even harder for them to get to top. So my changes were aimed at making it easier for Double spaced figures to make it to the top of the map. I dream of the day where a competitive map using Castle walls will be balanced, and fun to play on with both, all melee, and all range, still accommodate double spacers.

@Flash is probably the best map maker I've seen just by the sheer number of quality, and fun maps he's pumped out over the last year alone. He's a beast. I love every map he's made, and I hope he doesn't stop any time soon.

Thanks for the insight, if I end up playing on it I'll let you know how it goes.

Wow, that's very high praise. I now know what cartographer I'm making a map from next. Taking into account value and quality my top five in no particular order are Gamebear, Mad Wookie, Dignan, Typhoon2222 and Robber. I'd be impressed if someone broke into that echelon.

Thanks. I'd love to see what others think of it. If you're just playing with single spaced figures, the original is about as balanced.

That's some mean competition, but I think he's up for it. Those guys are definitely worthy of your top spots. I guess I should put a disclaimer though, I am probably a little bit biased since I know the guy, and we play each other at the Utah Monthlies. I haven't had the chance to play all of Flash's maps, but the ones that I have played on, have all been top notch, and the ones I haven't look like they'll be just as good.

Flash definitely is up there. Also some other good ones worth mentioning:

-Panopticon
-tannergx
-LongHeroscaper
-Killometer
-Rednax
-Darkmage7a

I think Rˇchean's also a great map maker but he doesn't make maps too frequently. But he does still make maps, to my knowledge (the ones I mentioned I doubt make maps anymore).

Rednax I think might still be making maps. His last update was last July, but my own thread hasn't been updated in just as long, not because I haven't done anything, I just haven't posted anything.

Re: What maps are you currently playing on?

You are very kind @Leaf_It ! I appreciate it very much. I do love making maps - so it's always great to hear that people are using them and enjoying them. Kind words like yours make it worth the effort that goes into them!

Check out my maps here and my customs here
