How many clans are interested in Wasteland Style?: 4/22/2016 19:31:40

Wasteland Style is defined as any template with at least 1 full emergency blockade card per person per turn with the size of the abandon card at least 1000% and with at least 2 full blockade cards per person throughout the game with the size of the blockade card at least twice the size of abandon cards.

In practice, our emergency blockade size will be classic, namely 2000% and our blockade size will be 5000%. Blockade cards will appear as often as abandon cards.

In practice we have 2000% emergency blockade cards in 1 piece, 5000% blockade cards in 1 piece, diplo cards for 4 turns in 8 pieces (may be modified later), airlift cards in 1 piece (starting with 1).

We may also include gift cards and other cards in the future.

2000% and 5000% is a bad way to model it. Noone'd wield blockades ever unless they ran out (Abandons are more than enough) or priority grounds, since Eblockades has the oppurtunity to wipe out any offence and be infinitely high, while Blockades.

Suggestions:

800% Abandon, 5000% Blockade
2000% Abandon, 36000% Blockade

Also, I would be up for trying this.

^Thanks!
Blockades are generally used for a different reason: They are more effective wall-builders. It is true that they are not that frequently used unlike Eblockades, they are still effective.

An even more extreme version of Congo WS.

20000% is completely pointless. you can deploy 1 and make a blockade completely unbreakable for even a big game like 3v3 EU or RoR

@Benjamin628 That's why any reasonable WS game on a relatively small map has to provide a reasonably high base income either through bonuses or through basic armies.

Directly porting regular WS (2000%/5000%) to strategic MME will be a disaster since the map will soon be divided by...The Wall...with no way to break it. I'm thinking about making a template on MME reasonably close to a traditional game but with some light WS setting.

Some lower portions of the walls must be breakable for a player with a relatively large income in at most 5 turns. WS is unlike a game with 1/6 emergency blockade cards. In WS the map is literally filled with huge neutrals that form walls hence they can not be bypassed and have to be broken.

...or you could reduce the size of the Blockades, and not have to change the base income ;)

But apparently that's just too crazy.

That's why I said..light WS..Maybe just 200%/500% but with a lot of emergency blockade/blockade cards or a bit more than that.

200%/500% is too light. People won't even use mass blockade if we use that.

I've had great success with 400%/800%. That has worked well on almost every map I've tried - although I could see going lower with the sheer numbers of cards you want to have available in Wasteland Style.

Ultimately, the biggest challenge of WS is keeping games from degenerating into stalemates or long periods of boredom... (I'm not sure you've conquered this challenge yet, frankly! But it's worth thinking about.)

@M.Poireau You are experienced in WS (or something similar to it) hence you do perform surprisingly well. You and Onoma are the first team that actually causes peace to appear without diplo cards.

We do need enough emergency blockade/blockades to make sure that walls can be made.

I didn't realise this was a style, I thought this was just how Skapis made all his games ^_^

Wasteland Style is new to me... but I played through your tournament, so by the time we fought I'd already had a few shots at it. :)

Anyway, many of the other teams didn't understand how it worked, and offered little resistance. Ours is the first real match!

The whole idea sounds kinda weird, but one never knows until a game is played. Can you invite me to a 1v1 game (as long it's not a very big map or RoR)?

Right, but most of the time, an Eblockade will do the trick just as well (the neutral zone isn't going to get crossed), but better (the foe's offence fails and more versatile (you can do it on frontlines). I just think that the blockades are hardly at all going to be wielded, and will feel the same as the Eblockade - impassable.

^That's why I may make it even more powerful in the future, like 10000% so that people have real incentive to use the blockade cards.

When i first read this, i was thinking that anyone playing it must get bored to death and leave at some point. But then i thought it could actually work with the right settings.

Im interested as to how this plays out with adjusted settings. Anyone wanna invite me to some games?
