Challenge: Make a Good Local-Deployment Template: 8/9/2016 13:36:58

Most Local-Deployment templates have been ridiculed for being un-strategic. Why? What about Local-Deployment is so bad, and is there a solution. Template needs:

- Very high complexity
- Good "Brawl" Map
- Promotes something other than clusterpick

Submit your good LD templates!

I think that France LD is currently the best local deployment template :P

- Promotes something other than clusterpick
- Little Cards (Cards + LD = Bad)


Why are those two things bad? I think they're fine.

@Panagiotis + Dom

Well I think that France LD promotes cluster-picks a lot. See my next @

@Buns

Airlift Cards are bad for the same reason as the bomb card and emergency blockade card. Most cards with LD are okay I suppose, but it diverts the main focus of the template.

I think the cluster-pick is bad because it seems that it is the only viable strategy in Local-Deployment templates. It is not like Europe where the synergy of the map changes each time, it just makes you always do the same strategy, because it is the best one.

So its airlift and abandon cards, not just cards. You might want to correct that in your first post.

Also

Well I think that France LD promotes cluster-picks a lot.


I don't agree here, there are airlift cards so most players I have seen on the RT ladder have spread their picks around the better bonuses.

Also bringing in eu to suggest that is a template where the strat changes every time? Most games are just pick islands, centre then Russia in that order. In turkey and France LD you dont just have to cluster pick, even though it isnt a bad thing to do. Why not have one game setting where cluster picking isnt a bad thing to do?

I think the biggest issue is games where it just becomes defend a few choke point territories and expand, that is Turkey LD biggest flaw.

@Buns, I am starting to see your viewpoint in how cluster-picking isn't so significant and having it be such a way isn't a bad thing. But it is certain that cluster-picking is an advantage on LD.

I don't want to sidetrack more and talk about EU in this thread but I can say that picking in EU is much more complicated than Islands, Center, Russia.

Okay, so other than France LD, are there any half decent LD templates, and what would make a good LD template?
