Let us know what you think of the video, is there anything we missed that should have been mentioned?

Feel free to use this thread to ask specific questions about how to play this template.

thanks rikku!

yeah rento that was quite funny, PS and I both were not sure who made it and decided to not mention who created it :P but PS just followed the usual program and of course mentioned the supposed creator till he probably realized the trap himself :D

Fun fact: this is the only RT ladder map/template to use super bonuses (nested bonuses). The 1-bonuses baked into the center of 4,5 and 6-bonuses provide the backbone for basically all picking strategies.

Mod identified a common and highly effective start to most picking strategies: 1 in the northern 1-bonus (Harbin), 2 in either the middle or western 1-bonus, and 3 in an ftb 3-bonus. This works because it guarantees at least +6 income for turn 1, which is required to get the ftb 3-bonus.

PS pointed out the importance of having a backup plan to reach the North. In case you miss your northern 1-bonus and your ftb is in the South, consider pick 4 in Beijing or the nearby 3-bonus so you can attack the North after you build some income with your other picks (Mod also mentioned this).

ATTENTION MAPMAKERS: we'd love to see more maps with these types of bonuses.

Personally, I hate this kind of a map. The picking strategy is repetitive and half of your picks are forced.

It's fair to dislike the template, but maybe your statement is a bit exaggerated? Also, if every template lead to perfectly "non-repetitive" picking, would that be a form of repetition?:)
