Description

This map consists of Two Parts.
1) The Main Map, and
2) The Headquarters (HQ)

The main map plays normal: Get bonuses for completing states and regions.

The HQs modifiy these bonuses: Stars enable extra bonuses for cities and regions. Each city+star combo is 2 army and a region plus 1 star gives 1.5x region bonus, whole region + 2 stars is 2X region bonus.

Each team has 2 stars and 4 standby spots in the HQ. As many people as possible should select one standby spot at the start so they are can recieve star bonuses later.

Recommended Settings:
3v3 or 4v4
Dist. Mode- Cities/States HQ.
Manual Territory Selection.
At Least 3 territories (1 for HQ, 2 for Map)

Other variants:
- Add gift cards,
-Choose NO HQ dist and set non-dist neutrals to 99 to play without the HQ feature
-Set Negative Bonuses to 0

Review by [REGL] Pooh on 5/30/2012.
I tried to remove some of the imbalances of normal team games with this map by allowing shifting bonuses between teammates. It may be a bit complicated at first, but I really tried to simplify gameplay by having only two rules. One for Cities, another for Regions. Please review the key's on the map.

As always, please invite me to a game if you're interested.

This map is unique. It requires a bit of study to decide how to play and makes a great deal of difference as to distribution methods. The AI does not seem to behave as one might expect with the bonuses though it may be a function of the game selection type.

maybe a way to oblige people to take a star at beginning ?
Response by map creator [REGL] Pooh on 6/19/2012
I wish there was, short of making a custom scenario there is not.<BR><BR>Alternate Distribution (No HQ) makes it so that noone is in the HQ's from the start, and you can change the negative blockades to 0 to have a race to the HQs.<BR>-------<BR>

It's a little confusing, and it give a little too much extra poeple, and it only lets you battle one other person.

Great job. I was getting bored with the 48 state map. This is the next step up. Looks like it was a lot of hard work to make, but the map turned out great! I really liked how the state bonuses are small and evenly weighted.

Very bad map. Avoid at all costs!

It's too complex, overdone. Too many ideas put in a too little a map. Several ideas by themselves are maybe good, but everything altogether simply doesn't work well.
Response by map creator [REGL] Pooh on 6/19/2012
Devean, I'm sorry you don't have the time to understand the map. Its actually quite simple if you take the time (2 minutes) to understand it.<BR><BR>I'll invite you to a game, perhaps we can discuss.
_____
After discussing, it seems the complaints are against the settings, as this map is 100% playable without the HQ's, just using the No HQ Distribution mode.<BR><BR>However, I still stand that the HQ's add something unique. Please give try it out until you understand how they work.
