Due to the very heavy terrain here, banning Grit and Lash (as well as Colin and Hachi) is
strongly recommended. Kindle is also a suggested ban.

This idea has been utilized before, yes, but this is my first shot at an epic 8 player FFA, so
don't rate it too horribly if you can help it.

Although there are many, many properties outside of the motherlode, it will probably be the
area of greatest attention.

I know that ending a game with all eight players here is about a 1 in a 10000000, it is
however a designation of how big and long a game can be.

Although the side armies are slightly closer to the motherlode, the corners have only one
entrance, so they can defend themselves more easily.

There is about a 1 : 5 or so ratio of airports to bases as I have tried to emphasize the land
combat occuring on this map.

I like this map. 8/10.
golden_cow2 (04/01/2006 10:17am):
The corners still have two entrances. Also, they will never be able to get the mother"load"
before the side players, because the side players can just stall at the "easy-to-defend"
entrances to the corners.

Until these problems are fixed, I give it a 8/10
???revived (04/01/2006 12:38pm):
Yeah I guess it was rather unbalanced. I took away two cities from all the side armies and
placed a port on the inside of the "lake" of each of the corner armies. The ports are
landlocked so that only landers can pass through. There are shoals on
the outside, so that the corner armies have another way across.

Edited: The pipe seams on the pipes seperating each player's starting positions have been
removed, giving the corner armies, which are disadvataged in terms of being farther away
from the motherlode, the advantage of having only one front to defend their main base with.

-1 for ports being useless due to shoals being in the way
-1 for the map being too crowded(I think there should be more plains)

infinite war......

Umm... there is so much money here that Colin isn't even going to flourish here. Kanbei is way more dangerous.

Pretty good... 8'd

GE needs a second lake base
