Subject to change.

This map is brilliant.

Might switch the HQs for labs to avoid mass-damage CO repair harassment.

Not sure how big of an issue that would be, left them as HQs for now. Seems
like it could potentially be game breaking, but I don't know.

Meh. Changed for now, rather not risk it.

since when do HQs heal sea units?

What Headphone said.

Itsk I'm dumb sometimes. I'll try to get some test games in tomorrow.

This map plays exactly as well as I had hoped. Very fun. All that
cool potential interplay with the artillery/bboat/city/tower dealie.

Giving it a preliminary 9. It's either a 9 or a 10, I welcome
arguments for either one.

Still not sure what the point of the black boat on the HQ is for. If you had a damaged unit, why
not just place it on a nearby city for faster healing?

Functions as a meatshield, delays capture of HQ. Makes HQ defense easier in close games.
Allows repair of a unit during a turn as opposed to repair at the start of your next turn. In
many cases, putting non-movable units on vital properties is used to stop the opponent from
rushing and capturing or harassing it (Sami APC+Inf into early HQ capture, for example), and
while that's not necessarily a problem here, it doesn't hurt.

In short, the HQ Black Boat allows you to play a more aggressive game on the opponent's HQ
front than if it was not there. It doesn't have a huge impact, but it's not there pointlessly.

I like how his account (mori5) has hands down some of the best and some of the worst maps
I've ever made. Weird how that works.
