Dragonfisk (03/23/2008 03:25am):
It's an FTA (First Turn Advantage) counter.
nerd-boy (03/23/2008 11:48am):

Recon from BM can block capture of OS's base
a432 (06/25/2008 08:01pm):
true but OS can do the same thing
RipperX (07/22/2008 05:42pm):
but blue moon can make the recon without losing a step on orange star for infantry
BM: 3 inf 1 recon - on day 2
OS: 2 inf 1 recon - on day 2

This map is so-normal...
prancing gazel (07/28/2011 07:29am):
fta is a myth, the reason u can't move soldiers the turn you move them is to counter fta, in fact the person who
moves second has an advantage because they can react to whatever the first player does quicker

how i can play game ? i dont know
Veritech (10/11/2013 11:07am):
FTA does exist. Counter it by giving the second guy to go half of what the first guy gets his first
turn, i.e. a pre-deployed infantry. This gives him one chance to capture something before the
other guy does, while the first guy gets two.
pen (08/10/2014 04:41am):
Roads ending in forests? The horror!
Madd Maxx (03/19/2015 03:45pm):
need give orange a city near blue's infantry to counter second turn advantage.

please give it airports. remember game creators can always ban air units.

6/10. fix sta and i give it 7/10. add airports and ill give it 8 or 9 /10
Madd Maxx (03/19/2015 03:45pm):
...otherwise good job!
matchet (04/30/2017 03:05am):
As said before me, the blue soldier gives a turn advantage in reaching the factory expansion
at the east, while Orange Star have to struggle with Blue Moon's well placed recon at the
west. This disadvantage usually gives game drops at turn 7. 0 from 3 possible points
The map's design is decent. For these you get 2 from 3 possible points
The lack of contested points of interests rather than HQ, plus no airports or ports gives you 0
from 3 possible points

This map is pretty good in FoW. Plenty Forests to hide but not too many so that you don't
constantly get trapped, properties which are not easily defendeble so that you can sneak up on
them and two fronts you have to work with. The middle isn't all that important tho
