I suggest the two cities in the SE corner be turned into one city located two spaces above
the bottom one so it's more contested (and so that lone-infantry stalemate in the corner
where one sits on a city and the other on a mountain for weeks is avoided ;) ).

Blablabla fun, several fronts, maybe a bit chokey in the NW/SE corners but won't stalemate,
there's plenty of other places to fight on.

I thought it already was noteworthy'd... :(
Fix'd :)

The map is a good mix between open areas and chokey ones. Sami, Sturm, Javier and Kindle
have their own advantages and disadvantages there.

Excellent map as a quasi-ground only and diagonal one. 10/10.

if it matters, OS sturm can recon rush the NE factory.

Wow, fun map! Shangri-La may still be better IMO, but definitely S-worthy!

what r the silos for if u can't use them?

Same thing the reef is there for, decoration

I think that this map would be better without the four bases, but that is me. Also, the towers
draw a lot of early attention, which is dull after the third or fourth time you play on this map. 8/10

this is more of a decration map the ports and silos are useless and blue moon has an
advanteg beacuse they are much closer to the towers

I think 4 bases is just fine for a mixed base setup. Tanks are generally better for this setup, but
the extra infantries make arties better than usual. 9/10 from me.

@xushu... i agree... it might be more fundamental/basic in some sense.... it would be
great to make a map like you suggest... with one army having one base at top and bottom
and the other army having a base at either side... (and no air). Thats a very basic idea
different from usual face to face combat. The central original idea of this imo. Its hard to
believe it hadnt been done before ! ? (see the mixed base forum topic for list of such maps)

BUT immediately after we have made such a map, we might then think what happens when we
double up on the bases... then we get back here! So i think heres no need to throw stuff
out when we can have both ! This present map would probly work in a somewhat different
way, and also gets going faster.

An amazing map! Just look at the statistics and its a dead even FAIR map. Love the silo's :P
great touch.

You know you have a good map when it's suggested to another map maker to use as reference! Nice map!
That map maker would be me by the way. Myes, quite.
