People keep getting confused about my map names.

Looks cool. I haven't played on maps like this much, but I wonder just how much those central
black tiles change the tactics you use.

This account has a lot of fun black tile maps on it. I really like the smaller ones personally, but
I have some ideas for large scale ones, just gotta find the time to make em. The tiles are
never placed thoughtlessly or gimmicky, so I have a pretty good idea what they will do to the
gameplay when I place them. I'd write a big forum post about why they're so cool, and how
they open up like a billion possibilities that haven't been used too much, but I don't really have
the time for that right now either. It's not like there aren't black tile maps on this site, but I
really do wish they were a little more common.

Black tiles are pretty amazing.

This map is very fun. Maybe a little too open, but very fun. Using the central black
defensively as meat shield fillers and offensively as +1 movement is working as intended.

Edit: After some playtesting, I think it needs another base. There's currently a lot of
tank spam,
which is okay and everything, but the attrition isn't all that exciting.

Also could use more mountains.

The map should be significantly better now. Removed the combination of massive open planes
and two-base tank-spam setup for three bases and more intelligent use of heavy terrain.

8. Solid terrain, interesting enough supply routes, 3 fronts with easy switching.
