Post Fix remaining balance issues: Unfair maps
Joined: Jun 25, 2009,
A game with such different races is probably never going to have perfectly balanced maps.
However, there are some maps where a side / race can apply a very easy set of moves for a certain win. I think this should be corrected where possible.
This thread is to point out those maps for correction. Players are invited to add more unfair maps below (or correct any errors), preferably in the same (easily understandable) format.
To make it easy to correct the worst maps, I suggest only adding maps that confirm to the criteria "a side / race can apply a very easy set of moves for a certain win". Maps that are a little unbalanced but not so easily demonstrated should be left out for now.
Problem: A Blue Sapien or Khralean player can always win by using fast units to prevent the red player taking an equal number of bases.
Solution: Improve initial infantry positioning, modify initial credits
2. Green Valley
Problem: A Blue Sapien or Khralean player can always win vs Titans by using fast units to prevent the red player taking an equal number of bases.
Solution: Some combination of the the following: Improve initial infantry positioning, modify initial credits, remove some mountain hexes, let speeder traverse mountains without penalty.
3. Wild Plains
Problem: Red Titans can always defeat Blue Khraleans / Red Sapiens can always defeat Blue Titans by spamming infantry and some infantry converting units and targeting the opponents base that is almost surrounded by mountains.
Solution: Reduce the number of initial credits red gets. Remove a mountain or two from around the targeted base.
Problem: Blue Titans (vs Saps or Khrals) and Blue Saps (vs Khrals) can always attack player red's ship in the naval base giving blue an advantage.
Solution: Fix naval balance, make water on Harbour wider.
