UGH! Removed from PW until Spring engines performance increases.

In PW you can not pick which maps you want to play on, you pick the planet you want to conquer. Maps that some players can not play on do not belong there.

Another option would be to use a fixed metal multiplier for maps like this when played in PW.

Good riddance, I approve. Doesn't seem that great for teamgames anyway.

It's like Speedmetal, only with mountains. The big mountain areas offer space for massive windfarms that are more cost efficient than Geos and combined with the many metal spots lead to massive income and thus unit output. In addition to that the sheer size adds to the maps hardware devouring characteristics.

Hint: Kick everyone who builds Geo, ban everyone who builds fusion.

This map has way to much metal. It plays like speed metal.

Why doesn't this have an FFA tag?

Is it a FFA map? people have been playing it with a vertical split.

@Willk - the problem is that we pre-configure Springie with start boxes so people don't have to write their !addbox commands manually.

But we can only do one Springie profile per-map. So you have to pick, either a map is an FFA map or it *isn't*. Otherwise you've got FFA boxes in a Team map and Team boxes in an FFA map. You can't have it both ways. This map may work as an FFA map, but it's obviously better as a team map so it's handled as a team map.

This doesn't work that well as FFA. There is too much difference between edges and middles.

I'd like to see how this plays NvS, where it is a lot less huege. So i've set the boxes that way.

If the distance to your opponents is significantly larger than the size of the front games tend to turn into a lot of parallel 1v1s.

These big maps are played with a lot of players. At least in normal games, I think it may play better this way, before left had a huge advantage.

Parallell 1v1's? Then we definitely need to try this map NvS.

Parallel 1v1 games are boring because you often end up with 2v1 in various places and a large skill mismatches.

Well unless it is 6vs6 or less you will not have Parallel 1v1.

Or maybe just remove this from official... it's bad for both FFA and teamgames.

I would be fine with it being removed. Athought NvS + amphibs + comm drop may fix it.
