Any map troubles you come across - please write them down here and be exact.

We are especially interested in game-balance-breaking things like spawns behind invisible walls, but also other stuff that comes to your mind.

The spawn flags being placed on or near minor "bumps" which is a particular problem in the snowy villages.
When upright these tiny things are visible, but when "captured" and tipped over, a large portion of the flag becomes obscured by going into the "dirt" making it exceedingly hard to find as most of it is overlapped by the terrain.
I'm not normal and I don't pretend so, my approach is pretty much a bomb crescendo.
Death is a fun way to pass the time though, several little bullets moving in staccato.
The terror of my reign will live on in infamy, singing when they die like a dead man's symphony.

Last time we checked attacker's spawn point in Fishara was unreachable for capturing.  :wink:
Do you honestly think you have any sort of moral authority, Reyiz? Go genocide some more armenians and deny it ever happened, please, and stay in the middle east.

Okay I think at this point if that many villages have uncapturable attacker spawns, he'll look into all villages. Let's move onto some other map problems.

Edit by chadz: err.. no. that's exactly the point of this thread

You sure? i thought we took the spawn once during that battle but couldnt hold it... unless it changed since then?

just saw the siege on Dusturil, it was insane.
the attacker spawn is right below the village on the foot of the mountain village, making it insanely hard to defend attackers spawn.
attacker has to defend against villagers that are right on top of them  :shock:
the attacker spawn has to be moved, to make it more fair, cus even though the showup players where pretty equal 56 vs 60 and attacker had better gear and more troops, it was simply not possible to push upward the mountain village from this spawn position (taken into account with the new spawn rules).

The attacker spawn on Dustruril should be moved back a bit. Spawning at the very base of a steep hill is a very awkward place for a spawn, no good way to defend it.

Where did all the Desert villages go?
visitors can't see pics , please register or login

All of the desert villages in the south have disappeared. At first I thought this may be a problem with my computer or web settings, but the same error was also verified with 5 other players.  We all have different graphical mods for strat and use different browsers. So I think it's a strat bug. Has anyone else seen this?
