Or not.

Yes, it is the complete opposite.

Why is this map pending for an A-rank anyway? It has obvious balance problems. You know a map is gimmicky when Lash out of all COs is broken on it.

It seems it would have been better to just stick with Deserted Beach.

Taz, now that the obvious truth of the map being garbage has been revealed, I assume our match will be restarted on a decent map. For example, Deserted Beach is starting to seem quite awesome compared to this.

Why exactly do we play on this unbalanced map that has 2 broken co's (autoloss if you don't pick them) and FTA?
Why were the broken co's not banned? (some nonbroken co's were banned.)
Why did ultra get to pick sides (he got to pick sides in our previous game too, but it didn't matter there) and pick the side with FTA? I wanted the side with FTA too.

edit:
The map is even in the leagues (FOW league) and there's people getting lash on it. With my newly found map comitee power I oughta put the map in the toy-box joke marked for deletion category until the mountain artillery running around on day 2 are out of my sight >:(

This reminds me, wasn't the map committee only supposed to rank maps that have been properly playtested?

Well, that's kinda hard.
On a side note, this topic is now one year old.

I apologize, I didn't anticipate this.
I played on the map, but on my game the artilleries safely stayed behind the pipes...

So, okay, remake the game on Deserted Beach...
So, you think you're good at AWBW?

Why would the artillery stay behind the pipeseam?
Desrted beach is kind of stalematey.. but ok. I'll be away for the weekend, so I'll join after that, or I'll join but not get a lot of moves in.

I'm posting a double post to remind benbever that he hasn't joined the game yet.

Random bump so that this topic won't be forgotten. Also because Taz is somewhat around again.

Furthermore, I demand interest for my 2 lives z_z

Yes, I just ended my vacation mode after 11 days, and was planning my move, then when I wanted to move my AA it wouldn't let me, and I noticed the game had AET'd.
Can this be fixed/reversed so I can take my turn?

edit: I even went to all sorts of trouble to prevent this. Went in china to an expensive hotel internet service to set my vacation flag, asked smackcakes as a backup, came back yesterday evening but only ended vacation mode today this morning so as not to run into the boot/aet script which supposedly runs at midnight US time.
