Deciding BanLists

Postby Completeduck » Fri Feb 03, 2012 7:45 pm

Recently created two new maps, both are small and base lite. How can I decide to whom right away to ban? Right away I'd go broken five, but any others I don't have much of a clue.
In this map, http://awbw.amarriner.com/prevmaps.php?maps_id=56958
I decided that Sami and Hawke should be banned, b/c Sami's victory march and infintry spam makes her too powerful in an infantry heavy map, and Hawke's D2D gives him an serious edge on such a small map. Even if these are wrong, who else should I consider? I think Adder's speed allows him to turn capture contested cities, and push for the HQ too quickly, but is that OP?

And with: awbw.amarriner.com/prevmaps.php?maps_id=56929
How can I decide?
I WANNA BE THE GUY!

First, as far I'm concerned the map-maker doesn't have to be responsible for deciding ban lists. But if you really want to provide some guidelines, you can base it somewhat off of the Official Tier List.

when you make a game just decide who you want to ban.

The easiest way to do it is just ban the broken 5. But really it is up to you.

If you are doing a tournament that is something else, but if it is a casual game it doesn't really matter.

No, but I remember looking at some old threads that say something about them.

Thread derail, go!

That sounds so much like "Oh, I dislike three, let's go illuminatus style, let's perma-ban five COs."
If you know the enemy and know yourself you need not fear the results of a hundred battles.

Is it 'taboo' to ban all CO's except for one?

I usually do this when playing with friends to keep things even. (usually choosing Andy, because his super power is moderate compared to other CO's)

Nothing's really taboo for casual games with friends.

But I mean with strangers.

Is it discouraged on this site?

There's nothing wrong with that. If someone doesn't like your settings, they don't have to join your games.

The safest thing is to ban everyone that isn't low tier or below anyone above's power just disrupts the gamesplay - where they're more subtle.
