14p map

Postby penguinruler » Tue Jun 26, 2012 6:19 pm

Is there any good, balanced 14 player map? None of the ones that I've seen are very balanced. One country gets more cities, better positioning etc. I realize that its extremely hard to make a balanced 14 player map, but we need one for a match for people at our school. Airports are preferred, ports are not wanted :P

Its probable that this ideal map doesn't exist. If not, whats the next best thing?

While there still might be some FTA issues on this map I don't think its possible to find a 14p map more balanced than this one

What kind of thing are you doing at your school that would require something like this anyways?

This is probably the best you'll get:

Thanks for the suggestions!

We've got 14+ people interested in a FFA or team match. It's taking so long to organize, so I thought that I could look for a good map in the mean time.

It can be FFA or teams of 2. Our schools doing teams of 2, so yea. You'd be teamed up with the person across from you. Suggestions/advice plz!

Honestly, I'm not really sure what the best way to make a 14-player map would be. I've never made or played a map meant for that many people...

Pretty dam good for a first try, especially since there really is many 14p maps to get inspiration from. Though I'm definitely not one of the map guy one suggestion I would make is to add more in the center in the way of cities or towers since as of now there just is not enough incentive to do anything but fight your closest neighbors.

Making a massive number of players actually work on an AWBW map?

Sounds like a challenge.

Made some minor edits, so go check it out. Once the game starts, I could start a thread chronicling how it's going.
