Re: Insurrection: Second Draft of Tyarin Campaign


What multi tile images? I'm confused. Anyways, thanks for the comments. What should I change? By the way, you should look at the second draft. What do you suggest?

I've just completed my first battle on the map. Overall a 
straight-forward superior numbers map, with the slight 
twist that this time it's the player who has more units :-) 
Some comments in more or less random order: 
* It's pretty big for a campaign start map. I'm curious 
  what this will develop into. 
* Personally, I'm no big fan of battles with huge numbers 
  of (near) stationary units since they usually make for 
  rather static gameplay. This one's no different. The 
  strong line of bunkers in your back makes for very easy 
  style of play. And most of my bunkers still didn't fire a 
  single shot. 
* The staggering amount of crystals at your disposal makes 
  it easy to keep a steady stream of reinforcements. 
* The fact that the enemy doesn't have any infantry makes 
  a) one of your objectives kind of silly (guess which one) 
  b) it even easier to always keep your troops in good shape 
* The harbour in the corner looks kind of useless... 
* Cutting down an entire forest for a group of reinforcements 
  is kind of unusual, I think. 
* You somehow got all of the multi-tile images wrong ;-) 
So, all in all an easy (which isn't bad for the first map of 
a campaign (unless you want it to be a hard campaign...), but 
it might be a bit too easy in places for it to still be 
interesting, e.g. with respect to the virtually unlimited 
amount of crystals) that is a bit too static for my taste, 
but that may be just me. See if you can get a few more 
opinions on that.
