High Forts

Post by raaar »

High Forts.

Control the map, then take over the enemy fort! SW vs NE. 2-8 players.

(version v2)

a 16x16 map with relatively safe bases, good for 1v1 to 4v4.

South West VS North East.

2-8 players recommended.
(8 start positions set)

Special Rules:
- Units, features and projectiles that fall through the fog are removed from the game


It relies on luamex support (and includes its own gadget for it), which means that the metalmap shown on springlobby is blank, but you can see the spots easily on the minimap on the lobby clients.

I like the concept of there being deadly unplayable areas, with nice safe bases :)

Thanks :)

relatively safe bases on an otherwise "normal" map is a rare feature, it's a niche that needs filling because the various games tend to snowball too hard towards whoever gets map control (even on MF). Early T2 should be more common, even if only on some maps.

There are some but they're often too big for 1v1/small teams and the safety is achieved through being on the corners of a rectangular map, which is too restrictive.

The fog areas can still be used for air battles or as path for air drops into the bases or some kind of wall/cliff cheese.
