PostSubject: Mountain of Gems   Thu Sep 22, 2011 12:10 am

I made a new map today, it is called "Mountain of Gems". It is a four player map designed for either ffa or team play. This was the most difficult map I have made besides "Operation: Free Osiris".

The geographic makeup of the map is set on a temperate island, being a mountain-like structure. There are three topographic levels. The lowest level has an ore patch for each base, and a hut overlooking each ore patch. There are access ramps for each base to get to this level. In the middle level, much more action takes place. It is where all of the starting positions are located, and each position is not far from the next one. Each base gets two ore patches, and an oil derrick. The derricks are all on the edge of middle cliff to the lower level. The upper level will be the scene of intense warfare. There are a lot of gems up there, and with it being the peak of the mountain, will provide the high ground for superior attacks and defense.


Strategies

Although the middle and top will see the most action, it is wise to get some units to defend the lower level especially as there is an ore patch down there with miners. Naval attacks are also an option, so investing in a naval force can help you as well. Mining the top is important, but not as important as securing your section of the mountain's apex. This way, no one can launch attacks safely from the mountain top. Basically, you must be prepared to defend all three levels, air attacks, and naval forces. This map provides many avenues for attack, and if you are caught unprepared, it could be your last battle.


Allies

Allies will have a hard time on this map due to the proximity of the bases. However, most commanders will be too focused on the top of the mountain to fight you at your base. Watch for splits on the middle and lower levels to catch you off guard and end the game. Harriers/eagles are a good option to help even the score up on the mountain top. Once you get late game units, you have the upper hand.


Soviets

Soviets will have an easier time in the early game due to the sheer power of the rhino tank. Mining the top is important, but if you are using all of your resources to secure it, stop and attack someone on the lower levels to draw their attantion away from the top. Splitting tanks works wonders here, but the ability to multitask is a must for it to work. Watch for air units and magnetrons.


Yuri

Yuri can be pretty good on this map if they are able to take the top. Magnetrons and gats will have a hayday here is left unchecked. Yuri late game will just seal the deal.The issue becomes good players who split their units and attack from other levels. Also, naval can be your downfall. Do not boomer rush. It will lose you the game.

Lol. Yea I think its a good ffa and 1v1 map. I was still able to hold him off with eagles, rockies,and ggis with minimal losses. But don't forget I was pwning you up top lol. I managed to get 3 grizzlies up there before kila came to my base. But I'm not mad about it. He did a strategy where he doesn't even worry about the gems and attacks your base. That's the beauty o the map. You can employ a number of strategies. The problem for me was I didn't scout him well enough to see it coming.

Well, I never threatened your base. I just wanted to mine gems and make it to late game. Kila and all of his wisdom ruined that Laughing

I didn't realize you were fighting kila and styx at the time. Map is utter chaos.

I know but its not fun when you leave your base and about to kill someone and some other just pumps out and attacks your base,he saves the other player + you have to get back to your base to defend it...It should be done in a team match not ffa.But yeah I don't mind it actually lol

After more online and offline testing, I will come up with a strategy guide for this map. It will be like the guide for Attic of the Arctic I posted earlier.

If Osiris would have been around during the golden age of XWIS, I bet his fame as a mapmaker would have been on a par with Map4You's at least.

Thanks Warhero Smile


Tow, that's the risk woth playing 3 man maps. Ffa in general is very risky. What I started to do is not lump all my units together. When I attack, I only bring a few of them and leave the rest to defend. This way, I stand some kind of chance. Teaming is lame, but it's part of the game. It wouldve happened on that map regardless of there was a fourth player or not.
