The title says it all.

Perhaps someone could make a Triple Medium Earth map as there is already Medium Earth, Double Medium Earth, and Quad Medium Earth, so why not a Triple Medium Earth?


It would have a Triple Earth distribution mode for 3 teams/players, similar to the Quad Earth's 4 player/team distribution and Double Medium Earth's 2 player/team distribution. It's mostly for people with the free accounts who can only add up to 6 players.

Games with three players/teams don't work, since the ones who meet first will either kill each other while the other one grows, or ally and crush the third one.

I like the idea

Non-members can play 1vs1vs1vs1 (or 2vs2) on Quad Earth and 1vs1vs1vs1vs1vs1 or 2vs2vs2 on Double Earth.

How do you suggest linking up the three Earths; taking Quad Earth and simply deleting one of them is obviously not going to work. Do you think a "belt" (three Earths next to each other / above each other) would be best, or would you like a "ring" better (in that case... what places on Earth 1 connect to which places on Earth 2?)...?

Btw, Moros has a good point as well. Still, a six-player FFA (or a game with six teams) should work on a Triple Earth.

It would have to be in a ring format I would think, but I'd have to really think about connections to make sure it is balanced.

If you do it in a triangular form.

OP here.

I agree with Ironheart. The map should have 3 Earths in a triangle. The triangle's top corner should have names like "Alaska N," and the other 2 corners will have "Alaska SW" and "Alaska SE," from left to right.

As for the connections, Alaska, Anadyr (Russia), Hawaii, Russkaya, and Scott (Both Antarctica) should be the inter-Earth paths, similar to the Double Medium Earth and Quad Earth maps.

As for distribution modes, there should be the standard ones (Full, Random Warlords, Random Cities, Warlords, Cities), along with a "Three Worlds" distribution scenario where there is 1 team/player per Earth.

bigyihsuan,
That would make N Antarctica a mayor chokepoint from which you can block access to all of N Earth, while SE Earth and SW Earth can attack each other through Hawaii and (SE and SW) Antarctica. Your proposal would mean N Earth has a significant benefit over the other two Earths.

Yes, but to prevent that, Canada SE and Russia SW will connect to Antarctica N in order to balance out N's advantages.

Also, Canada N, Russia N, and Greenland N will all have 2 connections to the other Earths. The bonuses will have a connection to the SE Earth and SW Earth.

Just a note: When I say Russia, I mean ALL bonuses in the Russia area.
