If you click this link: https://www.warlight.net/SinglePlayer?PreviewMap=41413
(same like above) please don't use your professionally view, but mind the simple information you'll get.
Click on a circle-Territory within a Bonus (marked with a darker hexagon-background). You will notice that the circle-Territory becomes blue (because you selected it) and the circle-Territories around becomes yellow (because they are connect to your selected Territory). Now don't click anywhere else and take a look to the Stadium ranks. One rank became blue, too (because your selected circle-Territory is combined with this territory!) And some ranks became yellow. In fact, they are not connect to the blue rank, because they are combined with the Bonus-Circle-Territories which border to your selected circle-Territory.
Take the famous Medium-Earth-Map: Ireland is part of the territory "United Kingdom". Say you showed a picture of "Medium Earth" to a WarLight player who has never seen it before, pointed at Ireland, and asked them, "What territories does this connect to?". Maybe some will answer: "This territory connect to "United Kingdom" because there are no visible connections between Ireland and France, Germany or Iceland. But if this guy play the Map, he will recognize immediately that Ireland and United Kingdom is one and the same Territory. Because they become the same color and only one Territory contains the Center Point which shows the Number of Troops. And only from this point possible Attacks are shown with that red and blue arrows (like on my Map).
And I bet, 95% Warlight player will recognize the concept of my map at the latest after turn 3.
If they don't? So what! They rate the map 1/5. And soon the Map will disappear on the Map-cemetery beneath the 3.0 Rating where only Lottery survives.
I will add some more explanations on the Map. And I hope this new and not usually (but playable) Idea will get a chance. It's no problem, if you hate the Idea, but mind that the 100th Map of Europe will become boring, too.
Hey, Bane! This is my mail that Fizzer answered with my posting above:
I receive following message answering my last try publishing the Map https://www.warlight.net/SinglePlayer?PreviewMap=41413
All territory connections must be visible on the map. In other words, it must be possible for a reasonable person to determine what territories exist and what they connect to just by looking at the map.
Please allow me to ask for a concrete requirement.
· Should I connect the Circles in the Hexagons (Arena) visibly?
· The Gates in the Arena and in the Catacombs are one divided territory. Should I connect them visibly?
· The Stands are no fighting-arena. They are part of the bonus-territories in the arena. The Idea is that the spectators become fans of a player, symbolized by becoming his color. - I know, this is a new feature that didn't use in any Map before. But in Testgames the players understood the concept without explaining.
· Or is it the connection between the gates and the first two hexagons in the arena?
Please excuse my misunderstand.
