War has broken out recently from a troubled peace due to the appearance of a mysterious island. Choose a faction and fight for dominance in this world of war where the only hope for victory is through conquest. Discover secrets and trade blows in this map of kinetic connundrum.
The multiplayer map is balanced high. What do I mean by "balanced high"? Well what I really mean is that this map is definately not symetrical and all the factions start in unique situations with different starting resources, but it is still balanced as well as such a map can be balanced. To test this I took each faction to day 50 to see how much resources I had aquired and they were all fairly equal. I find that while it definately affords no perfect balancing such maps are more idealic for me to play because it makes things interesting.
You can expect to get a good 5 hours out of a multiplayer game with this map. You will also very rarely find yourself with nothing to do while the conflict builds up, there are many secrets to discover and strategic locations to conquer while still not cluttering the map. Speaking of secrets.
This map also features a unique way of treasure hunting. There is shadow world on the map but there are no entrances, instead each faction is given a stone with the shadow shift ability. There are unique areas around the map where if the stone is used you will discover a secret shadow area with treasure. It's something many of the people I've played with enjoyed and hope you enjoy as well.
Single/co-op Player Description:
The single player map is fairly similar to the multiplayer version except you can only choose between two factions and the other factions have been bolstered to provide a better challenge. It makes for a great singleplayer challenge or even a co-op game.
I'm a bit confused! Somebody has posted a comment here suggesting that this is a Dwiggs map, but the description says it's Standard Rules. However I can't make either of the maps load under standard rules - anyone else had this problem? I haven't downloaded the dwiggs version, only the "standard" version
