I want to host 10x10 maps for 4x4 games

Postby Harout » Sat 24 Sep 2016 11:17

I enjoy wide open maps cause:
-Scouting in the fog of war is thrilling and even more important also it allows for skirmishes.
-Need to have reserves for exploitation of breakthrough or countering breakthroughs.
-Battle plan is needed because you can never cover whole map.
-Less Clusterfuck™ more freedom to manauver and flank.
-Wide front less susceptible to cluster artillery.
-Airspawn is far away and not a panic button.
-Supply has a whole new appreciation.
-Commando and Guerilla, asymmetrical play more viable.

Large maps dissolve the DOTA style lane fighting which to me ruins the authenticity that wargame brings.
Players who enjoy their 4x4 hosted on the narrowest and most cramped 1x1 maps can continue doing so.

Some anecdotal notes: Some players in teamspeak have a nervous breakdown cause they cant deal with the uncertainty of
large maps. They are like cats caught in the headlights hahaha. Another dude went raving mad cause his bombers took a long time to arrive.

I think that's not an actual problem, except you can't do it with the default lobby hosting but only if you're hosting your own server. No idea why it's been done like that though

I think there is something in the modding forum that allows you to host games with a bigger variety of settings, including 10v10 maps. I don't know if it is still compatible with the current Patch.
However, I think Eugens stance on hosting these lobbies is that they are not necessarily happy if you host public lobbies with settings that are normally not available. Not sure if that is still the case, that was the last thing I heard.

actually before one of the last patches, it was impossible to normally select 4k points in 2v2 maps, but you could do so through a glitch in the UI (no modding of game files needed whatsoever, worked with vanilla install jfyi). and no one ever seemed to complain.

so I don't think there's actually any issue with this unless explicitly stated somewhere

Yep, 4k starting options for 1v1 / 2v2 maps came with a pretty late patch. But yeah, I am not 100% sure on the statement, and maybe it is outdated.

There is a mod for that that works perfectly in multiplayer, and what is better - only host of the room needs it.

Dunno if the creator of if it is still alive though, each new patch requires updated cersion of mod.

+1,

I don't see a reason why we're getting these limits.

Playing such big maps would make it a lot more interesting for 4v4/3v3s.

Really miss WG:EE where those maps were commonplace. It would be nice if they added this in a later patch, as in the first Israel DLC that is coming up shortly.

There is a little glitch you can have a 4v3 max. With all 8 slots open put a computer
or anouther player must be kicked. Set game to private or else it could revert right away.
And set one of the 8 slots too Open, which will remove the Ai. The map will go too 10v10 as it may change player count temporarily making it swap too a 10v10 map. So yeah you can have a 3v3, 2v2 or even 1v1 on a 10v10 map not of your choice.
