Too high command points income > force more players on bigger maps > get players unit to be destroyed more often > keep player armies smaller == no problem in high income but players have problem that they can not play than few maps with their friends or alone.

That is the logic what Eugen use.

So lets fix the cause and not the effect:

income 30-50% lower command points income > allow all maps to be playable in 1 vs 1 to 4 vs 4 > every unit has more meaning > game gets more strategical features where player needs to plan what to buy > units gets destroyed often on player who has bad strategy and tactics > armies stay small == no problem in game and players can play what ever map they want.

Fix: Give for the host a menu to select income from 0.5, 0.75, 1.0, 1.25 and 1.5 multiplier.

One reason why game is bad is the forced player amount on maps.

But if any of you have played siege then you might have noticed that there are a couple of maps that you cant chose in destruction etc hov about making them available as well as opening up the games.

Right now eugen you are not doing your own cause any good by trying to limit what the players can do, with the few maps in each category where most becomes rather tedious after 5-10 games why not add play-ability instead of limiting your customers choice your behavior is pretty condescending that we as players cant figure out how many players can play in each map, your probably right i am so dumb that i want to play 10 vs 10 on highway to oslo i am sorry eugen i will never do it again sorry

Well the maps were designed with a certain amount of players in mind, so there's nothing wrong with it saying (4v4) as a recommendation, but there's no reason to stop people :)

The trouble is that this would only open up SMALLER maps for 3v3 and 4v4. Opposite of what's needed as the 3v3/4v4 maps are already overly cramped and puny as they are.

Strange feeling of deja vu with this thread. Oh well, +1 for personal choice anyway.

Let us play

+1 again, I really enjoy ALB, but the map selection/limitations has hurt the game...when you have a night set aside to play with friends you are limited to a small number of maps.

Please, give us right to choice. We know that maps were designed for a certain players number, but this limit really hurts the game at the moment. If somebody will see that insane 4vs4 on a small map doesn't fit him, then simply he won't join that game type again, simple as that.
