Testing Capture system in LW orange today
« on: November 29, 2006, 10:33:04 AM »
We are testing out a new field capture system
in the LW Orange today.

This system should allow us to use large maps
with lower populations.


The new system only allows fields to be captured in
A certain order. Fields that are currently capturable
by your country are shown as larger icons.

To display the field capture order, right click on map
and click Field Order.

Sounds like a good way to create... "Target Rich Enviroments" Should be a blast....

I know your only testing but if this works, have you thought about making a perked version of the C-47 with "SAS" type troops so you can capture a rear base....

You could always make it that bases that captured behind NME lines dont get resupped by strat...


Yeah early days yet just sorta popped into my head when I read your post....

Agreed. Glad to see things evolve in a way that encourages players to fight each other. Hope it works as expected, been impressed with the gamerz ability to game the system before.

Just an assumption here but I would think that it would be front line bases first... Again just an assumption....

Might not be a bad idea to have Skuzzy "trip over the cord" for LWBlue. Only a handful in Orange, with the other 180 in Blue.

Also appears to be one bug in system. Some boarders are not capturerable that should be.
