    [WBMM] Map Information & Map Discussion

    We never got to test these out properly on the OCE MM servers, but, if new maps are wanted, I might as well post them here. Both are fairly small and were designed with 6v6 in mind; based on my judgement I'd think that Ghostbough would be a better MM map than Uzum Lakeside.

    I made some minor changes to both maps after the screenshots were taken.

    Some new maps for low pop servers

    Pretty happy with this as a fairly small battle map; it's got two closed flags and one more open flag out by the river.

    It looks like the issues with the barriers on Xauna may be occuring on the central thatched roof here; in offline testing, the roof is now inaccessible, but I was able to run straight up there when playing online.

    Elsewhere, the map looks much improved, especially the improved access to elevated areas, the new lighting, and the renovated outside area. If the map is updated further, I think that removing the ladder in the lower area of the map and adding a staircase in the area shown below would offer major improvements to how the map feels.

    Skirmish Xauna

    From walking around the map it looks much improved; the added cover on both A and B and the new secondary spawns look great. Thanks for these changes and for the detailed post. Look forward to seeing how it plays.

    Spear Infantry

    I think the movement speed needs to be increased a bit and it would.be nice to see glaive or 2h added as a perk because there is currently no medium armor inf that is fun to pay as khuzait.
    I'd also like to see the glaive as an option; on TDM and Siege it is clear that the Khuzait are the least popular faction amongst casual players, and I strongly suspect that its lack of a cheap 2H class is the reason. Since glaives can be used with shields, I think it would fit best in the first set of perks, replacing the long spear option (and replacing the short spear when chosen, rather than adding an extra weapon).

    Skirmish Town Outskirts

    Perhaps moving the main spawns slightly closer to the flags would help with those problem areas, although I think that the better solution would be implementing the community's suggested changes to cavalry instead.

    Skirmish Town Outskirts

    I think that many of the issues I have with this map stem from the linear setup of its flags. As @Caps described above, the platforms overlooking A and C are always the go-to areas, because with this linear design all of the tension in the map is around the central flag. With it taking so much longer to move between A and C by any path other than through B, the central flag at B will always be both the most important and least likely flag to be taken on the map.

    splOiFH.png
    I don't expect that it is likely to happen at this point, but ideally A and C (sorry that the overview seems to have them reversed) would be moved slightly closer to each other - and, additionally, would have a path connecting them that does not lead through B. B would be moved slightly closer to the right hand spawn to allow for a triangular shape to develop, and, crucially, would be made no longer visible from the platforms by A and C. This would obviously require a lot of work across the map, but in my view it is the most important change to make; I also hope that future maps, which, from what I've seen in the files, look to have similar linear structures, will be changed before they are released. It's also worth noting that I don't believe it is necessary to have both sides of the map be balanced in their distance from the flags as all three skirmish maps currently are.

    Something that I've seen a few people mention on the forums is that despite the map being quite enclosed spatially, it plays much like an open map would, benefiting archers and cavalry. A significant factor contributing to this is the extensive visibility a player has across the used sections of the map. It allows archers to shoot from a greater distance than they should be able to, and also means that cavalry, who in Warband might have been forced to be cautious about being reared by a spearman hiding around a corner, can basically track the positions of the entire enemy team by themselves.

    The raised stall areas by A and C are, in my view, leading contributors to this issue. The mesh used in the stall shown in the first screenshot is a welcome guard against archers on A, but I think that we would be better off if it were replaced with wooden boards which block sight onto the flag, and I also don't think that it should be possible to shoot onto the flag from where I am standing in the screenshot. In the area shown in the second screenshot, it would be preferable that the wall be raised, or the terrain around it lowered, so that an archer is forced to step fully around the corner if they want to shoot onto the flag. For both of these areas, however, it is important that it is still possible to shoot, from some angle, into the raised platforms; this is displayed at C by the third screenshot, but the same goes for its equivalent position on A as well.

    cOnzzDM.png
    I largely enjoy playing on A, but I think that the back platform area is underutilised and important for balancing the platform across from it. The first change I would make here is, as the arrow hopefully indicates, to bring the left-hand building towards the direction of B by roughly a metre. This will slightly close up the main entrance to the flag, making cavalry and archery very slightly weaker on A, and also decrease the time it takes to reach the platform on the far side of the house. The second change I would like to see is for the steps down there to be moved directly adjacent to the house as shown. This is important for the final change, which is the addition of some kind of wall or other barrier on the corner of the platform which covers a player from the platform area (the drawing I have made here is just a flat wall, but, depending on how it feels, it could also extend around the corner as well). Although it is a minor change, this barrier has the potential to significantly counterbalance the strength of archers on the platform on A, which, in turn, could lead to other sections of A being used more than they currently are.

    MIi8Bwn.png
    gQ8r5iT.png
    B is the most problematic flag, and I can't really think of an easy solution to its problems (the best, in my view, is to move it so that it is not directly between A and C, as I outlined above). In both of these screenshots, however, the dual entrance points make both couched lances and archers - whose strength in the area is already exacerbated by the raised platforms - stronger on B than is ideal. In the first screenshot, the left path could be removed by bringing forward the arch; in the new corner, some kind of defensive area could be made for archers which is less oppressive than the current layout. The same goes for the dual entrance shown by the second screenshot: here I think that it may be sufficient to move the central building forward, so that an archer in the left alley cannot shoot onto the flag unless they step out past the building.

    I really like the feel of C, particularly the back area around the tree. The first change I've suggested here is to block off the most extreme path around this side of the map: it serves very little use for anyone except as a quick getaway or entrance point onto C for couching cavalry, who don't need the help that an exit point on every side of the area offers them. The second change is a very minor one: the roof shown in the second screenshot has a significant gap in it, visible from both ends. From memory, this is the case on a few roofs around the map, but this one on C is particularly noticeable.

    I wouldn't be confident about any further suggestions to the map, aside perhaps from some alteration to the spawn areas, without first waiting for changes to the combat system. Thanks for reading.

    Add "FACE" Hitbox with separate armor value provided by helmet item

    You have the same amount of armour on every body part. you do the same amount of damage no matter if you hit the head or the arm or the leg
    a face hitbox with the current system would literally do nothing

    Armour is uniform but there are different multiplying values for hitting the legs (0.8 ) and head/neck (1.2 for blunt and cutting damage and 2.0 for piercing). Still, I see no reason for a face hitbox: when considering gameplay, why punish people for being hit in the front more than when they are caught from behind?

    Resolved Nord Town pillars making the wrong sound

    When striking these pillars on Nord Town, it is typical that they make the sound of their straw roof rather than wood. As the video shows, they can still make the wooden sound - I'm not sure precisely how to reproduce this,but it seems that strikes which extend around to the back of the pillars...

    I really dislike that players can walk onto the thatched roof in the centre. If you fight on there, the gameplay gets really bad - worse than underwater gameplay in Warband. But obviously the archers go on there all the time. I've even seen them on the other thatched roof nearby. Since it can be difficult accessing the roofs in some places, it almost seems like boundary breaking.

    I can't believe I forgot to include it! That roof area is the worst offender of them all and should just be made inaccessible; it can see far too much of the map from relative protection, and, as you say, trying to get up there to stop someone is awful when navigating the ridges of its thatched roof.
