Let's say you put up a sign: "Gasoline on sale! Only $1 / Gallon". You would get a lot of people stopping to buy gasoline.

If you then told them, "Oh, I don't have gasoline. I'm only selling flowers" then you would upset a lot of people.

If you instead put up a sign that said, "Flowers for sale" - you would have some people stopping hoping to buy flowers, not gasoline. The people interested in buying gasoline would go elsewhere.

In the case that made absolutely no sense to you - please don't advertise a very easy map as being "hard". People who are looking for an easy map will not play it, and people who want difficult maps will just be disappointed.

But hey, maybe you enjoy making people upset and disappointed, so if that's what you're going for then mission accomplished. I'm not upset, btw... just disappointed. I was looking forward to a difficult map, and I ended up finding a map that I'm just going to skip and mark "do not show this map".  :-\

And please... how hard is it to spell "level" and "prepared"? Even if you don't speak English, try Google Translate.  :P

You disagree with this sentence, don't you?

I agree, but this was unusually... potent and I don't mean the map ;)

Lol, so true. When skunk spray is an improvement, you know it's gotta be bad.

Come on guys, play nicely! Half the times set are over 30mins, the creator set a time of 1hr. Everything is relative, it is a hard map and it is an easy map. And a kind of inbetween map.

This map would be very hard, if you overestimated your ability in the beginning and started losing units.
The "fighting from out of a pit" maps are always like that.

But yeah.. If you have any idea of how to setup your initial start correctly, it is trivial to to point of boredom.

Well, after all the above comments, I thought I ought to give this one a try.
If nothing else, I might learn what got JH up on that soapbox (he's using MY soapbox again).
Sadly, my CW3 can't connect to the server.

I could (gasp!), just shut down my computer and go read a book...or run all over the website posting in threads.
What do do, what to do?

Night all.

No need to nitpick spelling and grammar. Typos are easy to make when uploading the game, that part doesn't have a spell-checker, and once submitted, there isn't a way to fix typos.

Wow, totally didn't anticipate such discussion from this map  :o

Sorry for the grammar-check. It was mostly based on my certainty that judging from the "prepaired" (which isn't a typo, but you're right... spelling doesn't really matter) that the author would likely never read the forums.

Decided to play the map anyway and obviously didn't start from the middle because my RL name is Obi-Wan and I love saying, "I have the high ground!"  :P

The map actually isn't that bad. It's just... it's just what it is. Something can't be what it's not. But the fact that it is makes it better than what it could have been, I suppose.

You disagree with this sentence, don't you?

99% of you have no idea what I'm talking about (which also applies to most of my posts).

Happy Friday to all y'all.
