By putting the sea in the middle it stops suisilos on the joining borders.

And the same can be done with EU, ever heard of suisilos?
This design was aimed to stop that.


But I can sail europe around. In your design I cannot, or did I miss something ?

No ships, only one airbase

That dilutes sense of the whole contest, that's what I think.

What do you mean?

It's not a scouting contest, but a blind nuking contest.

Well in my comprehension scouting is used for making marks, on which I then shoot nukes without having locked positions, and that's why I call that "blinding". Scouting is a very important thing. Something tells to me that by taking this out, we are making up blinding action "in a vacuum". That what I mean by saying that it dilutes the sense of competition.

You need carriers to do that?

Usually I use carriers in real games for marking silos. Not a dork airbase bomber which I will need to fly around my opponent's silos to get them, in case of a single far-forward silo.

Well, in that case I don't see why the map couldn't be adjusted to allow for a ring of unpopulated land (reverse moat) to prevent the carrier from getting silos with it's radar.

You mean a donut-like territory for a nuker and a round island inside that 'donut' for nukee ? Alright. Do you have anyone on mind who would do such mod ?

I can do it (have done mods in the past), but won't until we get some of the ideas worked out.

Fine, that'd be very nice of you. By the way, what do you mean by amount of used nukes ? Precise overall count, or amount of single-targeted salvos ?
