If you want you can choose / balance anything you like in "The River" map -> in my opinion since the map is 2 dimensional (or 3 or 4d)? the building space is not that important and counting the big, medium and small buildings they seem very equal : ) feel free to correct if you want change anything

With elven forests you have a big problem with building spaces at start and i agree world it isnt balanced any it was used yet.

Check the River again ; ) i played some excellent games with kaputtnik on the map which were real exciting (im my opinion better then last bastion)

In some suggestions I found last bastion as open map. @king_of_nowhere suggested it once but di not use it for a blocking issue I can't evaluate. @WorldSavior can you help me with that. If there is a bloccking issue, would woodgnome be an option. (I beleive you may block others from entering your small island, but in this case you might not have enough space to plant enough trees.

Last Bastion is a bad map, for wood gnome its terrible. I'd appreciate better maps. Inselkrieger has a rating of below 5, which is rather poor

We played only one game, not some. Typical overstatement from the-x …

I wouldn't call it open. It's all islands with only a few passages between them.

Well, wood gnome with bad tree growth is at least a challenging combination. face-smile.png

well I already proposed an open map obviously

so my new proposal for Round 3 is: Four Mountains from the official maps.

It should be balanced for all players (though some tribes may have an advantage)
I couldn't find any reference for tit ever being used in a tournament

I think it's acceptable, though not ideal. One thing is that it's another map where you don't need geologists. The other is I don't think it's well balanced: the North-Western side of the coal mountain has very few available building spots for mines, and the gold mountain isn't much better either. The stone and forest blocks (not again! face-wink.png ) at the feet of the mountains are also very different. But the ways to turn these to one's advantage are not obvious. So as long as the 2 players can agree on starting positions, it may be acceptable.

IMO Elven Forests looks much better, as everything is scattered in small spots randomly.
