    Quote from Herminard: “@fjugin Is there an official statement that the A pack is better suited for competetive play and the B pack is better suited for narrative battles? ” A-maps are easier logistically for a tournament organizer (since less terrain and perfect overlap with the terrain pack). But for the actual games, no. Each tournament organizer should make their own assessment on this.

    Quote from Dancaarkiiel: “Map B7, second field (lower one) can't possibly be 36" to the side. More like ~42". ” Quote from Morrigan: “Is this a good place to ask about errors in the map pack? Map B5, ruins in the middle, seem to have the wrong distance from the short table edge. If using the measurements (24'') found in the pack it overlaps with a fence. 28'' seems to be the correct distance. ” Thanks for getting these to my attention. The map pack have been updated with these issues fixed the-n…

    The general idea is: - If you are using 2D terrain from the terrain pack, use A-maps. They are made with that terrain distribution in mind. You can create 3 maps with one pack, 5 maps with 2 packs, or 8 maps with 3 packs. - If you are not using 2D terrain, or have a lot more terrain that the number of tables you are using, B-maps can be considered. In general, A-maps are probably better suited for the most competitive games/players. B-maps are leaning a bit more towards the immersion side of the…

    Quote from joss: “Is it planned for each map to finally have an unique deployment after beta ? It's soooo much nicer for game preparation. Other than that, I feel that it's a good set of map, looks original and fun. ” No, that is not the plan. Intentionally random deployments. To maximize variation. That was the given premise when maps were created.

    Quote from Dancaarkiiel: “Map B7 - top field and ruins are both marked as within 27" from the right edge. ” Thanks. Will fix Quote from Dancaarkiiel: “Also all diagonal pieces aren't aligned to the specific lines (supposedly 45°). Is this intended? ” Intentional. Those lines mark deployment zones for refused flank, and therefore aren't 45°.

    Quote from rzmoz: “Hi, looks really great! Will there be a version that's more printer friendly to the toner (white bg)? Or could you release the master files? The green bg is using up quite a lot of tone. Printing in grey tones doesn't really make muxh of a differende toner-wise. Thanks for the great job otherwise. ” Printer friendly black and white version is a great idea. Expect this to be included in the next release

    Quote from LastKnight: “Question: Can the Wall in Map A1 be chosen as King of the Hill Objective from the upper player (Frontline Clash)? Wall is 11" away from the board edge and 1" wide. So outer edge is exactly 12" away . Deployment Zones are 12" from the middle, so it can be argued that the Wall is not full inside the deployment zone. But is difficult and also applied differently on tourneys. So my Feedback would be that such situations should be avoided and terrain should be either clearly f…

    Quote from VampsinMD: “Quote from fjugin: “Quote from VampsinMD: “Had a saved version of the game to verify! We played on the 10"/16" version. Moved the terrain and looked much better at 13/13! ” Oh, we are talking about different terrain pieces. Impass on the right is still 10/16. Building on the left was changed to 13/13.I believe this setup is fine. It gives a nice advantage for selecting side (south is better when playing spoils), which was one of the aims for the map pack.

    Quote from Casp: “Cool a map inspired of my set ! ... But.. I really do not recognize any of my map .. Are you sure its map 4 ? Its based don wich one ? ” You're right. The map creator is actually @VampsinMD Sorry about that. (you have another map included though) Quote from VampsinMD: “Maybe moving that impassible as little as an inch or two ” Did you use the updated version? Moving the impass an inch or two was exactly what we did. 13"/13" from table edge.

    The poll is completed and results are in. Best maps have been vetted and currently layout is ongoing. This has been, and still is, a time intensive undertaking. But, to keep you all informed on what is happening, I wanted to drop some spoilers along the way. Here is the first official map. Map 1. Created by @matrim (might be some minor adjustment to the original work). Wouldn't it be great if we could have these official maps in universal battle? Is anyone is interested in working with me to rec…
