To be fair Zweistromland is all kinds of wrong. Poor yellow has no chance. If blue grabs the base north, red grabs the base south and purple grabs the base in the middle, yellow is dead.

completely biased for red and blue because of first move advantage yellow and purple don't really get a chance to respond if played right by blue and red

Go to Game Options in the top right corner and click Map Details. You are right though, this one does have a Blue > Red advantage. I've added it to the list.

River Maze is imo red biased because if red makes no major mistakes it should end up with a base more than blue.

Minor comment: The map has 14 bases. So the red would end up with 8 bases and the blue with 6 (that's two more).

I'm pretty sure he meant for an even seven-seven split but it turned out wrong. It does look like a tough one to balance off the bat though.

I meant 2 bases more for red.

Yes, I am aware of the bias in River Maze. I had worked on a 2.0 version, but I trashed it cause it became more of a regular map and not the type of map I was going for with the original River Maze. So now I'm on to a 2.1, but I took time to make some other maps before I finished 2.1. I'll published as soon as I get time to think about it.

Cool. I think it might be a good idea to link to balanced versions of unbalanced maps so once you finish it do let me know please.

How about Zweistromland with teams Red and Blue together. Red and Blue both get to take a base and leave the other team in the cold. Seems like the only people posting games these days are point mongers posting biased maps.

I don't think we want to start worrying about whether maps are balanced for teams or not, otherwise it will become a nightmare to determine and maintain. In general (but not necessarily true), if a map is biased for single player games, then it should be biased for team games too.

I think the primary goal is not to say, don't play these maps ever again, it's more about, go in with your eyes wide open and don't get screwed over for points on maps where you have little or no chance of winning. For some of these maps, the bias is small and so they are still fun to play, just make them unrated.

As I said already in the specific case of Zweistromland, it's all kinds of wrong and should just be avoided, period.

add this one to the list. blue can cap the southeastern base before red can block it. the converse is not true.

i dont want to seem nitpicky, but i think botanical gardens is slightly favored towards blue. there is water in the southern edge of the map where blue can sent hovercrafts to attack, but there isnt any water on the north for red to do the same...

sorry if i seem nitpicky....
