    Because hitting people with the lightsaber hilt is more damaging than hitting them with the glowing bit, and punching them in the face even more so.

    Just in time for the next funmap evening, we've managed to get out a patch. We've fixed several embarrassing and some smaller mistakes that made it rather difficult to play the map properly, so it should be better now.
    One thing we noticed even in our own tests was the overwhelming number of units that could flood the Forsaken land when people didn't tower properly. So we added a logic that reduces the number of units based on the number of players in the game, so that there should always be around 30 surviving attackers, but not more than 60 even if people forget to build towers at all. The matter isn't entirely settled however, since I have the suspicion that counterintuitive strategies in towering might offer an advantage, which would sort of defeat the purpose.
    We also added a system to adjust boss HP and damage based on the number of players, so that they are always defeatable, but still a challenge.
    And since apparently the average Bnet player is no longer able to recognize a hero selection when it's standing right there, we added a small tutorial to the first few minutes of gameplay. It's not much, just explains some game functions that we thought were self-explanatory, but apparently weren't.
    The new map will be tested at the funmap evening, and, assuming everything goes right, uploaded to the bots next week.

    And thanks to us, mods for our approval. This map deserves a place in the Spotlight (Hosted Projects).

    Anyway, I saw that you submitted your map the Sections, is it already finished? Out of BETA or ALPHA? Because ALPHA or BETAs are not allowed on the Maps Section, needs to be fully finished.
