Draft Ideas Preview of the draft map ideas so far. Join The Team How to be a good Clan Member tutorial Main Idea We have all played Life of a Peasant, right. It's a wonderful map where Police, Mafia, Drug Lord and a bunch of peasants are trying to making a living while working, killing, driving, buying, selling and much more. With its great success in WC3 it's only a matter of time before a similar map will be released on Starcraft 2. So lets grab this opportunity and be the first to start a project that thousands of people will enjoy. However, in Wc3 - Life of a Peasant has suffered from huge imbalances and retarded remakes. Lets not make those mistakes. Protect the map and get it right from the first time. I am talking about balanced, dynamic, fast-paced and engaging gameplay that is fun to play for casual gamers, hardcore fanatics and even time wasting newbs! Here is where YOU come in.

Life of a peasant: Huge open world with unique and different gameplay, depending on your class and side choice. Kings and Knight: Working and playing for a king, having a boss. Dealing with superiors and subordinates. Battleships: Endless upgrades and ability possibilities. Monopoly 3D: All in real-time, buying and selling property, earning or losing money depending on your choices and game economy. Call of Duty: Game transferable rankings, perks, rewards and levels. This is very important for the replayability. Every time a player replay the map, he will make progress. Trying to achieve an ultimate goal or a medal/achievement. The map should be economy driven. Different events will have different impact on the economy/player income/prices , gameplay, difficulty. The map will also be player triggered event driven. Example: A player could become a scientist and release a serious virus that will turn humans into zombies/zergs. Suddenly the gameplay changes into the survival map. Improving the pharmaceutical and weapon economy, but destroying all other sectors. Successful player could gather enough resources to launch a nuke, destroying everything and ending the game, but earning an important achievement that would give him an advantage in the next game. As a player you will be able to join one of the 5 sides: -Law Enforcement -Gangs -Drug Business (harvesting crystal meth) -Industry -Just be a neutral citizen Players who choose the industry will have a fat paycheck, but will have to deal (turf money /protection) with police and gangs. Citizen, industry and police income will depend on the world economy. If the banks get robbed, a lot of drug dealers on the street, cops getting killed, the overall economy will be bad. If the town is upgrading, drug dealers are under control, properties are safe, economy will do well. Citizen and industry will also have an option to evade taxes (bonus 30% on the income). That also will result in bad economy. The cops would be able to trace tax evasion, and arrest non tax paying player.
